I am an Armenian citizen with permanent residence in the US I was adopted along with my brother who is bilaterally hearing impaired. My family has gone through multiple losses in the last few years and my father's income pays for household expenses. My mom is on disability and has been diagnosed with cancer. It has been removed but she cannot work full time. I have been accepted at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield Ct. I hold a 3.7 GPA and I'm a conscientious student. I am pursuing speech pathology and swallowing disorders. I have been offered a scholarship and have joined the work program but it leaves my family with 31,000 out of pocket. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am applying for this scholarships because I come to the United States of America in 2017 and I am raised by a single parent (mother). I want to study further and reach my goal. So, in this case I need more money because my major is biology and I want to become a dentist and it is a very long and expensive career. But, if I get this scholarship it will help me in my financial problem and I will give my best to reach my goals. I want to help our community by providing them some heath care in the future so to fulfill my dreams I need this scholarship. I always like to participate in extracurricular activities and in my school activities also. So, I will let my mother down and I will reach my goals one day. This scholarships is a way for me to start my career and I am really looking forward to get it.

Being an Astronaut has always been my dream. Most of my teenage years growing up in Bangladesh, I didn't have that opportunity. Now after immigrating into the US in 2016 in 9th grade. I believe it is my time to prosper. Now also being accepted into my dream college Stony Brook, one of the few colleges which offer Astrophysics. The financial disability is the only obstacle now stopping me from going to that college. That's why I applied for this scholarship. Because I think it relates to me, my past and if I win, it will affect my future.

I am applying for this scholarship because growing up I wasn’t raised by my mother or father and basically I’m on my own trying to pay my way through school. I want to purse my dream of becoming a physical therapist so I can help people in need of assistance. This scholarship will not only be helpful, but it will also be a blessing it will help me pay for tuition, books, and room and board

I'm applying for this scholarship because of my choice of going to college. I haven't applied for this scholarship and I hope I win the scholarship. It will be a huge for me winning this and being able to have less student loans.

Senator Outlines Student Loan Relief in New Proposal

July 30, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the current chairman of the Senate education committee, has recently proposed the Student Loan Repayment and FAFSA Simplification Act, a piece of legislation that would allow students with no income to forgo federal student loan repayments. His recommendations, which he developed with bipartisan support, would also simplify the FAFSA and reduce the number of federal loan repayment options from nine to two. [...]

It’s Not Too Late: Guide to Appealing Financial Aid

July 28, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Have your financial circumstances changed due to COVID-19? You’re not alone. Many students and their families have faced unemployment, reduced job hours and general loss of economic stability in the wake of the pandemic. And as the FAFSA determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) based on income from the previous year, students may have greater financial need now than they did when they initially filed for federal aid. Unfortunately, the deadline to submit the FAFSA passed at the end of June. However, it is not too late to appeal your student financial aid from your chosen institution. [...]

The FAFSA: Why You Should File (And How!)

July 23, 2020

by Izzy Hall

The FAFSA is a critical tool for both applying to colleges and applying to scholarships – in fact, need-based scholarships often require that you submit the FAFSA as part of your application. So, in a time of economic uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, it’s surprising to learn that many low-income and minority students did not submit the FAFSA for the upcoming academic year even though they would’ve been eligible for federal aid. At Scholarships.com, we don’t want students to miss out on any form of college financial aid. Applications for the next academic year will open soon, so get prepared by reviewing these FAFSA facts.
