I pray that I can be awarded with this scholarship so that I can go on and become an influence to those who are close to me.

Rosalyn T  on 8/5/2019 4:59:15 PM

I along with several other coworkers were laid off our jobs unexpectedly, I have been working in my present field for over 30 years and it has been a blessing but unfortunatly my body can no longer tolerate the stress of lifting patients, Being that I have worked in the nursing home setting for so many years I have a passion for those who are transitioning through the last cycle of life. Even though my job has ended I believe this is an opportunity to peruse a career as a hospice Chaplain and or crisis Chaplin, I truly believe this is the area that God is calling me to, I have over 100 credits that are able to transfer to the Bachelors-in Christian Counseling degree, I with goal is to advance toward the Masters in the Chaplaincy program but I will need assistance getting started since I am not working at this time.

Robert C  on 6/6/2019 12:10:22 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I am struggling to get my Master's degree from Keiser university because of financial aid support. At this time, I have 4 more classes left to graduate, but I don't have any financial assistance. Even though I have been trying to get any other possible help, my situation remains the same. As, we all know, education is the key to success. With a master's degree, I will be able to help the community where I live in and for a better future of myself. There’s no other way people can be successful in life without taking the road of education.
