My father passed away and my step dad left so it’s me, my mom, my baby sister, and my cousin the money she makes only helps with the bills and some of the food in the house. She doesn’t make enough for me to go to a good college so I’m not sure what I’m going to do after college but I need this money if I want to even have a chance to go to the colleges I got accepted to.

I couldn't apply because my parent is unemployed

I have requested an application for this opportunity. Being the fifth of seven children to a single parent, one currently enrolled in college, the financial responsibility lies solely on my shoulders. Receiving this scholarship would impact my financial picture, tremendously!!!

I applied for this scholarship because my dad recently lost his job. my mom was a stay at home mom, but now she is working as a waitress, which doesn't pay much. right now my family is struggling and Im not quite sure how I'm gonna get to college.

april p  on 1/8/2019 12:38:30 PM

yes. both my parents work in financial industry so of course I will print the information and send my request in as soon as possible. Just because they work in the financial industry doesn't mean they make a lot of money to put me thru college. Any help I can get thru scholarships is greatly appreciated.

If my father no longer works for a financial institution I'm I still eligible to apply for this Scholarship? I do qualify by other means based on my GPA.

Abby S  on 2/14/2018 12:16:46 PM

Yes, I did apply for this scholarship because I could really use the money for books and boarding expenses. This is considering the fact my mom is putting two children through college by herself.

Emily M  on 1/31/2018 7:01:50 PM

If my mom works for a hospital and part of her job is financial with regards to insurance and copays, would I qualify for this scholarship?

Christopher G  on 1/30/2018 4:39:53 PM

My father works for the US Mint, Treasury. Does this qualify as financial service?

Joseph K  on 10/4/2016 9:42:09 PM

I could not apply because my mother is unemployed. Wouldn't it make more sense to give scholarships to the applicants whose parents do not work?

Arely V  on 12/26/2015 2:10:25 PM

I could not apply for this scholarship because my mother does not work in a financial service industry

Josh H  on 2/17/2015 3:52:13 PM

I'm going to apply for the scholarship. I've kept my grades up for the last 4 years and plan to do the same when I'm in college.

This has been a very helpful site. It makes everything a little less stressful!

Free College? Check Out These Tuition-Free Schools!

October 15, 2020

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we help students find scholarships to pay for college tuition. But what if you didn’t have to pay tuition? There are a handful of schools in the U.S. that are tuition-free, meaning that while students may have to pay for room and board or meal plans, they do not have to pay tuition to attend the college. On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]
