Applying to enter the Health Care Administrative world and exit from Retail Management. Im 48 years old and taking care of my daughter whose 8 and mother 74.

vickie t  on 1/21/2015 7:31:39 AM

I applied for this scholarship because I want to continue my college education. I am 46 years old and I want to finish with my BA program where I left off and don't want to fall too far behind. I have already missed enough school because I have to somehow pay out of pocket which I can't afford right now. I have an 8 year old in school and I want to make a better living for her.

Becky J  on 12/14/2013 11:18:06 PM

Of course I applied for this scholarship because I meet all the criteria for qualifying. When I started this educational adventure I was displaced from domestic violence and living in a homeless shelter. That certainly was better than being a homeless throwaway teen whose last completed year of school was the 8th grade. This is why I'm pursuing a BA in sociology: To plan, develop, maintain, analyze and improve runaway homes for throwaway teens. Plus I have to have a bachelors in order to earn my masters degree.

Tammy C  on 10/5/2011 9:51:41 AM

Yes, I applied for the scholarship. The reason for applying, I am 45 years of age; returning back to school to major into another career due to my illness and being able to continue working in the workforce. I have one child at home, in high school and looking to make a difference in her life, as well as mind. I want to be that inspiration to my daughter/children that it doesn't matter the age, but what do matter is being determining to achieve in life as a provider of your home.

TONI P  on 2/11/2011 2:23:15 AM

I applied for this scholarship because I am in hot pursuit of my first BA degree in psychology. I will then go on, hopefully, to obtain my Master's and go into counseling full time with an emphasis on our military who should be home by then. Being disabled right now, I look forward to re-training and getting back into the workforce. With this scholarship I can continue my education without building more debt in the process. With my pursuing higher education, my children will pursue a higher education as well.
