I applied for this scholarship to assist in funding my education to gain a Master's degree in Social Work. To emancipate others from their darkness and struggles only fans the flame for a brighter world. I need your help, to help others.

I am a Canadian resident, and I will be attending Niagara University in Lewiston New York. I have been accepted into the Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counceling program and will start this September. I am wondering if I would qualify to apply for this scholarship? I would appreciate it if someone would contact me at their convenience. Thank you so much.

I applied to this scholarship because I am working on my doctorate in psychology. I am a behavioral therapist working with children with autism. My financial is almost run out, so unless I figure something out soon, I will not be able to continue my degree program. I should be able to obtain my BCBA by the end of the year, resulting in a bump in pay, but there will be two school quarters in between where I have no idea how I will pay my tuition. I want to continue learning and be on the cutting edge of my field.

I applied for this scholarship to help aid in funding my Master's degree for Social Work. It is my God-given strength that I aid people in need. It is my passion to spread awareness about taking care of oneself and their mindset come what may.

I did not apply for this scholarship because I have not yet finished my undergraduate courses. I am looking for scholarships to help me complete my undergraduate studies so that I can obtain my educational goal of earning a Masters in Psychology. I want to specialize in counseling and addictions. I have found that I have a great passion for working with victims of sexual abuse/assault.

Ms. Sanita: My name is Gregg Ramsdell and a retired member from the US Army. For the past 31 years I have seen those around me and as I rose through the ranks, those who I have commanded. I am in need for a scholarship for the use in Psychology with a focus on PTSD. I am a 100 percent service connected disabled with multiple combat tours. I feel I can really assist the younger soldiers, law enforcement and other servants in understanding this affliction and be able to live like normal. I am retired from the military and wanting to advance my studies. Ma'am, I am inquiring about the scholarship and feel I can be a valuable asset to our young hero's. Thank you for your consideration. Gregg Ramsdell, US Army Ret'd

Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans. The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
