I always dream of studying abroad since I was a kid but I can't due to our financial problems. I grew up in a poor family so I am trying my best to find scholarship grants. If I will be chosen, It is the greatest opportunity for me to treasure. I wanted to help my family without asking them for money. Thank you and I hope I will be selected.

My dream always has been to be able to study abroad, make a different in my life as well as others. Being selected for a scholarship will not only help secure my spot but it would help make a difference in my life and give me a new perspective of the world. I will be able to volunteer and travel the world while receiving my education in the Criminal Justice field. With any help that I can get I will be one step close to getting the education of a life time. I would love to be considered and I were selected I would be grateful. Thank You

A scholarship can make a big difference in my education. The money from a scholarship helps by allowing me to be more selective in how I spend my free time. I'll be able to maximize the college experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities and internships. This scholarship is a blessing for me, number one. It means a lot because not only is it helping me with college and I'm very honored to be getting the award. My career goals are teaching psychology ; that is what I will be majoring in. With this scholarship and the need-based grants I have been awarded, I can complete my education and continue to solve problems within my community. These are the areas I plan to serve. I am grateful to be considered for this scholarship opportunity, and should I be selected, I will use it to advance my physiologist education. I appreciate your consideration, and I look forward to building a lasting relationship with your organization.
