I am currently applying for this scholarship because I need financial help for my schooling. I am a rising sophomore at North Carolina A&T State. University as a pre-nursing major. My mother and I had to move to Florida my senior year of high school because we. could not afford it there anymore and she is a single parent overworking herself, doing all she can to make sure I have stability in school. But, I am still short from by several thousands for school. I want to pursue my dreams of becoming a emergency nurse so I can take care of my family. This funding will help me and my mother out so much. Thank you.

I would be the first person in my family to enter university, and I would like and need to be a good example for my two little sisters. I also to serve my community the best way I can.

This fall will be my first year in college. For all my mom's sacrifices to get us in the U.S to have a better education, it's my time to pay her back. Despite the abundance support of financial Aid, the full year fee of the university I'm attending does not equate that. I will be undergoing an engineering major to be an electrical engineering to finally assist my mom to have a decent life than what we have now. Thank you for providing this opportunity, as I will need all the assistance I can grab to live the American Dream.

Thank you for the opportunity you give me to start my studies in Anthropology. I decided to apply for this scholarship because I have a perfect example of what is to reach the American dream in my Cuban family. I also have a dream, to become an Anthropology and to discover the history behind the objects, language and culture of old civilizations.

I am entering my junior year of Nursing school and found out that I am $8,000 short on tuition for my last three quarters. I am 48 years old trying fulfill my lifelong dream of taking care of others. My completion of nursing school depends on finances. I am saddened to think that I may not ever become a nurse because I can't afford to pay for my last 6 months of school!! Even if I am not the chosen the winner, Iwant thank you for caring enough to help others achieve their goals and dreams!!!

I knew from the beginning that I wanted to go to Cosmetology School. I love making people feel good about themselves and Charles & Sue's Cosmetology School, will provide me the skills I need to do that. Besides FAFSA, I do not have any other financial help, to pay for school. My parents, are not able to help me financially, reach my dreams. I would love the scholarship, to help me pay for school starting in September. This would make my American Dream come true!
