I am applying for this scholarship since I have been paying for classes out of pocket. I am 20 years old and working and going to school is not too bad but having the extra help could allow me to take more classes each semester as I would like to.

I am applying for this scholarship because being a recent high school graduate and started a new full-time job is not easy. I am only able to afford as much as I can and my mother has enough stress than to add on helping me pay for college.That where I draw the line. I am a 19 year old undergraduate student and I am only beginning to know what it is like to be an adult. I always wanted to become a nurse because helping childrens and other adults. The smile of a young child/adults is something that makes me think I can change the dont matter what i work as. Helping people in the medical feild is something I was born to do in life. The reason im applying for this scholarship is because I am going to purse this dream but financial im going to have run into some bumps.

I am applying for this scholarship because I am getting my A.S and achieving my prerequisites to get into the radiology program next year. Which I will achieve the radiology tech degree and go into the work field. Currently, I am a twenty year old working a full time job as a vet tech in which I have managed to afford an apartment where I support my two dogs, and gathering the money for a car payment on top of that. As of right now, I am getting my A.S and achieving my prerequisites to get into the radiology program. I have worked hard for what I have achieved and still continue to work hard for the things I want in life. When I graduate I hope to be able to start my own organization either my own shelter for dogs in need in the mean time I am working on starting up my own online store for pet products. I have dedicated my life to helping animals and after working in a kennel for two years I finally found my place in making the world a better place for animals.

I’m applying for this scholarship because I refuse to let the set backs that life has thrown my way define my future. With the help of this scholarship I would be able to afford to go to The University of South Florida which has an excellent Speech Pathology Program. Recently I’ve had to work extra shifts to help with hospital bills that have burdened my mother. If I’m rewarded I will not only have more aid but I will be able to live on campus or near the campus which will put myself in a better learning environment.

Joel C  on 1/3/2018 5:20:33 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because being a recent high school graduate and started a new part-time job is not easy. I am only able to afford as much as I can. I am a 19 year old undergraduate student and I am only beginning to know what it is like to be an adult. Between paying for student loans, car insurance and as well as other basic needs, I am in need of assistance financially. I recently started my college education back in August and I think it has been going very well. My hope is to achieve my A.A and transfer to a university to obtain my major in Psychology and my minor in video game design. Trying to obtain a scholarship is a hard feat to accomplish and so far, it has been really rough. I have tried over and over and it was close but not close enough. I hope that with the help of this scholarship, I wanna turn my pipedream into a foreseeable reality.
