Hello!! My name is Maria Castro and I am a high school junior, I graduate in 2021 which is going to be great! I come from a low income family in Maryland and am the first to go into college. At high school I have played year round sports while being in the IB Program as well been in my class SGA. I recently just got voted for our class President for our senior year. I have taken French since 7 grade but recently dropped it because of my IB classes. My cumulative GPA is a 3.8 and I really want to attend UVA or BYU and go down the pre-med path. I hope to become a pediatric neurosurgeon because I love kids and the brain fascinates me. I want to be different and change the lives of people. That is why I am choosing to go to college and work in the medical field.

I am currently going into my second year of college at Cal State University of San Bernardino, I am a Computer Engineer undergraduate with only one source of income from my Mother. I have a 3.1 GPA which does not meet the requirement but I am working hard for a better GPA. With the help of this scholarship I will be able to buy all my essential utensils for school as well help my family on a financial standpoint. During this pandemic I have lost my job and have constant stress of getting my family sick especially because my Mom is a Nurse, so if she gets sick she would not be able to work. I will use my Computer Engineering skills to help people that are going through the same or worse circumstances than myself, this is my one goal that will happen.

Cinthia V  on 5/25/2020 8:08:03 PM

Hello, My name is Cinthia Vides, I'm in my second year at a community college, planning on pursuing my dream to become a nurse, I'm applying for the nursing program this fall, I'll be the first generation, who would graduate from college, but I know there is a long journey to get to that point. These past two years have been very difficult for me and my family to be able to cover all of the college's expensives, I believe that the Fontana Transport Inc scholarship, would be very helpful to continue my education. Thank You.

Hello, I am currently a high school senior and I plan on attending college this fall to earn a degree in either engineering or architecture. I participated in a few extra-curricular during my time in high school but not as many as I wanted to due to social anxiety. Some of the activities I participated in include Piano club, volunteering at school events and teaching children in Sunday school, Track and Field, Interpretive Dance etc. My GPA is a 3.5. I also fall under the category of "low-income and first-generation college-bound students" due to my parents having to relocate to Africa because my grandmother was sick. I now have to attend college with no financial support from my parents. I am currently living with my sister who does not make enough to pay for a college students tuition.

Zach B  on 4/13/2020 12:16:56 PM

I am hoping to receive help to pay for college as my Mother is considered low-income and my Father died when I was 6 yrs old. My dream is to be first in my family to attend and graduate college with an engineering degree. I have worked very hard to get into my first college of choice and extra money to help pay would make my Mother so happy. Thanks so much

My name Is Luis Padilla. I am a 39 yrs Hispanic Male. As a child of immigrant parents, I learned that through hard work and determination anything is possible. Although my parents didnt speak English to well, they constantly worked in order to financially support my siblings and I. As a teen I became a product of my neighborhood environment. And learned the hard way that Life is what you make it. I had children at a very young age. And struggle as a young man. But even In the midst of my struggles and life choices always I knew I was ment for something more then I had limited myself with. I found myself at my lowest in an addiction. And through the grace of GOD. I was blessed to have the opportunity to go to the Diablo Valley Ranch Rehab in Clayton, Ca. It was there that I found my purpose. And how I became motivated to enroll into school. So here I am a 39 yr old married Hispanic man, with 5 kids. Going back to school to follow my dream in becoming a drug and alcohol counselor. I start school April 15th at Purdue Global University and will be majoring in Psychology and science of Addiction Counseling. Success is triumphing over hardships -- willing yourself over anything and everything to achieve the best for yourself and your family. With this scholarship, I will use it to start focusing on my studies in psychology and science in addiction counseling. It will be an investment into myself for my family. Thank you for taking the time in reading this and considering me. -Luis Padilla
