I couldn't apply because my parent is unemployed

I have requested an application for this opportunity. Being the fifth of seven children to a single parent, one currently enrolled in college, the financial responsibility lies solely on my shoulders. Receiving this scholarship would impact my financial picture, tremendously!!!

I applied for this scholarship because my dad recently lost his job. my mom was a stay at home mom, but now she is working as a waitress, which doesn't pay much. right now my family is struggling and Im not quite sure how I'm gonna get to college.

april p  on 1/8/2019 12:38:30 PM

yes. both my parents work in financial industry so of course I will print the information and send my request in as soon as possible. Just because they work in the financial industry doesn't mean they make a lot of money to put me thru college. Any help I can get thru scholarships is greatly appreciated.

If my father no longer works for a financial institution I'm I still eligible to apply for this Scholarship? I do qualify by other means based on my GPA.

Abby S  on 2/14/2018 12:16:46 PM

Yes, I did apply for this scholarship because I could really use the money for books and boarding expenses. This is considering the fact my mom is putting two children through college by herself.

Emily M  on 1/31/2018 7:01:50 PM

If my mom works for a hospital and part of her job is financial with regards to insurance and copays, would I qualify for this scholarship?

Christopher G  on 1/30/2018 4:39:53 PM

My father works for the US Mint, Treasury. Does this qualify as financial service?

Joseph K  on 10/4/2016 9:42:09 PM

I could not apply because my mother is unemployed. Wouldn't it make more sense to give scholarships to the applicants whose parents do not work?

Arely V  on 12/26/2015 2:10:25 PM

I could not apply for this scholarship because my mother does not work in a financial service industry

Josh H  on 2/17/2015 3:52:13 PM

I'm going to apply for the scholarship. I've kept my grades up for the last 4 years and plan to do the same when I'm in college.

This has been a very helpful site. It makes everything a little less stressful!
