I am looking for assistance to assure that I will be able to attend school Fall 2020. I am a senior in high school and have a significant change in our family dynamics, so the assistance that I was hoping to get, was made clear in the last year, will not be possible. I have good grades, am involved and work weekends to save money but am unsure if it will be enough, so am hoping this would help me get going. I have the will but need to find my way. Thank you.

I am a senior in high school looking to further my education by going to college but need financial help to continue my goal, with my unfortunate situation i live with my grandparents trying to get all the help I can receive.

Talyssa M  on 3/25/2020 2:07:51 AM

Receiving this scholarship money would be a great start towards paying off my college loans. I'm a senior in High School, in the state of Arkansas, and this has been the most expensive school year of my life. My family is middle class meaning: I have food, clothes on my back, and a place to lie my head at night, but with my family being in the middle class bracket, it is assumed that I don't need assistance with finances. My mother is a teacher in Arkansas that gets paid less than the work she does, and it's just not enough to help with my college expenses. I would say I hope that I'm selected for this opportunity, but if its not in my favor I will accept it. Thank for opening doors for us conquers.

Sariah R.  on 3/23/2020 12:14:06 PM

I am a high school senior who plans on attending a four year university with a major in nursing and a minor in criminal justice. I am applying for the scholarship to help pay for my books for my degree, nursing and criminal justice require several science and history textbooks that can be more expensive. By having the money from the scholarship I would be able to ensure that I could pay for my textbook materials in order to take my classes.

Christopher C  on 3/21/2020 8:04:48 PM

I am a 29 year old father to 3 children. I am looking to finally take a step in life to show my kids that if you put your mind to it, it can be done. I am the first one in my family to ever attend any type of college, and cannot wait to get started.

Felix S.  on 3/21/2020 3:00:46 PM

I am a third year in college, ready to transfer out. My major is Computer Science with a minor in Business Marketing. My goal it to pursue a career in cyber security, or web development. Currently I am considering San Diego State University or San Francisco State University, and the scholarship would aid in living expenses, room and board. My overall gpa is a 3.0 in college and in high school I maintained a 3.7 gpa. Financial aid can only cover so much and any funds would help greatly.

Casey C.  on 3/20/2020 7:20:15 PM

I am freshman enrolled in a college that is out of state and on the opposite side of the country. Transportation fares add up along with paying for housing/groceries etc. It is hard adjusting to a new life where I have to learn to be completely independent without the help of my family. I have only completed one semester so far and it was a struggle having to pay for many things such as tuition (out of pocket), when that money could have been used for food, clothes (winter clothes specifically) and many others. Though there are many other deserving applicants, any money is helpful.

Katrina Lind  on 3/20/2020 2:11:03 PM

I'm a high school senior, class of 2020 in Nebraska . I'm really wanting to be the first person in my family to go to a four year college. I want to be a Spanish teacher or a translator/ interpreter for government agencies. I can't afford four years, or even one- two years of college ( general education classes) on my own. And I really don't want to be worried about if i can afford college, while I'm attending it. Even just a little help will go a long way.

Muna Kamara  on 3/18/2020 4:01:35 PM

I am currently a sophomore in high school. I am applying for this scholarship because I want to be the first person in my family to go to college. And with this money, I can start saving up.

I know this scholarship will help me get a headstart on my career.

Elexa Richardson  on 3/18/2020 3:22:16 PM

I am a high school junior in Dallas, Texas. My goal is to attend a four year university and later go on to medical school. I came from a very blessed household and I wanted to take some weight off my parents since they have blessed me with allowing me to attend private school all my life and never going without anything I wanted.

Kayla R  on 3/17/2020 2:28:19 PM

Kennedy J.  on 3/12/2020 8:21:17 PM

I'm currently in need for this scholarship to help out with buying textbooks for the next two to three years at current college I'm attending. After those four years all be doing another four years at Pharmacy school. Financial aid isn't really doing much help with covering some of my expenses for school, so it would be a stress reliever if I had something to help pay for my books and other things I may need.

Sheena J  on 3/11/2020 8:00:49 PM

Currently I'm looking to obtain the funds for me to pursue a higher education at a four year university. I know, unfortunately, that financial aid won't cover all my college and I need the stability to properly focus on my major which is English with a minor in journalism.

Autumn M.  on 3/11/2020 7:39:39 PM

I will be a returning college student; I got pregnant and had a lot of complications. I lost my son December 2018 and finally going back to school. Its been a long journey, but I'm ready to finish my goal. I am tired of working a minimum wage job for little money. Its time for me to get back on my feet. I was in foster care my whole life and just want better. But its hard to make dreams work with low funds.

Sarah G.  on 3/11/2020 2:45:09 PM

I was accepted into this tremendous program but I did not receive financial aid which I was counting on. I am applying for a scholarship here so I can hopefully still make my hard work in applying to Harvard's Pre-College Program and joy of being accepted in taking an astrophysics class this summer at Harvard work out where I can pay for it and attend.

As my family of seven immigrated to the U.S. we lost our home, jobs and didn't have much money left. We struggled for many year financially and now that we thought we were stable, I have to go to college and I dont have a scholarship at hand.

Taylor Caldwell  on 2/15/2020 1:37:50 PM

I'm currently in my first year of college and being a full-time student with 16 units. Along with school. I'm working part-time just to order the basic necessities of school supplies, gas to get to class, and paying for the classes myself. I grew up with a single mother because my father died when I was four years old. Although she gave me everything possible, she can't afford to pay the bills and send me to college herself. With that being said, spending the money I earned while working on tuition and this scholarship money for the things I need most importantly would help me greatly and relieve the stress of making ends meet.

Adam N  on 2/5/2020 7:26:51 PM

As a freshman in high school, some might say that this is too early to start thinking about the cost of college. I'm grateful that I have parents that make sure we work together to choose a college and not to rely on student loans as the fall back to pay for college.
