I would be honored to receive this scholarship as it will help me continue my studies in the United States. As well as help me become the first member of the family to complete my bachelor's degree without interruption. I am thriving to honor and make my family proud of my achievements of leaving my home to fight for my dreams.

I have a strong passion for animals and nature and want to do my part to help them. I am currently enrolled in a Veterinary Technician online course but have the opportunity to to study abroad in South Africa to gain hands on knowledge of Safari Animals as well as gaining knowledge for wildlife conservation. I grew up literally the middle of nowhere surround by nature and all its glory; my parents lived off grid in Montana. I don't have the funds to allow me to pay for this chance and neither does my family. I would be the first family member to get my college degree and the first to see another country instead of never leaving the West Coast. I would be very grateful to receive this scholarship and a chance at a lifetime to experience something I never would have dreamed of.

I would be very grateful to receive this scholarship. I come from a very low income family and I will be a first generation college student. It would really help me obtain my bachelors degree in criminal justice. I plan to minor in forensic science and become a forensic scientist in the future. I am a very hardworking and determined student who puts my absolute best into my schoolwork. I want to set an example for my younger brother that no matter our circumstances, we can accomplish anything with hard work and that an education is important.

I really wish to get this financial aid as I am going to take up an online distance learning offered by Geneva college and each course fee is higher than what I earn per month and is distressing for me. I need to make a career switch in order to have a better quality of life and also make a positive impact to the community with the knowledge I acquired. Thank you for your consideration.

alexandra L  on 2/18/2020 12:55:37 PM

With this scholarship i will be able pay my way though school and the books. But this scholarship will not only further my career and who i aspire to be but to also change statistics on low income Hispanic families. Change the stereo types put on Hispanic and Latin families jobs such as picking berries, house keeper or construction. To show other young ethnic families that you can succeed and be who you aspire to be, to not settle for what society may think our hierarchy is.

Shaye L  on 2/11/2020 12:28:35 PM

I would really appreciate the opportunity to get this scholar ship because neither of my parents went to college and they are wanting me to go. I have decided to major in nursing and get my EMT before my associates. The money would really help me strive to reach my full potential. Thank you!
