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.

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.

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!

I am currently planning to study abroad this Fall semester 2020 in Spain . I have a passion for the Hispanic community and I want to equip myself every way possible, to make a difference in my community. This scholarship would open that possibility for me. I am a Second Year in College studying a major in Sociology and minor in Spanish. I intend to take classes in Spain that will help me understand society and the Spanish language in a more efficient manner. How can I find out my eligibility for this scholarship?

Elizabeth E  on 1/4/2020 8:34:44 PM

Good evening, Happy new year. I was curious, I know the requirement is to study abroad, but I was just accepted into Towson University. I plan on studying International Studies, which studying abroad is encouraged. I am a mother of two kids, I have a full time job and will soon be starting school in the fall. Would I qualify or not. Thank you, Elizabeth E
