I am an Armenian citizen with permanent residence in the US I was adopted along with my brother who is bilaterally hearing impaired. My family has gone through multiple losses in the last few years and my father's income pays for household expenses. My mom is on disability and has been diagnosed with cancer. It has been removed but she cannot work full time. I have been accepted at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield Ct. I hold a 3.7 GPA and I'm a conscientious student. I am pursuing speech pathology and swallowing disorders. I have been offered a scholarship and have joined the work program but it leaves my family with 31,000 out of pocket. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am applying for this scholarships because I come to the United States of America in 2017 and I am raised by a single parent (mother). I want to study further and reach my goal. So, in this case I need more money because my major is biology and I want to become a dentist and it is a very long and expensive career. But, if I get this scholarship it will help me in my financial problem and I will give my best to reach my goals. I want to help our community by providing them some heath care in the future so to fulfill my dreams I need this scholarship. I always like to participate in extracurricular activities and in my school activities also. So, I will let my mother down and I will reach my goals one day. This scholarships is a way for me to start my career and I am really looking forward to get it.

Being an Astronaut has always been my dream. Most of my teenage years growing up in Bangladesh, I didn't have that opportunity. Now after immigrating into the US in 2016 in 9th grade. I believe it is my time to prosper. Now also being accepted into my dream college Stony Brook, one of the few colleges which offer Astrophysics. The financial disability is the only obstacle now stopping me from going to that college. That's why I applied for this scholarship. Because I think it relates to me, my past and if I win, it will affect my future.

I am applying for this scholarship because growing up I wasn’t raised by my mother or father and basically I’m on my own trying to pay my way through school. I want to purse my dream of becoming a physical therapist so I can help people in need of assistance. This scholarship will not only be helpful, but it will also be a blessing it will help me pay for tuition, books, and room and board
