I am 35 year old, I am Deaf woman but I would like call myself hearing impaired. I withdraw two college due no support from my father. I feel a failure every day when I wake up but I would like to change my life and do something with my life for better and have a good career. I've lack focus when it come to college because I need more education due my knowledge learning in school. I know I'm very smart woman but I believe this will help me finish degree or my career so that I know I won't be able to worry about college fund due begin Deaf. Every jobs I applied and interview they always denied me because they are fear to put extra effort for me to be able work and communication with my customer, I give them so many offer for me to work but it seem it not thier range I would like to be manager one day or own a business to only hire disability people so they know that working make big difference. I would like to go to Galludent Or Rochester Insistute for the Deaf would be easier for me to understand Deaf or Hearing Impaired Teacher. :)

I am 45 years old and raised 4 kids on my own. I've suffered some major tragedies along the way. In 2009 my 15 year old son died from medical complications. In 2020 my youngest son died in a car accident. I need to show my daughter we have to keep going. We have to stay strong. I've wanted to go back to school for a long time. I'm hoping to encourage her not to give up and follow her dreams even during the darkest of times. This is something I've wanted to do for a very long time and I'm hoping it will help me to stay strong. Thank you

I am technically considered a senior citizen at 57 y/o. Although that is enough to scare me into not continuing my secondary education I decided to blow past that. It is indeed a daunting thought. Why would I want to get a Masters's of divinity? Because i should and i can. Because I never finished because life got in the way, health got in the way and finances got in the way. this is how you can help a 50+-year-old minority finish strong. I am 30 credits away and you could make it so I don't have another excuse. At least not financial.

I would have applied for this scholarship but I attended an accredited college which shut down 2 weeks before finishing my associates degree. Luckily I had started out for a different degree and had some extra credits and was given my associates degree with honours. I wanted to attend university of Wisconsin for cyber security boot camp and I was looking for a scholarship to do that. I’m about to turn 51 and wanted to get my education completed. I’m out of work due to COVID-19 and figured it’s a great time to finish this. Please let me know if there’s anyway I can get a scholarship at my age and in this position in my life.

My dream is to become a software engineer and my mom is unable to pay for college and I have been a great student. As a child of a single parent and minority, it would be a dream come true to attend one of the top universities because I know I can do the hard work and up for the challenge, but money is the only thing standing in the way. I already started on great projects. please help me make this possible to go to the highest level. Thank you! Denzel D.

I hope I've a realistic chance of procuring this scholarship! I was an Honors Program student at a 2 year school, perfect 4.0/Dean's List, Ed of paper, chosen for the Harvard UN Debate but my then-husband insisted I leave school to run his business. Now I want to achieve my dreams of a successful medical career but financial constraints limit me immensely. If I had this scholarship I could follow my lifelong dreams at last and contribute the few gifts I've been blessed with and help others. I'm praying!

I would love the opportunity to enroll in a program that will help me get my education off the ground. I am trying to get a certification as an Esthetician and the funded will help with my shortfall of education assistance. I am a grandparent of twins helping my single parent daughter. I relocated to Texas from Las Vegas so I need some kind of career going to help our family. 2020 has been rough for our premature twins born during the COVID crisis. So any help will get me off to a great start. Thank you

I really want to be a paralegal when I retire from my job as a correctional officer, I wish that I had become a lawyer but this is close enough for me!
