Hello, I am a 57 year old female who is finally ready to return to college to finally complete my degree. I have always known that a degree in psychology/counseling was my long term goal. It has been a long road and I am now preparing for the final push for this degree.

Jovia A  on 12/21/2021 1:13:55 AM

Hello , my name is Jovia Alexis . I am pursuing a career in Technology. It has been almost 10 years since I pursed any form of education. Since I obtained my degree in criminal justice I have been working as a child welfare worker. I’ve been blessed to have been able to ensure the safety and well being of children and families for over 7 years. However enjoyable and fulfilling , I am excited to embark on a new adventure that will allow me to have some availability for my family. I must admit that the decision to make this career change has been bitter sweet. I’ve become accustomed to the feeling of purpose that I receive from the work that I complete and meeting the high demands that are included with my job duties. I hope that I am selected for this award as it will assist me upon this journey.

Lawanda L  on 2/12/2021 1:33:20 PM

My journey has been long, but it is not over. I believe that each chapter of our lives is foretold by that journey. I have seen and been through my share of trials and tribulations, but my legacy has yet to be laid, and is awaiting the foundation. I am ready to embark on that journey that will add to that foundation. I truly believe, that although my children are grown, and I have grandchildren, I still have so much to show them about life. Our rewards are those that we have laid for our generations to follow. I got this! and at 53, I will not rest until I have finished my goals! Aim High and reach for the moon as you pass by the stars.

Hello, my name is Jennifer and I am very much looking forward to furthering my education! I've always had an interest in how money and finance works, but haven't pursued it because I didn't have much confidence in myself. I am currently a waitress (I have been a waitress for 13 years) at a wonderful restaurant, but I have been feeling quite unfulfilled lately. Receiving this scholarship would mean a lot to me because it can help me return to school and make life better for my family and I, and help me reach a goal that seemed too hard for me to complete for so long.

I had to return to work early though, should still be out on disability due to my complications of my recovery, but my family needs the income. My line of work is all labor and on my feet for 10 hours.

Ethel c  on 1/18/2021 1:44:02 PM

Hello. I am a veteran, who is a LVN at the VA. I currently live in Daly City, CA. It's hard to go to school because I don't want to be broke again. After graduating LVN school, we were broke for a year, and it was bad! I've been wanting to back to school to get my BSN, but the fear of not providing for my family scares me. I would like to be a RN because I feel like I can help veterans more than I can as a LVN.

Vilma K  on 1/10/2021 12:10:28 PM

Hello, I am applying for this scholarship because I want to pursue my career. I came here in the land of opportunity, the United States of America when I was 20 yrs old, and started with not understanding and not able to communicate English at all. After all struggles, disappointments, and failures, I started to embrace the fact that life is not fair. My self confidence became stronger and had built me a great foundation. I am currently working full time at this time but when I start 16 credits of nursing classes this spring, I can only work part time. I am a head of the household with 2 dependents. I will use this scholarship to further my education to become a registered nurse. I am blessed and got accepted to the traditional nursing baccalaureate program. I believe that one person can make a difference and If I am a registered nurse helping people in any way, I myself can make a difference. I will not give up. I will continue to do my best to succeed because I know I can make a difference.

I was bullied and beaten up in grade school. I was labeled as a special needs (special ED kid) because of my dyslexia. In the 1980's they didn't understand my condition. I went to the public library every day to study anything I could in the Giant GED study they offer to study in building. I scored very well on my tests. I have learned to study in a way that helps me learn. I have had to work hard to over come obstacles. Financially I am Not able to go back to school. I would be very grateful for the assistance . Thank You. Kathie Jones

Shaun J  on 12/27/2020 9:06:04 AM

I am currently an LPN for over 20 years and I decided to go back to school after raising my children to obtain my BSN. I am inspired by women in their 50’s that decided to continue their education and that continue to be my motivation.

M. L. L  on 12/22/2020 4:46:08 PM

I am a **Disabled Veteran**, but that was not within the Selection Criteria, which I found strange. I have been trying to finish a Bachelor Degree for over 35 years - 25 of which I served in the Army. Between Deployments, Children, and Missions, I have not had the available time to finish college. In my current published Academic Plan for Intelligence Studies (BA), I have a total of 134 college credits: 50 of which are labelled "Excessive Credits", 48 General Electives, and 36 of 69 completed with a 3.67 GPA within the Intelligence Studies program. At nearly $1,000 per course, I will run out of Post 911 GI Bill before I run out of classes. This is extremely unfortunate, as I was planning to pass my Education Benefits to my daughters.

RAMONA D  on 12/7/2020 6:27:40 PM

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.
