Helloo, I am applying for this scholarship becasue I do want to be involved in the criminal justice field, to be more specific, a criminal investigator. So I figured why not fill out some scholarships correlating to what I plan on pursuing. With that being said, wanting to attend the BEST college for criminal justice, I know that I will need the financial support. In order to recieve that support, I understand that it is going to take commitment in filling out as many of these scholarships as I can possibly to get that chance of winning a few! I hope this helps to whomever is reading this!

My mother is a hard worker and has always provided for me and my sister. She always made sure we had what we needed and more. As a single mother, struggled and put things she wanted for herself aside for us. At one point in time we had to move back in to my grandma house because she started to get sick. We found out my grandma had esophageal cancer and was going to pass away soon. My mother then quit her job to take care of my grandma for many months until she died. After she passed away, we had to sell the house and move back to SE Washington, DC. In high school, College was not on my mind at the time even though I really wanted to go. I just didn’t know the reason why I wanted to go. I even started to play football for my High School just to try and at least get a offer from some school. In my senior year I thought to myself ‘this is the year I proved everybody wrong and get a offer’ but the worse came and I injured my knee. I thought football was the only way out because in class I was an average student barely getting above a 2.4 but once I got a 3.5 on my last report card and got accepted to the Virginia State University, I then found my purpose in life. My mother won’t always here to help. So I have to start doing things by myself and one of those things are to get scholarships to pay for college because I don’t want my mother paying all that money. I will go to college to pursue my dream of becoming an excellent police officer. I hope you will help me on this rough journey

I am accepting this as a life molding experience where I will soon see the accomplishments. In addition I am proud to state that I will be the first in my generation in receiving a title with the help of my parents and God who has allowed me to receive these blessing not only for my family and I but also my future generation.

I am applying for this scholarship to help me finance my education in Criminal Justice which will, hopefully, help me pursue my dream career in the Criminal Justice system. I have always wanted to pursue a career under this category and my mother the same. She has a bachelors in Criminal Justice and a Master's as well. After hearing all her stories from her career, it pushed me even further into my interest and fascination of being apart of this system. I already have potential opportunities both whilst in college and after and I am very excited to take this path. Like all college, students I am looking for financial support to help me pursue the life I want to create for myself.

Given the opportunity to obtain grants and scholarships would help me to finish my degree in criminology I am currently in the process of taking through AIMs and Front Range Community Colleges through my high school dual enrollment program. In doing so I could transfer my credits and enter as an officer and it would allow me room through my law enforcement or criminalistics career to promote later on as I saw fit. It would aid in my ability to take part in community measures with a better understanding through my classes and the individuals I could meet within the field I want to go in to with a base line knowledge of the system as it is.
