I'm applying to this scholarship to help me pay for my college expensive because of it hard for me to get scholarships because of my current situation.

I am applying for this scholarship because I work part time and pay my own college expenses. I live with my parents so they help cover other costs like my car insurance, etc. Working part time and paying or college is difficult. I am only able to take 2-3 classes a semester because I don't have the financial means to pay for more. This scholarship would help greatly!

I wish the University of West Florida was one of the schools listed above! But, FAMU is mentioned, which is awesome, because I'm considering applying for that school! :) I'm considering applying for this scholarship too!

This is perfect. I've been planning to go to college at Florida A & M University or Florida State. (:

by Susan Dutca-Lovell
