I am currently a junior in high school who is signing up for scholarships. It's been a struggle as a student who has crohn's disease for the past four years. My only dream is to attend college and make something out of my life. I have a father works day and night because my mother is a proud immigrant living in the U.S. Ever since i mentioned to them about college, we began investigating and college is sounding expensive and I need all the help in order to reach my one life goal

Is this scholarship just for Kansas occupants? Can I apply if I'm in Maryland?

This scholarship would really help me out with my school expenses. I am in my second year of college for my associates in business administration. I have been a part time student, I am already in financial debt but I'm so close to the end that if I had some assistance with my school expenses maybe I can attend school full time and receive my degree sooner.

Who I am, is what I've built myself into. I am more than a number, I am Georgia. Growing up in the foster care system was never easy. I have survived through terrible situations and hostile environments. My main focus has always been to not only survive but survive with quality of life. I want more for my life and through seeking a higher education I am determined to fulfill my dream. I am an 18 year old female, who has just recently aged out of the foster care system. I manage to work two part time jobs and continue my high school education. I am completely on my own. I would absolutely appreciate the opportunity to gain a scholarship to help further my education.

I would love to receive this scholarship because it could possibly help me purchase textbooks and pay exam fees. I would also appreciate this scholarship because when I start college and begin working part-time the money that I will be making from my job will go towards gas and bills. So this scholarship could potentially help me so much, and I believe that just out of the kindness of your heart that this scholarship worth one-thousand dollars could possibly be given to me.

zoey k  on 1/25/2018 8:54:30 PM

I applied because I will need financial help for text books, exam fees, conferences, etc. I am from a low income household and any extra financial aid will help immensely. I am from a small rural town and will be going to college in a large city and am very excited for the new adventure, if only money was not such an issue.

I have applied for some these scholarships a couple of years ago that were 1 or 2 of these scolarships. Recently I think scholarships help some people reduce their educational loan amounts to pay after they finish their education. Scholarships help some people achieve their education and some scholarships give both men and women adult careers to provide for themselves.

I enrolled into college as an nontraditional student. This has been the most challenging, but rewarding few months of my life. Unfortunately, the school I go to is the only school in my area that has an ultrasound program, and its at a private school. It is so expensive. I got federal aide, but not near enough to help, and I am extremely low income. The only way I could get a loan, was to get it through my school, and the day I started, I have already had to start paying on my student loans. I work a nanny job, and work through work study, and am still barely getting by. This would help me so much!
