I would genuinely like to receive the offer of the George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation Scholarship. It will aid me in areas whereas financial, environmental and successful development in my life as needed. College is very important to me and I will work hard to get where I want to me.

I received the George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation scholarship in 1988. I would not have been able to get a degree without the scholarship. The Foundation makes dreams a reality.

Hi I am Alicia .L, and I wanted to apply towards this scholarships because of its financial benefits that one can gain from it when attending college such as for me in the Fall of 2021. I feel as though everyone deserves to earn this scholarship because one would not comment about it if they weren't in financial need, and for me I believe that I should earn the scholarship to help with not having to stress and let the finances of college set upon fear in my life and potentially be debt free. Lastly most importantly to not stress my family and more or less when it comes with money and being a poorer middle class student, much more can be said but make the right decision and everyone always deserves the best,

I am applying for this scholarship to help myself successfully finish college without having to worry about student loan and debt but instead help my family financially. I have been working very hard in school and will continue to do so until I reach my goal.

I would love to receive this scholarship to help me increase my knowledge so I can make a difference in the world. My mother, a single mom raised me and works hard to provide for me and I would love the opportunity to help take some of the pressure off of her.

I am applying for this scholarship because the school I got accepted to is expensive and I'm not like the others kids there that have the money to afford everything

I am a 9th grade student who is very hardworking and has 4 A's and 3 B's in all off my 7 classes. I am always striving to be the best in my class, always putting in the extra effort. This scholarship would really help get into the college of my dreams (University of Texas). Thank you for the opportunity!

The thought about college tuition is very stressful and I have been working hard and saving now to cover some expenses when I get into college. This scholarship will go a long way and I am praying to be considered.

Due to covid-19 my parents business had closed down and they used the saved up college funds to help out the business and due to that I'm really asking for help

Jesus M.  on 9/1/2020 9:41:30 PM

I, mother of Jesus M., am wanting to apply for the scholarship for him. His dream is to become a chiropractor. He has started this journey by being enrolled in a dual program. His biggest worry is that we his parents will not be able to pay for his college, so he worked the summer of 2020 in the heat building fences to save money for college.Please help me give my son a little relief finacially, so he can become a chiropractor.

I am applying for this scholarship because my goal is to play college volleyball and the school I am interested in can not offer athletic scholarships it only offers academic ones. I do not have the grades to receive academic money and my family does not have the money to send me to school.

KJ  on 2/19/2020 9:08:32 AM

I applied for this scholarship because college is approaching and it is also very expensive. So I’ve been trying to figure out how could I get into college with little to no money, and presume my dream of being a nurse.

Moses Otieno  on 2/9/2020 12:51:47 PM

I applied for this scholarship mainly because as college is coming up soon my main concern is how I will pay for college. College is very expensive and I'm hoping I can get a scholarship that can help pay my undergrad at least a good amount so that when I apply to dental school I won't have to worry about coming out with too much debt.

My sister won this scholarship. Well worth the effort.
