Yes, I did apply for this scholarship because I could really use the money for books and boarding expenses. This is considering the fact my mom is putting two children through college by herself.

If my mom works for a hospital and part of her job is financial with regards to insurance and copays, would I qualify for this scholarship?

I could not apply because my mother is unemployed. Wouldn't it make more sense to give scholarships to the applicants whose parents do not work?

I'm going to apply for the scholarship. I've kept my grades up for the last 4 years and plan to do the same when I'm in college.
