Hello, I am a student- athlete and so grateful for the opportunity to apply for this scholarship. I am currently a senior (Class of 2020) and am very much looking forward to attending college and setting myself financially so that I can help others.

I would like to lead by example for my younger cousins and especially the youth in my community, which is 88% Hispanic.

Both my parents come from Mexico and they didn’t have the privilege to get their education. So I want to make a change and I want the opportunity to get the education to earn my degree. I have put so much effort into getting my education. I like to study and want the opportunity to earn my degree. This scholarship would mean so much to me to become a forensic Science.

Your response to my request will so much be appreciated Regards Nigel Makungwa

brenda v  on 1/18/2016 6:27:40 PM

The reason why i am applying for this scholarship is because i see the struggle my parents go through every single day just so my siblings and i can have everything and anything we need. Also my parents have always told me how important school is and even thought they didn't have the opportunity to attend college and get a career that doesn't mean i have an excuse. So getting this scholarship would mean so much to me so i can study and enter into the criminal justice field become a police/ detective.
