Greetings. I am applying for this scholarship because I am working on my masters in Social Work and I am 49 years of age and seeking to have some accommodations with the economical part of my education. I am a teacher at a well-known High School and really could use the help. They don't offer social work and mental health at the school and told me upon completion, they will create the position to work with the students, which are already familiar with me. I already get them to answer questions without them knowing the psychological path I am implementing, while in their presents. Nonetheless, the cost of living is excruciating and in order to improve my income, I am seeking to improve my education because time is definitely of an essence for my return at mid age.

I currently work with children and adolescents in Appalachia for mental health issues. I want to pursue my Masters in Child and Adolescent Psychology to assist me in screening and testing this patient population, in order to connect them with the help or services they need.

I applied for this scholarship to assist in funding my education to gain a Master's degree in Social Work. To emancipate others from their darkness and struggles only fans the flame for a brighter world. I need your help, to help others.

I am a Canadian resident, and I will be attending Niagara University in Lewiston New York. I have been accepted into the Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counceling program and will start this September. I am wondering if I would qualify to apply for this scholarship? I would appreciate it if someone would contact me at their convenience. Thank you so much.

I applied to this scholarship because I am working on my doctorate in psychology. I am a behavioral therapist working with children with autism. My financial is almost run out, so unless I figure something out soon, I will not be able to continue my degree program. I should be able to obtain my BCBA by the end of the year, resulting in a bump in pay, but there will be two school quarters in between where I have no idea how I will pay my tuition. I want to continue learning and be on the cutting edge of my field.

I applied for this scholarship to help aid in funding my Master's degree for Social Work. It is my God-given strength that I aid people in need. It is my passion to spread awareness about taking care of oneself and their mindset come what may.

I did not apply for this scholarship because I have not yet finished my undergraduate courses. I am looking for scholarships to help me complete my undergraduate studies so that I can obtain my educational goal of earning a Masters in Psychology. I want to specialize in counseling and addictions. I have found that I have a great passion for working with victims of sexual abuse/assault.

Ms. Sanita: My name is Gregg Ramsdell and a retired member from the US Army. For the past 31 years I have seen those around me and as I rose through the ranks, those who I have commanded. I am in need for a scholarship for the use in Psychology with a focus on PTSD. I am a 100 percent service connected disabled with multiple combat tours. I feel I can really assist the younger soldiers, law enforcement and other servants in understanding this affliction and be able to live like normal. I am retired from the military and wanting to advance my studies. Ma'am, I am inquiring about the scholarship and feel I can be a valuable asset to our young hero's. Thank you for your consideration. Gregg Ramsdell, US Army Ret'd
