Andrea G  on 5/2/2018 12:40:02 PM

Hi,my name is Andrea Gonzalez Vazquez and It is an honor even applying for this scholarship right now. I am a sophomore (will soon be a junior) in Houston, Texas and have always had a passion to help people and change the world. My parents have always taught me to be the first one to step up and to always work hard to make your dreams come true. They have done so much for me and I wish to show them that even at this age, I am a responsible, quick-thinking woman that they should not be worried about financially. I have always wanted to be a clinical psychologist and with this scholarship, it will bring me one step closer to showing judgmental people that I can achieve my goals in life, no matter my age,ethnicity,gender,etc. Even though there is a chance I won't get this scholarship, I would like to thank you giving Hispanic people like us to strive for a better future. Once again, thank you for reading this and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Hello, my name is Daniela Sofia Alfaro, I would love to apply for this scholarship because I'm vitally passionate about going to college. I will be one of the first in my family to go straight out of high school. I'm first generation Latina American and my relatives came to the United States in order to benefit their children in the future. However, now is the future and my family isn't in the financial situation in order to help me with college. I want to make my family and myself proud by going to college. I would love to get awarded this scholarship because I believe I'm a well rounded, kind, open-minded, and knowledgeable person. With this opportunity, I would love to give the favor back to those in need, hopefully in the future. My dream school is Virginia Commonwealth University and thankfully with all the hard work and dedication I got accepted to my dream school. The only problem is that I'm currently aren't able to afford it and due to my parents job their moving out of the country and aren't able to help me financially if I choose to go to community college. I plan on attending school at VCU to become a dentist, it's my dream every since I was little. If you more information about the scholarship please let me know. Best regards Daniela.

Thank you so much in best regards, Deana Alfaro

I would like to apply for this scholarship because I really want to achieve my dream which is to become a professional clinical psychology. Even though there's a lot of people applying, I would be grateful at least if you guys help me paying my books or a fifty-percent of my term. My father has no enough money to be able to pay my brother and me, neither my mom, who is seriously ill due to chronic arthritis. Your money won't be wasted because I devoted to my classes.

I would like to apply for this scholarship so I can obtain a college degree. My husband does not earn enough to pay for my college tuition. I have been desperately searching for a job but all of my applications have been turn down. Employers are looking for people with degrees and experience. I feel so helpless but I pray to god for a job and for a better future. My dream is to obtain a college degree that will allow me the opportunity for a career. A career that will help me, my husband, and my family.

I would love to find out how to apply for this in hopes of being able to win.

Miriam V  on 4/17/2016 2:33:55 PM

Hey, I want to apply for a scholarship is because it's a struggle for my parents to support me with my education. My family is big of seven so it’s hard. 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.

Nigel M  on 3/10/2016 11:30:01 AM

Dear Sir/Madam I would like to apply for scholarship,I was accepted in the Marketing program with Loyalist college in Canada but I can not afford the fees required as I am from an under privileged family in Zimbabwe.My parents are unemployed but I would like to pursue my education.I wonder how your organisation can assist in this regard. 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.

LUPITA R  on 1/5/2016 1:28:23 PM

THE REASON THAT I AM APPLYING FOR A SCHOLARSHIP IS THAT FACT THAT MY HUSBAND DOES MAKE THE MONEY BUT WITH THE COST OF LIVING, HE CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR THE REST OF MY TUITION. I WOULD LOVE TO FINISH MY NURSING PROGRAM AND HOPEFULLY KEEP GOING. MY MOTHER DIED 13YRS AGO AND I NEVER KNOW WHAT TO DO TO HELP HER, SHE IS THE REASON I WANT TO BECOME A NURSE, IS TO HELP OTHERS IN TIME OF NEED. I'D LOVE TO WORK WITH CANCER PATIENTS AND HELP THEM ( ESPECIALLY CHILDREN).
