Where should we turn in the essay?

I didn't apply because of the fact that I have an outstanding tuition balance at a university that I need to handle so I can resume attending school full time and be eligible for scholarships.

Studies never end, and knowledge opens doors. As an adult I would like to take advantage on opportunities that kind people like you offer to poor students who are always willing to pursue education. The healthcare system is necessary as long as this world exists. I decide to continue the same path I followed 20 years ago working as a nurse in Chad/Africa. The transfer of credentials from a French speaking country seemed complicated therefore I decided to request the scholarships to go to school in order to get a U.S. nursing license. I came to U.S. at age 44 years. The African mentality hardly allowed me to continue studies. Contrary, here there is no limitation of age to go to school. I tried the general studies while working full time to take care of my 5 kids and my wife. This has been a good idea, but it was not worthy because there was less advantage if I stopped only at that level. As I discovered opportunities to get scholarships and pursue my professional training I decided to apply for the ones you have offered to go to nursing school. I was a nurse in Chad/Africa for 20 years after my 3 years training. Chad being a French speaking country, I took all my courses in French therefore taking the same courses in English will help me to be familiar with the U.S. healthcare system. If I am eligible please offer me these scholarships which will help to fulfill my professional goals. I have appreciated your willingness to offer these scholarships to students like me.

I've been searching for months and have not had a fruitful scholarships that I even qualify for. How can you make it easier for someone to find a few that are well matched. My state or city shouldn't disqualify someone, my choice of undergraduate degree never comes up for scholarships. I'm a cancer survivor of two different forms at the same time. Then I was a LVN II as a single parent before. My second attempt to become a pillar of my community, I have lack of financial means and or funding, due to my unfortunate spout with family induced financial hardship. I am bipolar and fairly intelligent, plus fifty years old. I want to provide Alternative Medicine for the poor and disabled. I can give a great business plan for just about anything. I want to stop being pushed aside and not given a chance to enhance peoples lives and pay it forward each time I help someone. I need some assistance finding these resources to help my dream come true and prevent me from failing, due to judgement towards people like me!

Avoid Student Debt at Colleges with No Student Loans

February 25, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Here at Scholarships.com, we connect students with scholarships that can help alleviate the amount of student loans they need to take out to pay for college. But there are colleges out there that offer students such generous financial aid packages that they need to take out very little in loans if at all. These “no student loans” colleges replace student loans in financial aid packages with additional scholarships and grants to help fund a student’s tuition. Students accepted into these schools will pay much less than the cost of tuition and thus will not be as burdened with student debt. [...]
