I applied for this scholarship because as a first generation student of a low-income family, I would like to be able to go through college without stressing my parents out due to any financial obstacles that may appear. I know that they have a little money saved up for my education but I believe that they should save it more for their health as they get older. This scholarship would help my parents out a lot.

I am grateful for the opportunity to apply for these scholarships. The tuition, room, board and other fees associated with college are a bit overwhelming to say the least. My family and I would be extremely grateful for any help we can get to help pay some of these expenses. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

apparently since one of the requirement is to be a citizen of the United states, which i am not, so it means that i cannot apply for it.
