A scholarship can make a big difference in my education. The money from a scholarship helps by allowing me to be more selective in how I spend my free time. I'll be able to maximize the college experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities and internships. This scholarship is a blessing for me, number one. It means a lot because not only is it helping me with college and I'm very honored to be getting the award. My career goals are teaching psychology ; that is what I will be majoring in. With this scholarship and the need-based grants I have been awarded, I can complete my education and continue to solve problems within my community. These are the areas I plan to serve. I am grateful to be considered for this scholarship opportunity, and should I be selected, I will use it to advance my physiologist education. I appreciate your consideration, and I look forward to building a lasting relationship with your organization.
