I just want to receive a good education and for a good education one must have good money. I want to obtain as many scholarships as possible, graduate debt-free.

I started working on this scholarship because I did not apply for any scholarships at the moment. So hopefully I get it.

I join Celia's prayer and also believe that our Father who is heaven will reveal Himself in a supernatural way to whoever receives this scholarship. They will know the living God and will know His unconditional love.

Celia  on 1/4/2020 12:14:45 PM

I pray blessings from God and an infilling of the Holy Spirit for anyone who receives this scholarship, that they will come to know the love and peace of their heavenly Father.
