I applied for this scholarship because I need to make something of myself . Every additional application represents an opportunity to avoid student loans and help me graduate debt free. Plus, many scholarships can be used for expenses other than tuition. In fact, some are awarded in cash and can be used for anything from supplies to a new laptop to gas for their car.

It is tough for me to come to United state for study, i was only 16 years old with no English, but my mom see the future of mine in America.

Dora J  on 6/24/2018 2:45:35 PM

It could be really tough to come to a new country when you are only 15 years old. But I did it. I moved to the United States almost 2 years ago and i love it. Now I'm a Junior and about to graduate in 2019. At first i was scared and shy but later on I learned that there's nothing to be afraid of. I finished freshman year in Hungary and started sophomore year here, I was able to improve my english skills a lot and one of my biggest dreams is me going to college and to be successful in life. I want to show everyone that even though, life isn't the easiest at times but it's all worth it at the end of the day. Also, I want to prove myself that I am able to do whatever I want and to never give up. I applied for this scholarship because this would help me to be successful in life and to persue the education that I desire to get.

McKenzie B  on 1/1/2018 3:04:34 PM
