I am currently in high school and I am trying to find a way to afford to go to college. I would like to study prelaw and chemistry. I applied for this scholarship in hopes that it will make my dream of attending a great university come true.

Lindsey M  on 2/29/2016 9:36:19 PM

My name is Lindsey and I will be attending the University of Alabama fall of 2016 as a freshman. It has been a life long dream of mine and now that the time is near I am seeing how all of my hard work and dedication is paying off. Although college is very expensive, I believe it is worth the investment. I am a hard worker and a critical thinker who will not stop until I have achieved what I set out to do. I care about people and my goal is to help and encourage as many people as I can while being a registered nurse. My ultimate goal is to become a Nurse Anesthetist. Please invest in me and into my future by awarding me the scholarship. Thank you, Lindsey

I plan to earn my bachelors in Nursing while at the same time, trying to be as free from college debt as possible. Best of luck to the other applicants and I suggest that anyone that is considering to apply for this scholarship should put those feelings into action and definitely apply for this scholarship.

Brent F  on 2/16/2016 11:27:19 PM

Hi my name is Brent Fisher, I am applying to this scholarship because I am in a very low income household and I need to be able to attend college. I have a very high GPA at 3.9 but I cannot afford to attend any more college. I also need to be able to pay for the essentials for school like books, paper, a computer, and other things that are needed in going to college. I really would like to make my future better through going to school but if I cannot afford it then I cannot go. I don't want to spend my entire life working for a gas station. I want to do something with my life. I want to make an impact on the world. I want to help people. I cannot do this if I am running off a minimum wage job and barely being able to scrape by. So I need to go to college and in order to do that I need this scholarship. Please please please accept my application.

nathalee m  on 2/16/2016 7:13:55 PM

Yolanda W  on 2/14/2016 9:09:15 AM

Hello, I am applying for this scholarship because my Twin daughters are very deserving students and they need funding for college. More importantly, they are excellent students with 3.9 GPA's who face stiff unusually tough competition for scholarships. They have peers that have GPA's greater than 4.5 who are winning most scholarships. My daughter are engaged in school and community service activities. They have been honor roll students all twelve years and are earning at least 4.0 GPA each semester in their senior year. They enrolled in a very competitive Science and Technology program focused on engineering and biology. They have passed many Advanced Placement (AP) courses and Community College courses. They have a great future ahead of them and this scholarship would be a needed "Thank you for your hard work" reward. Thank you for your consideration.

Litrice B  on 1/28/2016 11:21:24 AM

Hello! My name is Litrice! I applied for this scholarship in hopes to win... I decided to return to college to get a degree and finally pursue my ideal job in Human Resources. I have many regrets not continuing my education straight out of high school but it was financially rough and still is to this date. I see no change but time passing by with no accomplishment to show :( Lesson learned in this life. Now we have 7 children! Which is why I want to obtain a Bachelor's degree and be a role model to each of our children! Plus, NO ONE in my family even attended college, and only 3 of my entire family members graduated high school! So this is a huge step and motivator for me to accomplish this in my life! I resigned my job to go to school full time while my awesome and supportive husband works hard as an Active duty soldier to support my dreams! We could really use this scholarship! Good luck to everyone who applied!
