I connect to almost all of the criteria on this scholarship, but I live in Michigan and will attend a college as well. Is there any way for me to still be eligible for this scholarship even though I am from out of the area? Thank you for your consideration.

Not sure what happened in the description on this website, but for the actual scholarship you have to be a resident from New York or Connecticut, this doesn't include PA or NJ.

Thank you very much for consideration and the award. May the great Lord bless you all.
