My name is Anastasia Stigall and I'm 30 years old. I was born and rasied in Memphis, TN. After being absence I'm from a university for five years, I decided it was time to return and presue my degree in Athletic Training at Middle Tennessee State University. Initally, I planned to work upon my arrival; unfortunately, the Athletic Training program is very demanding and time consuming that no job would work with my course ans practice schedule. I've taken loans to try and cover my courses, books and etc.; however; it is a struggle day to day for food and basic necessities. Thus, I'm definitely in need financially. Thank you for this opportunity to apply for this scholarship.

I would love to apply for this scholarship but I can't seem to find it anywhere and the deadline is around the corner. I am a divorced single mother making less then $17k a year and I am currently in a trade school for CADD. It is a field that not many women are currently in. As of right now I am getting straight A's and would hate to give it up because of financial hardship. I am just trying to make a better life for my kids and I.

I am a widowed woman over the age of 50. I resigned my job to relocate and help my mother after my father passed in 2014. I have discovered that in order to acquire employment and be successful I need to complete the degree I started in 1976.
