Who I am ? I Am a single mother of two beautiful young ladies one that is currently 4 years old and another that is 3 months old. I am a CNA at a hospital here in my home town and for awhile I have put off furthering my education due to trying to be a mother and also a provider. I have decided that its is now time to return to school and follow my dream my biggest fear is failing but if I keep putting it off I will never return. I currently will start school In the spring of 2019 for my LPN and need some help with my books,scrubs and a laptop so that I can continue being that provider that my girls need.

To whomever this may concern, I am a single mother (recently divorced) of three young boys. I work full-time and would like to attend an online university for a degree in Criminal Justice. I would like to focus on helping others and changing the world. I am trying to ease the financial burden as I do not have extra money to help in obtaining my degree and I would like to prevent using all student loans to pay for my schooling. If you could please consider me as an applicant it would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Korey V  on 12/3/2018 11:24:48 AM

Please consider us for this Scholarship. Thank you for offering this scholarship. Korey

I am a current high school senior. I come from a low income community and will require financial aid to go to college next fall. I hope to major in Political Science with a certificate in Sociology. This scholarship would be the first step to ensure my goals. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Carsen A  on 11/2/2018 8:15:57 AM

I applied for the scholarship because I need the money in order to go to my dream school, Troy University. I live in a small town named Jay and I’ve lived there majority of my life. Jay is not the place for me, my graduating class is 68 people. And every single one of those people have no motivation or desire to leave. But not me. I want something so much bigger than what jay has to offer. I want to go out and meet new people, explore what the world consists of. So please help me fulfill my dream. Thank you.

Natalie S  on 10/28/2018 9:50:15 AM

I'm a sophmore in high school and I'm looking for scholorships early in the game so that when its really time for me to start college I won't have to be as stressed out about the money. I come from a family that lives pay check to pay check and I don't want them to then have to worry about paying for my college when the time comes because that would just add more stress onto them. I want to do everything I can to make sure that I can go to the college I want without having to have my parents pay. This scholarship will help me so much and I have so many high set goals for myself and this will help me reach them.

Sarah N  on 10/22/2018 9:07:05 AM

Although I haven't received this scholarship, I have received others and the biggest advice I can give is to never give up. I read through some of the comments and it's touching and humbling to hear about your struggles. Another piece of advice would be to do your research and talk to your college advisors or high school counselors about scholarships. There are scholarships for any and everything, but you have to be the one to look for them. Also, even if you apply for 100+, don't expect to get more than 2, if that. It's a hard world out there. There are people just like you working hard to get financial aid, and there's only so much money corporations are willing to give, but that's where your hard work shows!! Good luck!

Kiara F  on 10/15/2018 7:29:14 PM

I am in my second to the last year of finishing and I am short of funds. I am a single mother trying to make away and anything will help me finish what I have started

Shi'Keria B  on 10/9/2018 8:06:31 PM

I am in my senior year of high school. I stayed with my grandparents majority of my years in school because my mother is a single mother who was barely fit to take care of herself. Growing up living with my grandparents and my cousins was hard financially. I really hope I am able to get a scholarship because I don't want them struggling trying to get me through college, and provide for the other children. If I do attend college I will be the first in my immediate family to attend and I'm sure that will make me deceased grandfather proud.

LaDonnya S  on 10/9/2018 5:21:22 PM

I am currently enrolled part- time and working full- time as Substance Abuse Counselor. I have been in the social service field for many years. I am working towards by LPC but at this time I can only pay for 6 hours. I have maxed out my student aid so since I am going back for a second masters I would have to take out a loan. I have invested so much time in education but it seems that I need more and more credentials to have steady employment. I love this field but student loans are eating me up.

Xaria D  on 10/6/2018 10:31:19 AM

Hi there, I am currently a junior in high school. I come from a very supportive family who are diverse. I am mixed race I am half white and hale black. I applied for this scholarship because as much as my family can support me they aren't not financially sable right now to help me even pay for college once I leave the nest. With this 1,000 scholarship I wouldn't have to worry as much for my book and etc. This scholarship would help me a lot in many ways. I'm not sure how much financial Aid I would get in college yet and that makes me worry and when I start to apply for scholarships.

Helen N  on 9/28/2018 7:57:50 PM

I am a Senior in high school and I applied for this Scholarship because I can't afford the costs that come with college. I have a fairly large family at 6 people and we barely make enough money to go grocery shopping as often as we should to keep food on the table. I wish to study business administration and run my own restaurant or bakery, but I need a little push.

Sharon F 9/26/2018  on 9/26/2018 7:49:32 PM

Hello, I'm a nursing student and have to work a job outside of attending school. My mother is a total care patient which I'm responsible for as well, and a scholarship would help me tremendously with food and supplies needed while in school. My passion to become a nurse is long over due, and with your assistance it helps me walk another mile towards this goal. Thank You

Julia G  on 9/20/2018 9:48:05 PM

This scholarship will help me further my education in many things . I’m going to make it out of here and be successful . This scholarship would help me indefinitely.

Brukti S  on 9/19/2018 6:46:16 PM

I am an incoming freshman to Ohio state university. I applied to this scholarship for variety of reasons. One of the main reasons I want to mention is that, me and my parents moved to America 5 years ago, My parents don't have enough money to pay for my college. My parents are really stressed about the amount of money we have to pay. But winning this scholarship will help my parents and myself from stress.

I'm a senior in high school and i would love to graduate this year like i am suppose to. Nobody in my family thinks I can do it. They believe I am going to get bumped back to a junior. That would suck. I could use some extra help with college.

Angelique V  on 8/14/2018 10:53:45 PM

As growing up, I seen lots of violence in my coummunity. A lot of innocent people getting killed for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I know how it feels losing a loved one. Innocents like this drew me closer and closer wanting to sulsel my dreams becoming a Crime Scence Investigator. This scholarship would help to reach my goals I set for myself.

I am currently enrolled i my senior year of high school , I don't come from a well rounded family in fact i will be the first to attend college in my immediate family. Money for school has always been a challenge in the thought process and was wondering if their were any tips that i needed before beginning my first year in college.

Kerin C  on 7/30/2018 4:59:38 PM

I am an incoming freshman majoring in Operations Management. Growing up half of my adolescence with just a mother, life has always been a struggle for money. Being able to pay for necessities independently is so important to me to be able to build a future for myself and pursue potentially a masters/doctorate degree in order to be able to provide for myself in the long run.

Alexandra T  on 7/30/2018 10:27:49 AM

I am in DHR custody and I'm not sure whether my pell grant covers it all. Any answers?

Jo Ann M  on 6/18/2018 9:08:29 AM

My name is Aalyiah Butler and I am a rising senior at Tulane University. I am on a scholarship to attend this university and I do receive financial aid for my room and board but the prices will be raised this upcoming fall semester and I do not intend on taking out another loan. This scholarship would allow me to have money for books and groceries. Being awarded a scholarship would be an honor, honestly.

I am a 20 yr old, 2016, high school graduate, alone in the world, without my parents financial help, therefore I must work 50 plus hours a week to keep a roof over my head, and food on the table.. I live in a 27 ft, trailer I am still paying on monthly, that I am blessed to have. i have little time for school, but I enrolled in the Paul mitchell School in San antonio. I am super excited to get my career in cosmetology rolling, because the sooner I am able to finish school, the sooner I can start my own business, or work my way up to that.. I would greatly, and surely appreciate any help, or assistance that could be granted to me on my life's journey, YOU all, and hard work and determination from myself, will be the reason my journey will be a success. sincerely, Miranda Blue Hernandez.

I am grateful to even be considered for this wonderful scholarship.

I am a Senior in High School and I am struggling to even get accepted to a college. I am raised by a single parent which is my father. He goes to work early in the morning and comes home late in the evening and does extra hours on the weekend to support him and I. Getting a scholarship will not only help my family and I financially but it will be helping me take more steps to achieving my dream job.

Allison H.  on 2/27/2018 7:52:24 PM

I want to be a writer, and write about the taboos of sexual abuse in families. Unfortunately, I know too much first-hand. I was accepted into an MFA program, but could barely afford my undergrad, despite working full-time and living on my own. Now, the thought of graduate textbook costs, fees, etc., is daunting. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Jessica.S  on 2/26/2018 4:31:13 PM

I am a high school senior in a children's home. I will be the first in my family to go to college, and I am my brother and sister's role model and the only family they have to look up to. I would love the chance to receive this scholarship to make further positive steps in my life .

I AM CURRENTLY A MILITRAY WIFE STATIONED OVERSEAS I WOULD LIKE TO GET HELP WITH FUTHERING MY EDUCATION.

Shereen W  on 2/16/2018 12:45:49 AM

I am a junior in high school looking for ways to help further my educations without putting financial pressure on my parents. My parents work day and night, and ever since my mom's health has been deteriorating, she hasn't been able to rest properly due to my highly demanding extracurricular classes. I am highly-accomplished in art but pursuing that path is extremely expensive. I would appreciate the help I can get to help me pursue my passion and dream.

Aracely M  on 2/13/2018 7:25:39 PM

I am currently a junior in high school who is signing up for scholarships. It's been a struggle as a student who has crohn's disease for the past four years. My only dream is to attend college and make something out of my life. I have a father works day and night because my mother is a proud immigrant living in the U.S. Ever since i mentioned to them about college, we began investigating and college is sounding expensive and I need all the help in order to reach my one life goal

karra d  on 2/13/2018 1:56:16 PM

Is this scholarship just for Kansas occupants? Can I apply if I'm in Maryland?

Angie L  on 2/9/2018 3:44:56 PM

This scholarship would really help me out with my school expenses. I am in my second year of college for my associates in business administration. I have been a part time student, I am already in financial debt but I'm so close to the end that if I had some assistance with my school expenses maybe I can attend school full time and receive my degree sooner.

Georgia S  on 2/9/2018 2:11:03 PM

Who I am, is what I've built myself into. I am more than a number, I am Georgia. Growing up in the foster care system was never easy. I have survived through terrible situations and hostile environments. My main focus has always been to not only survive but survive with quality of life. I want more for my life and through seeking a higher education I am determined to fulfill my dream. I am an 18 year old female, who has just recently aged out of the foster care system. I manage to work two part time jobs and continue my high school education. I am completely on my own. I would absolutely appreciate the opportunity to gain a scholarship to help further my education.

Christie G  on 2/9/2018 12:26:20 PM

I would love to receive this scholarship because it could possibly help me purchase textbooks and pay exam fees. I would also appreciate this scholarship because when I start college and begin working part-time the money that I will be making from my job will go towards gas and bills. So this scholarship could potentially help me so much, and I believe that just out of the kindness of your heart that this scholarship worth one-thousand dollars could possibly be given to me.

jada w  on 2/8/2018 12:49:30 PM

I am a freshmen need financial help to pay for my books.

zoey k  on 1/25/2018 8:54:30 PM

I applied because I will need financial help for text books, exam fees, conferences, etc. I am from a low income household and any extra financial aid will help immensely. I am from a small rural town and will be going to college in a large city and am very excited for the new adventure, if only money was not such an issue.

Cassandra W  on 1/19/2018 1:53:47 PM

I am a junior in high school, and I need to start early. Early bird get's the worm. How do I apply for this scholarship, what is required to win?

Kimberly T  on 1/10/2018 6:30:53 PM

Ido plan to apply I need to organize review and submit the application I do need his very much

wilnet bonz j  on 12/18/2017 9:05:05 PM

I have applied for some these scholarships a couple of years ago that were 1 or 2 of these scolarships. Recently I think scholarships help some people reduce their educational loan amounts to pay after they finish their education. Scholarships help some people achieve their education and some scholarships give both men and women adult careers to provide for themselves.

Jennifer A  on 4/27/2017 10:41:20 PM

I enrolled into college as an nontraditional student. This has been the most challenging, but rewarding few months of my life. Unfortunately, the school I go to is the only school in my area that has an ultrasound program, and its at a private school. It is so expensive. I got federal aide, but not near enough to help, and I am extremely low income. The only way I could get a loan, was to get it through my school, and the day I started, I have already had to start paying on my student loans. I work a nanny job, and work through work study, and am still barely getting by. This would help me so much!
