Yes, I applied for this scholarship because I need help paying for college. I only have one income in my house, as my parents are divorced.

I participated in DYW at the regional level in 2019, and it was absolutely one of the best experiences in my life. My chapter (York County, Pennsylvania) is known for giving out the most money of any regional chapter, which is a nice perk - but beyond that, I became friends with so many amazing girls in my area and I learned many skills that I will carry with me through my professional life. Overall, I won two categorical scholarships and was second runner-up overall, and I won $5500. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this program to anyone and everyone!!
