I needed to apply for the scholarship so that I can pay for tuition. I am currently homeless, but living in a transitional housing facility and enrolled in school with a 4.0 GPA. It will relieve a lot of financial pressure.

I'm applying for this scholarship so that I can pay for my bed and room, books and the other necessities I need.

I am applying for this scholarship because I am a single Mom with two children. While I do receive financial aide there's a class I am required to take before I can even apply to the nursing program that financial aide will not cover. This scholarship will help me pay for that class so I can proceed with my schooling in a timely manner to be able to provide a better life for my kids. Thank You

I am applying for this scholarship because my family doesn't have enough money to put me through college without being in debt. I wouldn't like to put such a burden on my mom who adopted 9 kids including me. I just want the best education without getting too deep in debt.

I am applying for this scholarship because I will be a student athlete and won't be able to work a job while attending school. I could use the money to help pay for college so I will not have such a large student debt when I graduate. Thank you!

EXCITED about this scholarship! I have several African Americans I respect and admire and have given me inspiration that come to mind immediately but I realize I am going to have to narrow to just one. My dad just signed me up to bank with Regions here in TN and they are the nicest people I have ever met. Looking forward to writing an essay for you! Jessica Herrell
