“I am deeply grateful for the financial assistance you were able to provide me this year. At the start of each new semester, I have previously found myself in lots of anxiety figuring out how I was going to pay for books, tuition, rent, and food. Usually, I am making just enough to get by and carry me through each month. The scholarship was just enough for me at the right time in the Fall. And since I will be temporarily let go from my current job this month, this money will do a lot to help carry me over this Spring until I find another job. Thank you very much again for the care. I sincerely appreciate everyone involved in this scholarship process!”
