A college education is important to me because . . .
as a foreigner from a poverty-stricken country, a college education is the only way to change your family’s circumstances and possibly your country’s circumstances. It is an important reason why I came to America. A college education opens doors that are usually shut to those without one.
In addition to financial assistance, the Scholars Program provides me . . .
a mentor and a counselor. Many of the issues I have encountered so far in college have been ameliorated by talking to my Advisor.
Having a Scholars Program Advisor helps me to . . .
remember that someone is looking out for me and it keeps me on track to succeed in my studies.
