A college education is important to me because . . .

I want to become someone who can help people in my community and around the world. Without a college education, doing what I want to do in life will not be possible. College education is also important to me because I believe that obtaining knowledge by taking a wide range of classes that are offered in college will help me grow as a person and broaden my horizon.

In addition to financial assistance, the Scholars Program provides me . . .

support and guidance. The Scholars Program will help me overcome any obstacles that I encounter throughout my time in school.

Having a Scholars Program Advisor helps me to . . .

be more involved in my school. My Advisor wants to help me succeed in life, and that motivates me to work hard in school and be engaged in school activities, clubs, and different programs. In addition, having an Advisor helps me maintain a positive attitude about academics because my Advisor checking in on me reminds me to always try my best even when I’m discouraged or unmotivated about a certain class.
