A college education is important to me because . . .

it allows for me to grow as an individual. A college education is about not only learning the skills you need to prepare you for your career, but to learn about yourself and discover who you truly are as a person. A college education gives you an array of perspectives that help you through life.

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

with an individual I know I can talk to and count on to help me when I am struggling with certain situations in my life. It provides me with another person I know I can turn to and they will help me in any way they can. It is always good to have another person that can guide you through life.

Having a Scholars Program Advisor helps me to . . .

cope psychologically. Knowing that I have someone that will be there for me when I need them is a huge benefit of having an Advisor. Knowing that someone else cares and only thinks of my well-being is one of the most helpful things.
