Words cannot express enough for the generous scholarship award I was blessed to receive from the amazing people who work at the 3to1 Foundation. Coming from a family of hardworking parents, entities like FAFSA and the financial aid sections of colleges I applied to and attend did not fully support or recognize our entire need. With my father being on disability and the lack of income, this really helps.
It definitely has been hard financially the first year of college. Being a student includes several expenses such as books, supplies, and personal items like groceries, and the addition of all expenses can be quite high with the need of these items being prominent. Receiving this scholarship will be such a great help to continue to succeed in school with the right tools and overcome the financial challenge given to us.
My family and I all cried hearing word that I was chosen to receive this scholarship. Thanks to you, all our hard work has paid off.
