Central scholarship gave me the opportunity to go to college. When I found out that I had received one of their scholarships, I was overcome with joy. They were able to see who I was, and that's what makes Central Scholarship one of the best there is. I'm so glad to have found out about this foundation.

Central Scholarship Bureau is a blessing to so many. I have learned this first hand by being the recipient of a very generous scholarship from CSB. CSB helped me beat the odds of falling prey to the negatives of inner city Baltimore, by providing financial support for me to explore the realms of academics in college. I can credit my recent admission into Towson University's nursing program to the folks at CSB. Central Scholarship Bureau recognized potential in me but also gave me a standard to strive for academically, sending me on a trajectory towards success.

I was most grateful for the support that Central Scholarship offered me in support of my further education. The organization has a wonderful mission and a great history. Everyone with whom I have been in contact there has been exceptionally friendly and supportive.

Central Scholarship has helped me fund my graduate education through private scholarships and interest free loans. Without CSB, I would not have been able to fund my final year of school without going into debt. They have made a huge difference in my life and education because now, instead of working part time and dedicating less time to my studies, I can devote the time that is needed without worrying how I will be able to afford my next tuition bill. Additionally, the staff at CSB is amazing. they make themselves so accommodating and have been very helpful to me. Finally, CSB's College Cash seminars are such a wonderful free resource-they provide education, scholarship opportunities and resources in one evening. I owe CSB much gratitude for all that they do!

Affording graduate school is daunting and there are few good financial aid options available. Central Scholarship Bureau provided a valuable resource to apply for scholarships and interest free loans at the graduate level. Additionally, they provided other helpful events to educate, provide guidance, and support students in their journey through paying for their education. They were extremely thoughtful, sensitive, and caring in all my correspondences with them. Their work is so crucial and the help is so needed.

I won the college cash scholarship they offered and it was extremely helpful in aiding my studies at University of Maryland. I am extremely grateful for their time and commitment and their customer service was so fast and friendly. Even though they have a lot of people to manage, they were still so good at getting to everyone's questions and needs. Thank you Central Scholarship! I cannot Thank you enough!

Central Scholarship supported me during undergraduate education at John Hopkins and is currently funding a significant portion of my doctoral education in Nurse Anesthesia. The funding from Central Scholarship was/is beyond generous, but the "college cash" events are phenomenal. It was during a college cash event that I learned invaluable tips for school selection, as well as discovered sources of other outside funding. Central Scholarship as an organization and it's indefatigable staff members, is amazing!!!

I am currently a Doctor of Nursing Practice in Nurse Anesthesia Student who was able to complete my Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, with significant support from Central Scholarship Bureau. Central Scholarship not only provided me with scholarship money, but in attending their seminar(s), I was able to get the much needed information on other funding sources as well as learn the factors to consider when making college choices. I needed to choose 1 out of 4 graduate programs for Nurse Anesthesia, and the information I learned through CSB, played a pivotal role in my decision to enroll at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Central Scholarship Bureau outrightly rocks!!!

Central scholarship has truly gone far and beyond what was necessary to help me with my financial burden. They have provided me with guidance throughout the financial process. It is not simply about solving an issue and then ceasing communication. Rather, I remain in contact with them constantly because of the family atmosphere in the office.

I cannot thank Central Scholarship enough for extending me for the second year an award to assist me with college. The gift really helped reduced some of my college expenses.
