Where would I be without central scholarship? As a nursing student and a mom, I dedicate all my time to school and parenting. Unfortunately that means I cant work because nursing school is gruelling. That also means I cannot afford to pay for tuition. Central Scholarship granted me a much needed scholarship that covered about 50% of my tuition. This was a tremendous relief. Those who have to pay full tuition out of pocket or with loans will attest to the headache and anxiety that can result from not having money by the deadline. I am very greatful for this opportunity to attain my academic goals stress-free. This has inspired me. I know that when I graduate, I will join the good work that central scholarship does to help less opportuned people like myself achieve their dreams.

Central Scholarship is by far one of the most beneficial programs for individuals such as myself. I come from a minority background and programs like this are fundamental to my success. I am a second year law student and would not know where I would be without such a caring and compassionate program and more so employees. This has helped me achieve a milestone in my life.

Central Scholarship is AMAZING!!!! I have taken out a loan and I have received a scholarship every year for college. I do not know what I would have done without their support.

CSB has been a gate opener on allowing me to pursue my dreams as a lawyer. The loan and scholarship I received makes me work that much harder to show the donors they did not waste their money and time on me. I must say this scholarship has impacted my life, and I would like to say thank you CSB!!!!!
