I would like to thank central scholarship for its grant to study Advanced HVAC certificate. They have been warm, friendly and interactive with all queries that I had. I am grateful to the donors and all stuff members of the central scholarship for their demanding and lasting change they accorded to me.

Central Scholarship has been wonderful. They granted me a no-interest loan when I decided to go back to school to become a nurse, which has been a fulfilling (but debt-filled!) career move. My repayment schedule is generous, and the organization is always responsive to my questions. THANK YOU!

I went to central scholarship two years ago to get my C.D.L. license. Until that point i struggled tremendously to provide for my family. I am an ex-offender and couldnt not maintain gainful employment. To keep it short,central scholarship drastically changed my life for the better. Ms. Angela Harrison was awesome. Truly a godsend. She helped me through the entire process. Always smiling and gracious. I truly dont know how myblife would be right now if not for central scholarship. I wanna thank you all again for myself and my family. You changed my life. Saved me from myself. THANK YOU.

Central Scholarship helped me stay in school through their financial assistance. Everyone I came into contact with was very nice. They made me feel like their partner, not a needy student. I am tremendously grateful to them.

I would like to thank the Central Scholarship Bureau for the tremendous financial assistance they have provided me with! I am committed to teaching in urban schools, and I wanted to attend graduate school to strengthen my practices for the benefit of my students. Prior to accepting the offer into Johns Hopkins, I was nervous that the cost of attending the University would be impossible to cover. The Central Scholarship Bureau has significantly alleviated the financial burden of attending graduate school. Their assistance has helped me to channel my focus solely on my learning and development in the program, without the distraction of financial stress. Thank you, thank you, thank you Central Scholarship Bureau! You have not only demonstrated your commitment to me, but moreover, to every student I encounter!

I would like to thank central scholarship and their fantastic staff. The central scholarship grant allowed me to get my CDL A license. I'm now moving up at my job and earning a decent living wage, which allows me to help others. None of this would have been possible without central scholarship.

Thank you,
Sean Mallory

I was able to have the opportunity of having a scholarship through Central Scholarship. I attended the event held in Baltimore and it was great networking with other students who are all trying to take the next steps of achieving their goals! I felt so motivated and proud to be a part of this wonderful scholarship program! :)
