Reviews for Central Scholarship

Rating: 5 stars  

Central Scholarship is a great organization that helps students young and old reach their educational goals! It really helps make it all possible for many people! Interest can add so much to repayment plans and an interest-free loan is such a special gift for any student who needs to take out loans to pay for school.

I am extremely grateful for CSB's help with my undergrad education. I graduated almost 3 years ago and I still remember my interview with them my senior year of high school. Everyone was welcoming and nice. I was really appreciative of their reward that was a great help to me during my 4 years in school. It really made a difference. Thank you CSB!

Central Scholarship not only provides scholarships for school but they educate and distribute essential information for navigating the web of education financing opportunities. They have been instrumental in my success at patching together funding for my second degree.

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.

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!
