I have received multiple scholarships from Central Scholarship over the years and they have always been so great to me. They offer multiple financial aid opportunities and really make sure they help out a vast amount of students, like myself, that are in need and/or have shown great merit. With these scholarships, I have been able to focus on my studies and continue into graduate school where I am studying physical therapy. Someday I hope to help others with my skill sets and give back to the community the way Central Scholarship did with me.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes necessary, they provide so much vital information about finances and school that I would not even think to ask for!

I work full time and attend law school at night. Getting an interest free loan as a graduate student was wonderfully helpful. It is so difficult to find funding even as an outstanding student and I am very grateful for their program and their desire to give me a chance.
