Central Scholarship Bureau is a prime example of an organization that cares about education and helping our future leaders in ways that in many instances may not have seemed possible. In short, they are helping me make my dreams come true. I found CSB as a sophomore in college and was fortunate enough to be granted a scholarship and interest free loan to help alleviate the cost of my college expense. The next two years I was selected to be a Meyerhoff Maryland Scholar. The Meyerhoff Foundation Partnered with CSB to create a program that helped numerous middle class students that were struggling financially. I do not know how I would have made it through my undergraduate experience with out the help of CSB. Not only do they help financially, but all the staff truly care about their students well being and success. Everything is very personal and everyone knows who you are. I think this is so important. To put a name to a face and go that extra step. It is my goal to be on the other side of the fence with organization and to give back to the community and the future leaders of this country in the years to come. I am indebted to them for what they have done for me and I am truly thankful for all they continue to do to make things possible for students that would have otherwise thought a secondary education was an option.
