Are merit scholarships right for me?
My experiences in the Student Success Center led me to gain confidence in applying for funding. As a first generation college student, I didn’t know how to navigate finding money for school outside of FAFSA. I was encouraged to apply to specialized scholarships that related to what I was already doing and was successful in receiving the Mary Gates Research Scholarship. It took the weight off of my shoulders and allowed me to spend more time on my studies."
