I received a piece of mail from my school and thought, hmmm what could this be? Opened it up discovered I had been awarded a $1000 scholarship for the Spring semester! It was awarded based upon my academic acheivement since returning to school in January and was awarded directly by the Foundation of my Nursing school.
I am so thrilled!! I am a returning student with a prior degree and I have never been awarded a scholarship before. It is sooo nice to see my hard effort rewarded. This scholarship will pay almost 60% of my spring tuition and is a very welcome surprise!
Now I have an even higher motivation to work harder than ever to keep my scholarship for each semester!
Just wanted to share!
