our story is almost EXACTLY the same!
I'm a divorced, single mother of one. I exhausted my financial aid in my previous degrees ( 1 bachelors, 2 Masters in education) and am hoping to get this award to fund this degree.
I'll also be attending a private, not for profit Catholic university (hopefully) this Fall. I really NEED this scholarship to help pay my mortgage, car note, and household bills
I have taught for high school science for 10 years at inner city schools that are largely underserved, but I do not have much recent volunteer experience besides all of the additional (unpaid) hours that I give to my students via tutoring, club sponsorship, and after school activities... Not to mention I still have a preschooler!!
GPA (cum): 3.2
So, I'm hoping to be in that selected number!!!
