I was in my second semester of Paralegal classes when one of the faculty members encouraged me to apply for a DLACF Scholarship. I did, not really expecting to be selected. Whe I heard that I have been choosen as one of those to receive a scholarship, I was estatic, and could only say "Praise God!" Thank you DLACF!
Receiving this scholarship means a lot to me. I work hard to try and better myself. Once I finally figured out what I wanted to go to school for, I looked more into programs around my community that involved the type of work I will be attending school for. By doing this, it gave me certainty of knowing that Early Education was the field for me. Now we all know that college is not free, but you have to find a way to pay for school. That is where scholarships like this come into play. Scholarships are the essential thing to apply for when deciding where to go for school. You can only gain something from applying for a scholarship. So I encourage many students to apply for them. It just takes a little time, but it is totally worth it in the end. Scholarships can mean the world to students who are paying for college alone. Every little bit helps us, and I greatly appreciate this scholarship.
I am very happy to learn that I will be a recipient of the Detroit Lakes Area College Foundation's scholarship for Civil Engineering Technology students. I would like to thank all of you on the scholarship board for your generous financial support toward my college education.
Receiving a Detroit Lakes Area College Foundation scholarship means I am able to pay off some of my students loans and get a little closer to graduating with minimal debt. Being a single mother of three children, once I graduate I have to hit the ground running, so to speak. Your financial generosity will allow me to focus more on what's important to me, providing for my family and my education. I hope to someday be able to give back to other students in the same way you are helping me.
