Free money. Easy application process. Less financial stress.

“I never thought I would be able to go to college, and neither did my family. When my parents learned that I was able to get my college fully paid for with grants and the help of the scholarship, it helped me be able to alleviate the burden of not being able to help my family get out of debt.”

– Joshua Quiroz, Diesel Equipment Technology
