"I am very shocked that I've finally won my first scholarship. I plan on putting the scholarship towards the interest I've accumulated on my loans."
"Part of my morning routine is to check my email for any updates on my academics and personal life. Unlike most days, I was delighted to read my email and saw that I won Access’s $1,000 scholarship on June 1st. My first reaction was to share this news with my parents back in Haiti. I made an international phone call and assured them that I would finance part of my education as a transfer student and biochemistry major at the University of Rochester this upcoming fall. For that, thank you Access Scholarships!!
"When I was congratulated over a video call that I won this scholarship, I was ecstatic! I plan on using the scholarship money towards my tuition at graduate school. I am pursuing my M.S. in Communication Disorders at Emerson College to become a Speech-Language Pathologist. This scholarship will relieve some of the financial burden and I am extremely grateful! Thank you so much, Access Scholarships!"
"My initial reaction to opening the email about the scholarship was shocked. Many people applied and I am very grateful that I won!!
