Due to COVID-19, almost 44% of students worry about their ability to enroll or stay enrolled in college. This astonishing statistic is due to the uncertainty that comes with campus closures, high levels of nationwide unemployment, and the unknown of when coronavirus will truly blow over and life will return to normalcy.

Our team at wanted to reach out and share our $1000 scholarship that is offered to online student applicants biannually. We believe that by sharing this resource with students that look to you for reliable information, we will be able to help alleviate some of the stress that future college students may be feeling about their future ability to attend university.
