My name is Edwidge Fleury. I am thirty-five years old and have two children. My daughter is 12 years old and my son is 10 years old. I am attending Palm Beach State College, and majoring in nursing.
I am face with many hardships and financial burdens. I have lost my job on June 12, 2014 and I have been unable to find a job. Having to put food on the table and trying to keep a roof over our heads has been nearly impossible, but I refuse to allow these obstacles to stop me from furthering my education. Returning back to school was one of the most important decisions that I made. My father always drilled into my head, “with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible.”
I am now a sophomore in college and have maintained an overall GPA of 3.52. After I graduate, I plan to continue my education and the BSN program at Palm Beach State College. Hopefully one day, my children will look back at all my obstacles, hardships, and struggles, and with proudness say, “my mommy made it.” I also hope they realize that there is no limitation to achieving one goal if one has perseverance and willing to work hard.
When I received the call from Scholarship4Mom, I was shock because I have never won anything before. I thought to myself another advertisement! I prayed, “Lord, as desperate as I am now, PLEASE let this be real!”
Receiving this scholarship will help me get one step closer toward my education. This scholarship will help me pay for my tuition, books, and resources needed to further my education. It will also help me to stay focus on my education and not so much on how am I going to my bills. Thank you very much for considering my application.

My name is Latricia Jenkins; I’m a 32 year old single mother that lives in Detroit Michigan with my two little boys, also I’m working full time at General Linen& Uniforms, Supplies. I am currently attending The University of Phoenix in Southfield for a Bachelor degree in Business Management. Most people have heard the saying ‘never say never’, well I am a witness to that saying .Four months ago my adviser told me that I could not receive financial Aid anymore but I’m able to take out loans for school and pay out of pocket. My heart start pounding and tears start coming down my eyes thinking I’m the middle of my degree and I've been working so hard to achieve my goals. So I got on my knees and prayed to God because I’m about to lose my education. A week later my adviser sends me websites to go on to apply for scholarships. I took out time in one day to apply for 20 scholarships, saying to myself I’ll never win these scholarships. So, I started looking for a part time job just for school and no one was hiring for part position, I’m thinking oh God I’m about to took on a lot of stressful things please help me. On May 19, I was very tired, I had just come home from work and the boys were all over me. I asked my sister she could watch them while I sleep for a few hours and just as I laid my head down I got a phone call from free scholarship. I was so mad at the time because I thought someone was playing on my phone until the woman on the other end started talking a little bit more about the scholarship. I was so in-denial still, I told my sister and she was happy. I got the email that the lady said I would get and I started to cry thinking God. At this time I will like to thank Free College Scholarships, LLC for giving me a wonderful opportunely to continue school. I plan to pay for school with this scholarship and give something to someone in need, my way of thanking God. I believe that anything happened by the grace of God. Also I am able to get my laptop fix, I've going to the library to use their computer. Thank you very much I am truly thankful.

Since I was young, I always dreamed of being in the military and helping people, but dreams are funny things. My junior year in high school I came down with a few health problems that prevented my joining. Upon learning this, I had to come up with a backup plan, and fast. So, as most people do, I decided further my education.Of course college costs more than most people can afford, so I started applying to get as many scholarships as possible. After being accepted to Florida Gulf Coast University I started worrying about how I can afford going to school. Thanks to Free College Scholarships I don’t have to worry about The first year of school and I can’t thank them enough. Because of their generous scholarship, I can rest easy knowing I can last another year without worry. All oh the money is going to tuition, and if there’s anything left will go to pay for the textbooks.
Jasmin De Jesus
Hometown: New York, NY
Drawing Date: March 15, 2014
My name is Jasmin De Jesus im 19 years old and I go to The Borough Of Manhattan Community College in Manhattan, NY. I am in my freshman year with a liberal arts major. I am so honored to have been chosen to receive this award. This will come in handy when it comes to purchasing my books and essentials for this oncoming semester.
First and foremost I would like to thank the Free College Scholarships, LLC for awarding me this scholarship. When I got the call I couldn't believe it I was in so much shock that wasn't excited at all. It's not everyday that you win 10k for school so when It happened I didn't know what to feel. I was just really thankful and grateful to have been picked.
I'm an only child of a single mother from uptown New York in Washington Heights. I have eight other siblings on my dad's side so college is a financial burden when it comes to my family. Financial Aid is never enough and my Dad has three kids going through college. My mom lives paycheck to paycheck paying these expensive New York City bills so money is always scarce. This scholarship money couldn't have come at a better time! Since I've just found a school that covers the major I really want which is radiology. Provided by Columbia University Medical Center a twenty four month program in Harlem Hospital for radiology. To pursue this degree I would have to pay a tuition of 15,000$, so this was definitely appreciated.
I can't even express how thankful I am. This was a gift from God. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to follow my dreams.
Balancing life, family, and your career can be overwhelming.
Give yourself the tools you need and go back to school and take control of your future.
