“As a single mother, I do go through financial constraints with this scholarship I was able to afford my textbooks and I also see this scholarship as a reward for my excellent performance in my academic work. Thank you so much for this funding."—Cutie Roberts – Nursing Student

“Being a first generation college student, I am determined to obtain my degree. This scholarship is very important to me because the cost of attending college is entirely up to myself. I work between 35-50 hours a week while attending NCTC in order to pay for my classes and this scholarship helps me immensely by allowing me to take more classes and work toward my goal."—Rachel Maddalena - Engineering Technology
