I was asked to write this letter to the College of Southern Idaho foundation and I am very grateful for the opportunity. The CSI Foundation has been funding my education for the last two years, and without them, I would not be where I am; graduating in the spring with my Mathematics Education Degree. Because of the foundation, I knew that someone cared that I was going to college and that someone believed in me.
I was a junior in high school when I took a field trip to the CSI campus and fell in love with it. It was at that moment that I decided I wanted to attend the College of Southern Idaho. I started to research CSI and found that tuition would be more expensive that I anticipated. As an out of state resident, the Foundation Scholarships that I received made the difference in my ability to become a CSI student. These scholarships allowed me to attend the school that I desired to go to, rather than attending the community college located in my hometown.
I am so thankful for receiving the Foundation Scholarship. It benefited me greatly by relieving some of the stress about funding my education. I like to get really involved in school from the start of the semester, whether it is taking school courses, joining clubs, or attending school events. I get so busy when the semester starts that it makes it difficult to have a job. Typically I work over the summers to save up money for the semester ahead. Unfortunately this summer I was enrolled in two summer classes which had an impact on how much I was able to work.
