My name is Aaron Dobbs, and I would like to just briefly summarize what opportunities the scholarships that I have received from the Foundation have allowed me access to. Because of my awards, I am now able to attend CSI with the goal of achieving my Associates degree with virtually no debt. This will help facilitate my success here at CSI, and undoubtedly contribute to my success elsewhere, be it a 4-year university or the workplace. My plans for additional education include the attendance of a university, although I am unsure which one at this point.
By having the support of Foundation Scholarships, students are able to attend school and further their education without having to worry too much about the money. I personally wouldn't be able to attend college at all if I didn't have the support of scholarships. I would have to work a full time job and take out loans, causing me to worry too much about that stuff and not focusing on school. Without the options of scholarships, I would honestly question my choice in even attending college.
I am a first generation college student from a low income family; scholarships from the Foundation have allowed me to attend CSI and further my education. These scholarships have let me focus on school and prioritize my studies without having to get a fulltime job to cover my tuition, books, and other fees. While attending CSI, I have been able to discover the major I would like to study and eventually make my vocation.
