Without the financial support provided by the CSI Foundation Scholarships, I fear that I wouldn't be attending college. While it is possible for me to self-fund my education, being able to focus on my academics, and not on earning minimum wages, has kept my grades in line with my goals. I have been a part of the CSI Honors Program, and have been enjoying it immensely.

First I would like to give you a whole hearted thank you. Your exceedingly generous scholarships have allowed me to continue my education and have lifted an immense financial burden from me. It is doubtful that I would even be in school right now, if it wasn't for the scholarships that I have received. I am really very grateful for the help. I am a music major here at CSI and when I have finished my degree I plan to go to the University of Oregon to study Intermedia Music Technology. Basically the cutting edge of new musical technology, which could be applied to helping others learn to play music through different interactive means, developing new computer based audio processors, and even music therapy that could be used to help and provide effective therapy to individuals with disorders like autism.

I am a freshman majoring in Criminal Justice, trying to follow my dream of becoming an FBI agent. In high school I did not care for school, my dad passed away in my sophomore year, my mom had to take over the family business, which left me to be the 'mom'. I have two brothers, and two sisters, one of which dropped out of high school to help provide for us. All three of us girls are currently in the honors program. I made a promise to my dad, in which assured him I would graduate high school. I graduated high school and now I am a college student in which this time, I promised myself I would graduate.
