Assistance League® of Huntington Beach Scholarships
“Immediately after my high school graduation, my Mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I was my Mother’s full-time caregiver for 2 years, taking her to clinics, doctors’ appointments and hospitals. After my Mom died, I went back to school to complete my prerequisites so I could enter nursing school. My Mother would have been proud. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and was the first in my family to receive a degree.”
“This past year along with Golden West College nursing classes, I co-enrolled at Cal State University Fullerton taking 2 nursing classes to get a head start on my Bachelor Science Nursing (BSN) degree.”
“Financially, putting school first has made my everyday living situation challenging. I worked full-time until I was laid off last year. Ever since then I’ve been working part-time, struggling to keep up with monthly expenses.”
“Words are insufficient. thank you for the scholarship and believing in me.”
