Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.

I am pursuing my graduate degree in post-secondary counseling. I know how overwhelming the college process can be. From applying to the school, financial aid, and everything in between. I want to be able to assist students in making a smooth transition from high school to college and to perform at their highest ability. I want the students to feel like they are coming in to college with someone in their corner rooting for them. Having someone to talk to and assist them when they are away from home for the first time could make all the difference to them. This scholarship will help me immensely as I am working full time as well as completing graduate courses. Than k you for your consideration.
