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 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.
