The Importance of
Post-secondary education is a valuable asset. It leads to higher paying jobs that can transform socioeconomic statuses for generations. Unfortunately, the cost of post-secondary education continues to rise, making it unattainable for many citizens. Those who can afford it often rely on multiple sources of assistance- most of which are loans with high interest rates. While students struggle to make payment deadlines and navigate late fees, their post-secondary experience suffers, becoming a secondary focus throughout the duration of their degree/ certification. Upon graduation, while they struggle to navigate the workforce, they are also faced with combating debt and the various other issues related to it.
Scholarships provide individuals with an opportunity to earn a quality education, without the hassle and distractions of loans. Often rewarding academic or other achievements, scholarships have become a staple to thousands of students pursuing post-secondary education.
What Are You Waiting For?
Completing post-secondary education is no walk in the park. But with a scholarship, you can ease the stress of funding your studies and focus on what truly matters: learning, exploring, and building your identity. If you meet the Cindy Couyoumjian Scholarship requirements, we welcome you to apply.
