  1. Hello, my name is Narmene Bensaber, I do not know if you stated this above, however, I was wondering when will we receive the results of who won the scholarship for 2019?

  2. Hello, my name is Zachary Crump and I hear you provide financial aid to students to help them with the arrangements for college needs. Do you provide aid to students who are both very poor and have money but are not poor or is there a limit to to provide financial aid?

  3. Hi, My name is Lauryn and I’m 14 ( 15 on March 27th ) and a freshman in college. Am I eligible? And will you guys take the scholarship away if my grades go down? I have an IEP because I have depression (Su***de-related), anxiety and autism, but I struggle a lot and try my hardest in every way you could think of. I even go online and work on Math and English practice worksheets over winter and spring break ( even when I’m told not to ) I hope one day I can make a difference. So Am I eligible and would you take the scholarship away?

    1. Hello Lauryn,
      My name is Avery don’t believe that you aren’t eligible I’m a junior in High School. You are perfectly more than capable for trying to take part in this. My Uncle has Autism and their are plenty of people who can relate when it comes to depression. A word of advice is, don’t let your grades fall; because my Uncle had almost the same conditions and is doing far better than me. Doing what you can for school is great. These people are all for it mkay. Just make sure too maintain a 3.0 gpa(Grade Point Average).

    2. Hello Lauryn, I am Isaac. I just wanted to say that I am rather inspired by what you are accomplishing. Depression is hard, but having the resolve and willpower to push through and get stuff done anyway is perhaps the most valuable characteristic you can possess. Good luck. Praying.

  4. Dear Sir,

    This is Lynn Lynn Han, 27 years old lady, from Myanmar I am sending
    this email to apply for scholarship. I have been admitted to study
    Master of Science in Global Business Administration at Brooklyn
    College (City University of New York) – Fall 2018 semester. I am
    sending this email since I do not have strong financial background and
    I am really in need of
    scholarship so that I can continue my education at Brooklyn College. I
    do not want to lose this chance since I have been trying to reach this
    stage for 5 years by putting deep effort though I had many
    difficulties. Now, Brooklyn College is told me to come quickly to
    New York to catch Fall 2018 Intake. I am now stuck. Now, I have been
    moved to Spring 2019 Intake by Brooklyn College because of
    financial needs. You can directly contact
    to Brooklyn College to check if the information I described is right
    or not.

    Hope you can help me with this.

    I will be waiting for your reply.
