“The AWS cloud skills scholarship was immensely beneficial to my student success last semester. As a partially-disabled stroke survivor living below the poverty line and working part time jobs to pay my way through college, any extra financial help goes a long way towards keeping me focused on my grades instead of stressing over paying rent and putting food on the table while classes are in session. Thank you sincerely for the assistance, it was very much appreciated.”
Santa Monica College
“This scholarship significantly alleviated the financial burden of pursuing education. With the rising costs of tuition, books, and living expenses, it is challenging to afford higher education. This scholarship provided financial aid, allowing me to focus on my studies without worrying about the heavy financial strain. During this semester, I experienced a life [altering] chronic illness that has flipped my life upside down. With this scholarship I was able to pay off most of my outstanding medical bills. My credit definitely sends its thanks to the AWS scholarship.”
