Here are two testimonials received about the scholarships for FCC that were offered to two caregivers in year 2015. We are very proud of them and what they have accomplished!
The purpose of this letter is to express my gratitude for your generous financial assistance during my Fall semester at Frederick Community college. The Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership scholarship will benefit me greatly by helping me hire a tutor for my math class, and takes some of the burden off my shoulders financially. I will be able to focus more on school and work less hours this semester because of this contribution. I appreciate the needs of parents with children who have incarcerated parents, being recognized by your foundation, as young women like myself are often forgotten about and left to struggle without our children's father doing their part. I hope to complete my education and show my child that adversity does not create failure, and that she can look at me as an inspiration.
Thank you for your time, consideration and charity.
I was very pleased and appreciative to learn that I was a recipient of your scholarship. I am writing you to deeply thank you for your generous gift.
I am currently a nursing student at Frederick Community College. My career plans are to obtain my associates degree from FCC and eventually my Bachelors in Nursing. I currently dedicate some time at Frederick Memorial Hospital as a patient care companion. I plan on seeking a nursing job upon graduation.
Also, I believe the COIPP scholarship has impacted my life tremendously and is changing my world by lightening my financial burden which allows me to focus on achieving my educational goals. Your immense generosity has inspired me especially on the importance of giving back. I hope to one day help other students achieve their educational and career goals just as you have helped me.
