    As it is ‘education is the key to sucess’ i for one seek scholarship to get educated because i barely can afford to pay. Both my parents retired when i was in my 8th grade. My dream is to see to it that i also take care of my parents and that can only happen if i get the best education. Your consideration will be highly appreciated
