Sha’Mia – Ohio

The CCEF foundation helped me continue on to my sophomore year of my college career I am very thankful for this organization. 

Paris – Missouri

This scholarship would be a great help to me in a few different ways. I am currently in school and I am paying for it independently. My foster parents do not help financial for my school. Also, during the summers I work but it is only for about 3 and a half months so that makes it challenging to make all that I need. I am in my junior year and then after that one more year to follow and I will graduate. This is a big goal for me especially for the circumstances I was brought up in. I want to say thank you for this organization and how it helps others in similar situations. Thank you for your time and consideration. 

Tenaya – New York

My name is Tenaya and I have been blessed with a scholarship from the Creative Corrections Education Foundation. Growing up without my father has been the toughest thing to handle. As a child I always missed out on father-daughter activities because mine was incarcerated. Despite our growing relationship through phone calls and letters, I can’t help but wonder how my life would’ve been growing up if he was here throughout. I am currently pursuing my Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin, in hopes that I can help children like me cope with such difficulties and troubled youth like my father started out as. With this award, CCEF has given me the extra push that I need to achieve my goal.

Once I achieve it, I hope to give back to others just as CCEF has given to me. I am greatly appreciative of the Creative Corrections Education Foundation for believing in me despite my circumstances.


Jada – New York

As a recipient of the Creative Correction Education Foundation Scholarship, I’m guaranteed in year 2020 a bachelor’s degree in Nursing with a minor in Education. It is because of this scholarship some of my college tuition will not be a burden to my “single parent” functioning household while my father is imprisoned. I will continue to make my mother, father, family, friends and now the Creative Correction Education Scholarship Committee proud of me. Thank you, Creative Corrective Education Foundation for investing in my future.

Izayah – New York

Thank you for awarding me with the scholarship! The scholarship will help pay for my books and some of my tuition. It will also help take some pressure off my mother and myself while I am trying to pay for school. I am very thankful for this and will put it to great use.

Jasmine – Texas

My name is Jasmine and by the grace of GOD I have been blessed to receive a scholarship from Creative Corrections Education Foundation. Growing up was a struggle. I did not have a normal childhood. There were times that I did not have all the necessities I needed. My family was homeless and at times we didn’t know where our next meal was going to come from. Both my parents struggled with addiction. I witnessed domestic violence. All of these circumstances came with a price and as a result my grades fell. My mother was incarcerated when I was eight years old. From then on my grandparents took on the task of raising me. My father also helped too when he could. Through all the heartaches and struggles, I have learned many things, but the most important is that times of struggle too shall pass. I graduated with my Associates Degree from Tarrant County College and currently in my first semester of nursing school. Creative Corrections Education Foundation has shined a light and opened my eyes to a secondary passion. I am currently working with Texas Representatives to create a grant for students with incarcerated parents to achieve a post-secondary education, so that they too can have a chance at life and be successful.

Chris – Wisconsin

My name is Chris and I attend Bethany Lutheran College. I have received three scholarships from CCEF thus far and it has made a huge difference and has had an amazing impact on my college experience. Going to a private school and all, things can get pretty expensive, and you can find yourself on the borrowing end of the spectrum rather quickly. However, with the scholarship I have received from the Creative Corrections Education Foundation, I have been able to get the things I need to be successful while attending Bethany Lutheran College. I am truly grateful of the help I have received from the Creative Corrections Education Foundation. It has affected my college experience greatly!

Caleb – Texas

Education is a priority in our family and i’ve always planned to attend college but I just wasn’t sure how I would be able to afford it. My family has faced some financial challenges over the past few years and things are really tight. I’m so thankful my mom saw Mr. Pitzer on television one night. The Creative Corrections Education Foundation scholarship was a tremendous help in financing my college education. Honestly, without the scholarship, I would not have been able to attend Jarvis Christian College and pursue my education!

Anna – Alabama

“I am so excited and thankful to be attending Baylor University. My enrollment here would not have been possible without the kindness of many generous persons. In particular, I am grateful for the scholarship I received from the Creative Corrections Education Foundation. These funds are helping to provide for my tuition as I study and prepare to be a Student Minister. I have heard God’s call upon my life and have dedicated myself to a vocation of helping and guiding young people. Though I have only been in college for a few weeks, I have already encountered many rich experiences that are helping to shape me for a lifetime.”

Tyral – Texas

It’s a blessing and an honor to have received this award from Creative Corrections Education Foundation. It’s helped lift some weight off of me of wondering where and how I would find the financial help to get through school in the 2014-2015 year. I thank you all very much God is good all the time.
