“One of the greatest challenges in attending college has been the financial burden placed on my grandparents. My grandmother chose to stay home from work when we came to live with them, and my grandfather works for a non-profit homeless shelter, so his income is lower than many others.  My sister is also in college, so the burden on my grandparents is significant. The CCEF scholarship has greatly relieved that financial burden. I am not sure that I would be able to attend college without the help of the scholarship from CCEF. Thank you very much.”
