    “I didn’t realize how lucky I was to receive an interest free loan through Central Scholarship, until I graduated and started paying back my other loans. I have paid thousands just in interest, and it’s made paying off my student loan debt that much more daunting. Without Central Scholarship, I would be even more overwhelmed, and I am so thankful for their help.”

    “Central Scholarship is helping me make my dreams come true. I found Central Scholarship as a sophomore in college and was fortunate enough to be granted a scholarship and interest free loan to help alleviate the cost of my college expense. I do not know how I would have made it through my undergraduate experience without the help of Central Scholarship. Not only do they help financially, but all the staff truly care about their students’ well being and success. Everything is very personal and everyone knows who you are. I think this is so important — to put a name to a face and go that extra step. It is my goal to be on the other side of the fence with the organization and to give back to the community in the years to come. I am indebted to them for what they have done for me and I am truly thankful for all they continue to do to make things possible for students that would have otherwise thought a post-secondary education was not an option.”
