These students who believe in the importance of college is should be rewarded by more scholarship opportunities.
"This category is important to me because I am a the first in my family to attend college and I think that there should be more scholarships available to all first generation college students out there."
"Many students today, or at least around where I live, don't care about their education because their parents don't, or can't, do anything to help them through school. Which leads to more students dropping out of high school, or finishing high school and never going to college. The students in this situation who believe in the importance of college is should be rewarded by more scholarship opportunities."
