‚Äč”With help from the Anchor Scholarship, I was able to tackle my very first year of college with confidence in my abilities and accomplishments. I now see firsthand how valuable scholarships can be for students working toward a degree; with the aid of grants and scholarships, it is sometimes the only way for students to afford college. I am so thankful for the Anchor Scholarship and all it has helped me achieve so far in my career.”
