“I believe she is different from everyone else based on her motivation and drive towards her life goals. She is going to school to become a nurse and her dedication to doing so is immeasurable. Jillian should be chosen to receive this scholarship because she is always willing to help others before herself. I think her hard work and kind personality should be rewarded with this scholarship.”

“Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in supplying financial aid to students like me. One of the most fulfilling experiences as a student is working with organizations such as ASF. To me, a scholarship signifies trust from the foundation to the student that they believe in my potential to do great things…My father spent 30 years in the Navy and by working with ASF I feel that I’m honoring his legacy in my academic career…Thank you for the support that you have given to me and countless other students.”
