To those applicants not receiving our scholarship:

As you might imagine, it is very difficult for us to choose the final David Scholar recipients from
the large number of applications that we receive. We always are impressed with the level of
maturity, work-ethic and desire to succeed of the young adults that take the time to complete
our rather lengthy application. However, inevitably, we cannot grant scholarships to all of those
candidates that are truly deserving and show the characteristics to succeed in their post
secondary education endeavors. However, we wanted to make more people aware of the aid
that might be available to them so that they do not abandon their dream to go on to college. The
financial aid process is a cumbersome one but if applicants have a lower EFC (expected family
contribution) as determined after submitting their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student
Aid) there is a good chance that a large portion of their tuition and fees can be covered if they
attend cost effective schools such as Stark State University and Kent State Stark. We have
included links below to the financial aid offices to both of those fine institutions. This aid comes
in the form of Federal Pell Grants and Ohio College Opportunity Grants. The 2009 maximum
awards for Pell and Ohio College Opportunity Grants are $5,350 and $2,496, respectively.
When taking into consideration that Stark State’s tuition per credit hour is $127 and Kent State
Stark’s is between $217 and $255, it is very attainable to attend these colleges with aid
available from the two programs listed above. WE STRONGLY URGE candidates that might
qualify for the Federal Pell Grant and the Ohio College Opportunity Grant to contact the
financial aid offices at these two schools. It may mean the difference between continuing your
college education or abandoning your dream to do so. Best wishes to all of you.
