Dear Mr. Piazza:
Scholarship America thanks you for your recent gift.
Your thoughtful gift is a vital investment in the
future of our country and the young people
who benefit. In September of 2003, more than 103,000
received scholarships through Scholarship America
programs like Dollars for Scholars. These students
more than $142 million dollars in scholarship assistance.
Your support of Scholarship America makes this happen.
For so many of these students, these scholarships
make the difference. At Scholarship America, we like
to tell students that Now You Can! That’s right!
Now You Can pursue your dreams. Now You Can be a doctor,
a nurse, an engineer, a scientist, a social worker,
a teacher, an accountant.
Your gift proclaims Now You Can to every student.
Max Kelley is a first year student at Alfred Technical
College in New York. He received $1,000 scholarship.
Max, is the first in his family to attend college and
is determined to succeed. “I feel like I’ve
already accomplished a lot,” Max said. He added, “Hopefully
I’ll accomplish a whole lot more with postsecondary
schooling, wind up being independent… It feels
great knowing that I can look at something and know
I can do it.” Max is studying to be an electrician.
Max knows the meaning of Now You Can.
Thank you helping Max and thousands like him. If you
