My name is Aaron Dobbs, and I would like to just briefly summarize what opportunities the scholarships that I have received from the Foundation have allowed me access to. Because of my awards, I am now able to attend CSI with the goal of achieving my Associates degree with virtually no debt. This will help facilitate my success here at CSI, and undoubtedly contribute to my success elsewhere, be it a 4-year university or the workplace. My plans for additional education include the attendance of a university, although I am unsure which one at this point.
I was asked to write this letter to the College of Southern Idaho foundation and I am very grateful for the opportunity. The CSI Foundation has been funding my education for the last two years, and without them, I would not be where I am; graduating in the spring with my Mathematics Education Degree. Because of the foundation, I knew that someone cared that I was going to college and that someone believed in me.
Receiving a scholarship from the foundation has been a great help to me as I get through school. This year with the scholarship I was able to pay my credit card back in full for my schoolbooks and continue to get through school debit free. This last semester I have been honored to join the CSI Honors Program, which will definitely help me as I go to transfer to a four-year school in the fall. As of now I am planning to apply to Harvard, Pennsylvania University, and Brown. With my cumulative GPA of a 3.
