Gwendolyn Schauweker

University Of Hawaii At Hilo

"I am a 51-year old married and returning student attending the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. I live in Ocean View, Hawaii with my husband Gary and I work full-time as a Office Administrator at a local physical therapy clinic about an hour and 30 minutes away from where I live. I attend the University of Hawai'i Hilo pursuing a BA degree in Business Administration. I could not believe that I actually won a scholarship. I hardly ever win anything. It would be such a blessing to me to have this scholarship. My husband was laid off from his job in April of 2010, which was a month before I graduated with my AA degree in Liberal Arts.

It has been a struggle and we take it one day at a time, but we do the best that we can in the situation that we are in right now. For the first time in my academic career, I had to ask for a student loan, which I hated, because I paid my way through the AA level and felt so good that I would not have an enormous debt to face once I finished my education. I did get a student loan, but I am still faced with the opportunity of having to pay it off when I am done with school. If I can get this scholarship and others, that will help to get my tuition costs, fees and books paid for."
