Dr. John Manzella is aware of the challenges of pursuing a degree, particularly when coping with an imprisoned parent. He is now looking forward to the opportunity this scholarship award will provide to help a standout student. A recent study estimates that 5% of American children, or around 7% of all children, have at least one parent in prison. Children of jailed parents confront a stigma frequently perpetuated in the classroom, adding to the numerous difficulties they already experience outside school. Dr. Manzella is determined to assist worthy students juggling school, work, and family by providing them with scholarships. Scholarships are a fantastic opportunity to reduce or eliminate the financial stress associated with education. For students who are struggling financially, this might be a godsend. You may get ahead in the internship or job search process with the help of a scholarship. It is always to your benefit to stand out from the crowd during a job hunt. Joining this group may benefit your professional and personal development and your sense of community. Student-to-student and student-to-teacher communication are crucial because it provides a window into other people's experiences and viewpoints. Simply put, scholarships allow bright, hardworking individuals to pursue higher education without incurring the crushing financial load of years of loan payments. Scholarship applications are time well spent because of the long-term benefits they may provide during and after college. Through this scholarship, Dr. Manzella also wants to increase awareness of the challenges these young students face while pursuing degrees.
