  1. Jennifer,

    Thank you for posting these. While there are only a few, now and again, that apply to our family, it is so nice to have someone scouring “for us.” We have tried the scholarships sites and find them daunting to the point of avoiding them altogether.

    You are such a giver.

    Thank you for all do for us!

    1. My pleasure. If you look on the JLV site directly, you might find a few more that you can try for. My list is only a tiny representation of the enormous list she puts on her site. If you have any special requests, you can message me and I can try to help you look. I appreciate your comments, thank you!! -Jennifer
