  1. I hope you would consider applicants from the academic non teaching area like school counselors and psychometricians who have to complete their masters degree to meet the ardous requirement for a board exam in order to professionally practice in their fields esp in this era where mental health is call of time.

  2. I hope even none teaching should have a chance to be the one of your scholars and study for the masters degree. I would like to apply on this scholarship to start earned my masters degree.
