Around January I applied for a Merit Scholarship from AFS. I found out that I had been rejected a month or so ago, but my local AFS volunteers told me that they would try their hardest to get me a small scholarship. This past week they notified me that they had awarded me a $500 scholarship from the local chapter. This very generous award has now brought me up to a total of $1800 dollars raised towards my goal.
