Hello, my name is Maxine Brown doctoral candidate in psychology, I am developing a research proposal for my doctoral dissertation at Argosy University on Line, and the title is professional experiences of blind therapists. I am requesting you to participate in my study by completing an online survey which consist of 15 questions.
My survey does not ask for any personally identifying information, the study participant’s identification will be completely anonymous.
The invitation to complete the online survey is for all totally blind or low vision therapist, between the age of 22 and 65. I would be happy to provide any further information you may require in order to make a decision.
I will need a contingent approval letter please.

Hi! I am already a graduate in college. However, I would still want to have my Master's degree but I also encounter the same problem as yours. I would suggest that you must read some of the announcements in this website. There is an announcement about scholarship availability. Thanks.

One site I use is you can create a profile and it will find scholarships that you are eligible for. One suggestion I would make is if you do use this site to create a separate email account because whenever there is a new scholarship they send you an email and that's a lot and it builds up fast. Some you have to write essays for and others they pull your name out of a hat but it is a really good place to find lots of scholarships and grants
