Hey Go Getta! Welcome to ADRI.V's Go Getta Guide where I will be dropping all information for you to go get it, whatever it is! This week my focus is on ways to offset your cost to education. For those who know, I am a major advocate for higher education but I hate the cost of it, this is why I am so grateful for programs like Say Yes Buffalo where the vision is that every student can graduate high school and college when given the proper supports, resources, and opportunities. Through the Say Yes Scholarship, Say Yes is truly providing opportunities.

In addition to Buffalo students having a chance to be supported by Say Yes I feel it's still necessary for students to apply for additional scholarships. With this understanding, as I learn about a scholarship, internship and any opportunities to help one to Go Get It, I will be sharing.

This week's Scholarship is the Community Action Organization of WNY Education Task Force 2020 scholarship.
