Why are you applying for Financial Aid?
I am international student. I have completed my masters in Cyber Security, my interest is inclined towards machine learning and cyber analytics. I am student and I don’t have any special source of income I was in governmental school which means that i had a free educational in my country.I don’t really have money to afford joining top world universities,i had no job and my family income low.I plan on adding any certificates I’ve attained to all of my applications/resume.I need all the help I can get to land a job. I live only for my scholarship,it is very much difficult for me to gather such amount of money for the certificate. Financial Aid will help me take this course without any adverse impact on my monthly essential needs.
