I'm currently a senior and I have begun applying for scholarships and colleges. I come from a low-income family, less than 20,000 a year, and I am Hispanic. Because of my family's low-income i got a job at a local fast-food place the summer of my Sophomore year in order to contribute. When Summer comes around I usually work 40 hours a week, however when school starts I am only able to work weekends, about 20 hours a week, in order for me to keep up with my AP classes. Is it a good idea to mention my job in college applications or scholarship applications? Will I receive less money if I mention I have a job? My family doesn't make much money so I really need the most money I can get.
