Im applying for this scholarship because, i love baking and pastry. I was at the art institute here in ca, at san bernadino. They closed down and i didnt even get to finish. I only had 2 quarters to go. all of the other ai near me shut down as well. No where is accepting my transcripts and i have to start from scratch to get my associates degree. And now im stuck paying off a loan. And my dream is to be a top pastry chef and i work as a pastry chef for a restaurant but, to me that degree meant everything to me and now i cant really afford to get into another culinary school because of my loans and all my stuff for ai. This scholarship would really help me finish up my degree. I have two little boys who love what i do and i wouldnt change it for the world

Is it too late to apply for this scholarship because it's not letting me apply?

I told my granddaughter Tahlia Linder about this. She has been accepted at Johnson & Wales in Miami where she wants to study the pastry arts. They have offered a scholarship to her but it is not enough. She has a GPA of 4.1, she is biracial and Jewish. She has been very active in her High School band in Pensacola Florida where she plays the trombone and has been a drum major for 2 years. She would be a credit to any school.

I have been accepted at Indiana University of Pennsylvania(Punxsutawney). I have worked in a cafe as a Pastry Chef. I now work in a Bar and Grill. Becoming a Chef is my dream. This scholarship would go a long way in helping me realize that.

I would love to get this Scholarship to help me get into Johnson and Wales and study breads and pastries which has been my dream since I was three years old. Thank you for considering me!

I am a Alaskan Native American enrolled to attend the Culinary Institute of American, Greystone campus in California. I am currently volunteering for a local soup kitchen in my home town to satisfy enrollment requirements. I am seriously interested in pursuing this academic goal and return to my home community and serve aquatic foods to my Native community. My grandfather was an Alaskan Native elder and motivated me to pursue college. His response to my questioning about his taste in foods was always countered by, "my next meal". I miss him and his humor and standing in the Native community. Since his death I am more than motivated to obtain and education in the Culinary Arts and return to my Native community to serve others.

I applied for this scholarship because I have been in love with culinary arts since i was six years old.

I really want this scholarship because I could then fulfill my dream of becoming a chef. I never thought I could qualify for anything else, and this is perfect for me.

Kristin P  on 12/16/2013 1:10:40 PM

I really need this scholarship because I want to conquer my dreams and start my own bakery and this scholarship would definitely help with my college tuition.

Harvard Revokes Parkland Shooting Suvivor's Admissions Offer

June 18, 2019

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

Harvard revoked more admissions offers - this time involving 10 students who participated in a Facebook group called "Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens." Jokes about abusing children and the Holocaust and insulting comments about different racial and ethnic groups were found in the group, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Earlier this month, Harvard also rescinded an admission offer to Kyle Kashuv who, when he was 16 years old, used inflammatory and racist language, including the N-word, right before the Parkland shooting at his school, Stoneman Douglas High School. The shootings have since "changed him and made him more mature," he claims. Kashuv became famous for his conservatism, pro-gun and pro-Trump activism which he believes, represent a different view on how to prevent future, like tragedies.

In a recent Twitter post, he apologized for his past comments and stated that, "We were 16-year-olds making idiotic comments, using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible...I'm embarrassed by it, but I want to be clear that the comments I made are not indicative of who I am or who I've become in the years since." Shortly thereafter, Harvard looked into his case and eventually revoked his admissions offer. Though university personnel appreciate his "candor and expressions of regret," Harvard "takes seriously" the "qualities of maturity" and of "character" of the students it admits. Despite appealing the revocation, Kashuv was turned down. In his defense, Kashuv argues that, "throughout its history, Harvard's faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots and anti-Semites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn't possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution. But I don't believe that. I believe that institutions and people can grow. I've said that repeatedly." In your opinion, should Kashuv have had his admissions offer revoked based on something he did when he was 16? Why or why not? [...]
