For me, this scholarship would mean a lot. Being a white female with mediocre grades really hurts me on the side of scholarships. For the past four, and honestly 12, years I have worked so hard to make sure that my grades were up so that I was able to get into a good college but now it feels like it doesn't even matter. My family isn't the type of people who get everything they want, we have to work for it. I hope to make my family proud by coming up with my hard background to making a name for myself. I know from reading other people's comments on here that so many of us are going through hardships, some definitely worse than mine. I just hope this money can go to someone who is dedicated and will use it for a good purpose.

Melanie S  on 3/24/2020 8:05:38 PM

I applied for this scholarship because i would adore the opportunity to achieve my dreams of not only becoming a nurse practitioner but to be a professional health provider for the community.

DP  on 3/24/2020 5:59:30 PM

I applied for this scholarship to spring forward my future and chip down the cost of college

Sydney D.  on 3/21/2020 11:25:07 PM

One other difficulty for my family, which I hadn't mentioned before, is that my parents are divorced, and my father is not able to contribute at all to my education. Only my mother will be involved in that regard.

Sydney D.  on 3/21/2020 11:22:56 PM

I have been a dilligent student throughout high school; however, one of the schools that accepted me (which I would consider my dream school) has a one of the highest tuitions in the nation--surpassing the Ivies and most other US universities. Paying for this college's tuition will be difficult for my family, and I am incredibly grateful for any amount of money I can receive.

Camden K  on 3/21/2020 1:56:41 PM

I really need this scholarship to help out with my financial needs. You can only take out so many loans. I truly desire a higher education with as much help as I can get.

Emily D  on 3/13/2020 11:53:56 AM

yes. I'm stating nursing school I do need the money to help with books and college. This will help further my education so I don't have to work hard like my parents did, they are on disability now working 25 years in a factory that broke there bodies down. thank u

Bryce T  on 3/11/2020 12:58:42 PM

I'm not saying I do not need this money, but I will say that I'm going college not only to better my future, but to also give back to my parents. To let them know they did a great job raising me and to overall thank them for what they have done for me.

Ella K.  on 3/9/2020 11:27:42 AM

I applied for this scholarship to help me pay for a higher education. As a musician, i know I wont make a lot of money, however I really really want a higher education to achieve my goals.

Elena F.  on 3/7/2020 10:21:34 AM

I need this scholarship to pay for college in the next few years.

Kam S.  on 3/6/2020 9:07:46 AM

I really need this 1,000 dollars. I and my family have been struggling my mom is in nursing and barely can pay for it. It would mean the world to her if I could help pay for her books. I just want to make sure she gets to go to school with all of her stuff. She is a great mother but we really don't have the money for anything especially her books. I would love to get this opportunity to see my mom smile again.

Karla R.  on 3/5/2020 1:43:20 PM

I applied for this scholarship to try and push for an opportunity to get an award for college. I really need the most help i can to pay for school.

Angel W  on 3/2/2020 1:58:33 AM

I want to apply for this scholarship for my self i am a single mother of 5 kids that would love to go to college to further my education to get a good job for my kids but without this scholarship i can't go to college because i don't have the money to put myself through school.

Reagen R  on 2/28/2020 3:44:14 PM

I applied for the scholarship for myself (high school senior). I may not be able to go to a university without scholarships, I really need the money.

Walter B  on 2/4/2020 6:42:12 AM

Yes, I did apply for the scholarship for my son

Brian T  on 1/28/2020 12:35:15 PM

I did apply for the scholarship. I mainly applied since I just need help to pay for school.

C W  on 1/24/2020 7:39:11 PM

People, stop trying to make the scholarship people take pity on you. It depends on how good your application is, not how hard your life is.

Megan S  on 1/16/2020 11:50:32 PM

I have gown up as the youngest sibling, my whole childhood always had to be if my mom got her drugs for the day and if she didn’t it was always bad I remember praying for the pain to stop and it did my mom have been clean for almost four years, my freshman year of highschool I was sexually abused, I blame my self and I lost my faith, it now been almost a year since that stuff happen and I have been taking a class this year in highschool about how we should start applying for scholarships soon, my life goals is to help other people and to make sure they live a life I wasn’t able to.the day of my 15th birthday I apply so many places to work just so I could start saving up money for college but no where really hire at 15 here because of the labor laws and I truly don’t see how I can do it paying for everything myself. And I truly understand if I don’t get this scholarships their is a bunch of great essays on here.

Jeanne MB  on 1/13/2020 1:50:06 PM

This scholarship will help me create a better foundation for my education and push me in the right direction for where to start my career!

Jose Lopez  on 1/13/2020 8:11:57 AM

I want to go to college

Kimalya R  on 1/12/2020 11:20:48 AM

I applied for this scholarship because it will help me reach my goal that I have dreamed of. Being b the first to go to college was important to me being in foster care and then some of my other relatives adopted me. I’ve been on my own trying to better myself for awhile that scholarship will give me the push I need to be successful in life and have a better future

Tishia A.  on 1/12/2020 7:45:23 AM

I am applying for this scholarship in hopes to finish my goals. I'm a mother, who works to provide for my 4 children, however, with one income it financially is hard to provide without struggle. I would like to alleviate some of the weights my college education may provide. I already have a part-time job, with the hospital I plan to proceed my future with, however any small scholarship added will do wonders to my situation and help with school financial stress. I am going to major in Nursing with a RN degree, since I do believe it is important to help as many lives as possible, not just my family, but also other families in need.

Mayci R  on 1/11/2020 9:03:05 PM

I applied for this scholarship because I need assistance in covering the expenses of my tuition and books. I'm a freshman in college and my sister is about to graduate high school and go to college as well. This scholarship would help me because I'm already taking out loans and I'm about to start working again this semester of college. It would also help my parents as well so they don't have to worry much about my expenses and can start helping my sister.

Nicholas H  on 1/11/2020 3:27:33 PM

I am a sophomore at UNCG and love being a Spartan. I am currently a psychology major and hope to practice clinical psychology after pursuing my PhD. With 6 siblings, I can really use this scholarship!

Mariah H  on 1/10/2020 4:10:58 PM

I'm applying for this scholarship becuase I'm a super senior at Minnesota State Universisty Moorhead pursuing my bachelor of science in Elementary Education. I'm not currently working and won't be graduating until next fall. I'm the first person in my immediate family to go to college and I'm not currently working as I started an internship last fall. There is nothing I want more than to be able to complete my degree. I am not able to cover the cost of this semesters tuition with the federal student aid that I have received. I don't have enough of my own money to pay for the rest of tuition since my internship was unpaid and I the last pay check I received was at the beginning of September.

Kimberly R  on 1/9/2020 11:41:25 PM

The ability to receive this scholarship not only will help me pursue and further my career at Mchenry county college but will help me achieve the ability to help my family financially as I get my degree in physical therapy assistant. Thank you.

Alyssa L  on 1/9/2020 8:48:00 PM

I am applying for this scholarship in order to be able to farther my education without the added stress of money and student debt.

Anokhi S  on 1/8/2020 8:57:14 PM

I am very honored to have been able to spread my love for my school because I believe in college readiness. My high school has done wonders for me and my peers and am so fortunate to become a proud alum!!

Nancy P.  on 1/8/2020 12:48:11 AM

I am applying for this scholarship as it will help further reach my goal. Grouped up in a household of 5 wasn’t bad till we had one income. While struggling to handle that, kids got into the picture. Living in a small, old-styled town, it only feels right to creat something big for myself. Using sports to my advantage, I am verbally committed to a great community college. Only problem is housing. No dorms are provided, which now leads to financial problems. Apartment? Rent? Essentials of living? A senior in high school, I sure can say Im a bit terrified. Any kind of help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Julia N  on 1/7/2020 10:23:27 PM

I go to USC Upstate for Nursing, and I love it here. It's a small school with a ton of nice people. I'm currently in my first semester in nursing school, and I need all the help I can get!

Danitza V  on 1/7/2020 10:04:23 PM

I applied for this scholarship because my family has been struggling to pay tuition for me and my sister . We are both attending Pima community college and hoping to get a degree in social work. I hope I get the opportunity to finish my degree and help repay my parents. I hate to see my parents struggle so much too pursue are dreams were they can be using that money for themselves. It would be very helpful winning this scholarship and will help my parents out of debt.

Ethan H  on 1/6/2020 3:13:40 PM

I applied for this scholarship because I love the school that I go to right now Tarleton State University. It is a beautiful campus filled with nice people all trying to make their way in the world as well. It would be very helpful winning this scholarship I would be thrilled if I won!

Eriana  on 1/6/2020 12:14:24 PM

I am very excited for this scholarships. This will help me in school with my book and Tuition.

Zalique Taylor  on 1/6/2020 8:40:41 AM

yes, I applied to this scholarship. It is so exciting and nerve wrecking to see if I actually have a chance of getting free money for college. I applied for this scholarship because I need more aid for college and I really want to further my education without being so much money in debt.

Agnes D  on 1/5/2020 4:31:08 PM

I am applying to this scholarship because at the moment I'm going to have to stop going to college because I can't afford it. I am receiving no help from family members, which makes it extremely difficult to pay for all alone. I really want to go back and continue my education, but my financial situation right now is not going to allow that to happen. Hopefully I can receive this scholarship and pay some of my tuition.

Joseph. B  on 1/5/2020 10:48:44 AM

I am applying for this scholarship because I am beginning my journey. As a freshman in high school, I am just learning what steps to take. This scholarship( any the others, I am applying for) will give me hope and motivation to keep pushing to my goal of attending college in 3.5 years.

Kaitlyn Schoeb  on 1/3/2020 8:12:56 PM

Scholarships are the only way I could get an education at a University, every single one helps.

TaKiyah Gines  on 1/2/2020 3:25:41 PM

So excited to search for scholarships and find the right one for my future.

Sara Aufieri  on 12/31/2019 2:43:34 PM

Excited to search for scholarships and top find one!

Kajah S  on 12/30/2019 9:38:00 AM

I happen to be looking for good scholarships and it brought me here. I really hope that I get it

Sara O  on 12/30/2019 1:14:24 AM

I am applying for this scholarship in hopes I receive it. My mother is a single mother, who works to provide for my sister and me, however, she deals with issues related to mental health and depression. I would like to alleviate some of the weights my college education may provide. I already have a side job, with my selfemploye dbussiness where I sell artwork to save up for my college education, however any small scholarship added will do wonders to my situation. I am going to major in Environmental Science, since I do believe it is important to help as many lives as possible, not just my mothers, but the voiceless animals, and our own as humanity.

Beatrize G  on 12/26/2019 1:00:07 PM

I am participating in the chance of getting this scholarship because although my family does have the money to pay for part of my college, I do not want them doing any thing more than they already have. They should be able to spend that money on themselves. They have done so much for me. If I am going to be successful in life I can't depend on them. I work at a restaurant to try and help pay for my college but it is hard juggling school and a job and volunteering. I want to major in computer science so that I can help change the world in the future and make everyone's life easier.

Emma J  on 12/25/2019 2:37:59 PM

I am applying for this scholarship to get a chance to help my family and I financially with college expenses. This scholarship will help me be able to attend college to get a degree in Biology so I can move on to Physical Therapy school. It will help fund a dream that I have had all my life. This scholarship helps me get closer to fulfilling that dream!

Ali S.  on 12/23/2019 12:39:11 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I need to get aid for my tuition, and pay the rest of college expenses. I am looking forward to get aid for my college because it will be really hard for my parents to pay for my studies since they only get minimum pay.

 on 12/22/2019 2:11:36 PM

I applied to this scholarship because my parents are not able to afford for me to go to college. My father was in the military because our family was in so much college debt. He used his school grant to pay off his college debt meaning that my school will not be paid off. My mother is poor and I don't want her to pull loans from the bank so that she could fund my dream college (which is SCAD). I decided to take the initiative and find ways to pay for college. I found that if I apply and win many scholarships, I would be able to afford an education without becoming a burden to my parents. I am a sophomore in high school who has a goal to earn at least $400,000 or more in scholarships, and this sweepstake helps me take one extra step towards reaching my goal.

Najiyah W  on 12/19/2019 8:39:14 PM

I applied to this scholarship because I want to attend a 4-year University and I will need all the aid I can get. As a first-generation student, my parents know little about the college application process and are hesitant about taking out loans. I want to major in Wildlife Science and become a Wildlife Conservationist.

Iayana J  on 12/19/2019 10:57:51 AM

I am applying for this scholarship because getting into college is a dream of mine. Most of my family are either college drop-outs, or didn't make it to college at all.

Laura B  on 12/17/2019 10:09:45 AM

I am applying to this in order to get money for college. Money is a really big factor for me, it makes it or breaks it for me..

Aaron T  on 12/13/2019 6:13:19 PM

I have applied for this scholarship with the intent of pursuing a stress free learning experience at George Mason University. Money is always an issue, and I am searching far and wide for scholarships that will provide the foundation for my academical experience. Currently, I am interested in a degree in Forensic Science. I have the potential to ease the pain of families that lost loved ones to irresponsible criminals, but this can only come true with your help.

Cristian M  on 12/10/2019 11:57:37 AM

I am applying for this scholarship in order to help pay for college. I am going to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical in Daytona Beach to pursue a degree in Aerospace and Occupational Safety with hopes of becoming a safety manager for big airline company. Receiving this scholarship would be of great help to me in paying it as it has a very expensive price point on it. My family has no intention of helping me pay for college, so whatever help I can get would be of great appreciation!

Sarrah G  on 12/5/2019 1:35:48 PM

I am applying to this scholarship in order to help pay for my schooling while I attend Palo Alto College with the Veterinary Technology Program. I have decided that I would like to help my community and the beloved pets that we call family. Receiving this scholarship would be amazing and help my family and me since we are currently paying out of pocket.

Madison H  on 12/2/2019 11:45:55 AM

In order to make my dreams a reality i need as much help as i can get especially because it's an independent school and its also out of state.

Jasmine M  on 12/2/2019 10:28:52 AM

I applied for this scholarship so i can go into college to become a Real estate agent. I am currently a senior attending Palo Verde High school in Las Vegas this scholarship would mean a lot because my family is small and not really financially stable being that i live with a single mother so it's quite difficult to require all the money for college without being an only child.

Nicole W  on 12/2/2019 9:52:04 AM

I applied for this scholarship due to the fact that It Is necessary for me to obtain my college degree to become a special needs teacher. I am a junior attending Midlothian High School in Texas.

I would like to attend the University of Texas at Arlington, it is my cheapest and the most successive option for college.

Karleigh Stroud-Wilkie  on 11/29/2019 2:35:20 PM
