My name is Samoana Poyer I am a freshmen at a HBCU. i am majoring in Computer Science.I am full Samoan. I applied for this scholarship to further my education to become a programmer at Google. No one in my family ever went to a university let alone graduate college. I would love to be the first in my family to graduate just to show my younger family members that they can do anything they put their minds to. I hope to receive this scholarship to continue my career. Thank you for this opportunity. May GOD bless you!

Nhu Nguyen  on 3/15/2020 11:59:12 AM

Hello, My name is Nhu Nguyen. I came to the U.S. in 2019. I am an international student from a countryside of Vietnam. The main reason I chose U.S. to study is my family's political background. Moreover, I am the first college generation of my family. Therefore, I am looking for a scholarship to help me reach my goal. I am majoring in Business Administration at Century College. My dream is running a chain store of Banh Mi, traditional food of Vietnamese, because of its convenience and affordability. Getting this scholarship would be a great honor to me and my family. It is also a great encouragement for me to keep studying hard.

Tereise T  on 3/13/2020 12:56:35 PM

Hi, my name is Tereise Tosi. I am of American Samoa decent but also of Chinese decent. My dad is full Samoan. He was born in American Samoa and came to live here when he was about 20. He had been to the US before but it was only for a visit. When he met my mother, they had me, and my dad decided to leave his home so that he could be with my mother to help raise me. My mother is Samoan as well but was born here in Orange County, California. She has 6 siblings and growing up they moved a lot as well. They even lived in American Samoa for sometime. My mom is also of Chinese decent. Her father, my grandfather was born from a Chinese family, but adopted and raised from a Samoan family. My family and I associate more with our Samoan side because we are. Although I've always wanted to see and learn more about my Chinese family. I am applying for this scholarship because my parents need help financially. I have verbally committed to play softball at Cal State San Bernardino but it's still going to be too much for my parents out of pocket. My parents have done everything for me. My only goal in life is to make sure they don't have to worry about me. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please consider me for this scholarship. Have a blessed rest of your day.

I came to the U.S in year 2011. The main reason we moved here is because my mom wanted a better future for me and my siblings. No one in my family has ever graduated from college, so now that graduation is coming we are looking for scholarships to help me with my first year of college. My goal is to become a Nurse. Ever since I was little I always knew that I wanted to be a nurse and help people. This scholarship would really help me fulfill my dream.

MelLin Grace  on 1/21/2020 11:34:54 AM

My parents adopted me at the age of 20 months from YuLin City, Shaanxi Province, PRC in the fall of 2002. I am 19 years old and currently finishing my first year of college. I am on the Dean's List this past semester. My goal is to complete my college degree and work in the field of business and marketing. Our family is financially stable but my parents are both retirement age, so we are looking for opportunities to help with the cost of my college education. I am working two part-time jobs to help with college expenses, but we still need to pursue other opportunities for financial assistance. Thank you for considering my request to apply for this scholarship.

Currently a high school senior class of 2020. Having been diagnosed with a neurological disorder (TS), I anticipate with hope to receive a scholarship that not lifts up the burden of personal finances for my family but to allow myself the focus on pursuing a career in finding a cure through the studies of Neuroscience. My goal is to one day find a better cure/solution to those that are affected by Neurological diseases especially mine as there is no cure currently.

Hello, I am Mariel. I am a 12th grader (class of 2020) at Temescal Canyon High School in Lake Elsinore, CA. Receiving this scholarship would not only pay for 2 years at my dream school but it will also help me chase my dreams of joining the FBI to join Behavioral Analysis. It would be a dream come true to provide justice to those who deserve it. Coming from a family with severe financial needs has put a strain on my decisions to go to college. I just wish to attend a four-year university and pursue my dream career.

I applied for this scholarship because as a first generation student of a low-income family, I would like to be able to go through college without stressing my parents out due to any financial obstacles that may appear. I know that they have a little money saved up for my education but I believe that they should save it more for their health as they get older. This scholarship would help my parents out a lot.

Schools Offering Tuition Discounts This Fall

August 14, 2020

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus pandemic has affected nearly everything about college – and for some schools, that includes tuition. Beyond tuition freezes or removing application fees, these colleges have gone one step further in reducing costs for their students. A tuition discount recognizes not only the economic difficulties many students and their families are facing due to COVID-19, but also acknowledges that mostly or entirely online classes are generally not perceived as being worth the same amount of money as a full residential college experience. Some of these institutions also plan to offer additional scholarship funding to the students who need it most. [...]

Student-Run Food Banks Making a Difference on Campus

August 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

You may be surprised to learn that many of your fellow college students struggle with hunger. About 1 in 5 students are affected by food insecurity. In a normal time, not getting enough to eat can impact students’ grades, health and ability to finish their degrees. And a loss of campus jobs, housing and meal plans due to the pandemic puts more students in danger of going without the food they need. That’s where student-run food banks and pantries come in. [...]
