Domestic abuse hit such a big area for me. I grow up watching my mother go through so much with men. It left such a deep scar on my mother and myself. With me being the oldest I had to be her rock at such a young age. after a while it becomes a life style of pain and healing. I know i can give this scholarship my all if giving the chance.

Due to my experience I am now disabled not able to return to my nursing career of 20yrs. Need to go back to school and have no funds to start over.

Yes I applied for this scholarship because I have experienced this in a part in my life, and I feel as if someone should ever go through this at all.

As someone who had endured domestic abuse through the majority of my education, this scholarship would suit me not only to help me further my education, but so i may afford to leave the state with my mother, to keep us both safe.

Domestic violence has consumed my life for the past year and finally being free of it I feel that this scholarship would be a perfection option for me.

For domestic violence, i have gone through my fair spare of emotional abuse. I feel like this scholarship would best suit for me for that reason.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional.
