The title for this internship looks very amazing and is obviously interesting for me as my major is engineering.

Alexa Alvarez  on 7/7/2020 2:02:45 PM

Hello! My name is Alexa Alvarez and throughout my high school career, I have been involved in many math programs including math league my freshman year and explored the STEM program by challenging myself with difficult classes such as AP Computer Science A. Through that class, I’ve learned to love computer science and my interest in the field has grown, as well as my interest in both math and science. Not only do I personally enjoy the subjects, but have shown my strengths in them by successfully maintaining a 3.75 GPA in both subjects, with math being a solid 4.6. It would also give me the opportunity to help others who struggle with the subjects. This passioned stemmed from my childhood, where I started to learn the concept of inventing and building creations; curious investigation has always led to practical application. Throughout elementary school, I would experiment with robot mechanisms and computers, building and programming fun or useful devices out of LEGOs. Retrospectively, I see that this process cemented my lifelong fascination with creating nifty devices. In middle school, my interest expanded from this foundation, as I transitioned into coding algorithms. It was to my knowledge at the time that I was a curious person and loved the idea of applying what I learned to real life situations. This allowed me to explore classes in high school I have come to love, such as AP Statistics and AP Computer Science A. I often hear others ask for help in the subject regarding the STEM field, and with my knowledge, I hope to one day help many others in my journey with computers.

Debita J  on 4/11/2018 1:45:47 PM

Hi! I'm Debita Josephine or you can called me Debby. The reason I apply for this scholarship is because I need help to support my education in Engineering. I'm currently studying at Pasadena City College in Computer Science Major. I really love programming and I'd love to learn about programming languages, such as C#, C++, and Java. I also like to do a programming through Visual Studio 2017 and Android Studio. And through this scholarship, I hope that you can help me to make my dream come true, to be a software engineer. Because my parents just got fraud by someone from our country and I still have 1 brother and 1 sister who's still dependent. I know that education fees is really expensive, especially for an international student like me. And in addition, I couldn't get any jobs at school because I'm not a financial aid students (some of them required me to be a federal aid student in order to work at school). In conclusion, I really need help you to support my education in order to develop my abilities in Engineering fields. Thank you so much for listening to my comments.

Hieu L  on 5/18/2017 1:36:41 AM

Hi. My name is Lu. I apply for this scholarship because I need your help with the scholarship for school support. I came from Vietnam. Since I was born my parents always taught me how to count numbers, how to spell words, and some lessons that teach me to work harder. They say, “never give up on my responsibilities and help people when you can”. This is important, and is the advice for me to remember when I want to give up. I always remember and see it as motivation that will keeps me moving forward. It was make me try hard in schools and help people at all time, just like in shool I was volunteer at lunch time to make and give food for students in school. When I volunteer, it makes me felt joyful to know more about other students, and teachers in school that provide space for me to improve my communication skills. When during my first 2 years in high school, I was the secretary of Franklin’s Viet Club, and participate as part of their ASB group and Vietnamese Club to spend my spare time to support the students’ ideas and build their experience and tutoring for them in school. I was worked together with people and my desire is to take classes in the medical field at Seattle Central Community College and keep doing my best with it. I know if I study in the medical field it will cost plenty of money that my family income cannot support my career path. If I can get your scholarship to support my medical studies, I will work hard and will use my money I gain in my career to support others like me.

Joeanna W  on 4/4/2017 3:22:09 PM

I applied for this scholarship to help with my college tuition,and I would love to win to help better my career so that I will be able to also have my community events to help people in need.

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. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
