Yes I applied for this scholarship and the reason for that is because I really enjoy giving back to the community for a good cause and all though it would be awesome to win this scholarship and hopefully I do but at the end of the day community service isn't about the money or recognition it's about giving back to the community for me.

I applied for this scholarship because I need to make something of myself . Every additional application represents an opportunity to avoid student loans and help me graduate debt free. Plus, many scholarships can be used for expenses other than tuition. In fact, some are awarded in cash and can be used for anything from supplies to a new laptop to gas for their car.

I applies for this scholarship because I plan on becoming a doctor in the future and for that to happen, I am going to need to go to a good school. The schools I plan on attending cost a lot of money and I need some financial backup.

It is tough for me to come to United state for study, i was only 16 years old with no English, but my mom see the future of mine in America. Since i cam here I started to like this country, because this country has more freedom than my country, freedom of speech, freedom of religion. i think i am going to be last Uyghur generation to come to United state. my national have no chance to come here to study. so i want use this opportunity to try my best to accomplish my education here and change the situation of my national Uyghur.

Dora J  on 6/24/2018 2:45:35 PM

It could be really tough to come to a new country when you are only 15 years old. But I did it. I moved to the United States almost 2 years ago and i love it. Now I'm a Junior and about to graduate in 2019. At first i was scared and shy but later on I learned that there's nothing to be afraid of. I finished freshman year in Hungary and started sophomore year here, I was able to improve my english skills a lot and one of my biggest dreams is me going to college and to be successful in life. I want to show everyone that even though, life isn't the easiest at times but it's all worth it at the end of the day. Also, I want to prove myself that I am able to do whatever I want and to never give up. I applied for this scholarship because this would help me to be successful in life and to persue the education that I desire to get.

McKenzie B  on 1/1/2018 3:04:34 PM
