My name is Megan and I will start in the fall pursuing a degree to become a dental hygienist. I have been a dental assistant for the past four years. Being able to maintain your life, living expenses, work, and college to top it off can be strenuous. My goal is to become more successful with my degree and a better understanding of oral health care to improve people's quality of life. Dental school is time-consuming and having help to pay tuition will elevate how many hours I have to work and use that time to focus on my studies.

I am a high school senior and currently work at Food City in Chattanooga, TN. I am searching for needed scholarship funds to assist me in financing a college education. My parents are divorced and I am now 18 and no longer will receive any support from my biological father. I would like to accomplish my goals on my own as much as possible. I currently have a 3.9 GPA, scored 27 on my ACT and have taken 2 dual enrollment and 2 AP classes this year as a senior. Please consider me.

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

ACT, Inc., the college admissions testing company, has agreed to pay out $16 million to 65,728 California students with disabilities to settle a class-action lawsuit. The class-action federal lawsuit filed in California in 2018 alleged that ACT, Inc. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and California's Unruh Civil Rights Act by disclosing test-takers' disability status to colleges and scholarship organizations on score reports, and denied certain examinees with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in its Educational Opportunity Service.

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? [...]
