I am a single mother, and I am pursuing a Degree in Nursing. I want to become a nurse researcher in Cancer. However, it is so challenging for me to work full time and attend school full time. This scholarship might help me work part-time and focus on my studies.

I am a 60 year old Registered Medical Assistant. I work in Surgical Oncology and I was enrolled in college to obtain my RN/BSN when I was told that I could not complete my degree because I had hit my financial aid ceiling. I am truly committed to becoming a nurse in the field of oncology because I am committed to this. I love working in that field and I know it takes a very special kind of person to be able to handle the highs and low it brings. Please help me to be able to complete my degree so that I can continue to help . This scholarship can really make a difference not only in my life but in the lives of countless others I can help. I see the nurses on the front lines of the Pandemic and I want to do my part helping on the front lines as well. I know that I can be a great contribution in the fight against this horrific invisible enemy we now face. Thank you......

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? [...]
