I applied for this scholarship to assist in funding my education to gain a Master's degree in Social Work. To emancipate others from their darkness and struggles only fans the flame for a brighter world. I need your help, to help others.

I am a Canadian resident, and I will be attending Niagara University in Lewiston New York. I have been accepted into the Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counceling program and will start this September. I am wondering if I would qualify to apply for this scholarship? I would appreciate it if someone would contact me at their convenience. Thank you so much.

I applied to this scholarship because I am working on my doctorate in psychology. I am a behavioral therapist working with children with autism. My financial is almost run out, so unless I figure something out soon, I will not be able to continue my degree program. I should be able to obtain my BCBA by the end of the year, resulting in a bump in pay, but there will be two school quarters in between where I have no idea how I will pay my tuition. I want to continue learning and be on the cutting edge of my field.

I applied for this scholarship to help aid in funding my Master's degree for Social Work. It is my God-given strength that I aid people in need. It is my passion to spread awareness about taking care of oneself and their mindset come what may.

I did not apply for this scholarship because I have not yet finished my undergraduate courses. I am looking for scholarships to help me complete my undergraduate studies so that I can obtain my educational goal of earning a Masters in Psychology. I want to specialize in counseling and addictions. I have found that I have a great passion for working with victims of sexual abuse/assault.

Ms. Sanita: My name is Gregg Ramsdell and a retired member from the US Army. For the past 31 years I have seen those around me and as I rose through the ranks, those who I have commanded. I am in need for a scholarship for the use in Psychology with a focus on PTSD. I am a 100 percent service connected disabled with multiple combat tours. I feel I can really assist the younger soldiers, law enforcement and other servants in understanding this affliction and be able to live like normal. I am retired from the military and wanting to advance my studies. Ma'am, I am inquiring about the scholarship and feel I can be a valuable asset to our young hero's. Thank you for your consideration. Gregg Ramsdell, US Army Ret'd

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? [...]
