Brandi I  on 2/8/2021 8:54:29 PM

My name is Brandi Isbell, and I believe that I would qualify for this scholarship. My mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast cancer, and after chemotherapy she was in remission. However, in 2013, my mom was then diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She fought for a long painful 8 months, until her body couldn't take it anymore. My bestfriend, hero, and the person I looked into left my world forever on August 9th 2013. There is no doubt that I haven't struggled with her death, but it takes time for things to feel better. I know that my mom would be proud for how far I have come today, and I am so proud to be continuing my education with her spirit along with me. I am currently pursing a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management.

My name is Peyton and I would like to apply for this scholarship. I had fought stage Four Germ Cell Tumor cancer as a kid. It caused me to push a little harder for the things I want because I am hard of hearing and have some long term medical problems. I go to college, I do color guard and winter guard and I work. I really want to work in the medical field and I think the big reason is because of being a survivor of cancer.

My name is Meagan. I would like to apply for this scholarship as my mom has had cancer since I was two years old. She has had ovarian cancer 6 times now with a full hysterectomy and chemotherapy, as well as breast cancer twice with a double mastectomy. Her cancer has shaped me into a strong individual and a hard worker. I am pursuing my masters in clinical mental health counseling so I can help others.

Connor W  on 10/17/2015 7:53:32 PM

My name is Connor Wiltsie and I am a scholar athlete. I am a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma at the age of 8 years old. I have gained a lot of strength from this experience and value the new life I have been given. I hope to become a doctor and give back to those who helped me. My grandfather died of skin cancer and I am hopeful that by becoming a doctor I can someday make a difference in helping to cure this terrible disease.

March is the first month students may hear back from colleges they applied to during regular admission. Whether an acceptance letter comes in the mail or through an online portal, the excitement of being accepted into college is tangible.

More Schools Adopting Test-Optional Merit Aid

March 2, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Back in September, a few colleges who had already adopted a test-optional policy for the current admissions cycle announced that they would be awarding merit scholarships without the need for applicants to submit test scores. Since then, more and more colleges and universities have quietly adopted test-optional merit aid policies to complement their currently test-optional admissions. [...]

Avoid Student Debt at Colleges with No Student Loans

February 25, 2021

by Izzy Hall

Here at Scholarships.com, we connect students with scholarships that can help alleviate the amount of student loans they need to take out to pay for college. But there are colleges out there that offer students such generous financial aid packages that they need to take out very little in loans if at all. These “no student loans” colleges replace student loans in financial aid packages with additional scholarships and grants to help fund a student’s tuition. Students accepted into these schools will pay much less than the cost of tuition and thus will not be as burdened with student debt. [...]
