Well, I guess I ought to apply for this if I ever want the slightest chance of becoming an animator or game designer. It would certainly help, but only a bit. That still counts though. Every bit of money adds up. So, yeah. I'm applying.

Winning this scholarship would mean a lot to me because I want to go to college to be a pediatrician but I'm currently a Senior and working towards my CNA. I have done community service at a Senior Center because I love helping people.

I would love to have this scholarship. I start college at Southwest Baptist University in the fall of 2021. I love to play basketball and softball. I also really enjoy being on the lake. I have a Shih-Tzu naked Ace and I love him dearly!

I would encourage this award to be extended to online public cyber charter schools. Many of these schools offer coursework more difficult than the local districts and the students are motivated to achieve excellent grades. Some students also strive to complete both a full load of high school coursework and college courses taken at local community colleges. Students often include many extra-curriculars from school clubs to sports at both the local districts and privately. It does the community a disservice to exclude these highly motivated students.

Does anyone know how to get volunteer hours and where?

The essay needed for eligibility, what is it about? What is the topic in which we are writing?

Patricia S  on 8/19/2012 5:42:16 PM

I applied for this scholarship in fifth grade and won in 2008, I've been recognized as a repeat or returning scholar in 2010, 2011 and 2012. It's a great program, Dr. Carson is such an inspiration!

Free College? Check Out These Tuition-Free Schools!

October 15, 2020

by Izzy Hall

At Scholarships.com, we help students find scholarships to pay for college tuition. But what if you didn’t have to pay tuition? There are a handful of schools in the U.S. that are tuition-free, meaning that while students may have to pay for room and board or meal plans, they do not have to pay tuition to attend the college. On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]

One of the most beneficial outcomes of the pause of student loan payments has been the improved credit ratings of borrowers. [...]
