Hello,My name is Nada Darwish and i am a senior at Maryvale High School. This is the first scholarship that I am ever applying for and it and stood out to me the most because I believe young woman are really important in our society to show all woman that we also have to be successful and lead a life to be a role model to others. It is important for us girls and woman to stick together. We have to have a big voice and the first step is studying what you love and be good at it. Thank you for reading my statement.

My name is McKenzie Guillory and I am a senior at Eunice High School. I am the oldest of five and I am working very hard to further my education after high school. I am currently enrolled in a dual-enrollment program through LSUE and plan to transfer to Xavier University-New Orleans to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. My inspiration of becoming a nurse comes from seeing my mother work her way from being a certified nursing assistant at the age of 20 yrs then continuing her education and becoming an LPN at the age of 22 yrs. She is currently enrolled in her third semester of the Associates of Nursing Program at LSUE at the age of 34 yrs and will complete her schooling in May 2021. She has taught me that no matter what obstacle is thrown in my way, there's always a way around it to better myself especially in gaining a higher education. I have maintained a g.p.a. of 3.8-4.0 throughout my schooling and continue to push for better. If I was awarded this scholarship it would be put towards furthering my education and would be greatly appreciated.

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. [...]
