Being even pondered for this scholarship is a reward because its not about us but about what/how we help shape the future for the younger generations. Being part of a community is for the understanding that its not just about you and that mindset is what we need more of.

Applying for this scholarship will give me the opportunity to help others. This scholarship will not only help me financially but also give me the chance at medical school. Since I was 10 years old I have always said I wanted to become a doctor so I could help others at a second chance at life. I will be helping others to become better not only for themselves but for their families.

Applying to this scholarship will broaden my horizons for greater opportunities and a more financially and academically sound future. Like many others, my aspirations include helping others and making a positive impact on my surrounding communities. In the near future, I’m hoping to work in law enforcement and help others realize that there are still good people in this world who value the well-being of others.

I will be applying for this scholarship because I believe in helping children have better lives by treating their illnesses and providing them and their families with valuable opportunities to vaccinations and medical care to ensure they can live long healthy lives

I will be applying for this scholarship because I am very passionate about promoting a healthy and fit life based on the principles and importance of research surrounding modern health issues. Throughout my school I have raised awareness about the obesity our nation is experiencing. I am a currently a model athlete and student and in the future I plan on becoming an osteopathic physician with intentions to constantly advocate the importance of health and to raise awareness about the consideration of scientific research in relation to the common man.

Francis M  on 3/27/2018 8:51:18 PM

I will be applying for this scholarship. I have been very active in spreading awareness about the opioid epidemic in our community and hosted our school's first Opioid Awareness Day last December. It is so important that we spread awareness and help those in need by getting them the help they need.

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? [...]
