I am a active duty Field Artillery Officer Veteran. After being medically retired, going back to graduate school has provided me purpose and a challenge I have greatly missed from the military. My army career ended earlier than I expected, and returning to school has allowed me to gain the education I need to serve in a new way in the education field, with the hopes of returning to teach on a military installation some day!

I am a disabled army veteran that served from 2007-2016. My goal was to fulfill my 20 years in the Army but due to physical and mental injuries I was not able to achieve that goal. Last 4 years has not been easy, thanks to the Veteran Affairs department my medical providers and mental health counselors I'm working on overcoming my struggles. I am currently enrolled in community college to complete my Associate Degree in Plant Science to transfer to Fresno State University in the near future. It took us, my educational counselor and myself a few months of research finding out what vocational career would fit best my abilities. It was not easy but we found one, Plant Science. Due to my disabilities I am unable to interact to often with people or environment that can trigger my PTSD levels, but I find myself in a very friendly environment when working outdoors. I live in California, central valley an agricultural zone with lots of employment opportunities. I'm currently unemployed which makes financial matters things difficult at home but I'm focus on educating myself and become again a productive citizen for this country. I believe agriculture is vital not only to California but to the nation's economy. This is the field where I want to make my contribution.

I did apply for the scholarship because, my Mom served in the Army and in National Guard, but had to leave the Military because she was pregnant with me. She would want me to get this scholarship.

I am a disabled veteran that severed for 8 1/2 years. I am finishing up my Master's Degree and I am looking for some financial help to get my last few classes paid for. I would be honored to have this scholarship. My goal is to continue my education and obtain a Doctorate Degree in Finance. My dream is to teach college. I currently own a Puppy Academy that trains German Shepherd puppies for disabled veterans that suffer from PTSD, Seizures, and Psychiatric illnesses. Getting this scholarship would tremendously help me achieve my goals and continue to give back to those that serve our country.

I am a United States Veteran trying to finish school. I currently am working toward my bachelors degree in Business Management/Entrepreneur. I am looking for someone extra money for books and tuition and would love to be in the drawing for this scholarship!

I am serving in the Army currently, but I got in a bad accident. I'm recovering from my accident, but there is always a chance of the Army kicking me out. I'm trying to start graduate school before they kick me out. Fingers crossed that they don't kick me out and that I get this scholarship to help pay for school.

Scholarships.com's Weird Scholarships Part Two

There are a lot of scholarships out there, some more conventional than others. Last time, we discussed a scholarship for students interested in becoming part of the chicken industry, but even that scholarship is far from the weirdest. There are some scholarships out there that have unusual criteria, to say the least. It may be based on something totally out of your control, like your height or last name. It may be awarded on how much you like a card game, or to whomever comes up with the most creative way to use a household product. It may even be for students interested in… potatoes? No joke, these five scholarships are some of the weirder ones on our site. Are you weird enough to apply? [...]
