Hello my name is Autumn, I'm a sophomore student with ADD. I'm currently taking online classes at Madison college this fall but plan transfer back to University of Wisconsin-Whitewater spring semester due to Covid-19. With a major in elementary education and a passion for teaching, I would like to become Reading Interventionist. I want to work hard towards reaching my goals so I can help others.

I am applying for this scholarship because I have a moderate hearing loss. I have been in college for 6 years now and I really want to graduate this next year. My hearing loss has made school very difficult my entire life even with hearing aids. The cost of college is so much and I would appreciate any money that could help me get my degree in psychology. I want to help others in my position in the future so that they can get resources in aiding their future.

I am applying for this scholarship to put my Cancer Survivor ship, Hearing Loss, ADHD, PTSD and Domestic Violence scars in many ways in the right area. I want to be a Physician Assistant and continue my work with The American Red Cross. I hope I can get a little help with my Vision as I want to open my own clinic someday to help the people like me who fell through the cracks in the community. I want to be a real blessing to my patients and my family as I use my Second Chance wisely.

I would also like to know how to register. I am a single Mother of one. I started going to college to obtain my Associate's Degree in Computer Applied Science for Graphic and Web Design when my life was completely turned around after being physically assaulted. I sustained a broken ankle in multiple places. I had plates, pins and screws placed in my ankle. I was on crutches, and in a wheelchair for months. I lost my range of motion and now my cartilage is non-existent. As a result of being on crutches long term I developed a skin condition which I recently had my 2nd surgery, in which I am still recovering. As a result of this condition I have developed fibromyalgia. With all of my health issues one after another I gave up going to school. It is sad because I only have 7 classes remaining. I work part time in the technical field teaching adults how to use computers. So I know exactly the career path I want and physically it’s one of the only jobs I can have now due to my inability to stand for long periods of time. I would love to finish my degree.

There is no link to this scholarship, where do I submit my essay?

I am applying for this scholarship because when I was fourteen year old I was diagnosed with (psc) primary sclerosis cholangitis. When I was twenty eight I received I liver transplant. i was within days of passing away. In fact its amazing that I am still alive. I learn to respect everything. Even life's little things such as sitting up in bed, eating, walking, and yes even working. I also, learned that life is to short to not due what you truly want to do. So with the help of this scholarship, I will be able to return to college and pursue my goal of becoming a surgical technician. And help people the way I have been. Thank you for the opportunity.

I am applying for this scholarship because I feel that it is a good fit for me. I believe in the value of continuing to learn in your life both through what you experience every day in your life and through a more formal education. I have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and a stroke. the stroke took me three years of hard fighting and much therapy to regain what the stroke took from me. I had to learn to walk again, talk, feed my self, dress myself, read, write and all the other skills of taking care of myself that many people take for granted. I value education, both informal from life and formal in a place of education. I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education and look to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Religion/Theology. This scholarship will see me on my way to completing what has been a dream of mine for most of my life.

On the flip side, tuition-free schools may require students to work alongside their studies or, for military academies, to enlist upon graduation. [...]
