I grew up in Memphis, TN and I am currently attending Middle College High School in which I am enrolled in the dual enrollment program with Christian Brothers University.By the end of this year I will have obtained 24 college credit.

Hello, my name is Imani Thomas, I am a bisexual, African American High school senior. Growing up my family didn't have a lot, my mom grew up very different from the way I did and she wanted to give me the best life she could with what she had. I attend a mixed race high school, with multiple different races and ethnicities , however funding is low and often I feel I have to try hard to stand out among so many other students like me. I wasn't able to do a lot in high school, because I transferred in the middle of my sophomore year. I planned to do more for my community this year, however COVID-19 affected my plans drastically. With this being my last year of High School, I want to make sure I'm set for college without having to rely too much on my parents. I am very grateful for the opportunity to hopefully be considered for this scholarship, thank you!

Hi my name is Bryson Battle I am a rising senior in High school as an African American going to a predominantly white High school I always felt watched in a way, like people always there eyes on me but that just gave me more of a reason to stand out in a positive way. I was the first and only person to come out as gay in my in my student class which was hard but ultimately made me who I am today which is a smart, kind, hardworking, talented, individual who this scholarship would mean so much to. My parents have provided any and everything I’ve ever needed for the past 17 years and college is one of the most expensive but fulfilling things to come along in a young persons life so recovering this scholarship would mean so much to me and my family and help further my journey into the real world. Thank you for offering this opportunity to students like me and I hope you will consider me for the scholarship.

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? [...]

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. [...]
