I was diagnosed with JA at the age of 10 and have been living with daily pain.

Hello, My name is Lori Dauphin. Since i was a young girl i have suffered the unbearable consequences of living with Hidradentitis Suppurativa. I was placed on numerous treatment plans alongside starting a weekly dose of Humira through a painful shot at the age of 15. These medications have caused extreme weight gain, depression, and an overall change in mental state. Hour long phone calls on hold and thousands of dollars spent on treatments that can only help so much. Due to Covid-19 impacts, my single mother lost our healthcare insurance and her job. I have not been able to afford the treatment or to visit my doctor in several months . I am hoping to attend Texas Woman's Univertsity this fall and finally have somewhat of a normal college experience unlike my parents but unfortunately with my medical expenses alongside being a Cleft lip child and Club foot child, its seemingly a dream. I can only hope that I can help with this burden and put my mother at ease. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity ! The best way to contact me, Lori Dauphin, is through email (

Hello, my name is Kaylee Padilla and I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am currently a senior at La Cueva High School and plan on attending college next fall. I applied for this scholarship because last summer, I had four family members pass with one including my dad. My mom and I are financially unstable still from having to bury four family members and having the extra financial assistance who help my single household which would help me get through college. I was diagnosed with JRA when I was 3 years old. Growing up consisted of a lot of medical attention as well as medication which is not cheap. My mom has been my #1 supporter and has cared for my disease's needs for 15 years so by receiving this scholarship it would be an amazing blessing for both my mom and I. Thank you for your time, Kaylee Padilla (

I applied for this scholarship because I am a junior at Sam Houston State University and I am in need of extra financial assistance. I am transgender ftm and I have asthma, psoriasis, depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in fall August 2018 and had surgery in September to remove my thyroid, where the cancer was located. I would be extremely great full for this scholarship if I am awarded.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device. While the majority of students were able to meet this requirement, according to a study by EDUCASE, some students found themselves without a modern laptop that could run the most up-to-date browser, use RAM-heavy software or keep up even with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi. One university has announced a unique remedy for this technical situation. [...]

The Longest Wait List Ever? What to Expect

March 31, 2021

by Izzy Hall

When students hear back from colleges in the coming weeks, they may not get a firm acceptance or rejection, but rather get put on the wait list. Getting waitlisted is a normal part of the college admissions process, but some experts say that this year the wait list could turn into the longest it has ever been. A combination of the effects of the coronavirus on colleges, changes in application policies and an increase in applications at top colleges may contribute to a difficult wait list period. [...]
