Personally, I'm applying to this scholarship hoping to land every possible opportunity that I find. I was never one to grow up with financial issues, but it's always been a topic for me to have some sort of stress over. I'm a junior in high school who is very excited to get into the college I've been dreaming of getting accepted into. I have a little brother with Down Syndrome who I love and adore deeply. The Corona virus has been hard on our family because of this, which means I'm unable to get a job in order to protect him from coming in contact with the virus. Therefore, I am looking for every chance there is to help pay for my college funds. These scholarships can hopefully help me in the ways I'm searching for.

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. [...]
