Hello,My name is Nada Darwish and i am a senior at Maryvale High School. This is the first scholarship that I am ever applying for and it and stood out to me the most because I believe young woman are really important in our society to show all woman that we also have to be successful and lead a life to be a role model to others. It is important for us girls and woman to stick together. We have to have a big voice and the first step is studying what you love and be good at it. Thank you for reading my statement.

My name is McKenzie Guillory and I am a senior at Eunice High School. I am the oldest of five and I am working very hard to further my education after high school. I am currently enrolled in a dual-enrollment program through LSUE and plan to transfer to Xavier University-New Orleans to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. My inspiration of becoming a nurse comes from seeing my mother work her way from being a certified nursing assistant at the age of 20 yrs then continuing her education and becoming an LPN at the age of 22 yrs. She is currently enrolled in her third semester of the Associates of Nursing Program at LSUE at the age of 34 yrs and will complete her schooling in May 2021. She has taught me that no matter what obstacle is thrown in my way, there's always a way around it to better myself especially in gaining a higher education. I have maintained a g.p.a. of 3.8-4.0 throughout my schooling and continue to push for better. If I was awarded this scholarship it would be put towards furthering my education and would be greatly appreciated.

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. [...]
