I'm an incoming freshman at MSU, I'm majoring in Pre-Veterinary. I am soaked to apply to this scholarship because it's a fighting chance. I am hard-working yet it is very hard to find scholarships that fit me, I may not be the best test taker but I have the passion and strength to be good at everything else. If I receive this money I will use it in my first year of college so I won't have to worry much about money.

I am a 37 year old mother of 3, recently divorced. I can foresee my future, what is that you ask..Since I can remember I have always wanted to fix things, make things better. My love for fixing things began with animals. My father and I would always somehow find babies without their mother, or injured/ sick animals, we would set our alarms for the next 12 hours at every two hour intervals, just so we could meet in the kitchen to warm up milk and prepare the dropper with feeding. There was no reward, there was no thank you-for they could not talk. The joy/pride in which engulfed me when it was time to let them back into the wild is what I lived for. That one rush of bitter, sweetness, that last glimpse as it clears the hillside, that sense of fulfillment to know that I helped that survive and continue to live it's life; is priceless. As I turned into an adult, I knew I had a gift and it was to work with people. I am able to make people laugh, with ease, it comes naturally to me. Laughter heals the soul, this is true. Ultimately, I knew I was placed into the world to help fix. I attempted to get into a nursing school for 5 years. Went back to college had a 4.0 and was accepted into the National Honor society for collegian scholars-and yet was continuously turned down over and over again. That was a hard lesson to learn. Just could not make sense of it for the life of me, all of my ducks were in a row, I did everything by the book, but all I kept receiving in the mail every May was the packet of doom and denial. I eventually found myself in Dickson TN with a 6 month old and 4 year old where in short turn, my husband left us. I had no job, no money, nothing. Closest family was over 3 hours away. The one thing I did have was the LPN program I was accepted into approximately 8 months prior. I knew within my being we would be ok. I would be able to support us because I was about to begin my career- my passion. Over the next 7.5 years I had another child, another marriage,

I would be honored to receive this scholarship in order to pursue my career in Marine Biology and Veterinarian. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I want nothing more than to help the animals not everyone is willing to work with. I want to help rescue rehabilitate and return animals to their natural habitat. So selecting a double major has so far helped me to be able to study ocean animals and exotic land animals. As off current, I am a full time student finishing the second semester of my first year. This is my first time applying for a scholarship. With being a full time student I have a part time job on the weekends to pay for the essentials and for my books. I am pushing myself to finish school so I don't end that weekend job and can achieve my goals opening my own rescue facility and help any animal that crosses my path. Thank you for the opportunity to talk about my goal.

Kadesha W on 8/1/2020 10:07:27 PM
Being a Nurse has always been my dream. I remember playing Nurse with my parents at a very young age and wearing a scrub to my school's career day event. I am currently a teacher living and working in the US. I did not get a chance to pursue Nursing because, I was lacking the necessary requirements at the time when I decided to start University. Despite all this, I never lost track of what I am truly passionate about. I believe this is the reason for starting a career in Education instead. I enjoy being able to provide help to people, and as a Teacher I was still given the opportunity to help the Nation's children. I love my current job however, my passion lies in Nursing. I am not financially equipped at the moment to pay my way through a second degree. I believe your scholarship could help me achieve this dream of mine which would also in return help others. I appreciate this opportunity.

cassandra f on 5/26/2020 10:16:48 PM
I would like to receive this scholarship. I'm currently on workers compensation and financially I am ok, but it will help out so much more if I were to pay for school. I recently decided to go back to school, because I can't work. When will I ever get a chance like this again? I stopped going to school because I needed to help my family financially. Now that I can still receive money but still go to school is a blessing but its also difficult. It is difficult because I don't get the same pay as I was working. This will help pay for at least a little of my tuition but I will be so grateful because I can't come up with the money myself, and I can't rely on my family to help me pay.
Isabel A on 5/25/2020 3:53:52 AM
Amazing opportunity that I would cherish. It seems the scholarship application is closed until mid-August 2020. I will definitely be checking in again!

Dresa P on 5/3/2020 7:46:40 PM
I would love to receive this scholarship as a first-generation university student. Currently, I am in a one-parent household, and attending university to better my family and give back to my community is something I've always wanted. And attending university is a very hefty financial burden for my mother to bear, so receiving this scholarship would make attending university more affordable and more obtainable. Being given the opportunity to make a better life for me, my family and my community is something that I hope to complete and inspire others as well. I hope to be able to obtain a degree in archetitchure and help construct buildings for low-income families.
Ruben C on 4/28/2020 6:56:09 PM

Ariyana S. on 4/18/2020 2:06:39 AM
I have always wanted to study abroad in Spain for as long as I can remember. I love everything about the country. When it comes to the culture I become very enthusiastic because of how much fun everything looks. While in high school, I took all of the Spanish foreign language classes which were amazing and made me want to go to Spain even more. We were supposed to take a trip, but our trip was shot down by our Board of Education Committee because they don't like to approve many field trips. I come from a low income based family but I am not a first-generation college student. If I get this scholarship it will help me to be the first generation student that has been able to study abroad and also fulfill my dream of many years to go to Spain.
Anaria Kinard on 4/12/2020 2:14:43 AM

Tiffany C. on 4/7/2020 6:45:18 PM
It will be a privilege to receive this reward. Growing up I was not informed about scholarships and grants in high school. It was a basic learning experience that I learned on my own later in life. My mother current have 5 kids and 13 grandchildren. Winning this reward will help secure my financial dreams to have a career in the medical field and the 1st person in our entire family to graduate college. Due to several misguided for profit schools and information I was given when I was young I made some bad decision. I currently do not qualify for Fafsa student loans and have to find other financial assistant to help continue my education.
