As a first generation American, I am excited to have the opportunity to get an education and want to take advantage of pursuing a college education, which has become a must in helping to stymie the recurring cycle of poverty in my community. The only way to do that is through better educating myself. I applied for this scholarship so I can go to college without worrying how I will pay for it and without taking a loan and further plunging my family and myself in debt. I trust I will be given consideration and the opportunity to make a dream of pursuing law reality.

I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to church and getting involved in activities that help me be more confident as a person. However, I need this scholarship to help pay my college career in order to pursue my career in the education field. This scholarship would not only help me, but it would also help my family.

Anything can be achieved if you work hard enough for it. That is if you have the money and resources to do the hard work. From what I have been told, I have an incredible work ethic and I find myself to be very ambitious but so many opportunities have been lost due to lack of finances to support my dream. With this scholarship, I would be able to continue my hard work and attend a university that would provide all the proper tools I would need to get to where I want to be as an actor.

Megan S  on 7/8/2017 5:02:38 PM

Every day, I see people around me suffering financially. I see friends having trouble sustaining jobs, attending classes, and paying off tuition/student loans. I see families struggling to make ends meet after their breadwinners are hospitalized or have passed away. I see elders working past the age of retirement, not because they want to but because they can't. My name is Megan Suico and I attend Christian Brothers University in Tennessee. I study Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. I plan to use what I've learned to reach out to the middle class about financial education. To help them evaluate their situations and provide solutions that will protect their families. The Financial Crisis doesn't get the attention it needs and I plan to change that.

I don't have the funds to attend my university of choice, so any help is fantastic. I am an aspiring actor and want to find a way of acting for a career. I want to change the world not by doing anything huge or big that affects the whole world in a giant way. I want to change the world for individuals. I want to be an actor who shows people that someone like me could become an actor and make it in the world. I want to change the world and make it a better place, but more importantly to me, I want to change people's worlds and give them hope like I was given by others.

Katharina J  on 1/26/2017 10:46:25 PM

Hello my name is Katharina Jackson. I am currently 17 and will hopefully be at Nicholls State in Louisiana. My idea for changing the world is helping those who need it the most. In this day and age people cant afford or keep up with the cost of medicine and live in horrible conditions in third world countries and even in our own. I plan to go for my bachelors degree in nursing and go to those countries and help the children who are in need for clean water, food, and also medicine to defeat the popular diseases in those areas. If i happen to win, i plan to use the money to pay for tuition, boarding, and also the most important part, books! With this money i will be able to become the first college bound child in my family and prove to them and you, through hard work, that this will not be a waste. I would be very ecstatic to have won this award but i would also be happy if someone else won! Thank you for giving us this opportunity.

Katelyn R  on 1/13/2017 12:30:22 PM

Hi my name is Katelyn Rivenbark. I am a 18 year old currently going to an early college about to graduate this spring with not just a high school diploma but also a degree in an associates of arts. My goal is to transfer to a four year school (hopefully UNCSA (the school of arts in of North Carolina)) and follow my passion in theatre. I know, theatre who cares about? Well to be quite frank a lot of people and my goal is to be so well rounded in all the fields of theatre from acting, to costume/set design, directing/producing, to even having my own theatre company and put on shows that help make audiences think and inspire others to help fix problems that are happening in not only today but in the future. Changing the world sometimes starts with being the inspiration for somebody and that’s what I want to be. I want to be the inspiration for future generations. I want to make a huge impact in my life and in the lives of other just as actress Audrey Hepburn made and how Lin-Manuel Miranda (creator of Broadway musicals In the Heights and Hamilton). I would be so honored and blessed if I won Dr. Pepper’s Tuition Giveaway. Thank you.

Jacob S  on 12/18/2016 8:36:05 PM

I am so excited at this opportunity to tell Dr. Pepper and the world, how I plan to make a difference and change the world following my Bachelors degree. I am Jacob Sinclair-Steeves and I just received my acceptance letter to attend my first choice University. September of 2017, I will be enrolled at the University of Massachusetts Boston in the Nursing program and I can’t wait! Upon graduating, with my nursing degree, I hope to travel the United States and the world making a difference through educating others less fortunate than myself and in remote areas with simple ways to prevent the spread of disease and infection. Knowledge is the best tool we have to help those less fortunate than ourselves, to improve their lives. I want to share the knowledge I gain at the University of Massachusetts Boston with others and changing lives! I would like to connect with my genetic ancestry and provide nursing services on an American Indian reservation. Many of those living on American Indian reservations are living at or very much below the poverty level and lack the knowledge, as well as resources to live healthy lives. Lastly, I would like to travel to under developed countries that lack resources and knowledge to live healthy lives, as a result of lacking clean living conditions, clean drinking water, as well as many other important resources. Hopefully one day, I can participate in an organization, such as Operation Smile, being one of the team members crucial in giving back a child their beautiful smile. I plan to use the money received for tuition, books, and housing so that I may obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve my goals, ultimately sharing that knowledge gained in my four year journey, to become the best nurse I can be, by bestowing others with knowledge, who are less fortunate, to change their lives.

Hey guys! My name is Jennifer Haegele. I am applying for this scholarship because I've been seeing it on the Dr. Pepper cans for quite sometime now.

At first I was doing good paying for school and keeping my grades up but my job begin expecting more from me and I needed to give my job all that I could because I need the money. I thought I could do both, a full time job and going to school full time but it is becoming very difficult for me. I've noticed it in my grades. I am hoping with this scholarship I can start working part time and continue going to school full time.

I always wondered what one person could possibly do about problems related to the environment, government, Big Food, etc.. After realizing I had a passion for children, I've wanted to create an alternative education school that equipped the next generation to effectively take on the problems of the world through SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) and experiential learning. Please help fund my journey towards a better America, every dollar put towards me is a dollar towards my school.

Hello my name is Alexis . I just graduated high school and my goal is to become a Neonatal Nurse. I had always had a connections to babies, will always be my passion, and always wanted to make a difference. During my senior year I found out I was pregnant and never knew how difficult it would of been. It was the most stressful and tiring things I could of ever done but I did it. My son was born early, so he was in the NICU. That was the most hardest days of my life. There was a day that went by I didn't cry. My son help me push through high school and graduate. He is my inspiration and I am great full to have seen someone so little be so strong, he is my hero, my everything. Being in a mothers foots steps and seeing how it felt being in the opposite shoes still made me want to go to that field. I believe by every smile it can make an impact on a life. And I want to change the world by showing parents that there's hope for tomorrow, that it will always be hard but being strong can help them fight too. I want to seethe parents face when their children can go home with them. I want to change a families life some day just like those nurses and doctors did, just like how my son changed my life.

Danielle J  on 7/13/2016 12:38:26 AM

Hello my name is Danielle Jennings one of my goals is to complete 6 years of Psychology, so i can become a marriage and family therapist. Me taking psychology courses will help the world in so many ways! See I live in the state of Illinois, who is going through a money crisis sadly they have chosen to shut down psych-wards, and many other hospitals to help several mentally sick patients. Leaving hundreds of people walking the streets ill and hurt. Me becoming a psychologist will not only help our communities it will help make our world feel a little more safe; knowing not so many people are on the street acting out just, because they are confused, or doesn't have their medication. The only problem is in order to complete my successful journey with all of my heart and knowledge i will need money just to attend a college/university. Every little bit counts, and if you pick me to be the winner of the Dr.Pepper tuition giveaway it will be much appreciated. This is my goal, and how it will make our world better a step at a time.

My goal is to go into stem cell research? This research will change the world and I may not be the single person that causes it to happen. But if I can contribute to the defeat of cancer or find that key that unlocks the possibility of finding the cure then I helped the world become a better place. I want to be a part of that and hope to make the cure happen. I am currently going to Tulsa Community College and am trying to decide where to attend after graduation from TCC.

hunter w  on 7/4/2016 11:11:48 AM

My name is Hunter Wollenzien and I will be a freshman at Waukesha County Technical Collage this fall. I have always had crazy ideas for house designs and I am going into carpentry to be a rough carpenter. My parents have taught me that if I put my mind into it, I should also put my heart into it. Ever since I was young I have always wanted to help other, first by nurse, then by cook and now I have set my heart as a rough carpenter. I have found the I prefer to work with my hands instead of computer, I also found I prefer working with wood instead of metal.

Kasie S  on 6/28/2016 6:26:55 PM

My name is Kasie Sands and I will be a freshman at East Carolina University this fall. All my life I have lived and worked on farms; whether the farm I work on be with livestock or Tobacco in North Carolina my family and I worked hard at both. I will be the first in my family to attend a university. My parents raised me to know that I should always help others and if there is an opportunity to learn, I should take it. I combine both of these lessons from my parents learning about health care. In June of 2015, I was nominated and chosen as a delegate for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders just before volunteering at the local hospital's Physical Therapy unit. Shortly before that adventure I had attended a diversity camp (Catalyst Conference) at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a forensic science camp at Appalachian State University. These experiences have all left great impacts on me, mutually a craving for more knowledge. My family -as most rural families- do not have the money to always fund my well-rounded enrichment. Rural families do not always have the money to get medical attention. My One of a Kind goal is to one day open up a private practice in my rural community in which I would provide the best medical attention for some of the hardest working people there are like they deserve.

Katelyn G  on 5/26/2016 3:43:26 PM

My name is Katelyn Green I am currently a high school senior, during my time in high school I have two jobs working for McDonald's and babysitting. I also joined hospice two years ago and it has been a great community service to get to know new people. I am the first on my mother's side to attend an university and I chosen to attend California Baptist University in the fall. I have two sisters who are also attend in college and they go to RCC in Riverside. Once I graduate from high school and attend college I want to get my master's degree in Kinesiology and do volunteer work for an amazing program in Arizona. My entire life I watched my mom take care of us and do everything in her power to make us proud and live happy lives. Getting this scholarship will help me a lot to get where my dream and goal wants to carry me and I know it wont just help me out but it will help out my family.

Raven C  on 5/11/2016 5:10:35 PM

My name is Raven Chavez I am currently a high school senior, during my high school career I was in soccer all four years; I also did Toss No Mass for three years which is working with the sheriffs of Las Cruces to pick up trash for four hours one weekend.

Tyler C  on 4/2/2016 1:00:19 PM

My name is Tyler Combs and I did apply for this scholarship. My parents have been supportive all my life always encouraging me to achieve my goals; that was easy when I was just a kid but now that i'm a highschool senior, reality has been hitting me hard. I plan on attending Iowa State University and majoring in pre-medicine to hopefully live out my dream of being a pediatrician. Im a multi-sport varsity athlete in cross country, track and baseball; so I do know the meaning of working hard to be able to achieve what I want to achieve. I have three other younger siblings that look up to me as a role model; and we are supported by only our mother who is a teacher. Times are tough and i'm not gonna lie, sometimes I take for granted of all the things my parents do to support me. This senior year has been stressful in so many ways such as competing in sports, doing schoolwork, and now this year I had to add applying to scholarships on top of that. It can be stressful and sometimes I just feel like I want to give up; but I do want to make my parents proud and make their lives easier, because all my life they've been doing their best to support me. Its time that I start showing my appreciation for that and giving back; so with this scholarship I plan on doing my best to accomplish my goal and to make my family proud, and whether it be the 100,000 dollars or the 5,000 dollars it would definitely help out in a huge way.

Jacquelyn T  on 3/4/2016 3:23:21 PM

I'm trying to go to school to obtain my nutrition degree. I've always had a penchant for helping people, and guiding them to a much healthier life fits right on into the category. I hope you will consider my application, as well as other students who are truly struggling to get the means to go to school. Even if I'm not one of the big winners, just being voted for the leadership-board prize and winning the $5,000 is enough for me.

sarah L  on 3/3/2016 2:06:42 PM

How do I apply for this scholarship

Silvano W  on 2/22/2016 1:14:38 PM

Hi, My name is Silvano Whiteside and let me tell you a story. The year was 1996 and a baby was being born 3 months earlier then expected. This baby weighed 3 pounds, didn't have enough blood, and couldn't digest food on top of all that. The doctor's told the parents that the baby had little to no chance to survive and that it could only happen with a miracle. That miracle came through the tender love and care of what people call the NICU nurses. These brave men and women worked day and night to make sure this baby had fighting chance and in the end they proved that just because you have a phd doesn't make you always correct. So ya that baby was me and for as long as I can remember I've wanted to give back to the people that saved me by being those people. College is expensive and this scholarship would not only help my dreams come true but would also serve as a way to help save lives further down the road.

Devetta M  on 2/17/2016 8:10:32 PM

Elizabeth c  on 2/15/2016 1:46:28 PM

I've recently got accepted to Quinnipiac University & very excited about that accomplishment. This is shocking to me because I'm an I.E.P student that has dyslexia and thought i could never concur this goal. With that being said.. my parents and I are going to have a very hard time trying to pay for this college that I'm attending this fall. Im trying to major in business and hopefully start my own business up when i get older. Thank you again I hope you consider me for this scholarship.

Sean H  on 2/15/2016 12:09:01 PM

I was born with no arms or legs and my only means of learning is through sign language because I'm deaf and have cancer. I hope i can at least get this scholarship to push me through me last years

I am a junior in the Speech and Language Pathology Major and want to do what I can to get my degree and master degree. I am devoted to having a career that will allow me to help others improve their speech and become self confident indivduals.

I'm a Pepper!

Nadia Elaine C  on 1/26/2016 1:29:19 PM

I am trying to apply for the scholarship but don't know where to go to apply for it . It does not give me an option. The reason for me applying for scholarship is I come from a middle class family my parents both work and don't make to much money but I don't qualify for financial aid so I am seeking scholarships so that I can go to college and help my parents out and so that they don't have to worry about one more bill to pay. Please let me know where I can go to apply for this scholarship.

Lauren M  on 1/22/2016 11:26:49 PM

The deadline for this scholarship says Oct 19th, 2016. When following the link to the scholarship, I discovered that entries for this scholarship are now closed. I thought this might have been something that just hadn't been updated for this years' giveaway, but some of the "Stories" available to vote on were posted as few as 4 days ago. This sounds funny...

I hope that my future College has Dr. Pepper vending machines near my dorm. Thank you people of Dr. Pepper for your time.
