I am here to apply to hopefully win the scholarship I have applied to many but not won any I live with my mom. My parents divorced when I was in the six grade I am now in the 12th grade I will graduate and my father has not been in my life for about two years. He wants nothing to do with me he made his life with a new wife and four kids and abandoned me and my other 2 siblings. This would be an amazing opportunity to get this money to pay for college. I want to become a doctor but first want to get my registered nurse degree before anything this would be an amazing beginning.

I am back in school at the age of 42 to become a licensed massage therapist. I lost my sister to suicide in 2008. Life just has not been the same. I recently took custody of my nephew. I also have taken in my other nephew who is on a recovery path from addiction.

I applied for this scholarship because my mom's suicide changed my life a lot and was the biggest thing to ever happen to me.

I am majoring in Elementary Education, and I lost my father January 21, 2017 to suicide. I’ve always wanted to be able to fight for my chance at success. Kids who have had this happen tend to feel like they have to give up because of their parents decisions. This scholarship would help me with my dreams of being a mentor and teacher to younger kids.

I am majoring in Biology at Wayne State, I recently lost my father to suicide on Father’s Day 2020. Before I never really had a motivation for school but he always wanted me to succeed and become a dentist. After his passing I pushed myself harder to reach this goal. However it is hard to finish school without the financial help I had before.

I am majoring in Health and Human Services at Rogue Community College. I am currently going to be entering in to the last term of my first year of school. At 16 years old I lost my father to suicide. I dropped out of school and now 18 years later I am just now able to manage life for the first time.

My name is Jamilia Kamay Williams and I am originally from the busy city of Boston. I have always surrounded myself with my art and willingness to learn new things. As a child, I was always on the high honors list and played on the softball team at my school. I also became cheer captain while I was in the 5th grade, and fell in love with it. However, I became a victim of racial bullying and had been verbally abused because of my hair and background. I have moved from 2 schools and sadly lived out my middle school experience at home. My mother has always been my supporter. After my father committed suicide in 2012, she has been trying her hardest to push me to become whatever I want to be. I decided after that, I will graduate and become a happy student that wanted to get involved and help others. And I don't plan on changing my mind.

I am a non traditional student in a trade school. I’m older and learning to become a pilot. The passing, by self inflicted wound, of my brother is what sparked my renewed sense of life and started me on this new path. Can I still apply even though I am older and and in a trade school?

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. [...]
