If I won this scholarship it would mean the world and more to me because I love putting others before myself and doing something genuine for the community out of altruism.

We live in a world where animal abuse exists and I cannot tolerate that. Animals have a voice too and they deserve the be treated with respect and care just as humans are. I applied for this scholarship because I believe that all animals deserve to be treated with importance just as a newborn baby in a human family would be. I was reading the comments below and I couldn't stop smiling. All of us together, standing up together to protest for animal rights will bring a huge change for the future.

I applied for this scholarship because I love animals and would love to be in a career that involves animals. Animals have always had a soft spot in my heart since I was a baby, I remember saying I wanted to be a veterinarian since I could talk. If I win this scholarship money that's one step closer to my goal of become a vet.

I applied for this scholarship because not only do I love animals, but their importance is just as important as any living creature on earth. The standards of animal welfare have dropped tremendously. Every year more then 22,000 animals are put up for adoption each year, which is horrible. I hope there to be a good future for our furry friends, so I hope to see a dramatic incline in the population of our animal welfare.

I'm applying for this scholarship because animals are very important to the environment and to humans. As I seen in society today, many get treated poorly and suffer due to animal cruelty. This is the many reasons, that I decided to become vegan. Helping animals has always been a huge passion in my life. However, animals don't have a voice that can be heard. Therefore, I would like to be the voice that should be heard from this animals.

I applied for this scholarship because I truly have a strong passion for animals and the protection of animals needs great improvement. In the times we live in now, animals get ill treatment and animals my mother saw as a child I no longer see as much if at all. "Cruelty free" on the bottle of products shouldn't even be an issue we shouldn't be testing on animals at all if we don't know the effects period. Though these loving creatures don't have a voice, I will stand up and speak for them and that is a promise.

This is a phenomenal scholarship opportunity. Animal abuse and criticize is a major problem, especially in today's generation. Animals bring happiness and compassion into people's hearts. For myself to have the passion for animals, I would love more than anything to do for God's creations. I would love to take this opportunity to spread animal awareness in the community and put an end to animal cruelty.

Jake C  on 2/15/2020 12:36:28 PM

This scholarship makes me happy because animals make me happy. Animals today are being mistreated and deserve better than what they are given. Animals bring to peoples lives and the hurt that animals face each day makes me very upset. I want to help spread the awareness of animal abuse.

Chloe C.  on 2/11/2020 10:22:17 PM

This is a great and easy scholarship opportunity and is something that many of us are passionate about.

Saiesh P  on 2/6/2020 7:29:36 AM

This is quite an interesting scholarship opportunity, given that only a minority of programs emphasize on a topic which concerns the welfare of animals. Good to see a diverse range of opportunities for me to hone my writing skills

Tyius J  on 2/5/2020 10:14:17 AM

i applied for this because i don't like the future that we currently have and that future is without animals. The fact that my kids wont be able to see the animals that i saw as a child hurts my heart and I want a better future for animals in general.

Syneca J  on 1/28/2020 12:27:57 AM

Since animals cannot physically be heard, they deserve to have the people who truly care about their well being, speak up and fight for their protection.

Rafid S.  on 1/6/2020 9:06:26 AM

Ever since I was young, all I wanted was to learn about animals and to this day I still study them. During my studies, I have seen countless records and videos of animals being abused, killed, murdered for no reason. This is something that needs to be addressed and told by the people. The animals may not have a voice but we can give them one by telling the people what wrong is coming upon them and help protect the animals.

Is community service required

Haywood Z  on 4/17/2019 10:53:13 AM

I applied for this scholarship because its something to do that I love, I love animals and I care for them so I was looking for scholarships that meets my interest and I had finally found one! I hope I receive such an award one day.

Harleen S  on 2/27/2019 12:35:57 PM

I applied for this scholarship because of my love for animals. Though they don't have a voice doesn't mean something can't be done to help animals. I am an against animal cruelty and believe that somehow we can help make the world a better place and help animals in any way or form.

cole c  on 2/17/2019 12:45:05 PM

we need to do something about this

Ally H  on 1/25/2019 12:09:15 PM

When you say a voice for animals, could you elaborate? Is this like a PETA deal or where I can't eat meat, or is this like a anti animal abuse thing?

COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Students with Disabilities

April 9, 2020

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, colleges and universities quickly transitioned from in-person instruction to online learning, inadvertently overlooking the needs of students with disabilities and "placing them on the backburner 'en masse.'" While eductors have been transferring two months' worth of lesson plans to digital format, disabled students have been left without adequate digital accessibility to succeed in the unprecedented and current remote learning environment.

Coronavirus Puts Higher Education in Perilous Position

April 7, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Higher education has long been seen as a pillar in American life, as an essential element of our economic system and society. But the coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the underlying health conditions of this cultural institution. Many colleges and universities have been struggling to meet the needs of students while also keeping themselves above water financially. While we hope that our lives will return to normal when this crisis is over, it is hard to imagine that higher education will ever be the same. [...]

Scholarship Deadlines Extended Due to COVID-19

April 2, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Just as schools have closed their doors due to coronavirus, charities and non-profit organizations have had to shutter down. While they might suspend board meetings, community fundraisers or award ceremonies, chances are they haven't shut down their scholarship offerings - in fact, many non-profits have extended their scholarship application windows from mid- or late March into April, May or even June. If you've been applying for scholarships this spring and missed out on some March or early April deadlines, check your account - you may find that some scholarships have had their due dates pushed back, giving you more time to submit an application.
