I hope I've a realistic chance of procuring this scholarship! I was an Honors Program student at a 2 year school, perfect 4.0/Dean's List, Ed of paper, chosen for the Harvard UN Debate but my then-husband insisted I leave school to run his business. Now I want to achieve my dreams of a successful medical career but financial constraints limit me immensely. If I had this scholarship I could follow my lifelong dreams at last and contribute the few gifts I've been blessed with and help others. I'm praying!

I would love the opportunity to enroll in a program that will help me get my education off the ground. I am trying to get a certification as an Esthetician and the funded will help with my shortfall of education assistance. I am a grandparent of twins helping my single parent daughter. I relocated to Texas from Las Vegas so I need some kind of career going to help our family. 2020 has been rough for our premature twins born during the COVID crisis. So any help will get me off to a great start. Thank you

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
