A scholarship can make a big difference in my life education. The money from a scholarship helps me by allowing me to be more selective in how I spend my free time. I’ll be able to maximize the college experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities and internships. I believe I deserve this scholarship because it will help me achieve my long-term goals. By furthering my education in biology, I can work towards my career goals in the medical field. I aim to make a difference in my community, and this scholarship will absolutely be the difference-maker when it comes to affording the education I need to do that.
