My name is Chania Miller. I am a senior at Henderson Collegiate located in Henderson North Carolina. I am a Saxophone player and I've been learning for almost 6 years and also teaching myself how to play percussion, specifically the drums. I chose band in the 6th grade because I knew I wanted to learn how to play different instruments like the trumpet, piano, guitar etc. and hopefully be in a band, be a music performer, or do music production. I fell in love with music when I was only just 7 years old and it was introduced to me through my family. Throughout the years they would teach me and expose me to different genres of music like Latin, R&B, hip hop, rock, pop, and reggae. As my major, for when I attend the college of my choice, I want it to be music production. As my minor, I want it to be engineering technology. Hopefully in the future, I want my career to be a successful music producer and to be successful in engineering technology so I can change the world and help or motivate others who want to do the same as me.

My name is George B. Rivers III. I am a senior at Leonardtown High School located in Leonardtown, Maryland. I am a proud varsity football player, saxophone player, and engineering student. One of my proudest moments in high school was getting a letter in the mail my sophomore year informing me that I was accepted into the engineering program at my school. I desire to become a civil engineer. I developed an idea to help keep athletes from getting heat strokes. My invention won the state and national Skills USA competition. My plan is to major in civil engineering when I go to college next year. I have a lot of ideas to help bring change to the future.

I'm a student from Texas and have competed two times for UIL calculator state champions .I applied for this scholarship because I want to be able to afford the education that my parents couldn't receive. I hope that you have it in your heart to help me set my future.

last year (senior year) before my undergraduate year of college, I was scrolling through random scholarships. I have always had a higher sense of intuition then a lot of my peers, but as many others, the struggles of life, which i had many, seemed to overpower my will to actually put my abilities into practice. I often start a work and immediately doubt myself. However, this scholarship motivated me to let go of the fear and do my best. Winning the scholarship would be nice but positive affirmation of finally pursuing my dreams would be rewarding enough.

Bilal mustafai  on 8/21/2020 4:23:59 AM

I'm about to apply to this scholarship because I recognize how far I've come- from an immigrant who couldn't operate a mere computer's mouse to building circuits. Its a good oportunity and I'd tell anyone who sees it to give it a try it will send you placess.

Yamileth H.  on 8/11/2020 4:44:10 PM

A scholarships one motivation isn't about the money, its about the effort and motivation to thrive more in life. We live in a world where we don't know what to expect the next minute that passes by, but one thing we know is there is no time to waste. This scholarship will enable me to give back to my family for pushing me on in life even when I found that my life has no happy ending. I am a graduate of the class of 2020 from High School of Telecommunications Arts and Technology. My goal begins with seeing smiles from my parents, their ecstatic look that I am going to succeed no matter how tough life gets. I am doing this for my family, and for myself. Winning a scholarship like Davidson Fellow Scholarship would make me full of content and delighted that I was able to get this amazing award.

I am applying for this scholarship for the sense of independence I’m submitting myself to in order to help my parents in sending me to school. I am a rising senior in High School who was been singing all of my life been in my High school chorus for almost 4 years now and middle school for 3. Singing is my biggest passion along with music and to be able to pursue what I love in college would be a dream come true. It’s a shame that in society today it cost so much in order to do what you love and to contribute something to the world but if applying for this scholarship will help me and my parents achieve that then I see no reason why not to. Thank you for offering this opportunity to students everywhere.

Andrena Orosco  on 7/8/2020 1:38:20 PM

I am a high school senior i recently graduated at Fontana High School in Fontana California. The reason why I'm applying for his scholarship is because i want to be able to cover the cost of the rest of my tuition for college and for a dorm as well i will be living a hour n 30 minutes away from my home and it will be a tiring drive back and fourth on a daily basis. I am also running of a Athletic Scholarship for Softball at University of Antelope Valley so driving back n fourth wouldn't be good for my health and it would also drain big amounts of gas money. I hope you take my comment into consideration and chose me to receive this amount of money to help me and my family out and change my future to something good. Have a nice day and a great rest of your evening.GOODLUCK!! :)

Schildonald J.  on 5/24/2020 5:53:40 PM

I am a high school senior at Brockton High School, who will be graduating in 5 days. I am applying for this scholarship because I am going to attend the University of Massachusetts Boston in the upcoming fall for a BS in engineering. I want to help my parents as much as possible by lowering the cost to attend. For my four years of high school, I have been a part of NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) who I compete in engineering competitions all around the US. I was also a part of YIS (Young Investors Society). This is where we compete and pitch stocks to different investors. I actually won states (Massachusetts) for my stock named Qualcomm and went to nationals. Unfortunately, I didn't WIN, I want to continue to accomplish many things in college with this scholorship.

Isabella C  on 5/11/2020 8:49:17 PM

I would like to apply for this scholarship not only to pay for my college admission but to give back to my community. My community got me to where I am today in my music journey, and I would like to pay them back for the support that they have given me for the past couple of years. I would also like to succeed in the career of my choice of being a high school band director. I want the next generation of musicians to learn and love any piece of music given to them and to have students experience things that other students at other schools possibly can't.

Ramon P  on 4/28/2020 3:56:54 PM

I truly think that this scholarship is a blessing in its own right, and I applied to it solely for the reason that my family has eight mouths to feed and will not be able to pay for me to go to college. This scholarship is a perfect way to encourage youth to apply for college and achieve their dreams to impact the community around them for the better. I personally recommend everyone who is applicable for this scholarship to apply because as the future we must capitalize on the opportunities in front of us and take in any form of help we can because every little penny counts.

Vinayak Paliwal  on 4/10/2020 12:08:45 AM

I am always enthusiastic to research and works on Philosophy and folk literature in Indian culture. That make our culture more substantial to fight with the capitalist ideology, which attack on my indigenous culture and make it more compress rather than make it more diverse and develop. But due to harsh economic situation i even can't afford my college fee. I really really want to work on my folk culture and its literature and for more research on it i really need money that can sustain for next few year. I will be most thankful if this scholarship help me in my ambition.

October 23, 2020

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

ACT, Inc., the college admissions testing company, has agreed to pay out $16 million to 65,728 California students with disabilities to settle a class-action lawsuit. The class-action federal lawsuit filed in California in 2018 alleged that ACT, Inc. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and California's Unruh Civil Rights Act by disclosing test-takers' disability status to colleges and scholarship organizations on score reports, and denied certain examinees with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in its Educational Opportunity Service.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. 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? [...]
