My name is Christian Arroyo from Orlando, Florida and I want to acknowledge on how grateful I am to have the opportunity to submit this application for a possible scholarship to help enhance my academic achievements after I complete high school. Below you will find my post-high school educational and professional career goals. I was taught to be a very hardworking and determined son, student and player, and I challenge myself in all that I am willing to work for. I contribute leadership and dedication to the team, the school as well as within my family. My goal for college and professional career is to continue to perform academically, professionally as well as athletically. My confidence and strive to do the best for my own future is demonstrated in all three performances. I attend Faith Christian Academy in Orlando FL. I hold a 4.2 GPA. This past summer I was honored to be inducted into the National Society of High School Scholars. It is an achievement that I am truly proud of. I am also member of the National Honors Society within the School. My graduation year is 2020 and until then I plan on joining Student Council as a representative for the class of 2020. Academics are a very essential part of my family upbringing as well as the driving force that allows me to have a high expectation in attending one of the most prestige universities in the country. My ultimate goal after High School is to attend Stanford University. My professional goals I have planned out for my future is to achieve a degree in Business Administration while at the same time pursuing my dream of becoming a professional baseball player. Being part of Faith Christian Academy has developed leadership skills that will help carry me to the next level in life. My parents taught me that I represent them outside the home and FCA has taught me the same. Performance skills, discipline and professionalism in and out of my home and the school is mandatory; I make sure my characte

I am a Senior at Angleton High School with a passion for understanding and improving automobiles, aircraft, and watercraft. To expand my knowledge and abilities, I plan to attend a University after I graduate High School. The only conflict in this endeavor is my financial circumstances. However, if I were awarded the scholarship you are offering, it would enable me to pursue my dream and accomplish my goals. During my Junior year, I founded an organization at my High School called Facta-Non-Verba which is latin for “Actions not words.” The organization was started for the purpose of showing appreciation and offering support services to veterans. The organization is nationally-recognized and schools from several states have chartered chapters of their own. Between the Facta-Non-Verba organization at Angleton High School and actively participating in Boy Scouts, I have accumulated a large number of service hours and made a positive impact on our community. Through becoming an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, this process has taught me to value the quality of character and the importance of service to others. I make every effort to live by the Scout oath and law on a daily basis. I also try to demonstrate leadership in doing a good turn daily and influence my peers to do the same. Thank you for your consideration of my application and I sincerely appreciate your generous gift of this scholarship whether I personally benefit directly from it or not.

Gabriella C  on 1/22/2018 9:06:41 AM

Hello, my name is Gabriella C. and I am applying for scholarships to provide a future for myself and my future family. I am the oldest of six. My dad suffered an injury years ago, was off of work for a few years, went back to college, and just recently got a job at the hospital. I am intending on taking STEM and ACE college credits through my high school next year. Scholarships would be a lifesaver for me because money is very tight at home and I fear that without scholarships, I will not be able to go to college and become a physicians assistant. Going to college and achieving this dream will allow me to help my family.

I am a sophomore in college at Mount Vernon Nazarene University majoring in Biology Pre-medical. I currently have a 3.0 GPA and continuing to strive to reach my goals of becoming a successful doctor. I am currently paying for my tuition all on my own, loan free and debt free. In order to pay for school I have currently started my own photography business in order to pay for my schooling. If I was to receive this scholarship it would be a huge blessing to be able to continue attending school debt free and make my dreams come true. Thank you for your consideration:)

I am an older man-51-who has taken a few classes at junior college at the Community College of Denver to figure out what I was interested in and I did well- I currently have a 3.75 GPA. Unfortunately, I had some serious family related health issues on the west coast with my mother an I had to drop a few classes after the drop date and I owe a bill of approximately $1200.00. I broke my leg , had a blood infection so I couldn't pay the bill off. Now I am back to being very healthy and focused on certain academic disciplines and this scholarship would be of tremendous help to pay the bill and jump-start back into college. Thank you Eric M.

After dropping out of college in 2011, I have learned a great deal about responsibility. I've had days where I didn't know where I was going to sleep, or what I was going to eat. I've worked full time in 4 different career fields just in hopes that something would fit. Now I've realized I will not be satisfied until I pursue a career in environmental science. I want to ensure a better planet for my neighbors and for generations to come. This scholarship will help me overcome the immense financial burden that comes with pursuing my dreams.

Im a senior at a trade school who is looking forward to reaching all my goals in life, but im also very nervous that it may not happen. I have only two people in my family who went to college and got a degree and want to follow there foot steps. My dream college is Lawrence Memorial/Regis college for a two year nursing program to become a medical esthetician. I have already received my cosmetology license and certificate for an ultrasonic. So far I feel like I accomplished so much at a young age and I want to go further in my education. Being a very independent person, I never liked taking money from my parents and been working since 15, this is why Im applying for scholarships as much as possible, hoping I can help out my family. Thank you for reviewing my comment and hope to hear from you soon!

With the money from the scholarship, I will pay to do this.

After college my plan is to become the first NFL Head Coach, and for my ability to do so, I have to start off helping coach college football, im doing this because I want to make a difference, and stand up to show young girls that we can do anything guys can do. Also to show that dont let discrimination get in the way of what you want to accomplish. I currently have a 3.0 gpa.

Dear JumpStart Scholarship team, my name is Michaela Gerhard and I am a junior at Derby High School in Derby, KS. I have a dream to go to college after I graduate to achieve a double major in Biology and Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry from a four year college.

I currently have a gpa of 3.95 and an accumulative gpa of 4.285. This scholarship would really help me out later on the road because I will be financially independent after I turn eighteen and all my college bills will be my responsibility. I am a hard worker and I plan to go to medical school to try and better the world the best I can.

Dear JumpStart Scholarship Team, Please let me introduce myself. I am in my junior year, majoring in Nursing at HPU. My GPA is a 3.7 last semester, as a full-time student and with clinicals. I have come from a single parent home and am on my own financially, because she had raised me on her own and because she rents, she can not co-sign for me. I work hard on my breaks but I do need financial assistance to survive. I'm working hard in my nursing program and it is paying off. I want to help the world one person at a time, as a nurse professionally, and plan to do what I can on my off hours after graduation to do so. Please consider me for this scholarship. I promise to repay this kindness to others in need once I have obtained my nursing degree in 2017 and start earning an income to do so. I hope to hear from you soon. Looking forward, Victoria Glassmaker

Kenny P  on 12/6/2015 11:43:38 PM

My dream is to get an associates at Middlesex then a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice at Umass Lowell, which will open many job opportunities such as parole officer, police officer, child services, and juvenile court counselor for me. I love dealing with people and by working with other people less fortunate than myself. It gives me an opportunity to give back to my community. I want to help them move towards a positive direction in life. I see a lot of kids growing up with no role model and it is sad to see because every kid deserves guidance. Without any role models in their lives, they would most likely be pulled towards a criminal lifestyle. If I could turn one kid’s life around before it is too late, I would love to do so. Receiving the scholarship award will help me reach my dream on getting a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

My name is Captain Cautious America, I am currently majoring Homeland Security and Investigations, I already have a plan to secure the nation against 12 curable infectious disease and stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. I plan to switch my major when I declare Homeland Secure, I will continue onto medical research. Medical research is my next goal because I intend to search for a cure for currently incurable problems to cut the battle short. My phrase is, " The first step to any cure, is stopping the spread of the disease, bacteria, parasite, or virus." When no new person is infected with HIV/AIDS, even if myself and no one else finds a cure, time will be a cure 50-70 years from the first year no one else is infected.

Samantha V  on 10/1/2015 12:43:21 PM

Hello, My name is Samantha V. I am a student who has made mistakes in the past and it led me to getting academically suspended for a year at my university. I took that as a wakening call and told myself I must do my absolute best to not only redeem myself from my mistakes, but to pursue a degree that I am proud of. During that suspension I went to community college and took course equivalency classes there and then took the necessary steps to get accepted back in my university. Of course I did come back, but my GPA was something to be ashamed about. But I pushed myself to get the best grades I could and understand the material that was being taught to me. Within a year, I managed to make the Dean's List at my university and bumped up my GPA enough for me to officially declare my double major. I can't sit here and say that I didn't cry when I began to realize how much my hard work has begun to pay off. But of course, with a double major, there comes more classes to take. I am seeking this scholarship in the hopes that it'll help me continue my education at the university that gave me a second chance in the hopes that I can graduate with a double-degree in the summer of 2018.

I recently transferred to a 4 year university from community college and am trying to pay for college on my own. I have worked really hard in school to be where I am today and really need help paying to attend school. I only recently began applying for scholarships because I didn't believe I could win any. I thank my dad for encouraging me not to sell myself short. Of the many of us applying for this scholarship, I would be grateful if I was picked. Thank you for the opportunity.

lindsey H  on 9/23/2015 3:25:22 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because, I am paying for college on my own. I work an on-campus job in our campus English Department, assisting the Chair. I also am apart of the Delta Gamma Fraternity, and work at Panda Express, whenever I visit home. All the money I make, goes into my savings. Yet, this is not enough to pay for my educational future. I strive to be a Biology, Pre-Med major and one day become, a OBGYN. I apply for this scholarship, so I can stress less and focus more on my educational future and working on my college resume, to be the best I can be in the medical field. I also apply for this scholarship, to stop having such a stressful weight on my parents shoulders.

Hello, I'm Debrina Carter I am a single mother of a 2 year old. I'm applying for this scholarship to help pay for my college. times get hard and with the holidays coming up paying for college in the Spring almost seems impossible at the moment. I just want to give my son the life he deserves and the only way I feel I can do that is by attending college. He loves to help me do homework (get my papers and throw them everywhere).

Hi my name is Anthony McClendon I am 30 years old from Detroit, MI my education means so much to me and my family even my other family members who are not here on this earth anymore. When I was little I always wanted to become successful I was in special education and I always had road blocks ahead of me, that I have overcame I was always told you will never make it your not smart enough so I have prove them wrong by hard work and dedication and with the help of my lord and savior Jesus Christ and my mother who made so many sacrifice for me . My grandma just passed away from bone cancer and she always pushed me to be the best in my career with my education I am also doing this by being a good role model and example for my kids. That's the reason I need this scholarship so bad because I am determined I am doing this for me and my family .

Fabiola R  on 9/21/2015 8:25:18 PM

I realize that there are many applicants who want this award and each and every one of them have a great reason why they want it. I have always been dependent on my parents, and I am thankful for all they have done for me. For 19 years my parents, my family, friends, and teachers have guided me through the right path in life. They have taught me and I have learned that the important values and resources of life on earth should not be taken for granted. And that our duty is to respect everything and everyone, and to never forget the beauty and love this world gives us. I believe that education should be used as tool to find our calling, and I really hope that with the help of this award it will help me further my education and get me the chance to give back to the world and the ones I love. Thank you.

Emily E  on 9/20/2015 2:33:34 PM

Hello there. My name is Emily Evans. I will be 18 October 3rd. I have grown up my entire life with my mom being a single parent. She sacrifices so much for me and puts me first in everything she does. Money has always been tight for her and my dad walking out on her before I was born, not giving anything to help, and not caring to pay child support or anything has been hard on us. She has worked very hard to get us where we are today. We live with my grandparents and they all want to see me succeed, as well as any other parent or family member would want to see. I want to become a dental hygienist. Winning this scholarship would mean so much to me and I would be greatly appreciated for it. Thank you!

Receiving this scholarship would assist me in my first year of college and all of the financial stresses I may encounter. I plan to leave home and pursue a college degree in a different state than my own in order to receive the best possible education. This adds additional costs onto college tuition, so all scholarships are crucial in my choice of education.
