As growing up, I seen lots of violence in my coummunity. A lot of innocent people getting killed for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I know how it feels losing a loved one. Innocents like this drew me closer and closer wanting to sulsel my dreams becoming a Crime Scence Investigator. This scholarship would help to reach my goals I set for myself.

Money for school has always been a challenge in the thought process and was wondering if their were any tips that i needed before beginning my first year in college.

I am an incoming freshman majoring in Operations Management. Growing up half of my adolescence with just a mother, life has always been a struggle for money. Being able to pay for necessities independently is so important to me to be able to build a future for myself and pursue potentially a masters/doctorate degree in order to be able to provide for myself in the long run.

My name is Aalyiah Butler and I am a rising senior at Tulane University. I am on a scholarship to attend this university and I do receive financial aid for my room and board but the prices will be raised this upcoming fall semester and I do not intend on taking out another loan. This scholarship would allow me to have money for books and groceries. Being awarded a scholarship would be an honor, honestly.

I am a 20 yr old, 2016, high school graduate, alone in the world, without my parents financial help, therefore I must work 50 plus hours a week to keep a roof over my head, and food on the table.. I live in a 27 ft, trailer I am still paying on monthly, that I am blessed to have. i have little time for school, but I enrolled in the Paul mitchell School in San antonio. I am super excited to get my career in cosmetology rolling, because the sooner I am able to finish school, the sooner I can start my own business, or work my way up to that.. I would greatly, and surely appreciate any help, or assistance that could be granted to me on my life's journey, YOU all, and hard work and determination from myself, will be the reason my journey will be a success. sincerely, Miranda Blue Hernandez.

After researching scholarships, I found this one! I immediately wanted to apply. I come from a family of six, and my twin and I are the youngest. I've been accepted to UTA and I plan to graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Any financial help would put me one step closer to achieving my dreams. I am grateful to even be considered for this wonderful scholarship.

I am a Senior in High School and I am struggling to even get accepted to a college. I am raised by a single parent which is my father. He goes to work early in the morning and comes home late in the evening and does extra hours on the weekend to support him and I. Getting a scholarship will not only help my family and I financially but it will be helping me take more steps to achieving my dream job.

Getting this scholarship will really help my family and I out and will save us money. I look forward to being a pediatric nurse practitioner in the future and I've already started experiencing what it's like in a doctor's office and any health care workplace.

Allison H.  on 2/27/2018 7:52:24 PM

I want to be a writer, and write about the taboos of sexual abuse in families. Unfortunately, I know too much first-hand. I was accepted into an MFA program, but could barely afford my undergrad, despite working full-time and living on my own. Now, the thought of graduate textbook costs, fees, etc., is daunting. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Jessica.S  on 2/26/2018 4:31:13 PM

I am a high school senior in a children's home. I will be the first in my family to go to college, and I am my brother and sister's role model and the only family they have to look up to. I would love the chance to receive this scholarship to make further positive steps in my life .

Shereen W  on 2/16/2018 12:45:49 AM

I am a junior in high school looking for ways to help further my educations without putting financial pressure on my parents. My parents work day and night, and ever since my mom's health has been deteriorating, she hasn't been able to rest properly due to my highly demanding extracurricular classes. I am highly-accomplished in art but pursuing that path is extremely expensive. I would appreciate the help I can get to help me pursue my passion and dream.

Aracely M  on 2/13/2018 7:25:39 PM

I am currently a junior in high school who is signing up for scholarships. It's been a struggle as a student who has crohn's disease for the past four years. My only dream is to attend college and make something out of my life. I have a father works day and night because my mother is a proud immigrant living in the U.S. Ever since i mentioned to them about college, we began investigating and college is sounding expensive and I need all the help in order to reach my one life goal

karra d  on 2/13/2018 1:56:16 PM

Is this scholarship just for Kansas occupants? Can I apply if I'm in Maryland?

Angie L  on 2/9/2018 3:44:56 PM

This scholarship would really help me out with my school expenses. I am in my second year of college for my associates in business administration. I have been a part time student, I am already in financial debt but I'm so close to the end that if I had some assistance with my school expenses maybe I can attend school full time and receive my degree sooner.

Georgia S  on 2/9/2018 2:11:03 PM

Who I am, is what I've built myself into. I am more than a number, I am Georgia. Growing up in the foster care system was never easy. I have survived through terrible situations and hostile environments. My main focus has always been to not only survive but survive with quality of life. I want more for my life and through seeking a higher education I am determined to fulfill my dream. I am an 18 year old female, who has just recently aged out of the foster care system. I manage to work two part time jobs and continue my high school education. I am completely on my own. I would absolutely appreciate the opportunity to gain a scholarship to help further my education.

Christie G  on 2/9/2018 12:26:20 PM

I would love to receive this scholarship because it could possibly help me purchase textbooks and pay exam fees. I would also appreciate this scholarship because when I start college and begin working part-time the money that I will be making from my job will go towards gas and bills. So this scholarship could potentially help me so much, and I believe that just out of the kindness of your heart that this scholarship worth one-thousand dollars could possibly be given to me.

jada w  on 2/8/2018 12:49:30 PM

zoey k  on 1/25/2018 8:54:30 PM

I applied because I will need financial help for text books, exam fees, conferences, etc. I am from a low income household and any extra financial aid will help immensely. I am from a small rural town and will be going to college in a large city and am very excited for the new adventure, if only money was not such an issue.

Cassandra W  on 1/19/2018 1:53:47 PM

wilnet bonz j  on 12/18/2017 9:05:05 PM

I have applied for some these scholarships a couple of years ago that were 1 or 2 of these scolarships. Recently I think scholarships help some people reduce their educational loan amounts to pay after they finish their education. Scholarships help some people achieve their education and some scholarships give both men and women adult careers to provide for themselves.

Jennifer A  on 4/27/2017 10:41:20 PM

I enrolled into college as an nontraditional student. This has been the most challenging, but rewarding few months of my life. Unfortunately, the school I go to is the only school in my area that has an ultrasound program, and its at a private school. It is so expensive. I got federal aide, but not near enough to help, and I am extremely low income. The only way I could get a loan, was to get it through my school, and the day I started, I have already had to start paying on my student loans. I work a nanny job, and work through work study, and am still barely getting by. This would help me so much!

Research indicates that college students are expected to vote in record numbers in today's midterm election, in stark contrast to the nation's lowest youth turnout and voter registration in 2014. While forty percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they will "definitely vote" in the midterm elections, "doesn't mean they'll actually cast a ballot on Election Day." Here are a few of the issues in higher education on which voters will have a say: [...]
