I’m applying for this scholarship because my mother has put both of her daughters through school on her own, and even with my scholarships it’s not enough to cover the tuition because it is a private university. I believe I can change the world with my kinesiology degree and help younger athletes that don’t have the knowledge or guidance of taking care of their bodies. I’m also a football athlete as well and plan on being both productive on and off the field!

Tabatha Majewski M  on 2/27/2019 11:23:05 AM

Yes, I am applying for this scholarship to help pay for my college expenses. I got accepted into Jamestown Community College but have to pay for everything on my own so I am trying to get as much help as I can. -Tabatha Majewski

Alexis H  on 3/2/2018 1:03:43 PM

Yes, I happily applied for this scholarship mainly because of my financial need. Since I am a homeless, independent, my college funds are coming out of pocket. So far I am paying $4,000 a year ($400 a month) to help aid myself in paying less after I graduate. I am the first generation of my family to attend college and being presented with scholarships will help not only fund my education, but inspire my siblings below me to go to college even if it is expensive. There is always help out there, you just have to find it. Thank you for your time and I hope after reviewing my application you will be a part of the few that are lending a helping hand. - Alexis Harris

Curtis Thomas S  on 3/1/2018 8:43:41 PM

I would love to talk about how I as an individual have overcome great obstacle in my life, but the truth of the matter is I have not overcome obstacles in my life alone. In 2014 my family and I became homeless it was a very difficult, confusing, and scary time for all of us not having a place to live. We had to depend on the kindness of others. This was a very humbling and trying experience, but we overcame our situation. We learn to work as a (family unit) team. I learned how to stay focused, how to push myself hard and achieve my given objective.My family and I have a new home in a great neighborhood. I have learned through these trials and tribulations not to be judgmental of others and always be willing to help others as well as receive help from others. I learned never to give up, and how to always fight for your dreams. There is always a better tomorrow.

Mya F  on 2/27/2018 5:04:54 PM

Stephanie W  on 2/15/2018 9:37:23 AM

Before high school even began my parents informed me that if I had any desire to go to college, I would have to do it on my own and no money from them would be given to me for my college tuition. My academics have always been above standard and luckily I was somewhat athletic. I have played soccer 5 years now and ran cross country 3 years. I have been given the blessing of a cross country scholarship, but that still leaves me with about $20,000 dollars a year out of pocket. I need to round up as many scholarships as possible if I wish to be successful. Just thought I'd give this small one a try!

Zackary P  on 2/13/2018 12:55:46 PM

Yo, what's up? I'm Zackary Pettit and I'm here to see if you'll give a G to a guy who doesn't have a lot of money. College is expensive and I'll take whatever I can get. I can tell you a lot more about me but I'm not sure where to go so yeah.

Callie A  on 2/12/2018 12:43:20 PM

I am applying so I will have a better chance of college. So money coast wont be so bad. Getting all the money I can get to go to school for free is worth whatever I can do.

Manuel D  on 2/9/2018 3:28:42 PM

To start off, my name is Manuel Diaz. I am currently a high school senior with a grade point average of 3.2. I never would imagine applying to a four year university. Throughout my high school career, I was worried about attending a four year university due to the financial ability one has to be at. Now here I applying for a scholarship that may or may not help my financial status for college. Constantly working, while at the same time playing varsity soccer, I have successfully managed my academic life with my personal life. Surprisingly, I still have many other hobbies such as producing music on a digital platform, making digital artwork, and filming. Computer science seems to fully grab my attention at the moment and with your help you can help me by saving a few cents on my education. Thank you for your time.

Martina S  on 2/7/2018 9:23:09 PM

Anyone would want to fulfill a college career if they knew getting an education was free. Who wouldn't? My name is Martina St Hubert and applying for this scholarship will truly benefit me and my future career goals. A lot of high school seniors like myself do not have the finances to accomplish what they are called to do, so they usually give up. I'm not, I know that I am going to become a Pediatrician and any support would be greatly appreciated. Being able to apply for this scholarship is a recognition because many other students do not get this opportunity. Thank you!

Dawson S  on 2/7/2018 10:43:48 AM

Hi, my name is Dawson Smith, a senior in high school as I type this out. Ever since I was a little kid, I've had to struggle and go through tests because of my Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). But because of this, it has made me work hard for my 3.0 GPA and through my honors English 4, Government and Economics. I've put so much time into my academic needs and have been able to balance out these with my extracurricular activities such as: Band, Student Council, National Honor Society, Yearbook, UIL Academics and our schools Prom Committee. I have received a number of accolades and leadership roles including: Front Ensemble band section leader, Percussion captain for 2 years, Junior student body President, Senior body Vice President, Homecoming King, 1st place District champion in Poetry Interpretation, 1st division Solo and Ensemble State Qualifier, Assistant Editor-in-Chief, as well as a two time student of the month. I would love this scholarship because this scholarship would help pay for my tuition that I need to pay for myself, and my job doesn't pay a lot of money right now, so getting this scholarship would help me to afford books and part of my tuition. Thank you for your consideration.
