Currently an undergradute student working towards a degree in Nursing. I enjoy what I do because I know I am making a difference for the patients I will soon interact with. Love the fact that of putting others first before myself because I can see the smiles on their faces with warm my heart. Enjoy other hobbies like video games, hiking, long trips with my family for the weekend. Have a small part-time job where I work with the elderly in which I enjoy.

I live in the Coalfields of Southwestern VA. Jobs are hard to come by. Either you work in fast food or become a RN or just move away from this area. My home Town of St. Paul VA is getting a State Park along the Clinch River. I want to be come a Park Ranger in my local area and be proud of my home town. I have always loved the outdoors and I want to welcome others to my home town! Thanks so much

I am a single father who is currently working and paying child support. I dropped out of school due to the death of my father in 2014; I had 19 credit hours left before receiving my Bachelors Degree in Mass Communications. I currently work as a teacher assistant, and do not make enough money at my current educational level. Finishing my degree would give me the opportunity to work towards getting a provisional teaching certificate, while studying for the teacher's exam. I would greatly appreciate any assistance that I can.

It is really hard to find a job these days without some form of graduate education, and Virginia Commonwealth University is the institution that fits different careers that I am considering. Some students have a specific career in mind when applying for colleges, but many have little idea of the specific career they would like to pursue when graduated. Right now, I consider either a career in psychology or dentistry. To help me to make up my mind, I decide to double major in dental and psychology so that both options remain open. I hope that by deepening the two topics, I will understand what really interests me and where I can see myself in the future.

is there a certain degree program I have to pursue?

Is there a deadline for this scholarship? I would really love to apply to this.

Jose A  on 1/17/2018 11:51:20 AM

I am wanting to know if this scholarship has a deadline. My school said it runs out of funds. I could really have used this towards my tuition. Any information or help is greatly appreciated.

JEREMIAH A  on 12/20/2015 2:40:16 PM

I am selecting this scholarship, based on the fact that I enjoy learning. My main major of choice is Psychology, but prefer Mathematics, because this is one of my favorite subjects. Thanks' in advance for considering me for this wonderful opportunity.

by Izzy Hall

Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions.
