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

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.

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.

The U.S. Department of Education launched more than two dozen investigations into higher education institutions nationwide - including UC Berkeley, UCLA and USC as well as Yale, Princeton and Rice - which offer female-only scholarships, awards and professional development workshops.
