Hello I really need this scholarship because I finally got into the school I've been wanting to go to so I can study Theater and Screenwriting, but the school is an expensive area to live in not to mention the tuition, books, and meal plan that you have to pay for. It's not just to help me to also help my mother because my parents are divorced and my dad doesn't pay for me to go to college so she tries for my sisters and I but it's hard for her. I would like your help so she doesn't always have to worry about and so I can pursue my dream.

Entering my last semester of college at 52 years young. I have worked hard and am ready for the next season. This would be fabulous to end strong.

Hello, I have an associates degree from a regionally accredited college and have a bachelor degree in project management from a nationally accredited college. Can I apply for anything since I am currently in need of a BS from a regionally accredited school? Is there any assistance for continuing my education? My GPA is 3.73. Thank you for your assistance in advance. Kindest Regards, Martha

I applied to this scholarship to help me with school, It's hard to find opportunities like this

Kayci H  on 3/22/2016 12:58:17 PM

I intend to apply as well. I got accepted to San Jose State so I need all the help I can get

Anthony M  on 2/29/2016 4:58:19 PM

I'm going to apply this scholarship. The reason is that I'm going to San Jose State University this semester and I'm coming from a small town, which my parents own a family business, which doesn't mean that we have lots of money, we are barely getting by. I would have to move there, because its almost 2 hours away from my town. I help out my parents at their work when I have time from school and my job that I work part time. I work for free at my parents business, so I don't get paid from my parents, since they need the money to pay not just the bills for the house but as well the building for the business.

I am in need of this scholarship to further my education and to do research in the city where I reside.

Martha Mari B  on 11/17/2015 6:08:24 PM

I applied for this scholarship to help pay for Nursing School. I am a struggling, young mother of 2 children and this scholarship would really help me reach my goals. I am motivated and determined to give my children the future they deserve.

Alejandra Z  on 10/13/2015 8:30:00 PM

I am curently a student at Golden Valley High School and I would really love to earn this scholorship because I don´t come from a wealthy family and don´t have much to offer. I am a person who loves school and I have dreams and winning this scholorship would really help me to chase my dreams.

I am currently starting my College adventure to become a Professional Medical Assistant with intentions to further my career to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse. I have never won a award but am very positive, and have high hopes for good things to come. Despite all the put downs from family members and have no friends but my two children who are four years old and three weeks old, I look and seek to stay strong as a helper, as a Mom and a wife, so I can show them anything is possible if you just believe. This scholarship is not a want, it is a need. I can encourage my family, tend to my children's needs and Most importantly put this money where its needed in my Career. I only believe in going up, and never coming back down. Looking forward to the future with.

I'm a female hispanic who is the first one to go to a 4 year university. I love, to go to school, learn new material/subjects. Education is very important to me. It's my life! Also, getting a higher education is very important. Because, I can help out my community who are in need. I consider myself, an honest, kind, hard working woman who has been through so many struggles in my life. Education has saved my life! Without, education I would not be where I am at. And I'm very thankful for my friends, and professors who helped me get this far. I strongly believe getting this scholarship can help me further my education career goals.

DANIEL G  on 8/19/2012 4:27:57 AM

I`m hispanic and love to play sports. I`m part of my college soccer team which I`m really proud of. In school i always like to learn something new it doesn`t matter what it is. As the oldest brother of four i`m suppose to be there role model and guide them the right path. i deserve this because, i`m honest, hard working, and committed on what i do.

Stephanie P  on 7/2/2009 2:26:57 PM

I applied for this scholarship 3 years ago, and I got it. It has been an excellent support to my very expensive tuition. It has been great, and I can't imagine what I would do without it. As long as you demonstrate a financial need within a certain income bracket and have the corresponding GPA bracket, then you should be set

University of California Seeks New Standardized Test

May 27, 2020

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.
