I want this scholarship

I would encourage this award to be extended to online public cyber charter schools. Many of these schools offer coursework more difficult than the local districts and the students are motivated to achieve excellent grades. Some students also strive to complete both a full load of high school coursework and college courses taken at local community colleges. Students often include many extra-curriculars from school clubs to sports at both the local districts and privately. It does the community a disservice to exclude these highly motivated students.

The essay needed for eligibility, what is it about? What is the topic in which we are writing?

I applied for this scholarship in fifth grade and won in 2008, I've been recognized as a repeat or returning scholar in 2010, 2011 and 2012. It's a great program, Dr. Carson is such an inspiration!

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. 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. But the University of California system has gone in an entirely different direction by announcing that will no longer require the SAT or ACT for all California state applicants. [...]
