Does anyone know if this scholarship is needs-based? We are looking for scholarships that are not need-based.

I applied for this scholarship so I can pursue an education in nursing. My ultimate goal is to become an RN and possibly become a nurse practitioner. But I want nothing more than to be a nurse. Life's circumstances prevented me from being able to pursue my dream, but I got a second chance, a "do over" in life and I don't want to let this opportunity slip away.

I applied for this scholarship because I would like to pursue my Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education so that I can mold Young minds so that they can pursue a better future.

I did not apply for this scholarship. The reason why is I don't view censorship is a big problem in the United States because it keeps kids minds free from negativity and disorderly conduct.
