I want to attend OCC for my general classes that way I can earn my associates degree. I want to become a plastic surgeon so I need all the help I can get when it comes to being able to afford to attend a medical school. That is also why after I complete my general classes at OCC, I would very much like to transfer to a medical school to pursue my career. I am applying for this scholarship because it will help me pay for school and succeed in the career that I want. I have always loved helping others and putting others lives before mine. That is why I feel that I would succeed in the medical field. I am involved in my high school. I have entered a few marketing and business competitions, and have received many awards. I have helped with charities and food drives to help raise money for people in need. I have done food drives with my family outside of school also. I just really love to help others. Also during this time, COVID-19 hit my family hard. My mom is a nurse at a local nursing home, so I was always afraid she would catch the virus, but she was always afraid that if she caught it, she would give it to me. She would ask me every night to unlock the side door and hang up a trash bag on the door handle so that she could place her scrubs in the bag and quickly take them downstairs to wash them. Sometimes I got afraid that she had caught the virus, so I would make her food and place it on the bottom step to her bedroom just so that she could eat and we could keep each other safe. But even though she was scared of catching the virus, she still went to work and helped patients survive. She inspires me each and every day to want to help people like she does. So being accepted for this scholarship would help me become the amazing person my mom is today. We need more people like her in the world.

I am really excited to go to college, but, like most soon-to-be college freshman, am very nervous about tuition. I will soon be attending BYU Hawaii and majoring in elementary education. I cant wait to work at an elementary school teaching and changing children's lives!

Thank you for doing this for the community. Such scholarships help kids like me to dream big and achieve our dreams. I am an undergraduate student in University of Cincinnati studying to be a doctor. My parents help me with the expenses quite a bit. They are immigrants from Indai who are the hardest working folks that I know of. I am on the dean's list and copntinue to provide back to the community at various levels whenver possible. Any scholarship funding will greatly aid me in soaring and I can set an example for my little brother who just got into high school. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Deeply appreciate it.

I am currently a senior in High School and I plan on attending MSU to pursue a degree in Pediatric Speech Pathology. Helping people has always been something I loved and helping kids is even better. I would like to be picked for this scholarship because college is expensive and I do not want to graduate college with tons of student debt.

I am planning on going to Farmingdale state college. because of my major, I have very few schools to pick from and it is hard and stressful. I want to be a commercial piolet. in Farmingdale ill be studying aviation but it is a very expensive major to do. My family unforcedly doesn't have the money to support me financially right now and I need some hope to fight for my dreams.

My name is Naveen Sayeeram and I am entering into my sophomore year at York University. I am currently studying in the faculty of engineering with the goal of becoming an aircraft engineer and working for companies such as boeing, Airbus and Lockheed Martin. This year I will be choosing my major in engineering, so my main goal is to finish my undergrad as a mechanical engineer and later specialize as an aircraft engineer during my graduate studies. I did not always dream of becoming an aircraft engineer, however everything changed at the age of 14 when I was at the airport, during my time at the airport I was purely dazzled when I saw the aircrafts landing and taking off , it was truly amazing to watch. Later during my junior high school days I got even more fond of aircrafts and I was even into an aircraft geek at that point in time. Now fastforwarding all the way to my university year currently I easily passed all my courses in first with flying colours and due to that I have gotten some scholarships for my second year. Although, in the second year the course load is even higher than first year and along with that so are the tuition fees and I cannot expect the scholarships that I get will cover all the expenses. My household has my dad as the only person working and most of his salary goes towards our house rent, car services and groceries due to this reason I cannot expect my dad to contribute towards my college fees. The only option I have is this scholarship which would really help me finish my engineering degree successfully and lead me to my path of becoming an aircraft engineer.

Any money I am able to receive to help me pay for college is a great. It would help my parents out tremendously.

I am a sophomore at Gordon State College pursing my associates in engineering and I have been in honor societies such as: National Society of Leadership and Success, Phi Theta Kappa, and National Society of High School Scholars. I have been in clubs such as: African American Male Initiative, Student African American Brotherhood, and Toastmasters International. Currently I am the president of toastmasters and I have hosted events such as: Halloween Game Night, Thankful Toast Event, and Meditation for final exams. I have also managed a club executive board and was able to lead and inspire other members in the group to challenge themselves to become more effective leaders. I have attended the District 14 Toastmasters Conference “Illuminate your Path”, the National Society of Leadership and Success Leadership Summit at Azusa Pacific University-Azusa, California, and Southern Collegiate Leadership Conference at Georgia Southern University. I had a embedded honors project where I developed an idea for a fully autonomous electric car by producing drawings, 3D model car, and purposeful use of script. I have also done the Community Impact Competition where my team placed first place in introducing an idea called “Adopt-A-Student.” Adopt a Student is a program that is focused on students with housing insecurities. Connect students with families to support their financial needs. Earned first place out of eight schools in University System of Georgia. I also plan on getting my bachelors of science in Mechatronics engineering at Kennesaw State University.

joey baker  on 2/21/2020 5:53:18 AM

I'm not a senior I'm going to be a freshman and need some help paying for St Edwards High School. I really want to go here the experience alone would be amazing I am a straight A student and want to become more in life. Can you please help.

I plan on attending Alverno college to obtain my BSN. I want to have an excellent career and job, not only to have a good future, but to also give back to all those who've helped me along my journey and many more. I plan on using the money to help pay for my college expenses. I know my parents can only help me so much. My parents grew up in Mexico and they both came from very poor families. Our family is humble. Everything we have came with a sacrifice. They have taught me to be diligent and a hard-worker. I do not take anything for granted. And I look up to my parents a lot, their impact is profound, I seek their guidance and I hope to make them proud. I want to use this money to advance my medical education. With the education I receive, I will go on to help many people and make a difference in their lives.

lianne swanson  on 10/3/2019 12:02:22 PM

I know it says you have to be a high school senior but I'm not and I'm already enrolled into a diesel technical school. I'm straight A student and it'd be great if I could sign up for this. Could that be possible?

Christine G.  on 8/21/2019 5:42:30 AM

is this scholarship only available for students living in US?

Delia M  on 1/3/2012 10:24:48 AM

Yes,? because I would like to earn money, so I can pay for my financial needs in college.

Remembering 9/11

September 11, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the devastating September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States of America. We honor those who lost their lives in the attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, as well as the first responders who gave their lives rescuing survivors, and the passengers of Flight 93 who thwarted the hijacker’s plans. The events of September 11, 2001 touched the lives of all Americans and redefined a generation. Now, even in the midst of another national crisis, we feel it is appropriate to take the time to remember this tragedy. [...]
