As the years rapidly go by change is expected. Compassion and love seem to dwindle as well as caring for one another. I am applying for this scholarship because gender equality is one of if not the most important equality we as a people can have. It is just as equal as human rights and civil rights. No person should be discriminated on, hated on, or persecuted because of their gender identity, choice, or given birth whether gay, intersex, trans, bisexual, binary or non binary alike. As a current corrections nurse (LPN) I strive my hardest to ensure equality to the many "lost" LGBTQ whose lives still matter. Especially in the prison systems. Many are ashamed or embarrassed and hide their true identity in fear of inequality. I hope to make a change with that. I work closely with corrections officers and members of PREA (prison rape elimination act) daily to ensure there is no mistreatment of our LGBTQ prisoners and any inmates who happen to come to jail. That they are housed fairly and that they are not mistreated and are safe. I believe in equality for every human being and as I attempt to transition for my RN hope to one day come up with a bill to further help LGBTQ not just in prison and corrections systems but also juveniles struggling to identify and the concerns they may have while incarcerated.

I am applying for this scholarship, as gender equality and sexual orientations are really important to me. My siblings both identify as non-binary and people have made fun of them all their lives. This was a major hardship on me growing up because I was taught to love and accept everyone. Me, being the over protecter that I am, would always tell our parents or the school principle/teacher. I was made fun of, for my siblings. I attended the LGBTQ+ parade and march, I want to show everyone that its okay to be who you are and to not care what others will think of you! you are special, you are worth it.

ACT Class Action Lawsuit: $16 Million Settlement for Students with Disabilities

October 23, 2020

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

ACT, Inc., the college admissions testing company, has agreed to pay out $16 million to 65,728 California students with disabilities to settle a class-action lawsuit. The class-action federal lawsuit filed in California in 2018 alleged that ACT, Inc. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and California's Unruh Civil Rights Act by disclosing test-takers' disability status to colleges and scholarship organizations on score reports, and denied certain examinees with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in its Educational Opportunity Service.

Test-Optional Colleges Pledge to Judge Applications Holistically

October 22, 2020

by Izzy Hall

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has made it harder than ever to take the SAT and ACT, many colleges and universities, from large state universities to small liberal arts colleges, have announced that their admissions for next year’s Class of 2025 will be test-optional. Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process. But how will admissions officials judge applicants without a score? Will a student who doesn’t submit a standardized test score be penalized in any way? And will a student who does submit a score be chosen over one who doesn’t? [...]
