Is this scholarship state-specific or a National scholarship?

I have ADD and dyslexia. I am a sophomore in college working on my bachelor's program. I went through a year of being homeless and had to use more Federal funding from student loans to get back on my feet, and I have hit my federal student loan limit. I have 6 kids. I'm in a nursing program and if I don't go on to the next semester I am not going to get another chance at this program. I'm not a high school senior obviously but I've had to come so far to have to give up now. I'm in great need. I am so overwhelmed. I didn't know I had maxed out my loans until less than two weeks ago. I'm filling out stuff for scholarships like crazy but I fear this will be the end of the road for me.

My son has filled out the application fully. The recommendation request send out does not seem to be working. He has left e-mails as instructed on the website. No help yet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have ADHD and executive functioning disabilities. I have an IEP at my high school which I take advantage of. I will be paying for college completely on my own and hope to get into a good college to study Criminal Justice to become a K-9 Police Officer.

My learning disability is affected me in many ways, but in a single word, it has developed my compassion toward others. Yes, I have learning disabilities, but, no that has not stopped me from achieving my goals. I may not progress as quickly as others, but very few individuals understand the additional work it takes to earn my grades. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue to my education and eventually earn my PsyD in Forensic Psychology. Thank you.

In order to further my education, I’m applying for your scholarship, which will assist with my financial needs. My mother is a single mom, who has always instilled the importance of education in me. Although I was born with a disability (tic disorder), I refused to allow it to identify or stymie me from achieving my goals. I’ve been playing the violin and piano for 7 years, and I’m currently in my high school orchestra. Each year I’ve participated in regions and state, along with using my musical talents to volunteer and play for others (church and summer school children’s programs). I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration.

What do you consider as financial need? My parents make decent money but have told me I will have to pay for most of my education.

Natasha F  on 2/26/2018 3:59:39 PM

Hello - My son has dyslexia and has been accepted to top notch engineering schools but they all come at a hefty price tag. What exactly does demonstrated financial need mean?

Victoria B  on 2/25/2018 9:03:26 PM

Can you please advise what would demonstrate financial need?

Keith P  on 11/3/2015 2:43:34 PM

I am interested in this scholarship because I would like to advance my skills to be the next further leader.

I'm interested this scholarship because I really do need this.

Jessica S  on 11/18/2011 2:52:23 PM

This is a great opportunity for students like me with ADHD & an additional LD! I'm looking forward to working on my application.

Auctioning Off College Admissions Seats?

April 2, 2019

by Susan Dutca

Why not have schools auction off college seats to the highest bidder? The question was posed by a senior vice president at the Harvard Management Company on his public LinkedIn page amid the recent national college admissions cheating scandal. According to Michael Cappucci, it is simply "an honest question." He goes on to ask, "Why do we have a system where wealthy parents have to make shady payments to even more shady intermediaries to get their kids into college?" The post, which has since been removed but still drew much online anger was authored by Cappucci who is "not a top official" at the company; many people still presumed Harvard is connected to his idea, according to Inside Higher Ed, but Harvard was quick to distance itself from the LinkedIn post.
