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.

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?

Can you please advise what would demonstrate financial need?

November 13, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Scholars will launch an interdisciplinary journal next year, called The Journal of Controversial Ideas, where authors will be able to publish their academic work under pseudonyms due to "recent threats against polarizing academics." There will be no restrictions on academic disciplines, and "both left-wingers and right-wingers" are welcome on the editorial board. [...]

November 6, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Research indicates that college students are expected to vote in record numbers in today's midterm election, in stark contrast to the nation's lowest youth turnout and voter registration in 2014. While forty percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they will "definitely vote" in the midterm elections, "doesn't mean they'll actually cast a ballot on Election Day." Here are a few of the issues in higher education on which voters will have a say: [...]
