I am applying for this scholarship because being a recent high school graduate and started a new part-time job is not easy. I am only able to afford as much as I can. I am a 19 year old undergraduate student and I am only beginning to know what it is like to be an adult. Between paying for student loans, car insurance and as well as other basic needs, I am in need of assistance financially. I recently started my college education back in August and I think it has been going very well. My hope is to achieve my A.A and transfer to a university to obtain my major in Psychology and my minor in video game design. Trying to obtain a scholarship is a hard feat to accomplish and so far, it has been really rough. I have tried over and over and it was close but not close enough. I hope that with the help of this scholarship, I wanna turn my pipedream into a foreseeable reality.

With this scholarship I will be able to reach my goal and move to a better position in a great company. This degree I am try so desperately to obtain will give me my career job. I am a single mother of 4 and my struggle is real but no matter what I will try my very best to push forward to try and make my dream a reality.

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: [...]
