I am an early college student, and on my senior year of high school. I am a trying my best to apply right now to any school scholarships for me as much as possible. Being Filipino, there’s not much scholarships for me out me. I am hoping I get noticed and get this scholarship, so my parents don’t have to worry about money. It is sad that in today’s colleges/university’s cost so much. I wish everyone who’s applying for scholarships luck. God bless.

I applied for this scholarship because as a first generation student of a low-income family, I would like to be able to go through college without stressing my parents out due to any financial obstacles that may appear. I know that they have a little money saved up for my education but I believe that they should save it more for their health as they get older. This scholarship would help my parents out a lot.

I am grateful for the opportunity to apply for these scholarships. The tuition, room, board and other fees associated with college are a bit overwhelming to say the least. My family and I would be extremely grateful for any help we can get to help pay some of these expenses. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

apparently since one of the requirement is to be a citizen of the United states, which i am not, so it means that i cannot apply for it.

Harvard Supporters Back University in Admissions Trial

October 16, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Harvard students and alumni will testify in support of Harvard during the admissions trial this week, defending its "race-conscious admissions policy" against claims that it discriminates against Asian-American applicants. The trial is the latest chapter in a lawsuit filed in 2014 by Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA).

Harvard University has been accused of "balancing its undergraduate classes to ensure that it had admitted its desired share of students of each race and ethnicity" and also for penalizing Asian-American applicants by "systematically giving them lower scores on a metric admissions officers use to measure personality." Adam Mortara, a lawyer representing SFFA, stated that the university scores applicants in four categories: academic achievement, athletic ability, extracurriculars, and personality. While referencing admissions data, he concluded that, despite their higher academic performance, Asian-Americans are admitted at lower rates. [...]
