All my life, I've wanted to make my parents proud. I'm beyond grateful just being in this country and receiving an education that many students have to fight for in other countries. In the United States, you work for what you want, it just doesn't happen if you keep wishing it does. We are the future and we do have advantage. I'm currently waiting for October to come around so that I can begin writing and brainstorming ideas of what I could write about. But if I do get this scholarship I will get through all the requirements. I'll keep my word and be thankful that an opportunity like this came to me. Goodluck everyone!

Yes I applied and hope to get this scholarship. I want to be a vet and this is going to take a lot of schooling and will be expensive. I will need all the help I can get. I a good student, I study, make good grades, I work and live at home to save money. I graduate in May of this year and have taken 2 college classes already. When I put my mind to doing something, I am bound and determined to get it done. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated it. Thank you in advance for your consideration. And once I am a vet, I would love to see your animals!

Achieving this scholarship is not only a reward for achieving my goals in school and in bowling it is also a reward for my mother who has been very much involved in my process, discipline and effort. She is very worried about how to cover my costs of university studies, that this would be an immense gift for both ... She is an excellent mother for me and my younger brother.

Kelvyn P  on 11/27/2018 6:15:13 PM

I come from a family where education is viewed for the weak. I want the opportunity to go into school and not worry about payments but instead, worry about how I can change the world. With all the political climate in the world I believe with my International Business degree that I intend on earning will allow me to make the difference that we all need. I will work hard endlessly to help people that are in more need than me. I want to help single parents put their kids through school and make sure that they get the help that they need. I do not want this scholarship for myself, I want this scholarship to help every child that were in my shoes.

As a child of two immigrants, I have witnessed first hand the struggles of two very self-motivated, hard-working people who were not able to obtain good jobs as a result of not being able to have the opportunity to go to college. My goal in life is to be able to go to college, get my degree and be able to provide for my family, but because we don't have the sufficient money to send me to college I pray that I can be granted this scholarship. College is not promised in my future due to the financial situation I'm experiencing. My dad has left my mom swimming in a pool of debts up to her neck and my mom does not get enough money by cleaning houses. I wish everyone good luck and I hope that we can all get some financial help to help us forge our path to success. Hard work pays off in the end and I hope that every single person reading this understands that life is full of surprises and everything will work out in the end.

I would like to apply for this scholarship to get financial help with my studies of a auto engineering and if i have the opportunity some diesel mechanics. Life isn't easy being a household of 8 and my parents income isn't enough for me to pursue my dream career.My parents came to the U.S. looking for a better life to have a plate of food and to not face hunger as they did during their childhood. I am going to follow my dream job to make good income and give my future children a better future.

Anthony M  on 9/6/2018 12:38:32 PM

I'm just one of 7 children of my family that struggles to find a way to pay for tuition, my mother can,t able help me out unfortunately due to she has a lot on her plate.Well for my dad,I'd never had the chance to meet him but that wont define me as a person.I'm here today to strive in my career of being a orthodontist and prove to everyone that my dreams can be a reality.I won't be lucky to get this scholarship but a blessing to be able to get this opportunity.

Rasha Ibrahim  on 7/1/2018 1:09:21 PM

With all of respect,I would like to apply for this scholarship because it would help me hand for my future endeavors. We been immigrant to USA, unfortunately we bit of a financial struggle and my dream is to do my Master Degree in Journalism and Media Production. I would like to ask for a special consideration. I earned an undergraduate GPA of 2.141. While I was an undergraduate student I worked too many hours at many jobs, I felt obliged as I was the only supporter to my family to assist my father in caring our family, since my mother has been gravely ill for some time and I have several younger brothers and sisters, under these circumstances my GPA began to decline gradually as I did not have time to review my undergraduate studies at that time, knowing that I am a committed and diligent student.I will achieve success in my Master degree if I would get the assistant in scholarship, I hope you will accept my application in to be able to achieve my ambition and my dream.

Lilibeth Aragon  on 4/16/2018 8:44:25 PM

As a foreigner in America, I moved to America to better my education because my parents didn’t go to college and my country Liberia is a third world country that went through civil war; the civil war was a war between tribal groups and my father’s tribe was one of the targeted group for assassination. We moved to America in order to be safe. Now, in my country, boys are more uplifted to be the bread winner and go to school then girls. I want to better myself by becoming more educated and go back to my country to encourage these girls to go to school and better themselves educationally. I am the right person for this scholarship because my country is not a very safe place for girls and young children. Before moving to America, we experienced many incidents of arm robbery and one of them I recall very much. My father almost lost his arm from his body due to the arm rubber hitting him with a machete. Also, when Armed robbers attack, they tend to rape as many women as possible. it’s frightening because they have all kinds of diseases that they contracted from previous rape incidents. I believe that it was only by the grace of God that my sisters were able to hide in the bathroom without being noticed. This scholarship will impact my educational experience by motivating me to work harder academically by spending more time on my studies because last semester I had to work to pay for some of my fees. I spent a lot of time on work more than my academics and I would work very late and sleep in class most of the day. Because of the stress that came with work, I had terrible grades and couldn’t process the materials my teachers told me. This scholarship will relieve my family and me from taking loans that payed for some of the materials I needed for school. The scholarship will also make my educational experience at UNC positive instead of stressful. I f I get this scholarship, I will have the opportunity to become a nurse and when I become a nurse, I’ll travel back to my

I would love to applyfor this scholarship because it would give me a huge helping hand for my future endeavors. My mother being an immigrant has unfortunately left us in a bit of a financial struggle so with this gift I would be able to attend a four college and help my mothers financial load that she has. I would have only the utmost gratification but I also would never stop using the gift I was given to make a difference in the world.

Tyler O  on 1/27/2018 10:35:19 PM

If I was awarded this scholarship I would no longer live a life full of worrying about the future. Due to the fact that I worry about being able to go to college every single day. Like plenty of people I will be the first in my family to graduate high school. But, I would pour every sweat and tear I have to make sure my families sacrifices will not be unseen.

Hector M  on 1/17/2018 10:44:43 AM

This would be a big help for me and especially for my parents since they would be willing to give a lot in order for me to be able to become the first in the family to attend a four year university.

Alexis a  on 1/12/2018 8:53:15 PM

having an education and be a good citizen on our society is the key to success, but in order to achieve your goal you sometimes need to reach out and ask for help to people that care and value our effort and sacrifice. I appreciate and God bless you for your contributions to people like me that without your help we will never reach our goals. Thank you
