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.

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.

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

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

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: [...]
