I am an early graduate from Lake Norman high school in Mooresville, North Carolina . I was going the early graduate route to enlist in the Air force, but while analyzing my future endeavors I realized that i was more motivated and interested in college than the military. I would like to obtain my masters in biology, and ultimately become a Obstetrician. I have a history myself, i do not stop until i achieve them no what it takes. I've obtained that way of thinking from my mother, she's a college graduate in multiple areas. My mother is my friend and my mentor. She has obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Science in Nursing with a specialization as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Her ambition as a college student while raising children as single mother has fueled my determination to succeed and make her proud. She is now a Nurse Practitioner with Carolina Health System. Her life story, her strong will as a single mother, and all of her achievements give me so much motivation to not only be like her, but also to strive to become better. I remember joining Army JROTC my freshman and sophomore year at Mallard Creek High School. During my experience I gained increased Knowledge, leadership skills, team work, and delayed gratification which will aid me on my college journey. My integrity, intense leadership skills, and respect for higher authority was profoundly elevated while maintaining academic requirements. This can be represented by my GPA and ability to obtain early graduation at the age of `17 years old. JROTC helped make me who i am today, and i will not settle for less because i know what i'm capable of accomplishing if i put my mind to it. I believe in my generation that we can make a change and that we are smart enough to make the right choices, but we do not push each other enough. Not only is my career a way of helping the community, it is rewarding and fulfilling. The foundation of my upbringing is built upon being humble and appreciati

I am an African-American male applicant and am currently attending a school outside of the United States on a full-scholarship, but my school is not listed in the application. My family lives in U.S., and my permanent address is still in the U.S. Is there anyway for me to apply if my school is not listed in the drop-down menu as the application is formatted. I would really like to apply for this scholarship.

I'd like to receive this scholarship because it'll help me jumpstart my college career as a Linguistics major and the scholarship would assist me on paying for tuition, housing, etc,. If chosen I'd be grateful and appreciate the opportunity and become one of the first in my immediate family to FINISH my four-years in college.

Shardae A  on 12/29/2015 1:23:12 PM

I'm one of the many African-American females applicants here to try and gain this scholarship. I am currently a high school senior, and I wanted to go straight to a four year university. But I'm now headed to community college because money-wise it's cheaper. Also I will be one of few in my family who've attended college and succeeded in graduating. This scholarship will be a beneficial stepping stone for my college plan and pursuing a teaching degree where I can help impact children's lives positively.

Amber M  on 12/5/2015 9:23:12 AM

What if we are going to community college and then transferring, can we not apply for this?

Kayla M  on 10/20/2015 5:36:22 PM

I believe this scholarship will help me achieve my dreams of going to college. I am wanting to go out of state for my college education, therefore the expense is increased exponentially. If I am lucky enough I hope this scholarship will make this path for me become more reachable.
