I am in the US Army National Guard. I work full time and have a family of my own. I have a passion to help animals. I am going to school right now because I want to become a veterinarian. I look forward to graduating soon which is in the fall of 2021. I am looking for a 4 year college to transfer to, to pursue my career. I cannot afford to pay the tuition for some of these 4 year colleges. This scholarship would be of great help for me and it'll greatly help me get closer to my career goal. I am not sure how to apply for this scholarship because when I clicked on "apply now" it took me to this comment box. I hope this comment will be read by someone who understands my situation and could help me. I am a hard working military woman who strives for more and my motivation is my daughter, also my main motivation is my disabled veteran husband who always pushes me to be better.

When I joined the army I was (currently still) a single mother who would do anything for my daughter. I was looked down my many because I was a women who wants and has a voice. I want my daughter to know that others will put you down, but you will come up stronger. Women are fierce, powerful, accustomed to any obstacle in their way. I saw this scholarship and I want to take the opportunity to use this for my future, and my daughters future for a better life as a single mother. A women who stands taller than the sky. I want to be a nurse, I will be a nurse, both for the military and civilian side. Those who put down women and others because of the skin on my bones , of the race I'm proud to be, of their opinions I believe will not stop me from my educational goals to support my family.

Hello! I am a medic and I am currently serving in the United States Army. I joined in 2017 to help with my college tuition and I get out at the end of 2021. I am the first female in my family to ever have served in the Armed forces. I am currently applying for this scholarship to continue my education. I have completed some college classes while I served overseas in Afghanistan, and I would like to further my education and get my BSN. If you could help me in achieving this I would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much for your consideration.

I am a active duty Field Artillery Officer Veteran. After being medically retired, going back to graduate school has provided me purpose and a challenge I have greatly missed from the military. My army career ended earlier than I expected, and returning to school has allowed me to gain the education I need to serve in a new way in the education field, with the hopes of returning to teach on a military installation some day!

I am a disabled army veteran that served from 2007-2016. My goal was to fulfill my 20 years in the Army but due to physical and mental injuries I was not able to achieve that goal. Last 4 years has not been easy, thanks to the Veteran Affairs department my medical providers and mental health counselors I'm working on overcoming my struggles. I am currently enrolled in community college to complete my Associate Degree in Plant Science to transfer to Fresno State University in the near future. It took us, my educational counselor and myself a few months of research finding out what vocational career would fit best my abilities. It was not easy but we found one, Plant Science. Due to my disabilities I am unable to interact to often with people or environment that can trigger my PTSD levels, but I find myself in a very friendly environment when working outdoors. I live in California, central valley an agricultural zone with lots of employment opportunities. I'm currently unemployed which makes financial matters things difficult at home but I'm focus on educating myself and become again a productive citizen for this country. I believe agriculture is vital not only to California but to the nation's economy. This is the field where I want to make my contribution.

I did apply for the scholarship because, my Mom served in the Army and in National Guard, but had to leave the Military because she was pregnant with me. She would want me to get this scholarship.

I am a disabled veteran that severed for 8 1/2 years. I am finishing up my Master's Degree and I am looking for some financial help to get my last few classes paid for. I would be honored to have this scholarship. My goal is to continue my education and obtain a Doctorate Degree in Finance. My dream is to teach college. I currently own a Puppy Academy that trains German Shepherd puppies for disabled veterans that suffer from PTSD, Seizures, and Psychiatric illnesses. Getting this scholarship would tremendously help me achieve my goals and continue to give back to those that serve our country.

I am a United States Veteran trying to finish school. I currently am working toward my bachelors degree in Business Management/Entrepreneur. I am looking for someone extra money for books and tuition and would love to be in the drawing for this scholarship!

Anna W.  on 10/26/2020 9:27:01 AM

I am serving in the Army currently, but I got in a bad accident. I'm recovering from my accident, but there is always a chance of the Army kicking me out. I'm trying to start graduate school before they kick me out. Fingers crossed that they don't kick me out and that I get this scholarship to help pay for school.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device. While the majority of students were able to meet this requirement, according to a study by EDUCASE, some students found themselves without a modern laptop that could run the most up-to-date browser, use RAM-heavy software or keep up even with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi. One university has announced a unique remedy for this technical situation. [...]
