I am applying for the scholarship because my dad was in the navy during 9/11 and I want to be able to tell my dads story. he was a hero and he saved lives. I want to follow in my fathers foot steps but before I do that, I want his name to be known and used for a good cause.

I am applying for this scholarship in regards to my mother who is in the U.S. Navy and has served for about 18 years now. I come from a military family but the greatest influence out of all the heroes in my family has been my mother. She has inspired me to follow in her footsteps and has motivated me to be the best me possible in life. I want to be the image my mother is to me to everyone I surround myself in life, and winning this award would be a great honor because I can represent my mother, and the military as a future soldier. That is why I am applying for this scholarship.

I am applying for this scholarship in regards of my mother serving the US Air Force for a total of about 20 years. She has inspired me to do many great things in life, and pushes me to try my best in everything I do. Though I do not plan on serving in the military, I still hope to be able to serve my community as well as she does.

I am applying for this scholarship due to my dad serving in the US Military for 17 years. I loved that he fulfilled most of his life so far as a Military Drill Sergeant. I am hoping one day I could join the Military and do the same thing that my did. Fight for our countries freedom. I would love this more than anything and make more than just my dad proud. I hope one day my family is depending on me in the future. It would be my dream to take care of my whole entire family.

I am applying for this scholarship. My father served and retired from the U. S. Navy and my mother as well until a massive stroke. Now it's my time to show them how much I want to take care of them. I want this for me more than anything.

I am applying for this scholarship because I have a goal that I have set out and I feel that I need to do whatever it take to achieve it. I want to go to college and not a 2yr college but a university. I have no experience of the military but I wish to join so I can take care of my family that I have depending on me.

Research indicates that college students are expected to vote in record numbers in today's midterm election, in stark contrast to the nation's lowest youth turnout and voter registration in 2014. 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: [...]
