"I'm an 18-year-old living in Sugar Hill, Georgia, going to North Gwinnett High
School. I plan on attending the University of Georgia next fall, and I currently
want to major in Film, English or Environmental Science. I love reading, writing,
movies and walking. I play the bass guitar and work as a waiter at a local restaurant.
Scholarships.com has been a big help in locating potential scholarship awards for
me. The whole process seems a lot easier to navigate thanks to the website. Whenever
anyone I know needs help finding money for college, I suggest that they check out
"I'm a 17-year-old oddity, possessing every recessive gene for an American
teenager. In other words, I'm very unusual, and love being that way. I'm a Seventh-Day
Adventist vegan, and have been since birth. Church activities and hanging out with
my friends make me happy and bring out the true weirdo goofball in me. Odd or not,
however, I'm going to college, and I can't wait. I'm going to find my dream, what
I'm passionate about, and what I want to do, which I think might have something
to do with writing. I plan to head to either Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama
or Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. One thing that's constant amidst
all this uncertainty is options for paying for college. Scholarships.com has been
a big help in finding me scholarships to apply for (they did all the dirty work)
even before they awarded me with one. I am grateful to all at Scholarships.com for
my award and all they have done for me and (I trust) will continue to do for me
as I continue my scholarship search."
"I was very pleased with the variety of scholarship opportunities that were available
to me via Scholarships.com. I was able to get the first scholarship that I applied
for (I realize that this is a rare feat). It was all thanks to the organization and
vast variety of options that I found on Scholarships.com that I was able to do so.
I believe that it is important that we expose ourselves as much as we can to build
a bank of experience and this website has helped me to get my name out and show
people what I stand for. I am aspiring towards getting a Doctorate of Veterinary
Medicine. With years of schooling ahead of me and mountains of fees to pay, I am
doing as much as I can and using all of the resources available to me in order to
complete my goal. I would like to thank Scholarships.com for making my dreams seem
within my reach."
"I am an aspiring marine biologist. I recently participated in the Dive Program
at the Georgia Aquarium and hope to be a certified scuba diver one day. At my school,
I am an officer in the JROTC and play Water Polo for both the co-ed and girls teams.
I am in the Chorus, Show Choir, and Drama Club where I also choreograph routines
for our musicals. I am very excited about college but not about the expense of out-of-state
tuition. Scholarships.com is helping me to attack the expense of potentially attending
college far away from home. I am amazed at the number of scholarships offered and
the way they help me to organize my search. This is the first scholarship I have
ever won, but who knows, Scholarships.com may help me to get to the college and
ocean of my dreams."
"After high school my intentions are to attend a prestigious college to eventually
earn a degree somewhere in the business or marketing field. I understand that college
is expensive and Scholarships.com has helped me get a head-start in looking for
scholarships so that when the time comes, my college expenses will be reduced by
a considerable amount. Any scholarship, regardless of amount, will help me in a
few years when it's time to start making post-graduation decisions. I will continue
to use scholarships.com to try and earn as much money as possible for college. This
website is easy to navigate through, provides reliable links, and allows me to view
scholarships that appeal to my interests. Thanks Scholarships.com!"

Harvard revoked more admissions offers - this time involving 10 students who participated in a Facebook group called "Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens." Jokes about abusing children and the Holocaust and insulting comments about different racial and ethnic groups were found in the group, according to Inside Higher Ed.
Earlier this month, Harvard also rescinded an admission offer to Kyle Kashuv who, when he was 16 years old, used inflammatory and racist language, including the N-word, right before the Parkland shooting at his school, Stoneman Douglas High School. The shootings have since "changed him and made him more mature," he claims. Kashuv became famous for his conservatism, pro-gun and pro-Trump activism which he believes, represent a different view on how to prevent future, like tragedies.
In a recent Twitter post, he apologized for his past comments and stated that, "We were 16-year-olds making idiotic comments, using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible...I'm embarrassed by it, but I want to be clear that the comments I made are not indicative of who I am or who I've become in the years since." Shortly thereafter, Harvard looked into his case and eventually revoked his admissions offer. Though university personnel appreciate his "candor and expressions of regret," Harvard "takes seriously" the "qualities of maturity" and of "character" of the students it admits. Despite appealing the revocation, Kashuv was turned down. In his defense, Kashuv argues that, "throughout its history, Harvard's faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots and anti-Semites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn't possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution. But I don't believe that. I believe that institutions and people can grow. I've said that repeatedly." In your opinion, should Kashuv have had his admissions offer revoked based on something he did when he was 16? Why or why not? [...]
