$2,000 Resolve to Evolve Scholarship Award Winner - Best Overall
"After living in China, Japan and Canada, I moved to New Jersey at the age of seven, and have played the violin for twelve years and enjoy playing badminton, reading, and playing the piano. In school, my favorite classes include physics, chemistry and calculus. I hope to major in engineering and minor in computer science in college. I first started using Scholarships.com in the second half of junior year, and have found it to be extremely helpful in matching me to a plethora of relevant scholarships. It has made the college application process seem a lot less insurmountable, knowing that Scholarships.com would help me in trying to reduce the cost of my education. I would like to thank Scholarships.com for all of the resources it has given me access to and for giving me the help I need to achieve my dreams."
$1,000 Resolve to Evolve Scholarship Award Winner - Senior
"My name is Daniel Spencer and I have a wide range of interests. I love most subjects in school, especially Spanish, history, calculus and chemistry. My goal is to speak fluent Spanish in the near future, along with a number of other languages, including Russian and French. Obviously, I also love foreign languages. I find it incredibly interesting to study and learn about an entirely new way of looking at and describing the world, looking at things from the perspective of another culture. When I am not pursuing academic interests, I like to play video games and hang out with my friends, watch a little bit of baseball (I'm a Red Sox fan, of course) and read. My favorite book series is the great Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.
When I head off to college, I plan on studying both biochemistry and Spanish, with a special focus in pre-medical studies. Scholarships.com has already helped the first step of my goal to become a doctor with this scholarship. I found and completed this scholarship and a number of other scholarships through their quick, easy-to-use service and I plan on using the website in the coming months."

$1,000 Resolve to Evolve Scholarship Award Winner - Sophomore
San Diego, CA
"Apart from schoolwork, I enjoy reading, baking cupcakes, and watching sports on the weekends with my dad. When I’m not busy, I like to apply for scholarships to further my education. While my parents have worked very hard in order to give me a college fund, I feel like it’s my future, and it is my responsibility to help pay for it. At first, searching for scholarships was frustrating, and numerous times, I nearly gave up on the idea all together. I would get halfway through reading through the guidelines of a scholarship and realize that it was only for high school seniors or children of disabled veterans or residents of Illinois. While this may seem kind of corny, Scholarships.com helped change my entire perspective on how to apply for scholarships. The website made it easy to find what I was qualified for, and I will always be grateful for the opportunities it has presented to me that I would not have known about otherwise."

The Resolve to Evolve Essay was the first scholarship that I decided to enter and I'm so grateful that I did. I can't thank scholarships.com enough for this opportunity.In college, I hope to major in business and I am eager for the future. Some of my interests are soccer, FBLA, student council, Spanish club and orchestra. In my free time, I enjoy studying and playing the cello.
