Thank you.

Ericka B  on 7/11/2018 2:09:48 AM

I’m applying for this scholarship because I can’t afford college. I finally transferred to a university after the struggle of finishing community college. Sadly it’s too expensive. I only got to live on campus one semester due to the cost. I’m currently taking online classes again so I won’t use all of my financial aid trying to have the on campus experience. Hopefully I find a scholarship that can help me get back on campus so I won’t miss out on having that life changing experience.

I want to take extra online courses because there are colleges all over the world that teach my interests. I am currently attending in alabama a MOA program and plan to graduate in January next year. I do not believe that any student should limit themselves to any one hat or career in this day and age when technology is essentially taking on many different forms and taking over so many aspects of our society. Cyber entertainment is so popular right now and the simple knowledge to code and create is valuable no matter where you choose to go.

I’ve been trying to save up to cover the cost of college so I am able to attend and become and orthodontist in the future but on my own and with very little help it is hard to achieve my goals. This scholarship will really help push me in the right direction to becoming an orthodontist and giving the world the smile it deserves.

Jessie D  on 5/22/2018 5:25:40 PM

I am a college dropout who would like to go back to school. I would like to study diagnostic sonography. I would like to go back to El Paso community college. Originally when I started college I had just had a baby girl and I was determined not to let that keep me from fishing up and earning a degree. However no matter how well you plan you never know where life takes you. My daughter had a condition where she would stop breathing and had to be on a monitor constantly. I didn't want to put that responsibility of her life in someone else's hands so I dropped out to care for her and I lost my financial aid. I never returned I couldn't pay for school on my own. I would love an opportunity to return and everyone always says it's never too late.

Talicia W  on 5/22/2018 12:14:39 PM

I am a child of a single mom who has worked tirelessly to ensure my sister I receive all the support and care we needed to ensure we got our education. My sister and I witness my mom pursue her bachelors degree after putting it off for years. If my mom could her college education after getting a divorce, relocating and pretty much start all over, there is noting in the way for me to do the same. my mom always say to my sister and I do not wait like she to get a degree. my mom also made the point to say, if I could do it with raising kids, being a full time employee and go to school so could we. I would really love to be considered for the scholarship so I could have assistance in paying for my books and other school items I may need. I would really appreciate the consideration.

Franshavia C  on 5/2/2018 7:51:20 PM

I am currently returning back to school this month to take a few classes and I have been accepted into nursing school at Union University for the Fall 2018. From my previous experience with school, it's always hard to hear that your parent makes to much, so I had to get student loans. Now that I am on my own it is still hard to get any financial assistance, so here I am. If I got this scholarship, it would really help towards accomplishing my dream of becoming a nurse.

I want this scholarship because it would take a toll off my parents who have been stressing at the fact that I need college money because they didnt go and it makes me feel bad because I want them to support me with whatever they got but unfortunately what they dont got is money and I feel that it would benefit me to win this scholarship because it can help me pay books, student fees, or even tuition. I hope I win this scholarship but if I dont I will not give up, I will keep applying to more scholarships until I win one

Helen S  on 4/23/2018 9:16:16 AM

"School" was always a bit difficult for me since we moved several times a year while I was a child. Now in my 40's, I have gone as far as I possibly can without a degree and I am just not willing to settle. I love the work I do and I have so much more to give by gaining a college degree. I am excited to start this new adventure. Thank you!

David  on 4/19/2018 3:34:45 PM

Yes, I applied to so that the funds will help to cover my undergraduate costs. I have an older sibling currently attending college. As you can imagine, coming from a middle income family, for my parents to pay for two children in college, at the same time is very taxing mentally. I am doing what I can to assist them in making it easier for them. Thank you.

Angel D  on 4/7/2018 8:34:30 PM

I applied for this scholarship because I haven't received any yet and I need the money to cover expenses on some of my Tuition.

Mimi Brooks  on 4/7/2018 3:39:05 PM

I am attending high school in grade 11 along with my unusual age. I am mainly catching up with scholarships,grants and things that i figure will help me move my feet. Not every one is going to have a reaching hand at every moment so i decided to take matters in my own hands. My main goals are to have transportation for myself and a job. Saving up money is the best rout in my opinion for that it puts a striving mindset to your situation. We have more than enough people who follow. I want to see more more leaders,developers ,planners with a determination. I'm not talking about someones determination i'm talking about having your OWN drive to your destination.I am a family oriented being, i love being around my family and helping them out. I'm not only trying to obtain the things i want but obtain the things i need. I would complain about how i do not have much time because of my age. But i realized we all start somewhere and no one can be judged for their process and growth.

Jessica M  on 4/5/2018 11:25:19 AM

I am a high school junior at Tivy High School who is Air Force JROTC. I'm the oldest of three children. My oldest sister on my dads side had passed away when i was 16. My mother and my grandmother had raised me because my father wasn't there at all for me. We don't have a lot of money. I started applying to colleges. And i would love to be accepted to Texas A&M Corpus Christi. I want to get my Bachelor's Degree in nursing. I would be the first child in my family to go to collage and get my degree in nursing. I want to help little children that are sick or hurt. To help people who need help. Who are sick or need surgery. I'm currently volunteering at my local hospital. It would be so amazing for me to get this scholarship.

Kimberly D  on 4/4/2018 11:56:32 AM

I am a high school sophomore at Elkins High School who is doing dual credit at my local community college. I am the oldest out of six children. My older sister died in a car crash when I was 4 years old. I was given up for adoption when I was just 5 years old. It has been very hard on me. I struggle with my identity of who I am and where I stand on this planet we call Earth. I have began my applications to colleges. I really want to be accepted in The University of Southern California, so that I major in the medical field. I want to get a Bachelor's Degree in nurse, and become a nurse practitioner. The reason I want to become a nurse practitioner, is because I want to be able to help children that need it the most. I want to be able to cure their sickness and take away the pain. I want to be able to help the kids, because I do not want them to every feel the kind of pain I felt, when I was given up for adoption. With the JumpStart Scholarship, I could finally be able to reach my potential of becoming a nurse practitioner, and help those who are unable to help themselves.

Blair R  on 4/3/2018 6:59:00 PM

I applied for this scholarship because I want to be able to support myself through college. Right now I am worried about how much student loans I will have to take out because I know my parents do not have the money to solely put me through college on my own. So I need to apply for every scholarship possible. Receiving this scholarship would be an honor and a blessing.

Linda A  on 4/3/2018 4:37:54 PM

I'm currently a junior in Mountain View High School who is trying to pay for college as cliche as that sounds. I'm prioritizing to succeeding and pay for my tuition all on my own, rather than my parents doing so. I plan on attending any of the universities near my home. I try to balance out school with my job so I can make extra money to do. I personally only dream to become a Forensic Pathologist and majoring in business to keep the spirit of my family's business alive.

I'm a sophomore in high school who is currently doing dual enrollment. Next year I'll be starting at Polk state collegiate high school with the goal of obtaining my AA degree by the end of my senior year. I applied for this scholarship because the school I wish to go to is out of state, which comes with a bit more money, so the more scholarships I apply to the more money I can save my mom.

Alex G  on 3/29/2018 5:34:59 PM

I'm a highschool sophomore at Mountain View High School. My family is from Mexico and I have to deal with the consistent struggles of not only being a Hispanic in America ,but keeping my gpa high.

Zaire Robinson  on 3/1/2018 4:56:26 PM

Dear JumpStart Scholarship, My name is Zaire Robinson and I go to Norcross Highschool. It's importatnt for me to take the time out and thank you for this jump start opportunity of a life time. Not only do I intend to use this money to further my education but I also want to be able one day to give back myself. I feel this scholarship is an excellent reward to those that work hard and are constantly looking for ways to not only better themselves but also others around them as well. All scholarship money I receive will be placed directly into textbooks and housing. I recognize that I have a long journey, and a lot of work to do as well, therefore it is the little things that I enjoy the most. It is important to note that I appreciate the opportunity and your contribution would be of help. A wise man once told me " Zaire in order to get what you want you must first know what you want." Fortunate enough for me I was raised around individuals that bestowed intelligence into my mind at an early age. I understand that not everyone is given the opportunity I am being provided with to even apply for such a scholarship. It took many years for me to understand what I wanted however it was during my Junior year that i let my pride down and sought help from my father. Since you are sharing with me an opportunity to earn a scholarship I feel it is only right to share a piece of myself and my future goals.

Below you will find my post-high school educational and professional career goals. I was taught to be a very hardworking and determined son, student and player, and I challenge myself in all that I am willing to work for. I contribute leadership and dedication to the team, the school as well as within my family. My goal for college and professional career is to continue to perform academically, professionally as well as athletically. My confidence and strive to do the best for my own future is demonstrated in all three performances. I attend Faith Christian Academy in Orlando FL. I hold a 4.2 GPA. This past summer I was honored to be inducted into the National Society of High School Scholars. It is an achievement that I am truly proud of. I am also member of the National Honors Society within the School. My graduation year is 2020 and until then I plan on joining Student Council as a representative for the class of 2020. Academics are a very essential part of my family upbringing as well as the driving force that allows me to have a high expectation in attending one of the most prestige universities in the country. My ultimate goal after High School is to attend Stanford University. My professional goals I have planned out for my future is to achieve a degree in Business Administration while at the same time pursuing my dream of becoming a professional baseball player. Being part of Faith Christian Academy has developed leadership skills that will help carry me to the next level in life.

Performance skills, discipline and professionalism in and out of my home and the school is mandatory; I make sure my characte

Jacob I  on 1/22/2018 5:18:45 PM

I am a Senior at Angleton High School with a passion for understanding and improving automobiles, aircraft, and watercraft. To expand my knowledge and abilities, I plan to attend a University after I graduate High School. The only conflict in this endeavor is my financial circumstances. However, if I were awarded the scholarship you are offering, it would enable me to pursue my dream and accomplish my goals. During my Junior year, I founded an organization at my High School called Facta-Non-Verba which is latin for “Actions not words.” The organization was started for the purpose of showing appreciation and offering support services to veterans. The organization is nationally-recognized and schools from several states have chartered chapters of their own. Between the Facta-Non-Verba organization at Angleton High School and actively participating in Boy Scouts, I have accumulated a large number of service hours and made a positive impact on our community. Through becoming an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, this process has taught me to value the quality of character and the importance of service to others. I make every effort to live by the Scout oath and law on a daily basis. I also try to demonstrate leadership in doing a good turn daily and influence my peers to do the same. Thank you for your consideration of my application and I sincerely appreciate your generous gift of this scholarship whether I personally benefit directly from it or not.

My dad suffered an injury years ago, was off of work for a few years, went back to college, and just recently got a job at the hospital.

Going to college and achieving this dream will allow me to help my family.

Matthew D  on 8/3/2016 11:35:34 AM

After growing up in a military family all my life I have learned so much about responsibility, honor, and integrity. These attributes have impacted me in an amazing way, allowing me to move forward in life and not reflect on my past. I am a sophomore in college at Mount Vernon Nazarene University majoring in Biology Pre-medical. I currently have a 3.0 GPA and continuing to strive to reach my goals of becoming a successful doctor. I am currently paying for my tuition all on my own, loan free and debt free. In order to pay for school I have currently started my own photography business in order to pay for my schooling. If I was to receive this scholarship it would be a huge blessing to be able to continue attending school debt free and make my dreams come true. Thank you for your consideration:)

Forrest M  on 6/2/2016 11:53:35 AM

I am an older man-51-who has taken a few classes at junior college at the Community College of Denver to figure out what I was interested in and I did well- I currently have a 3.75 GPA. Unfortunately, I had some serious family related health issues on the west coast with my mother an I had to drop a few classes after the drop date and I owe a bill of approximately $1200.00. I broke my leg , had a blood infection so I couldn't pay the bill off. Now I am back to being very healthy and focused on certain academic disciplines and this scholarship would be of tremendous help to pay the bill and jump-start back into college. Thank you Eric M.

James G  on 5/31/2016 11:21:03 AM

After dropping out of college in 2011, I have learned a great deal about responsibility. I've had days where I didn't know where I was going to sleep, or what I was going to eat. I've worked full time in 4 different career fields just in hopes that something would fit. Now I've realized I will not be satisfied until I pursue a career in environmental science. I want to ensure a better planet for my neighbors and for generations to come. This scholarship will help me overcome the immense financial burden that comes with pursuing my dreams.

After college my plan is to become the first NFL Head Coach, and for my ability to do so, I have to start off helping coach college football, im doing this because I want to make a difference, and stand up to show young girls that we can do anything guys can do. Also to show that dont let discrimination get in the way of what you want to accomplish. I currently have a 3.0 gpa.

Dear JumpStart Scholarship team, my name is Michaela Gerhard and I am a junior at Derby High School in Derby, KS. I have a dream to go to college after I graduate to achieve a double major in Biology and Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry from a four year college. Something special about me is that while I am still in high school, I am also a freshman at Butler Community College. In 2017 I will be graduating with my associates degree a week before I receive my high school diploma. Butler Community College offers an Early College Health Science Academy that allows me to go to college full time while also attending high school. After I graduate I will have over 60 credit hours. I currently have a gpa of 3.95 and an accumulative gpa of 4.285. This scholarship would really help me out later on the road because I will be financially independent after I turn eighteen and all my college bills will be my responsibility. I am a hard worker and I plan to go to medical school to try and better the world the best I can.

I work hard on my breaks but I do need financial assistance to survive. I'm working hard in my nursing program and it is paying off. I want to help the world one person at a time, as a nurse professionally, and plan to do what I can on my off hours after graduation to do so. Please consider me for this scholarship.

Kenny P  on 12/6/2015 11:43:38 PM

My dream is to get an associates at Middlesex then a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice at Umass Lowell, which will open many job opportunities such as parole officer, police officer, child services, and juvenile court counselor for me. I love dealing with people and by working with other people less fortunate than myself. It gives me an opportunity to give back to my community. I want to help them move towards a positive direction in life. I see a lot of kids growing up with no role model and it is sad to see because every kid deserves guidance. Without any role models in their lives, they would most likely be pulled towards a criminal lifestyle. If I could turn one kid’s life around before it is too late, I would love to do so. Receiving the scholarship award will help me reach my dream on getting a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

I plan to switch my major when I declare Homeland Secure, I will continue onto medical research. Medical research is my next goal because I intend to search for a cure for currently incurable problems to cut the battle short. My phrase is, " The first step to any cure, is stopping the spread of the disease, bacteria, parasite, or virus." When no new person is infected with HIV/AIDS, even if myself and no one else finds a cure, time will be a cure 50-70 years from the first year no one else is infected.

I will find a way to continue my education it just may not be on my planned time table. Thanks!!

I hope to be one of the few that makes it, and I will do anything it takes to get there.

Samantha V  on 10/1/2015 12:43:21 PM

Hello, My name is Samantha V. I am a student who has made mistakes in the past and it led me to getting academically suspended for a year at my university. I took that as a wakening call and told myself I must do my absolute best to not only redeem myself from my mistakes, but to pursue a degree that I am proud of. During that suspension I went to community college and took course equivalency classes there and then took the necessary steps to get accepted back in my university. Of course I did come back, but my GPA was something to be ashamed about. But I pushed myself to get the best grades I could and understand the material that was being taught to me. Within a year, I managed to make the Dean's List at my university and bumped up my GPA enough for me to officially declare my double major. I can't sit here and say that I didn't cry when I began to realize how much my hard work has begun to pay off. But of course, with a double major, there comes more classes to take. I am seeking this scholarship in the hopes that it'll help me continue my education at the university that gave me a second chance in the hopes that I can graduate with a double-degree in the summer of 2018.

This scholarship would put me in a better situation on being able to pay for the books that maybe required for the classes I would have to take and even maybe be able to help with being able to pay for not necessary all of my rooming but some.

Hello my name is Marissa Tucker and I am currently a senior at Sonora High in La Habra, Ca. I am applying for this scholarship because I am planning on attending school for Law enforcement after high school. I am currently a volunteer at my local police department and would love to get more involved as an officer. This scholarship would help me out tremendously because I come from a family of seven kids and grew up with mainly my twin brother. I don't have enough money to get me where I want to be and I don't want my parents to have the pressure of paying for two college tuitions at once, therefore this scholarship would help me out so much. Thank you!!

Hello, my name is Jannica Sebastian. I am a freshman Nursing student at Harry S. Truman college. At first my wage was enough to pay for school. But since i started the program, I had to lessen the days of work due to schedule problems. The program requires a lot of resources and stuffs that costs a lot of money.

Hi my name is Anthony McClendon I am 30 years old from Detroit, MI my education means so much to me and my family even my other family members who are not here on this earth anymore.

I realize that there are many applicants who want this award and each and every one of them have a great reason why they want it. I have always been dependent on my parents, and I am thankful for all they have done for me. For 19 years my parents, my family, friends, and teachers have guided me through the right path in life. They have taught me and I have learned that the important values and resources of life on earth should not be taken for granted. And that our duty is to respect everything and everyone, and to never forget the beauty and love this world gives us. I believe that education should be used as tool to find our calling, and I really hope that with the help of this award it will help me further my education and get me the chance to give back to the world and the ones I love. Thank you.

Emily E  on 9/20/2015 2:33:34 PM

Hello there. My name is Emily Evans. I will be 18 October 3rd. I have grown up my entire life with my mom being a single parent. She sacrifices so much for me and puts me first in everything she does. Money has always been tight for her and my dad walking out on her before I was born, not giving anything to help, and not caring to pay child support or anything has been hard on us. She has worked very hard to get us where we are today. We live with my grandparents and they all want to see me succeed, as well as any other parent or family member would want to see. I want to become a dental hygienist. Winning this scholarship would mean so much to me and I would be greatly appreciated for it. Thank you!
