I am a graduating Junior at Discovery High School. I've spend about a year and a half in school due to medical issues my freshman year and horrendous events that caused me to drop out my sophomore year of high school. My goal is to go to Oregon State University to work towards and receive a Doctorates degree to become a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) or to Washington State University to study to be an attorney in Family Law. I work two part time jobs, go to school, and volunteer in my community for about five hours weekly. I am concerned that I will not be able to save enough money achieve my goals and help people on a greater scale and give back to my community.

First things first, I want to thank Niche and their scholarship committee for alleviating the stress load with a no essay entry,for all of us student that are applying for this scholarship opportunity. This is the beginning of my junior year as a Communications major at California State University East Bay. With desires to graduate next year finances have fallen short for me this year especially due to my Father's medical conditions, I've taken responsibility to try and take care of any finances my mom needs help with but overtime it has had a setback on my education finances. This opportunity would eliminate a huge burden not only mentally but financially, to make sure I stay on track with graduation, and pursuing my career. Thank you for this opportunity.

Olivia T  on 10/21/2018 1:53:09 PM

I am fifty-eight years old, and I have been disabled for over sixteen years. I have completed eight years of school and have gained an AA in Psychology, Interdisciplinary Studies: Social And Behavioral Sciences, and an AA in Social Sciences. I am a Phi Theta Kappa member and I graduated with great distinction. I have a strong desire to continue my education and gain a BA and further to a Masters in Psychology. This scholarship will enable me to go forward and complete my higher education requirements. I feel that with the right education and desire I would greatly be able to give back to the community in a way that would help widely with those who are challenged in progressing in living conditions.

Gabe Moreno  on 8/23/2018 5:20:11 PM

I'm a senior at the University of Utah. I will major in Strategic Communication and I really hope I am selected for this scholarship as it would help me tremendously. I think it's great that there are entities, groups, and foundations like the ones listed on this website that are actively giving back by helping fund the education of some many aspiring change-makers. I hope that I can one day be able to give back in the same magnitude. In the meantime, I'm going to keep looking for scholarships because I don't, I won't be able to graduate!

Michelle Parra  on 8/21/2018 11:31:14 PM

Princess W.  on 7/26/2018 2:58:15 PM

I am a 16 year old High school graduate, moving along to achieve a nursing bachelor's degree. Upon finishing High school so fast, every thing seems to be happening at once and every penny counts. I was never offerd much help from my own high school becuase I did graduate so early. I really appreciate the simplicity of scholarships like these becuase of the amount of time saved with no essay required. So a big thanks to Niche and the Scholarship Committee!

Kayla Lee  on 7/21/2018 12:00:26 AM

Most of these comments are basically saying the same thing. We all need scholarships and Grant's to get us through college. We all know college is expensive and all of us want to be debt free after we graduate. I need these scholarships because I know that it is pretty hard to get those full ride scholarships and I dont want to stress myself out further worrying. With these scholarships, I can buy a car to get me back and forth to my family and not have to worry about them picking me up 3 hours away from home. I need these scholarships so that I can learn how to not depend on my parents and to better myself as a new coming adult. To get myself ready for my career and to be my own person.

Harley Dominique  on 7/19/2018 7:12:19 AM

I would like to thank you in advance for considering and selecting me this scholarship.

Hello, I am currently applying for scholarships in hopes of continuing my education at Penn Foster College. I am majoring in Health Care Management and I am also done with the first semester, but my account got suspended due to insufficient funds. I hope to win this scholarship so that I can continue my studies at Penn Foster College, in hopes that one day I will be able to manage and build my own hospital to help those who are in desperate need of healthcare in Africa.

Nicole B  on 6/5/2018 9:01:54 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because before I decided to go to college, I always dreamed of becoming a United States Marine. I got in touch with a recruiter when I was just about to turn 17, and I was in the delayed entry program for a whole year, until, a couple months before I was supposed to ship out to recruit training, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor and epilepsy. My whole life came to a slamming halt. Now, after a notable amount of time and thought, I have decided to start Pre-Med to become a Pediatric Oncologist. However, we don't have the money for it, so this scholarship would be an excellent help for me to start on on the right foot, financially. Thank You.

Alyssa S.  on 6/1/2018 7:34:11 PM

Hello! Im a graduated high schooler who's been trying throughout my senior to get scholarships. I've struggled to earn some but, alas, have earned none.

This scholarship would help me immensely to get where I dream to be in my life.

Kayla F  on 5/24/2018 1:56:23 PM

Hello! I'm a college transfer student applying for this scholarship, in hopes of continuing my education when I start my new fall semester at University. While I am currently pursuing a BFA in either Animation or Graphics Design, I have only recently considered becoming a teacher or college professor one day. Perhaps I can also impact other lives around the world too, even through storytelling! Regardless, I want to help others reach their potential because it's something I value myself. I hope, with the help of this scholarship, I can positively influence other individuals, starting with my community and branching out as I continue my academic endeavors.

arianna S  on 5/21/2018 7:45:41 AM

I applied for this scholarship because it will help with my financial aid towards college. Growing up I always dreamed of going to a college and experiencing the late night study groups, joining a frat and becoming sisters for life, and just making new friends around the world. Watching my sister go has made me want to go even more! however, my parents took out a large amount of money for my sister to go to college, and of course, it's impacting me because we are only 1 year apart. I don't want my parent to be in a substantial amount of debt just to continue my education and i KNOW this scholarship will be a big help. thank you

William H  on 5/20/2018 12:24:06 AM

I graduated high school in 2015. I have spent this time trying to save money for college and the rug keeps getting pulled out from under me.
