Up until now, two things have been the dominant themes in my life—computer and community service. Since a very young age, I have become fascinated by computers. Learning to use a laptop at age six, I soon became the “computer expert” in my household. Throughout middle school, I took my fair share of computer classes. Although time-consuming, building computers taught me many problem-solving skills from my numerous failed attempts. Despite the many setbacks, I have never given up on any project and always figured out a way to complete it. Over time, I developed a strong interest in engineering—building things from scratch, planning, designing, assembling, making mistakes, revising, testing, and completing the project. This past summer, I started an internship at the North Carolina State University in the laboratory of the renowned professor, Dr. Fuh- Gwo Yuan, in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department. Tasked with creating and improving scientific diagrams for the presentations by Dr. Yuan and his team, I personally learned from Dr. Yuan the diverse functions of the scientific diagrams. Moreover, I was able to apply the aerospace concepts Dr. Yuan taught me in the astronomy class that I subsequently took in my high school. As a result of this internship, I gained a bird’s eye view of engineering research as well as exposure to different ways in which real-world problems are solved. Encouraged by this valuable experience, I then decided to further explore technology by building a computer on my own. Rather than rushing right into the building process, which could have been disastrous considering the complexity of the computer, I first spent two months patiently reading relevant books and drew diagrams to better understand the inner workings of the machine. During the building process, I encountered various problems with the components, some being faulty and overheating. After further research on the Internet, I discovered a specific type of therma

I love this topic because you can personalize this essay with your own passions. I think this is a wonderful opportunity for high school students to be able to pursue their dream.

Alex V  on 4/16/2018 7:53:07 PM

These are the types of scholarships I really enjoy because they allow you to express yourself in a personal way. They allow you to tell a story that only you can tell and to do it in your own style. Scholarships with strict guidelines have their advantages such as knowing exactly what to write, but I personally feel more likely to do better on a scholarship when I'm writing about myself because I feel like I'm making a connection. A huge thanks and much appreciation goes out to the people offering this scholarship!

Mariyah N  on 4/15/2018 10:18:16 AM

I really believe this is a great scholarship opportunity for all high school students. I intend on applying, I'm not sure I'll win but this offers a great chance. Thank you so much!
