I am applying for this scholarship because my other scholarship is about to run out, and I can not afford school out of pocket. I really do not want to go into debt with student loans.

I'm applying to become an architectural designer. But most importantly, if I get into a great university I want to be sure my parents are financially stable over anything else.

I am the eldest of three children and a fourth who did not make it. My parents are both Army veterans and disabled. Though they have been taking care of my college expenses thus far, they have run into some financial challenges that may affect my stay at college. I am simply seeking whatever means possible to empower my future in making my way as an adult. My degree is in Interior Design and my desire is to design living spaces for family homes as well commercial spaces.

The topic is unfair....

One of the most important things in life is to make your parents proud. As a senior, I have promised my father a FULL scholarship to most of the colleges that I have applied to. I work strenuously every day to meet this goal, but it is difficult to expect much as an international student. However, I am confident in my application to the scholarship award. I want to make my parents proud.

Clayton D  on 11/14/2019 12:33:50 PM

I want to go to college without debt. I have already been enrolled in the community college while in high school to decrease the amount of time it will take to get my degree.

Brianna D  on 11/14/2019 8:43:04 AM

I am applying for this scholarship because my family is not financially able to help me pay for college. I will have to pay my own way through college. This scholarship would greatly benefit me because I am a first gen and neither of my parents have went to college. I would use this money to help pay my way through college. Thank you for your time.

Letasiilemiliona F  on 11/13/2019 1:09:51 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because my parents can not help pay my way through college, I will be paying my own way through college.

Simon S  on 11/11/2019 10:52:00 PM

My reason for applying for this scholarship is to use it towards a major in animal medicine and zoology because of climate change and human interference many animals have lost their homes and families, this is something I myself feel obligated to make a difference in by helping animals in need.

Michael L  on 10/30/2019 2:26:27 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I want to show my parents I am responsible, hardworking and taking my education serious. I study very hard so that I can get high enough grades to be accepted into one of top ranked schools. Hard work in school is the first step to getting into college being able to pay for it keeps you there. I am applying for scholarships to be able to contribute to financing my college education and not have my parent bare the full burden for me.

rushanna c  on 10/29/2019 11:21:44 PM

I just recently got to change my status from dependent to independent on fasfa due to my abusive mother who not only abused me physically but mentally. I can barley afford school now and can really use the help

Meghan B  on 10/24/2019 1:33:34 PM

To whom it may concern, I am applying for this scholarship because I am a 20-year-old who is paying for living independently. My mom cannot afford to help and my father abandoned me when he found out he had cancer. I work and attend school full time. I have a house to run and a family to take care of. Please consider me as a recipient of this scholarship because I desperately need financial assistance to become a teacher. Thank you for your consideration.

rebeca e  on 10/23/2019 9:18:17 PM

"Winners never quit" was what my parent told me when I was told by people that I would never be happy again and could be in my room crying the rest of my life. I have learned through my life, I am a winnner! My life purpose is to influence, impact and give to families and orphans all the help. I will support families in need of assistance and help people solve with problems everyday lives. My love for learning and for my family has instilled in me determination to not let any circumstance stop me from reaching my dreams. Unfortunately, without a scholarship I will not be able to attend college because my family is financially unable to help me. This scholarship will give me the chance to realize my dream to become a social worker.

Brooke B  on 10/23/2019 12:00:14 PM

Hello, my name is Brooke. I am applying for this scholarship for financial help so I can attend college. I have always wanted to become some form of writer, but my all-time goal is to become a scriptwriter. With this scholarship, it would help me immensely with saving money so I am not in debt after I get out of college. I plan to go to a college around my hometown which is located in Pennsylvania, and possibly transfer after a few years. This scholarship will assist me in becoming the best journalist or writer I could ever be, Thank you for your time.

Daina D  on 10/10/2019 9:05:08 PM
