During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them.
Other schools have offered me more money due to the combination of my scores, National Merit Semifinalist standing, and talents. Recently, I have won first place in the mathematics portion of both my county and regional science fair with a statistical analysis of racial bias in media advertisements. Unfortunately, I could not attend the state conference due to a combination of my school’s Model United Nations and church responsibilities. Returning to my financial issues, my father has recently started working for the church for free and he is no longer being paid. We are sustaining on a combination of my job and my mother’s nursing job, but in order to become more qualified, both of my parents will be returning to school for a master’s degree.
However, my plans can only become possible with the help of the Norwalk Community College Foundation. The NCC Foundation made it possible for me to graduate in a two year frame; it enabled me to take more classes during winter and summer break without having to worry about how I would afford these courses. Nonetheless, I am independently working my way through college without financial assistance from my parents and family members who also face financial crisis. However, the LEAP Transfer Scholarship would substantially allow me not only to focus on learning, but also to graduate in the spring of 2018 with a Bachelor 's degree.
The Bellmead Chamber of Commerce is an essential scholarship that I must receive to further my education. When I was a little over five years old I lost my father in a horrifying car accident. Since then, my mother had to raise six children on her own. When my father passed away my mother later on began struggling financially to pay for all our family’s necessities.
Thank you Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation donors for the scholarship grant. Because of your generous donations scholarship recipients like myself, are given a higher chance of success in college from the financial help. I am deeply grateful for the Marine Corps Scholarship foundation for finding me satisfactory and will use the grant provided to further succeed in college. My father has been in the military a little more than twenty years, more than the 21 years I have been alive.
I have always enjoyed teaching people and helping them learn so that they can succeed in school. I got involved with tutoring through National Honor Society and the A+ Scholarship Program. With National Honor Society there is many service opportunities that I am able to be involved in and I do as many as possible, but tutoring homebound has always been what I've prefered to do. This is very important to me because many of these students aren't in class to learn directly from a teacher so things can become confusing fairly quickly and I like to be there to help as much as I am able to. Even at times when it is something that I am not proficient in it becomes a learning experience for me as well as the student I am tutoring.
I would first like to thank the selection committee of the Van Buren Athletics Booster Scholarship for considering my application for this prestigious award. I am very proud of my accomplishments throughout high school. I earned my first varsity letter as a freshman on the Girls Golf Team. Since then, I have earned three subsequent letters and various other accolades. I received NWOGGL Rookie of the Year, which was based on my individual scores and a vote from the coaches in the league.
Being such an active member, and juggling school along with a part time job at Pizza Hut, I was fortunate enough to get two scholarships from the FFA Alumni Association. These accomplishments and the money awarded are helping me pay for the books I’m using in college today. My hard work as an FFA member and officer had definitely paid
As I have to pay for all of my college expenses myself, a scholarship of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Receiving a scholarship would assist me in not only paying for my education but, giving me motivation to continue earning high grades. Knowing that I have support from an organization and that they want me to succeed with earning my degree would certainly motivate me to keep up my great academic progress. That is because I wouldn’t want to let that organization
There is an old Moorish proverb that reads, “He who does not travel, does not know the value of man.” That quote resonates deep within me because I have a yearning to use my education to empower those in need. In order to do so, I need to see and experience the world outside of the one I am accustomed to. Curiosity is one of the traits that define the person that I am; because of this trait I always ask questions about the world around me and the people I meet. This is one of the driving forces behind my desire to venture outside of the United States to learn a new language and culture.
As I begin my college education, I want to continue doing my best in order to accomplish my goal of becoming a registered nurse. With the scholarship money I can have the peace of mind of solemnly focusing on college. Students who have to work to continue their education have trouble focusing on school and do not have the extra time to study or go to tutoring sessions. In many cases, having to work while attending college usually leads to failing or dropping the class due to extra stress and the idea of income. As well, this scholarship will give me more time to focus on my education and to continue my volunteer work helping the

Students in the criminal justice department are taught that our main objective in the justice system and our careers is to serve and also protect those involved in our community. For as long as I can remember, my goal in life has been to provide service by protecting and serving those who are close to me. My penchant for service is what eventually led me to the Criminal Justice program at Valdosta State University. This passion for service began at a very young age when my life was turned upside down when I relocated from Puerto Rico to the state of Georgia due to a tragic car accident that led to the end of my father’s life. This sudden change of lifestyle and heartbreak came with an extreme amount of struggle and culture shock not just
“Our hopes for a more just, safe, and peaceful world can only be achieved when there is universal respect for the inherent dignity and equal rights of all members of the human family.” – UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka Throughout my life, I have never been completely decisive on a career path. However, in the last few years I have realized that my passion for human rights advocacy is my natural calling which I am destined to pursue. As I entered my first year of college at the University of Maryland – College Park, I took a specific interest in a group known as Consult Your Community. The organization allows undergraduate students to engage with low-income and minority-owned small businesses to provide pro bono consulting services.
My parents always stressed how we should do our best and have to work for the things we want. Growing up I learned this doesn’t come easy. As everything college is upon us I have reflected on these principles and pondered how I will come up with the money for my college education. The clear cut answer is scholarships. You will see in this essay that I am a worthy candidate for this scholarship.
