My contribution to the mission of Nurse Corps Scholarship Program will not be limited to the help in which is needed. It has always been my desire to help others. Working in the medical field now as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant, and as a Direct Care worker for the mentally disabled has trained me to face many different challenges with the correct approach. Also as a Licensed Evangelist Missionary, in my Christian belief, I have had the opportunity to work in the communities helping others in the time of need. With all that I have seen and learned through my work experience and through the church, I will be able to contribute the love, the nurturing, and the comforting of the individual in need while providing the care
Being a Cook Children’s nurse resident has been a dream of mine since I started nursing school. I feel that the nurse residency at Cook Children’s will aid in transitioning me from being a novice nurse to becoming a more confident and competent nurse. I wish to be a Cook Children/’s nurse resident because I want to take part in the preparation that is received to facilitate the shift that is needed to provide excellence in quality and safety in extraordinary care.
Going to college is probably one of the most important things that I have done in my life so far. Thinking back to everything I have done in the past ten years or so, I can see that taking to leap of faith to join college and further my education was such a huge step for me and I am glad that I did. Before I joined Southern New Hampshire University, I knew I would need some motivation to enroll. I remember a story my father told me about how he had gone to Technical College and became a licensed Master Mechanic and that really motivated me to want to further my education. Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree.
It will give me a great head start, financially. I have always been curious if scholarships would be enough help to pay for my education. I said to myself, “Get good grades to get scholarships and it will not be as hard because I will have the financial help I need. There will not be a reason to say I cannot do it because I know how hard it is to get the financial help for college.” I strive to be a student who tries hard to learn and obtain as much as possible, this student is who I will be because of this amazing scholarship I have been awarded with.
Ever since I was a young child I knew I had one dream I wanted to turn into a realty. Some kids would answer when asked what they wanted to be when they grew up where, “An artist,” “A princess,” “Rich and famous.” But at that age, I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician. Saving lives and helping children was a dream I wanted to turn into a reality. At a young age, I was taught to work hard for anything you wanted to achieve. During high school, I studied and was an active member in the community. Receiving the scholarship from the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus meant that I was on the right track to being successful. Receiving the scholarship meant a lot because it felt rewarding to know my hard work and determination had paid off. Not only
I firmly believe that i deserve this award granted by the Courage to Grow Scholarship. Education is greatly important to me and my future. No one in my family has ever attended college and I know that I can change that. I may come from a poor family but it is my goal to be successful in the career i choose.
Since I only live with my mom,and she just has one job to pay all of our bills, paying for college is far from our minds. Even though my mom has worked hard to give me everything I needed and supported me all my life, she just doesn’t have enough to afford the privilege of me going to college. But with the help of this scholarship, I might be able to get a college education. If I get this scholarship,I promise that I will not leave it to waste. I will apply this scholarship to help me in my first years at TMCC. This scholarship will be the backbone of my college education as I will start off with the
I should be considered for the Kaiser Permanente Health Care Scholarship because I have proved and accomplished more than what I thought I would be capable of in my education, I am passionate for the health industry, and I financially need to be to succeed. I will continue my education by pursuing my goal to become a Registered Nurse. I first considered Registered Nursing when I joined the Health Academy and realized how passionate I was to help others. Throughout my years in the Health Academy, my passion grew drastically. My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours). These internships helped me get an inside perspective of how nurses go above and beyond their everyday duties to ensure patient care, setting a standard for me to go above and beyond in terms of my education, my service to others, and in life. With the changes in college tuition having increased and state support for college students having taken a decrease over the last couple of years, this scholarship would benefit me tremendously in my goals to continue my education.
As a first generation student to attend college from a family of seven, the journey to a higher education has been arduous and overwhelming. My family gives me all the encouragement I need and are very optimistic about pursuing a higher degree. Unlike myself, my parents did not have the opportunity to attend college. My parents were born and raised in a small town in Mexico where the highest level of education they received was fifth grade. I have worked since I was 14 years old to support my parents with bills, and also saving for college and my own vehicle. I have not had any interruptions during my education, because I was able to balance work, babysitting, studying, and attending class on time. Although I managed not having any interruptions
Based on my experiences, I have proved that I am versatile. It’s still kind of hard. Moving, especially the road trips I have been on, have made me fall in love with the environment and life. I’ve been exposed to many types of people and cultures. These experiences have made me even more religious too. How this scholarship will help me...well a little goes a long way. Everyone knows that college is really expensive. This scholarship will help me pay for textbooks, classes, etc. This scholarship will reduce a financial burden on me and my parents. I have two younger siblings who will be attending college, so this scholarship will definitely help out. I will take out student loans and this scholarship will help reduce that or will help me not take out any loans at
Thousands of people who graduate high school consider the option of going straight into the work force or going to college to further your education. However some don’t consider college because of the cost of tuition. College is worth the expense of tuition because even though student loan debt and tuition can be a problem there are ways out of that situation.
Receiving the Coolidge Scholarship will make a tremendous difference in my life. I've always wanted to go to a high ranking college since I was a kid. And since college fees has been on constant increase, it's more difficult to pay for college. It's not that I won't apply for the FAFSA and other kinds of loans; it's just that I don't want to live most of my youth life paying off college loans. According to an article by US news, "Student Loan Expectations: Myth vs. Reality," "the standard repayment plan for federal student loans puts borrowers on a 10-year track to pay off their debt, but research has shown the average bachelor's degree holder takes 21 years to pay off his or her loans. Under federal income-based repayment options, remaining
I always give my absolute best and apply myself wholeheartedly. I have learned that trials produce perseverance and endurance. It is essential to be determined and I will keep striving to be the best I can be. I have proven I can excel academically while having an academic load and I handle obstacles with a positive outlook. I feel I am a well-rounded individual and I hold an optimistic perspective on life because life is too short to do otherwise. I admire your generosity and humbled to even be considered for this scholarship. I am thankful for people who give unselfishly to someone else’s aspirations and it is very heartwarming when someone does. I will continue to carry on the same kindness and thank you for assisting fellow students in achieving their goals in
Bridgette Nicole once said, “One of the most courageous decisions you’ll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.” As a 10-year-old kid going through a divorce, my life felt that it was crumbling. My dad and I had a very close relationship, but after my parents got a divorce, I lost a lot of time getting to see him. Life without a parent can shape a life that was unexpected. I am the best candidate for this scholarship because I have experienced a hard and unwanted event, but I have grown from it and become a better and stronger person because of my parents, which will help me power through college and become a civil lawyer.
This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for students of GVSU, and I am honored to be considered for this scholarship. I believe that I am a great applicant for this scholarship, and that I deserve this scholarship. One reason I deserve this scholarship is because of my strong academic courses. Throughout my high school career, I pushed myself academically by taking a total of 10 AP classes and 7 honors classes. These classes were all challenging, yet I pushed through with determination to complete the classes to the best of my ability. My high school is highly competitive and I’m grateful that I was surrounded by such wonderful peers and teachers. Completing high school, I received 12th place out of almost 450 students, with a weighted GPA of 4.244. Despite my hard course load,
