After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers. Unfortunately, I have noticed that not all students in my peer group are able to finish college. “Nearly one out every five students in America drop out of college by the first semester.” There are three main reasons for teenagers dropping out, them being: financial issues, academic struggles, and another simply being to start a career. Firstly, college as well all know is quite expensive and is continuously increasing in price.
On the off chance that an understudy has 10 hours of class every week and puts in the suggested four hours of study for every hour of class, then competitors burn through 50 hours every week concentrating on and going to compulsory classes and study lobbies. This implies school competitors need to work 90 hours for every week just to stay in school on their grant. This is the proportional to working two all day occupations with a side employment on the weekends just to pay their bills. Another great reason why college athletes should be paid is because it would only make the sport more competitive. On the off chance that the NCAA paid its competitors, the understudies would not need to include additional anxiety agonizing over where they will get their cash from.
But my decision is final, so I shifted to nursing even though I’m incoming 3rd year in my Computer Science course and shifting to nursing means I will be 1st year again. I understand the reason why my father is not agreeing on my decision at that time. He feels that I wasted 2 years of my college at the same time he can’t afford nursing in case my aunt change her mind. My family is poor but my father believe that education is the only treasure he can give that no one else can take. Despite of everything, I enrolled in nursing for first semester.
Their schedule also includes a full-time college schedule that they must maintain if they want to stay in the school and continue playing college sports. If a student has 10 hours of class each week and puts in the recommended four hours of study for each hour of class, then athletes spend 50 hours each week studying and attending mandatory classes and study halls….This means that college athletes have to work 90 hours per week just to remain in school on their scholarship. This is the equivalent to working two full-time jobs with a side job on the weekends just to pay their bills.” (Top 10 Reasons College Athletes Should Be Paid) Now many people would wonder why they are working so hard and players are working this hard is due to the fact they are so close to the pro league that giving up now would just be throwing everything they have strived for down the
According to Newberry, the average cost a year of undergraduate studies at a private university now tops $21,000. He said, “multiply that by four years, then by two or three children.” (85) Now that is an eye opener, for one student to take on a four-year college degree they would owe around $84,000 and that is a copious amount of money. When students have to pay for their own tuition some are juggling school work on top of a job so they can pay off student loans while going to school. Free college tuition

It was there that my grandfather became an altar boy, played on several sports teams, and met his childhood friends. He thoroughly enjoyed being an altar boy and singing in the church choir as a creative outlet, and loved sports for the active, physical aspects. My grandfather described his early childhood as happy, with his parents being strict enough to guide him in a positive direction, yet lenient enough to let him be his own person. He attributes his success and happiness in his childhood to the fact that, with his mother being a stay at home mom, she was able to dedicate her time and resources to my grandfather and his siblings, ensuring that they did well in school, ate healthy meals, went to church, and participated in other social
I am working hard to achieve my goal of moving out of my household to be in a stress-free environment for my four years of college. Ever since I had a job, I’ve been putting half of my earnings from every paycheck towards my college savings; the other half goes towards making sure me and my brother have adequate food, clothing, and whatever else we need that my parents can’t
Never would they have imagined going to school let alone attending college but because of them I was able to attend school, graduate high school, and attend college. Because of them I had the amazing opportunity to be born in one of the greatest countries in the world and study to become anything or anyone I wanted to be. Because of them and with the help of the Clark Construction Field Scholarship I am able to pursue a degree in Special Elementary education with a minor in Human services and speech pathology and audiology. Without being awarded the scholarship for the past two years my parents and I wouldn’t be able to afford tuition and I wouldn 't be able to pursue a degree. I am not sure what the future may hold for me but I do know that if I am awarded the scholarship again I will be able to continue my pursue a degree so I can accomplish all my dreams and give back to my parents at least half of what they gave

How would a scholarship help you attend UW-Stevens Point? My parents are requiring that I pay 50% of my college education. They believe this will give me more ownership in my college education but also an appreciation for the financial commitment earning a degree is going to take. I currently am working a part-time job and I am saving as much money as I can and I plan on applying for financial aid. I am somewhat concerned about the amount of debt I will incur and would like to keep that to a minimum.
I will have to go to college for 2 plus years or 120 creditable hours to be rewarded my degree (Veterinarian Careers/ Vet Tech Careers). Since I am an out of state student my education will cost a little over $12,000 not counting food expenses and housing (Tarleton State). I plan on getting a job while I am away at college and attending rodeos to help pay for my college, along with the scholarships I hope to
Explain any special circumstances including sources of income or hardship that you believe are not reflected in your FAFSA. (159/250) Even though I believe that my financial situation is accurately represented by the information provided in my FAFSA, paying for college is still an enormous hurtle considering students pay tens of thousands of dollars when earning their degrees. While my parents have planned ahead to be a major financial component in my education, scholarships and other sources of income will play an equally important role to pay for the long education process that lies behind earning a Ph.D. Not only have I been rigorously applying for scholarships over the course of my senior year, but I also have the option to use the skills I 've learned in high school to help finance my education by tutoring German and teaching Clarinet. Despite this, scholarships still play the most important role in financing my education because they offer me the immediate financial support needed to approach my
