I felt devastated as I wrote an email to the program director saying that I wanted nothing more than to participate but I did not have the monetary means to finance my voyage. At the beginning of my junior year, I applied for another cultural exchange program with the eager desire of broadening my horizons, but I again lacked the financial means to fund my participation. Now that I have found a program that is in alignment with my current academic interests and my long-term career goals, I am determined to find the funding that will make my participation

Imagine that it’s summertime, year 1955 in Chicago. You are 14 years old and your uncle wants you to ride on a train with him and your cousins down south, Mississippi to be exact, because he has been asked to conduct a funeral. You are excited, not because of the funeral, but because you get to ride on a train with your family to a state you have never seen before. The very thought of spending any part of your summer in a new place, should not only excite you, your mind should be racing with anticipated joy of seeing a new place, meeting new people and experiencing new things. Towards the end of your trip, you should be anxious to return home, knowing that you will have lots of fun stories to tell your family and friends.

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. My mom and dad although divorced, have supported me through every event in my life, making me the person I am today. Living with my mom, I have learned how hard it really is to do things that my dad would have done in a heartbeat. As I grew up knowing that my dad was not coming back through the back door as I hoped, I learned how hard life really is and how life is not fair.

Good Evening Mr. Hallstrom, I hope you had a productive day. I have never had to write a graded email to a teacher; there is a first time for everything in a junior honors class. I am writing this email to discuss my academic life at Beckman High School. I feel that my time at Beckman High School has been very productive.
Many of my teachers remarked me as “reassuring”, and a lot of my friends have told me that “It seems that you’re so chilled but you actually know what you’re doing”. Yes, I was born with a phlegmatic personality, but it was not until last year when I “failed” the AMC (luckily I was still qualified for the AIME) that I started to learn how to manage time and resource wisely and actually grew up. I spent my first 14 years in my life in China, and in the summer 2013, I moved to US with my family, seeking for new challenges-- I’ve always believed that unfamiliar environment provokes one to learn the most. However though I thought I was prepared for the worst, things got out of hand, as how it goes every time one is put in a new wonder land. It didn’t take more than a month to surmount the language barrier, but
Travelling helps us to know more about different lifestyles, cultures, cuisines and festivals. Visiting new sights and exploring new places increases our knowledge and widens our global perspective. We get to learn so many things about different cultures and customs. It makes us open minded and gives us a new viewpoint about life and it also changes some of our bad habits.
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.

For those with the means, travel has become a lifestyle. Barriers like language are disappearing with the advent of smart translation apps. Cheap flights are empowering time-short travelers to jet off for weekends.
