Growing up, I have always loved to help people in need, so when I entered high school I put all of my focus towards medical classes. My experience with medical classes were amazing. I performed so well that I was able to pass the Clinical Medical Assistant Certification exam. When it came to choosing a college, I had originally planned to leave Laredo to study pharmacology. However, to my surprise and joy, I found out that TAMIU started to offer the degree plan of my choice, so I decided to stay in Laredo and attend TAMIU. The Oscar M. Laurel Scholarship will be a huge help to fund my tuition, books, and gas. Coming from a middle class family, I understand that every cent counts and this scholarship will be a great help to insure my
I believe I am the best candidate for this scholarship because of my dedication to become a good radiation therapist. I have been dedicated to becoming a radiation therapist ever since my dad received radiation therapy when I was in high school. Because of this dedication to become a radiation therapist and help cancer patients the way my dad’s radiation therapists helped him I will always work my hardest to achieve that goal. I also believe I am the best candidate because I am extremely persistent, and I don’t allow setbacks and failures to stop me from achieving my goals. I take pride in my ability to learn from my mistakes and improve in the future. Winning this scholarship would greatly help me reduce some of the stress due to the high
I am writing to apply for your two scholarships, Christian College Scholarship and the Child Care Scholarship. The field that I am looking into is pre-med and child development. I found out these scholarships through my school guidance counselor.
I would like to express my thanks to the Buster Bynum Education Scholarship for allowing me the opportunity for financial assistance through your scholarship program. Being the second child in my family to attend college, I know that college can be expensive. At the age of seventeen, I am the youngest of six children. I learned from my family that they will give me all the love in the world, but when it comes to money I have to earn it. For the past three years I’ve earned my gas and spending money working a part-time job laying sod for Mid-South Enterprises LLC. I am confident that my parents will help as much as they possibly can financially, but with the assistance from scholarships my out of pocket tuition cost can be less.
I am in a position where I am having difficulty finding the resources I need to finish my degree. I took about a year off from working to take care of my chronically ill father. In addition, I have recently been through a divorce and have a three year old child that I’m supporting. My income is not where it needs to be to say the least. I am also in a position where I don’t have a lot of federal aid in loans left to pay for school. A scholarship would help me to stretch the last of my aid to pay for my education. I would be putting a scholarship to great use and it would allow me to focus more on my education and be the best that I can be. I know that I will get through school one way or the other and that I will give back to Cox and the city of Springfield for taking a chance on me and helping me with my education. Springfield is my home and I plan on working as nurse at Cox for many years to come. A scholarship granted to me would help me to become a nurse and would be served back to the community through the skills that I will have gained through my education. I would be very grateful to receive a scholarship and would make sure that any scholarship granted to me was not wasted. I made the dean’s list fall 2014 and have been keeping good grades. I hope that Cox will consider be as a good candidate to receive one because I have great passion, have a passion to
I am applying to Jassac Charitable Foundation Scholarship. I have big dreams to fill when it comes to my future aspirations as a social worker. I have known since I was about the age twelve that I wanted a career in the helping profession. My mother always opened our home to the homeless and unfortunate. I have an aunt and uncle who are social workers and has spent the majority of their life serving the unjust population. Also, growing up I saw my mother struggle as a single parent so that her family can have basic human needs. This situation, assist me to see that women, minors, and the elderly population need someone to advocate for them so that they can empower themselves and progress to better choices.
I will say I am like most young and modern American women: school is my main priority, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen and I don’t expect for anyone to do the hard work for me. I come from what is known as a normal background within the African American culture, my parents are in the process of getting a divorce, I live with my mother and three brothers. So, what exactly makes Ayana Graham different? Why does Ayana Graham deserve this scholarship over other applicants? What makes me different from other applicants is how I occupy my time away from my academics. I purposely seek volunteer work, such as The Jumpstart Program, sock and coat drives, bake sales, The Giving Point, feeding the homeless and
The beginning of my freshman year of high school I realized that unless I got a job right after I turned 16 I wouldn’t be able to pay for college so I needed to start making steps in the right direction now. I started working at McDonald’s my sophomore year of high school four months after I turned 16 and continued to work there until I graduated from Polk Collegiate High School. A friend told me about Polk Collegiate High School the beginning of my sophomore year and I knew that it would be the best financial choice that I could make at the moment. I spent the last two years of my
I am very grateful that the Trustees of the Harold Ferguson Scholarship have approved the renewal of the Harold Ferguson scholarship. The Harold Ferguson Scholarship will help me greatly in my upcoming sophomore year at Rutgers due to the nature of my classes and therefore am very appreciative. I apologize for not including my current address, which is: 105 Gregory Avenue Apt. D-10, Passaic, NJ, 07055. Furthermore, I feel disadvantaged as a result of my lack of volunteering experience this past year and understand the importance of giving back to the community; hence, I will soon start volunteering at Clara Maass Medical Center in Bellevile, NJ (currently in the application process) on a weekly basis to gain experience for my future in medicine
I deserve the Bear State Bank scholarship for three reasons. Reason number one is that my parents have been valued customers of Bear State Bank for over 18 years. I am currently a customer of the Bear State Bank . Reason number two is that I have a 3.9 GPA. Reason number three is that I am a hard worker. I need the Bear State Scholarship for many reasons. I want to get a degree in nursing. I want to reduce the cost of going to college . I want to be a smart investor by not taking out student loans . I promise that the money from this scholarship will be used wisely to help with the cost of college . The scholarship will be greatly appreciated .
Preparing for my journey through medical school has not been easy for my family and I. As cliché as it may be for some to talk about their “broke college student” experience, it is a very harsh reality for many in my situation. While others who suffer financial hardships qualify for federal and state financial aid, I do not qualify for any type of governmental aid due to being an immigrant. That leaves me with only access to academic scholarships and private loans. To pay for the fees at GEMS, I will once again have to recur to those resources and a part time job if time allows.
My parents moved to the United States from Haiti in order to provide my brother and I a better life. As their oldest child, I will be the first in our family to attend college, and get a bachelor’s degree. Ever since 2008 my mother has not found a stable job. This causes my family’s budget to be tight, and therefore I don’t have a sufficient amount of funds to cover for my future college education. Receiving financial aid will allow me to go to the university of my choice, without getting into debt. Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to discussing my opportunities with
As I finish up my first year of medical school at TTUHSC, continued scholarship support will help me focus on my medical studies during my second year and decrease my eventual loan burden when I am a practicing physician. Also, I am currently a dual degree MD/MBA student, and as I receive my two degrees, I know that the value I receive from the knowledge gained would be put to greater use with the scholarship and the financial support that it provides. I greatly appreciate the support that TTUHSC SOM and the generous alumni provide to all of its students.
I have always dreamed of making a larger difference in my community by helping others to recover from their illnesses and by pursuing a career in the medical field, but I have never truly had the chance to do so because of my limitations. Being the youngest in my family, I have many older sisters to look up to and to learn from. I have learned from their successes and failures and created my own opinions based on the knowledge that I gain. A scholarship would allow me to gain insight in the field of healthcare to put me on the path of doing greater things. Furthermore, it would open up many opportunities to me and allow me to put my best foot forward by being a leader. If I do not receive a scholarship to attend the program, I believe that
