I want to help research and design robotic prosthetics that provide more natural movements and the sense of touch. Movement is one of the challenges that affect people with missing limbs the most. Having the ability to stand, walk, reach, and grab are tasks that do not come easy for them. They will always need assistance. Being on our high school robotics team, we built robots that could lift, throw, and grab objects. I would love to make robotic devices to help disabled people live normal lives. I recently had the opportunity to visit a facility for wounded soldiers at Ft Sam, TX. We learned how they fit and customize prosthetic arms and legs for the soldiers and how they benefit
Coming from a poor family, money has always been sacred. My father lost his job due to a disability and my mother stays at home taking care of my autistic brother. I work at a part time restaurant three days a week which is not nearly enough for college expenses. In my graduating year of high school, I earned above average grades which helped me to receive enough financial aid to attend a higher end college such as Indiana University of Bloomington. I am the only one in my immediate family to attend college so this past year has been a blessing. However, in order to reach my goals of working in the music industry my family and I alone are not able to supply the funds to follow my dreams. This scholarship will help me advance my learning opportunities
I believe that I should be awarded this scholarship because I come from a background in which my parents did not go far with education. This has made life hard for my family and myself. My mother is unable to work because she is dealing with multiple sicknesses and my father, who was our main source of income, passed away. My parent both put a lot of pressure on me to get a good education, but we lack the funds to make my dreams of becoming a doctor a reality.

I would like to be considered to receive the Catholic Daughters of America College Scholarship for a variety of reasons.

The scholarship will be utilized to offset the cost. I feel that this private college is the ideal setting to be able to focus on the academic field I want to obtain a degree in.

I would use this scholarship to further my education and dream of becoming a surgeon. I have volunteered at St. Anthony Hospital since October 2016 in the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) and the OR (Operating Room). I have over 500+ hours volunteering and in conjunction with that I have done a 100-hour internship over the summer. In the PACU, I work with nurses and I get to observe patients waking up from surgery. I help the nurses with anything they need like monitoring a patient, getting family members, cleaning bays, and answering phones. I help out in the OR by cleaning and stocking. It is fulfilling not only because I help the nurses out a lot, but also because I have a passion for the medical field. I started volunteering because of my interest in the medical field

My scholarship allowed me to be awarded with an on campus job. Due to my dual-enrollment credit hours and my ACT score, I was given the opportunity to become an athletic study hall worker. I served as a mentor and personal tutor for the incoming freshmen athletes of the university and supervised their academic study hours. All of the athletes were required to attend study hall 8 hours a week. Just like my first class of freshmen athletes, I was also new to the university. This experience was very beneficial for me in that I was given a very important duty at such a young age. I had to learn to keep control of my students as well as ensure a conductive, comfortable learning
