I have been a part of JROTC for the past four years of my high school career. During my time in the program, I gained more self-confidence and was able to venture out of my comfort zone, which allowed me to join numerous clubs and organizations throughout my high school career. The clubs include the Chess Club for one year, the Environmental Club and AFJROTC Honor Guard team for two years, and Science Olympiad all my four years of high school. The organizations include the National Technical Honor Society for two years and National Honor Society for two years as well and voted Vice President.
This scholarship would have a positive impact on my education and help my mom pay for college without taking student loans. My mom has been a single mom for eighteen years and has supported me, my brother, and grandparents. She does not receive child support on a regular basis and does everything on her own. Unfortunately, my younger brother is an accident-prone child and has racked up some high medical bills throughout the years. For countless years she has worked two jobs to support everyone and provide anything within reason. My mom is currently unemployed due to the downturn in the oil field in west Texas. Now she has taken on the challenge of remodeling and flipping houses.
Furthering my education at Fairmont State University is the best decision I have made. I started college at West Virginia University and it was a disaster for me. So, I say this with sincerity, being a member of Fairmont State University is an honor. The instructors here care and make me feel valued, they are willing to go that extra mile for any student that would need it. The professional relationships I have here, are essential to me and the make me a very determined individual. I believe I am a prime example of hard work and I am paving the way for success, proving I deserve consideration for scholarships.
I intend to use this scholarship to help pay for my tuition and books at the Southern Arizona University of Phoenix- Online. I would like to be considered for this scholarship because I have no financial help from my family. This means that I have to be able to pay for college on my own because of the fact that my father is no longer in my life, and my mom has my other siblings to take care of. My father is no longer in my life because he now lives in Mexico with his other family. I don’t have financial help from him because he has a wife and six other children. My mother would like to be able to help me, but she has two other children she’s taking care of by herself, and she has to prepare for my sister's graduation next year as well as mine this year. I plan to get a job after I graduate to help pay for the expenses of college, but since I am going online the expenses of college are going to be a lot less than if I were to go on campus, this is the main reason I am planning to go online, and to take a lot of the stress of being totally alone off myself because I will only be twenty minutes away from my family instead of an hour or two.
I have worked on my family farm ever since I was fourteen years old. This is where I have gained my love of agriculture. My responsibilities include taking care of my show calves, working cattle, helping with harvesting and planting, and assisting my father with any other needs around the farm. The experiences I have gained through working on my family’s farm will help lead me through the rest of my life.
Ever since I was a young kid I have always been interested in movies. My grandma, who was full of the wise the life experience left, always knew about my interest in movies. She feed my vain for the art. Even though her religion, she professed Adventist of seven-day religion, didn't let her go to the cinema, she always found the way to took me to the cinema. She and I enjoyed watch movies. We used to sit in the darkness room, with our faces illuminated from the reflection of the light which rebooted from the screen, both absorbs in the plot of the movie which made us laughed or cried. After the movie, while we went back to her home, she started to talk about the movie. She had a particular point of view where the main story
My father is going to retire in some years and my mother is a house wife. They both have invested in their house heavily therefore these reasons might affect my family’s ability to fund my college tuition.
The foreclosure crisis is the second major financial dilemma of the twenty-first century. To solve this, the roots of the problem need to be dug up and exposed followed by replanting with an appropriately improved regulatory system to help build stronger roots for the future. It seems that the free market system can't be free anymore given its intertwining roots extend way beyond domestic to international financial systems. There are two fundamental causes to the latest credit crisis: 1) poor quality securitized mortgages and 2) insufficient underwriting for credit poor borrowers. Secondary (downstream) problems making the financial crisis more complex include underemployment and business failures. Many banks,
Being diagnosed with cancer has impacted my outlook on life in many different ways. At first I saw cancer as a burden on my life and only the negative attributes stood out on how it was going to change my life and the way I saw people around me, but now after being two years cancer free, I have gone to realize the positive aspects cancer has had on my life.
As the child of a single parent, the La Junta Rotary Club Foundation Scholarship would be of great assistance in supporting my goal of obtaining a degree in Agriculture Education. My mom has been very supportive of my education, but I know she does not have the financial ability to pay for my college education. My goal has always been to apply for as many scholarships as I can in hopes of having my education paid for. I plan to continue to work during college to help pay for my tuition and books, but I know working many hours and going to school can be very challenging. This scholarship would help me stay debut free and continue to work towards my goals.
Like most young boys I grew up idolizing sport heroes, racing kids on the playground, and playing sports outside. My teams were the Cowboys, the Astros, and later on in life the Aggies. Consequentially, if you didn’t love Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio than I didn’t really like you. Although most of these decisions were made based upon my brother’s sport interest, I learned to love them in my own way. After all, my brother was the one who I played basketball with, threw the football and baseball with, and eventually the one who inspired my love for A&M and the Aggies. For all my life I can remember wanting to play sports and wanting to watch sports, but around 7th grade when my brother moved off to A&M is when I really started getting the sports bug. Visiting for home games, standing in the
I think I should be offered the KISD Education Foundation scholarship opportunity due to my strong commitment to the fine arts and my desire to preserve them from the likes of public schools' budget cuts. The preservation of the future fine arts is a topic that is one of the most passionate for me to speak on due to my yearning to continue to spread its gift to new generation of students. Schools around the country continually attempt at cutting fine arts to balance school budgets, but this cannot be allowed to happen. The fine arts provide a creative medium of expression and passion for high students across the country, and, by providing me this scholarship opportunity, Killeen ISD will also have taken their own step at preventing these forms of expression from vanishing from our public-school system.
In my spring 2017 semester Kean awarded me the Freshman Trustee Scholarship for exceptional high school scholastic achievements, such as acquiring a 3.71 unweighted GPA and scoring 27 on the ACT. Whilst having such strong potential for collegiate success, there is a significant demonstrated financial gap in my parents' savings, where I must allocate my job earnings, and the cost for me to independently pursue a college education. Although my brother is diagnosed with severe autism and ADHD, and will remain almost absolutely financially dependent on my parents for his entire life, my source of financial need stems from being the eldest of five. In two years 3/4 of my younger quadruplet siblings, who are juniors in high school, and I will all
Coming into UNF in fall of 2017 I will be a transfer student. The choice to transfer wasn’t hard at all. I was born and raised in Jacksonville and miss home terribly. After not being happy at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida I knew I needed to move back home to Jacksonville and finish up my degree at the best school in Jacksonville, which happens to have a good exercise science program. I chose to transfer UNF’s Exercise Science program because I miss home, but also because I have heard great things about the program from former and current students.
I am writing to thank you for your generous $1000 Osher Initiative California Community College Scholarship. I feel very honor and appreciative to be the recipient of this awards.
