The Forty Acres Scholars Program ultimately helps me change the world by molding me into a problem-solving leader and an inspirational pharmacist. My improved leadership skills from the program would be used to fuel the world with good deeds and prepare the youth to do the same as well. The changes that I bring about to the world will trace back to what happens here and that is me being provided with the chance to be a part of the Fort Acres Scholars
On Thursday, November 2, 2017 the Fort Valley State University hosted its seventy-seventh annual Founders Day. At the Founders Day Convocation, President Jones and the FVSU family honored not only the founding of our school but also the great legacy that us as Wildcats are becoming a part of.

Mr. Bond spoke of several things and a few truly stood out to me. He stated that “elite universities

If I was going to receive the Prairie Meadow Scholarship, it would allow me to pay for my college tuition, and architecture classes to further pursue to achieve a associates at DMACC and a masters in Iowa State University. The colleges I would appreciate attending are Iowa State University and DMACC. It would take away a lot of stress and anxiety towards the high cost of college tuition, books, paying for classes.
At my previous university, I participated in many activities within Riverside. On top of this, I have made great friends that helped me to grow as a person. Riverside also provided me with exactly what I needed to achieve my previous goal of working within the business world. This drive to apply for Texas A&M is however not solely based on academics. Having grown up in the North Dallas area from 4th grade to 8th grade, I feel a strong attachment to Texas. It is the state where I grew the most and found myself to be the best person I could be. Paired with the program that Texas A&M offers, I hope to bring my newly found experiences to Texas A&M to contribute to what Aggieland is all
On our visit to the University Of Redlands, My guide walked backwards facing us the entire time. While walking backwards our guide made a special effort to connect with us, without seeing, venturing in the unknown. I chose the University of Redlands because of its academic rigor, diverse student population, and the beautiful campus. My interests are Business Administration, Political Science, Pre-law, Corporate and Sports Contractual Law. Attending at this remarkable University would allow me to invest in myself and would help change the world perspectives around me. A career in law will enable me to help people who are less fortunate and contribute to an established law firm. While attending the University of Redlands, I intend to respect
When I was a child, I never fully understood the importance of school. As I grew older my parents took the care to teach me that education, especially one that is free, was a privilege and would offer opportunities for success. For the two of them, Immigration to the United States offered prospects of a better life, yet to do so they needed education. So, as a result I have acquired that by learning I can reach my aspirations, but to reach that point I must be diligent, determined, and well-rounded. I aspire to go to college, and eventually help heal the world.Thus, why I believe that I am a well-suited Candidate for the AP Capstone Scholars’ Program.
Hi I am Jacarra Dancy. I'm from Durham, North Carolina. I am currently a Senior at Southern Durham High School of Energy and Sustainability. I am the definition of a scholar with the hard work and dedication I use to pursue a goal whether it is academic,physical,or an overall goal. Being involved in so many extra curricular activities in my high school career such as the National Honor/Scholars Society, Leadership in Marching Band, Management of the wrestling team, being a participant in the Sports Medicine team, and a participant in homecoming affairs has helped me gain leadership skills as well as being able to be a team player. Not only did I have prior knowlede about FSU, As seeing my sister attend Fayetteville State University, and enjoying
My eyes lit up as a saw all of the different clubs and organizations offered. I loved Quiz Bowl, Book Club, Dance, and Chess Club in high school and I would love to continue these in my college life. Furthermore, at Rensselaer I can pursue my personal interest in sustainability with like-minded students through Vasudha. I could quickly see that many people at Rensselaer share similar interests with me. This idea was further supported after my subsequent tour around campus. Students were studying outside or milling about in groups, but what drew my eye was a group of students in vests and holding nerf guns. I watched as they prepared for battle and then took off after one another, and I had to stop myself from asking if I could join. The people I met and the students I talked to showed me the fun and encouraging side of a school that is known for its academics. Spending a couple hours on campus allowed me to see the fun, studious, and unique nature of Rensselaer and I felt right at
‘There was a Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program established by congress in 86 to honor Senator Barry Goldwater, who served his country for 56 years as a soldier and statesman including 30 years of service in the Senate.

My desire as a child to travel the world led me to my education at Pace University, first of my many destinations. The teaching methodology, the process of assigning homework, the serene atmosphere in the campus and the ever-helping faculty and staff have already instilled confidence in me. This has helped me ease out of my comfort zone to explore and innovate. Gaining my higher education in America has exposed me to a whole new set of scholastic vocabularies such as credit hours, GPA, courses, Greek life involving sororities and fraternities and
As a charter member of the Jefferson Scholars Foundation Shadwell Society, I am committed to encouraging reinvestment into the University of Virginia. Founded in 2012, the Shadwell Society’s mission is “to engage alumni and friends of the University and to provide support, meaningful service, and future leadership to the Jefferson Scholars Foundation.” Members serve a five- year term and pledge $2,000 per year.

I get to share my passions with children and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM. I currently tutor math students at a Title I school to prepare for the Milestone exam.

Through the activities I lead and serve in, I’ve cultivated an appreciation for those in my community and learned to apply my ethic to help others. My determination to learn and serve will guide to me towards a future involvement and success in college and as I obtain my career
I was never a fan of anyone before until I met and took Dr. Shipman’s class of University of Texas Arlington. She is really an intelligent professor with an active teaching style for students to be successful. I like her and so I truly had learned plenty of knowledge from her, who has motivated me to become a confident lady in math now. However, the thing I will never forget about her in my life that she gave me the award “Bernice Livers Sonricker Endowed Scholarship 2014” even I was not a perfect smart student. Although I have a strong math solving problem skills, I have not always been good at math. But she believes in me and makes me realize that I can become a good and confident professor in the future if I set a right goal for myself and work hard enough.
