I am writing to you in the hopes to appeal the decision of my academic suspension. When I received the news of my suspension I was deeply saddened, but understood completely the circumstances under which the decision was made. My low GPA failed to meet the requirements of the University to remain an active student on campus, which as a result led to my temporary dismissal. In the beginning of my freshman year, I was very excited about coming to Howard University because I had fell in love with the school. Into my first year I took on 18 credit hours convinced that college would be similar to high school. My first semester felt extremely overwhelming, I thought that I could handle my classes, and I convinced myself that I did not need help but I had only proved by the end of that semester that I was wrong. I did not know how to study well, and I could rely on my “smarts” to get me through classes that were rigorous. I enrolled myself without counseling into Spanish 2, calculus 1, and Freshman composition and I struggled the entire way, my pride just would not let me admitted that I needed help. So I lied to myself, I told myself that it would get better or maybe just go away. It did not and after failing my final exams I would be faced with the damage I had done to my, academic career.
I am writing this letter to request an appeal financial aid for fall 2016 academic school year. I recognize that my performance in class this past semester has not met the standards required for me to be in good academic standing at Longwood. However I was faced with many challenges that interfered with my studies.
I am writing to you to appeal the Financial Aid Status I am currently placed under. Although you may not know me, if you look back at my grade history, this is not the student I am. I am a student who strives to work hard, and to do the ultimate best of my abilities. I usually beat myself up over homework and test grades. Throughout my career at Minot State University, my GPA never fell below a 3.70, I have been on the Dean’s/President’s Honor Roll since Fall of 2015. The only problem semester I have had previously was my first semester as a Freshman, and that was all about how I adjusted to college. After that first semester; I have only strived to reach my goals, and have worked tremendously
Kids Hope USA is a national mentor program that partners with local churches to send volunteers into elementary schools to spend one-on-one time with students, making a difference in a child’s life and the mentor’s life.
I am writing to appeal the scholarship and explain the circumstances that prevented me from meeting the satisfactory academic progress requirements. I am aware that I am responsible for my academic progress average. I would appreciate it if the Scholarship Administration consider the circumstances that caused my drop of my credit hours for 2014-2015.
Throughout Arizona, many families go without food and are unable to feed themselves or their families. Nutritious food is vital for proper physical health and intellectual development. I believe that no one should go hungry or worry about how they will obtain their next meal. To resolve this tremendous problem, I would implement a community garden program across Arizona. This program would aim to provide every neighborhood in Arizona with a local garden that is accessible to the entire community. These community gardens would also include social events that would encourage unity within each neighborhood. In addition, dieticians would be on site to demonstrate how to make fruits and vegetables grown into healthy and balanced meals.
MOUNT HOPE — Economic development and infrastructure go hand in hand, especially in Holmes County, where development is limited by infrastructure.
AU is my first choice school and I really want to attend AU. Unfortunately, I didn't get any financial aid aside from loans. This makes my decision much more difficult because my 2nd choice school gave me $16,500 a year for tuition, room and board; resulting in AU being significantly more expensive. My parents and I want to appeal for aid, but I am not sure how to do this. I am going on a gap year program next year and am not sure if it is appropriate to appeal now or next year. While my parents income is good now, my mom has experienced a recurrence of cancer which means she is working less, her income is decreasing and her medical expenses are increasing. Also, my dad was unemployed for 5 years which significantly decreased their savings
The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama is the book I chose for my summer reading because the author is a man who truly inspires me as an American, an aspiring politician and a person. It’s crazy how three words posted on social media can alter the way your peers view you. A simple hashtag “#ImWithHer” posted on my spam instagram page a few days before the 2016 election has gotten me labeled as “that obnoxious feminist girl who doesn’t know how to use instagram properly and blazons her worthless views to people who don’t care”. It’s an expectation that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so I didn’t think sharing this information would have the effects it did. Eight direct messages, some from people I’d never spoken to, and countless
I received an email today that I was denied to live off campus. Financially, I cannot afford to live on campus, which would result in me having to transfer to a different school. I would be leaving behind a community, a major, and a family of my friends that I have grown with this year. My parents are unable to help me financially because my father recently changed career paths and is not making enough money to do so. I am 17,000 dollars in debt from this year alone, so finding an off campus apartment was a goal of mine to reduce this huge amount of debt that I will need to pay off. I'm asking for you to appeal my denial so I can continue to go to this school and put my mind at peace from all of my financial worries. Thank you for
I am writing this as a recommendation letter for Jereme Wilson in his scholarship application for Canisius College. I have worked with Jereme at Dash’s Market for the past two years as his department manager.
I am writing to inform you of the unfortunate impact that the Hope scholarship's residency requirements has on students whom excel academically but are denied aid simply due to parents location. It would make a tremendous difference if the policy was more lenient towards former Georgians whom has relocated instead of their current residency being an end all factor for receiving financial help. Creating an amendment to the policy that would analyze unusual residency circumstances not only for those who are affiliated with the military but also for those who meet and maintain all the other standards throughout their college careers would alleviate financial burdens in the long-term.

The University is pleased to announce that the State of New York, under the leadership of Governor Cuomo and the legislature, is taking a bold step in addressing the cost of college education and student loan debt by launching the Excelsior Scholarship. This program is the first of its kind in the country. It will enable many New York State residents to attend a CUNY college tuition-free and establish a national model broadening access to higher education. Recipients of this award must have a family income of $100,000 or less, file the Free Application for Student Aid (FASFA) along with the TAP supplement, attend full-time, and complete 30 credits per year. (Nevarez, et al 2016). Awardees must also agree to reside exclusively in New York State and not be employed in any other State for a continuous number of years equal to the duration of the award. The Excelsior Scholarship will be applied to each qualifying student’s financial aid package after all other aid, including TAP, Pell, City Council Scholarship, college
I am writing this letter of appeal so I may attend your school for 2015-2016 school year. I would like to join your commercial art technology or electrical engineering technology associate programs. These are passions of mine that I would like to pursue as careers to provide for me and my family. Now that I am more mature and seasoned I know I am capable and ready to take on academia. Unfortunately I do not have documents getting back to 2005 to explain or help your board determine the outcome. Instead, I have a well-thought-out argument in its place & personal witness of hardships and trials during that period of my life, with what I have done to remedy and fix the issues and problems that I've had over the years.
