I am currently a senior this year and will be graduating at the end of May with the Class of 2016. I will be attending Dixie State University this Fall 2016. My intended major is Criminal Justice with emphasis in Corrections. I have always been interested in the Criminal Justice system, the way they use evidence to solve hard cases and how much Criminal Justice can make a difference to society. I also want to take that knowledge and bring it back to my community to help improve the Criminal Justice system on the Navajo Reservation including other neighboring different tribes. We have all seen the imperfect police officers and how they treat other ethnic groups or people who are in need, I want to show people that not all police officers are
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,
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.
Attending college and pursuing a bachelor's degree has been an educational goal of mine for many years. To attain that goal, I conducted research to find a school with a degree plan that mirrors my current career in the US Army. Currently, I am enrolled at Franklin University to attain that goal. While attending Franklin University, I plan on completing a degree in Operations and Supply Management Chain. I decided to choose this degree because I currently work in the field of Logistics in the United States Army.
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
I believe I should be awarded this scholarship because of the hard work and dedication I put fourth in every school day. My family has just enough money to make it by, living pay check to pay check. I don't like to see my parents struggle and I now have two jobs in order to not take away from the money making ends meet. My economic status doesn't hinder me, it makes me stronger. I know I have to do well in high school and college in order to change standards that my family lives in. Neither of my parents graduated from college and I want to break the cycle not only to make them proud, but to make myself proud. I believe I should be awarded the scholarship because I am not only thinking about futhering myself, I'm thinking about helping my
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
The reason I want this Scholarship is to take the burden off my mother and to achieve an education that will allow me to take both my mother and I out of poverty. My mother has worked her entire life to do the best for me and it hasn’t been the easiest situation. My mother has multiple auto-immune deficiencies and frequents the hospital. I can remember all those nights
In my elementary, intermediate and middle school years I have made it a priority to always show scholarship. Throughout my years of school I have maintained a 4.0, or gotten all A’s. In my earlier years of school I was awarded the principal's award several times, which is for academics. Following that I have also attended and placed 2nd in the math tournament and will be participating this year as well. Another very important thing is I have recently been given the opportunity to as an 8th grade student, take 3 freshman classes in place of my 8th grade classes to get or be ahead come my highschool years. Doing my best in school has always been important to me; even though I can be a procrastinator at times, I always get my work
I'd like to get this scholarship because i'm a very hard worker once I get my mind set on it, I work at the Roseau Hospital in food service and I absolutely love it! I get to see the residents that's always the best part of my day.
Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to represent something that mattered. I wanted to be great at anything I decided to do in life. When I started the 6th grade I had no idea of what I wanted to be when I grew up; until I met my smart lab facilitator Mr. Max Brooks. At that time, He was in charge of the smart lab at our school and he was also the robotics coach. I remember when he asked me personally to join the team. He picked about eight other students just like me to be on the team. Specifically, NSBE stands for the National Society of Black Engineers. All students that he hand-picked to be on the team were to design a robot that followed a pre-set course. We worked after school every day getting
We live in a diverse world filled with many different types of people who come from many different types of backgrounds. In the United States these people commonly live in two types of settings; rural or urban. From my own perspective I would consider urban fast paced with large amounts of people. Rural is just the opposite, with its beautiful country roads, acres of fields, and practically knowing where every person lives. I am honestly auspicious enough to be one of the lucky kids who got to grow up in a rural community surrounded by not only my biological family, but as well as my community, and school family, where I was always offered a caring hand.

I am applying for this scholarship so I can have better resources to help improve my art. I would love to take art classes outside of school or participate in summer camps. I have always loved art and I love to paint with oils but I am still a beginner in oil painting, so this scholarship will help me along my art journey. I consider myself a pretty creative and artistic person who tries to see the artistic side in everything. I’ve always had a knack for art since I was young, and I likely got the “art genes” from my dad and grandma who were both incredible artists. I’ve been starting to take art seriously for about 2 years now. I can see myself making a career out of art someday, whether it’s as a portrait painter or an art teacher, I know I want to pursue art. I have entered a couple of art contests and received a few honorable mentions, and nowadays I've been having more chances to enter contests. I am ecstatic to have opportunities like that no matter the outcome of the competition.
“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure” (Bill Cosby). Reflecting back on my life I have dealt with numerous downfalls but I always bounce back. I was born in India and moved here when I was six years old. As I grew up in California I was not a bright student at first. I was enrolled in Carmichael Elementary in which I was the only one with Turban on my head, which caused me to get into a lot of fights with other students who were making fun of turban. Not knowing how to speak English at the time affected the way interacted with teachers and students. On the other hand my family always had a tight budget at home. Both of my parents worked at the store we owned which was the only source money. At school kids were always talking about their new shoes and the iPod which his or her parents got them. I didn’t get everything I wanted as a kid but as I got older I understand if did I could be a spoiled brat. When I moved from Carmichael to Sacramento and I was enrolled at Maeola R. Beitzel elementary. Going to this new school I already learned English so I made marvelous friends and was surrounded by positive people. Going from a chaos environment to this harmonious environment in part because I was speaking English, made me have unique personality .I was playing sports and growing as a student. Those years went by in no time. Now I am in high school and my family’s income has been growing. My mom changed her work to now at Jack in
