Anyone can get scholarships. It is a common misconception that scholarships are only for "straight-A" students. There are many types of scholarships for college students, including those with less than perfect grades. Some scholarships are for athletes; others are for students planning to study in particular fields; and others for community service. Some scholarship providers just want to reward students for living in a certain city or state. Scholarships are available for all levels of college study, from freshman undergrads to graduate and Ph.D. students. There are also scholarships available for non-traditional and returning adult students.
You can use a search service on the Internet, like ScholarshipChart.com, http://studentaid2.ed.gov/getmoney/scholarship and http://studentaid2.ed.gov/getmoney/scholarship/v3browse.asp. Students can also ask their high school guidance counselors about any local or state awards that they qualify for. Students should contact the financial aid office at the college or university they plan to attend to learn if they qualify for any awards provided by the school.
At age ten, I was the little, illiterate Haitian Bahamian girl in the first grade. At the age of six, my parents sent me to live in Haiti with my grandparents who did not find it necessary to give me an education. When I returned to the Bahamas at the age of ten, I did not have the education to be placed in my regular grade level. Although I was ridiculed by the other students, I was determined to be the best that I can be. Named "Brenda Star" by my favorite teacher at the Catholic school that I attended, I was motivated to achieve the highest accolade. The determination to achieve success was further strengthened when I attended high school. In the tenth grade, a Dr. John Carey (the motivational speaker at the first day of school assembly) said, "Success does not come to you, you must go to it". I have taken this law of life and made it my own. When I graduated from high school (2nd in my class) at the age of 20, it was not because I was a struggling learner; rather, it was because I started my journey later than my classmates.
Consequently, my life-long goal has been that I will be the best that I can be in any opportunity that I encounter. As a result of this scholarship, I will be able to accomplish my goal of reaching the highest pinnacle of my educational career. The funds received from this scholarship will help me to complete my education which I would not be able to do had I not received the scholarship. I am very grateful to be the recipient of Scholarship for Moms for the month of October. I will not only make my two children proud, but also, I will be better equipped to meet the academic needs of my classroom students.
Hi, My name is Lydia Menino; I am 19 years of age and attend Oregon State University. This will be my sophomore year at OSU. Oregon State University is located in Corvallis, Oregon. I was born and raised here in Corvallis, which is a very beautiful place. Corvallis is full of nature and hiking trails that show the town's hidden treasures. I grew up in a house outside of town with my parents and my three sisters. We have several acres of land and over the years I have raised sheep for 4H. I also have horses that I enjoy riding when I have the spare time. I couldn't be happier that Corvallis is where I grew up.
I am currently majoring in Interior Design and Business; art and design have always been a passion of mine since I was young. Although the program is starting to become challenging, I am enjoying it. I am a sophomore so I am just now starting to get into the programs studio classes. The classes are very involved and detail oriented. I am also studying business not only because I think it is very helpful but because I hope to one day own a business of my own.
I plan to put the money I was awarded towards studying abroad. One of my biggest dreams is to travel the world and study abroad. I am very interested in a particular program that is located in London. I think it would be such an incredible experience to study abroad and understand other cultures while learning. I think especially in design it is very beneficial to go to other countries and see the beautiful things they have to offer such as architecture and vibrant colors.
I cannot say thank you enough for this incredible gift.
This is such an amazing opportunity! I am a full time student and a full time worker and this scholarship is such a blessing. Not only does this help in the financial department, but it also helps with the ongoing mental question of how everything will get paid off!
This money will definitely go a long way and help me continue in my schooling and fulfill my dreams of becoming a part of this country's criminal justice system! I came across scholarships.net and I figured "why not? It can't hurt to try." I never thought that I would be the winner of the $10,000 scholarship!!
I plan on using this money to pay for my tuition, and also all of the necessities that come with being a full time student.
Thank you so much!
