#LiveLikeLyLy Memorial Scholarship

In 2015, we added a new scholarship for aspiring fashion and graphic design students: The #LiveLikeLyly Memorial Scholarship in honor of a special member of the ATG family Lyly Koenig Mendez.

 

Lyly Koenig Mendez was an orphan brought to the United States through Operation Babylift and whose story is highlighted in ATG’s documentary feature, Operation Babylift: The Lost Children of Vietnam. A great supporter of ATG and the arts, Lyly grew up in Festus, MO, graduated from Crystal City High School in 1993 and earned degrees from the University of Missouri at St. Louis and the Miami International University of Art and Design. She worked in TV and film production, was a skilled graphic designer and fashion designer who also had her work featured in ATG’s 2010 Fashion for a Passion. In addition, she was a cheerleader for the St. Louis Rams in the 1990s as well as the San Diego Chargers from 2000-2001.

Lyly passed away on January 20, 2015, near Houston, TX, at the age of 40, after an eight-year fight against breast cancer. Throughout, she never let the disease take her joy, humor, creativity, compassion, humanity and passion for family, friends and life. As Lyly was a shining example of what it means to “Go Against The Grain,” this memorial artistic scholarship was created in her name specifically to support talented emerging graphic/fashion design students like her and dedicated with love as a reminder of her unique spirit and legacy to #LiveLikeLyly.

Your unweighted GPA must be 3.25 or higher – if you’re from outside the United States, there are specific instructions in the application for you. If your school doesn’t use a 4.0 scale or doesn’t include your unweighted GPA on your transcript, you’ll need an official letter from the school explaining what your unweighted GPA would be. If your university only uses an online access format for transcripts, just set it up and upload the acknowledgment from your school in your application.

Dell Scholars

While many students dream of obtaining a college degree, life sometimes gets in the way - particularly for those dealing with personal responsibilities at home or in their communities. The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation created the Dell Scholars program with the understanding that it takes more than financial help to support students to college graduation. From the start, Dell Scholars was designed as a college completion program that offers support services that go beyond a scholarship check.

Our program includes a support network made up of students, peer mentors, and the Dell Scholars staff to help our scholars succeed. We created a financial award that is very flexible, so scholars can use their award money for the many costs that arise during their college career. We offer an online community to meet scholars where they are connect them with fellow scholars. We are constantly evolving our program to serve our scholars all the way to college graduation.

Today, the Dell Scholars program offers personalized, multifaceted support to our scholars that extends beyond the financial support of $20,000, a laptop, and textbook credits. We offer students and their families services and solutions to address individual and systemic issues that can create major barriers to student success.

Completing the online application is the first step to becoming a Dell Scholar. Once submitted, all applications will be assessed, and a group of Dell Scholar semifinalists will be selected. Semifinalists are asked to submit a current copy of their high school transcript, a complete Student Aid Report (SAR) from their FAFSA, and an online recommendation. After the semifinalist information is submitted, all information is reviewed by an independent selection committee.

The End Family Fire Scholarship Competition gives students a chance to make a difference through the power of creativity and storytelling.

Two (2) winning entries will be selected — one from a high school entrant and one from a college entrant— and each will receive a $5,000 scholarship to be used toward college, university, or trade school tuition, fees and/or supplies. The winning entrants will also have the opportunity to have their video used by the Ad Council as an official End Family Fire campaign PSA, with a potential to be distributed nationally to over 1,600 television stations.

Before beginning creative production, all applicants must review the official rules, creative brief, and ensure they meet the eligibility requirements to participate in the competition. For those students who are under the age of 18, or are not yet a legal adult in the state in which they reside, they must obtain parent or guardian permission in order to participate in the scholarship competition. Students may not incorporate guns of any kind in the video, including toy or prop guns.

Registrants must be dependent children, spouses or domestic partners of 9/11 victims, including airplane crew and passengers; World Trade Center and Pentagon workers and visitors; and relief workers, including firefighters, emergency medical personnel, and law enforcement personnel, who were involved in the rescue efforts.

The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund is only accepting registrations for victims who passed away on September 11, 2001.

Families of Freedom Scholarships are available for children including those of disabled registrants, born after September 11, 2001, who enroll in a program of postsecondary study by age 24. (Those children who turn 24 during their course of study must then continue their program of study uninterrupted, with the exception of summer vacations, in order to continue receiving scholarship assistance.)

Registration for the families of victims who passed away on September 11, 2001 remains open.

Parents and siblings of victims are not eligible for Families of Freedom Scholarships unless they can provide documentation of financial dependence on the victim.

At this time, students who show no financial need may receive a modest award for up to four years, or the part-time equivalent, from one of various Families of Freedom subfunds. These awards may be used for education-related expenses.

Permanently Disabled

Permanently disabled individuals must be deemed disabled by the Social Security Administration and have successfully completed the Families of Freedom registration process prior to September 30, 2016. The registration period has closed indefinitely for victims who were permanently disabled as a direct result of 9/11.

Children of disabled registrants must have been born after September 11, 2001 but prior to September 30, 2008 in order to be eligible.

 

Eligible Uses of Funds

  • Scholarships may be used to attend an accredited vocational-technical school, trade school, two-year college, four-year college, or university located in the United States.
  • Families of Freedom Scholarships are available for postsecondary study only. The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund does not provide scholarships for elementary or secondary school.
  • Families of Freedom Scholarship recipients may receive scholarship awards for up to four years, or the equivalent if attendance is part-time, depending on total funding available.
  • Eligibility for scholarship assistance is always based on financial need, as calculated by our financial need formula. Funds are available for undergraduate study.
  • Families of Freedom Scholarships are not provided to repay past student loans.
  • Although conditions may change over time, including the percentage of financial need covered, retroactive payments will not be made from the Fund to past recipients.

 

Staying Eligible

  • Grades are not considered in determining initial eligibility for Families of Freedom scholarships or the value of scholarship awards. However, a transcript of grades is required to verify enrollment and course completion for prior terms.
  • Students must apply each year for awards from the Fund in order to determine continued eligibility and award amount. Eligibility for scholarship assistance is always based on financial need. Award amounts for eligible students may change yearly, based on changes in family finances, changes in tuition rates, and current actuarial projections for the Fund.

Glow-Up, Grow Up Scholarship Slam

HOW DOES $1,000 FOR COLLEGE SOUND? THOUGHT SO. KEEP READING TO FIND OUT HOW TO WIN.

 

Glow-ups aren't just about making it out of your "awkward stage" — they're about transforming as a person, too. Let's face it, you've changed a lot as you've gotten older. That's not a bad thing; as you learn more, your perspective shifts and opinions can change. The person you are now isn't the same person you were when you were a child.

What was an experience that made you realize you weren't a kid anymore, and what do you know now that you didn't know back then?

Sometimes we have to go through difficult experiences that cause us to grow up. Other times we grow simply because we learn more about ourselves and the world every day. Maybe you've learned to be more tolerant of others, or gotten a better idea of the future you want to build for yourself. Or maybe you've gone from despising broccoli to "hey, this isn't half bad" (also a big step). Reflect on how your mindset has changed between childhood and now including your own internal glow-up. Tell us in a poem about when you realized you were growing up, for your chance to win.

Note: This is a sweepstakes scholarship. That means a winner will be chosen from a random drawing.

ELIGIBILITY

  1. The basic requirements are this: (1) you are 25 years of age (or younger), and (2) you are a current or former high school student who will attend or is attending college within the U.S. or its territories.
  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by Thursday, June 27, 2019. You'll need to register as a member of our community first.

Got questions? Our scholarship FAQ and contest rules should have the answers. If they don't, feel free to contact us.

Halloween Express Scholarship

The scholarship contest is open to all fields of study for students who are at least 18 years of age by the entry deadline and have been accepted to an accredited post secondary undergraduate program or college located in the United States for the stated school years. The program can be a two or four year vocational, college or university. Financial need is not a consideration for this scholarship.

How to Enter

Submit your essay along with the information requested using the ONLINE FORM available on this page. You will be asked to provide some personal information. All information provided will be used only to compete in this contest. We will never sell or give away your information to anyone, ever. Essay must be submitted by the entry deadline specified in the scholarship contest period. All entries must use the online form. Entries cannot be accepted any other way. Only one essay per person (based on email) will be accepted.

Essay Topic

In recent years there's been a lot of debate about Halloween costume standards. Some cities have banned or at least strongly discouraged certain types of costumes such as clown costumes. Some costume retailers have faced outrage from various groups protesting certain ethnic or religious dress costumes (e.g. Native American costumes). And there are groups who protest the selling of costumes which in their view either glorify violence (e.g. military costumes) or are overly sexual. The fall ritual of dressing up in costume and trick-or-treating seems particularly challenging for college campuses where some university administrations have gone as far as to issue warnings about costume choices.

Are the standards for Halloween costumes changing? Or, are these protests simply one more example of some who want to force their point of view on others?    Are there some costumes which should be off-limits? If so, what are those costumes?  And, who gets to decide what those limits are? Why? Is freedom of expression no longer relevant?  Have we reached the point at which we're being conditioned to be offended by everything we see and hear? What type of costume did you wear last year? What will you wear this year?

Healthcare Training Scholarship Plan - National CPR Association

Writing Your Essay

We are looking for a 500-1500 word essay with a focus on your personal thoughts and feelings. Tell us what you think about the possibility that you may be required to perform CPR on someone to save their life – how will you handle the situation, and what kind of preparation will you undertake to ensure you are ready for and up to the task? If you have been involved already in a lifesaving scenario, we would like to read about that as well – include as many specifics as possible and relate your feelings and thoughts about the incident.

Expert knowledge of CPR is neither required not expected, since you may not have yet received training in this lifesaving procedure.

New Jersey Hall of Fame Arete Scholarship

The New Jersey Hall of Fame is proud to announce the renewal of the Arete Scholarship Fund. The Arête Scholarships will be awarded to a deserving male and female student graduating in 2020 from a New Jersey high school. Each recipient will receive a $5,000 scholarship from the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF).

Arête is a concept that Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle referred to more than 3,000 years ago that refers to the act of actualizing one’s highest sense of self with a moral excellence of character. The term Arête essentially means that the individual should strive to pursue their passions in life, and realize their dreams regardless of their circumstances or the adversities that they are likely to face on the path to greatness.

The successful applicants will embody the meaning of Arête and will distinguish themselves as New Jerseyans who are on their way to realizing their dreams. The NJHOF Arête Scholarship Award will be one of the highest honors that the NJHOF & the State of N.J. can bestow upon a student, and each student will be recognized at the NJHOF’s annual induction ceremony!

The recipients of the Arête scholarship are young people who demonstrate that sense of Jersey pride and that willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. The successful applicants must demonstrate qualities such as academic engagement, moral character, and a commitment to their community. These recipients do not necessarily have to be at the very top of their school class from an academic standpoint, but should demonstrate a focus in school and life, and have a well thought out plan on how they intend to realize their highest sense of self: their Arête.

The New Jersey Hall of Fame celebrates the extraordinary accomplishments of Garden State citizens. The inductees have overcome challenges and obstacles to rise to the top of their chosen field. They offer hope to those facing their own struggles and to young people who dare to dream, despite adversity. They instill a sense of pride in New Jerseyans who identify with their “can-do” attitudes and tenacity.

Parkinson's Foundation Summer Student Fellowship Program

In 2015, the Parkinson's Foundation and the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) partnered to expand the foundation's existing Summer Student Fellowships Program, which supports students – from advanced undergraduates to medical students – in their pursuit of Parkinson's-related summer research projects. The goal of the Parkinson's Foundation-APDA Summer Student Fellowships is to cultivate students' early interest in helping to solve, treat and end Parkinson's and providing the tools they need to transition into leaders in the field.

Fellows work under the close supervision of a sponsor who is an expert in the Parkinson's community and oversees the project.

We offer summer fellowships for 10 weeks of clinical or laboratory work with a $4,000 award. We invite fellows to apply for up to $1,000 in travel funds to attend a related scientific conference to present their research upon project completion. The award supports the student's summer research, defraying tuition costs of research credits or supplementing living or housing costs. This award may be taxable; the Parkinson's Foundation sends an IRS form 1099 to the recipient at the end of the calendar year.

Eligibility

Undergraduate students and medical students are eligible for summer fellowships. Each applicant must show a mentor with whom he or she will conduct the proposed project. This program is open to national and international applicants.

Shinesty's Play Hard Scholarship

APPLY IF...

  • You are an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student who is a force of social change and leadership on and off campus by being actively involved and engaged in countless activities, groups, or clubs.
  • We’re looking for the college-iest college student in the U S of A. No one has ever asked you, “Who do you know here?” You’re actively leaving a legacy of social excellence & have already started picking the font for the bench they'll probably dedicate to you. On your first day, you asked your RA for YOUR social events calendar. You know you’ll be here for five years, because red-shirting your academics is a D1 strategy. If someone’s talking about it, you planned it. You call your professors by their first name, and they do the opposite. There's zero chance you peaked in high school.

All applicants for the Play Hard Scholarship must meet all of the following eligibility requirements to apply:

  • Must be enrolled at an accredited 2-year, 4-year, or technical/vocational college or university in the United States.
  • Open to college undergraduates, graduate students, or professional students.
  • Must be a United States citizen or Permanent Resident.
  • Open to students from all states.
  • Maximum cumulative GPA of 3.25. No nerds.
  • If selected, you must provide an unofficial transcript for GPA and enrollment verification.

Essay or video required.

Shinesty's Work Hard Scholarship

APPLY IF...

  • You are an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student who possesses an impeccable work ethic and constantly strives for excellence in every aspect of your life, especially within academics.
  • You see people leaving the library at 2 am and think to yourself, “Early night.” You put the team on your back for clicker questions. Your idea of fun is checking to see if your test scores have been posted - despite the fact that you already know you aced your exam. You do all the work in group projects, not because your team let you down, but because your work is just better. You actually read all 140 pages of the suggested reading. You got a perfect ACT/SAT score, but that’s the least impressive thing about your academic career. You thought graduating summa cum laude was too easy, so you picked up a second major so you could do it twice.

All applicants for the Work Hard Scholarship must meet all of the following eligibility requirements to apply:

  • Must be enrolled at an accredited 2-year, 4-year, or technical/vocational college or university in the United States.
  • Open to college undergraduates, graduate students, or professional students.
  • Must be a United States citizen or Permanent Resident.
  • Open to students from all states.

The Garden Club of America - The Clara Carter Higgins Summer Environmental Studies Scholarship

Purpose: To encourage studies and careers in the environmental field, with the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience beyond the regular course of study.

History: Established in 1964 by Clara Carter Higgins (Mrs. John W.), of the Worcester (Massachusetts) Garden Club with a stock gift of approximately $15,000. According to Executive Committee minutes of November 15, 1966, the interest from the fund “was to be used to cover a summer scholarship in conservation, preferably at the college level.” Mrs. Higgins wrote Mrs. Erastus Corning, then president of the GCA, “The Garden Club of America has meant so much to me during my life and I am so deeply appreciative of all it has done. I shall be happy to help someone realize the importance of conservation, if I can."

In 1990, responsibility for the solicitation, screening, and selection of candidates passed from the GCA Conservation Committee to the GCA Scholarship Committee. In 1993, the Scholarship Committee responded to the increasing number of excellent applicants for the Higgins Scholarship by voting monies from the General Scholarship Fund to create and endow an additional summer environmental studies award.

Provisions: Annually funds one Clara Carter Higgins scholar and one or more GCA Summer Environmental Studies scholars at $3000 per recipient in financial assistance for summer coursework in environmental studies. (Award amounts were increased from $1500 in 2007.)

Eligibility: Open to college students following their freshman, sophomore, or junior year. These awards offer students who have demonstrated a keen interest in the betterment of the environment an opportunity for further study at a site chosen by the student. Some of the summer programs students have completed recently include the study of hazardous waste, marine science, energy, plant resources in the tropics, barrier island ecology, and oil spill cleanup and control. Eligibility is open to U.S. Citizens and permanent residents who are enrolled in a U.S. - based institution.

To Apply: See application and information. Applications must be received at GCA Headquarters in New York City by February 5 preceding the summer of study.

The deadline to apply is July 10th, 2019.

How to apply: Our requirement is simple. We want you to submit a 1-2 page essay, 1.5 spaced, detailing an initiative that you would like to see happen -- were you a policy maker, healthcare entrepreneur, or public health worker -- to prevent or delay one of the most pressing health issues facing Americans today.

An example is the CDC-Recognized DPP (Digital Diabetes Prevention Program), a nationwide initiative modeled after a 10-year longitudinal study that showed a healthy diet, more exercise, and 5-7% body weight loss could delay the onset of diabetes after showing the signs of diabetes and prevent the progression to diabetes of prediabetes by 58%! This insight has since become a nationwide initiative, covered by most health plans, medicaid plans, and medicare. It is making a true difference in the wellness and lives of those who are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes.

So, what's the next great preventive health frontier?

The Zonta International YWPA Committee recommends 10 international recipients from the district/region applications to the Zonta International Board. After approval by the Zonta International Board, the Zonta International Foundation provides awards and certificates to the district/region and international recipients.
