    #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.

    ABC Humane Wildlife Academic Scholarship - Women in STEM

    At ABC Wildlife, we believe diversity is critical in every scientific field from biology to chemical engineering. While women represent 48% of the American workforce, they make up only 13% of engineering professionals and a mere 7.2% in the field of mechanical engineering. Overall, women are critically underrepresented in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

    As a woman-owned corporation operating in a largely male field, we understand the remarkable impact women can have. We want to pave the way for other women pursuing their dreams in the scientific world, which is why ABC Wildlife is introducing a scholarship designed to increase the number of women studying and influencing the future of science, including technology, engineering and math.

    Essay Prompt: Why are you passionate about science, technology, engineering, or math, and how will your pursuit of these fields help preserve biodiversity, improve the health of our planet, or alleviate human suffering?

    To apply: Please send your essay response in 1000 words or fewer to grants@abcwildlife.com. The subject line of your submission must include “Women in STEM Scholarship.” You do not need to be a United States citizen to apply.

Graduate and undergraduate students enrolling or continuing in STEM fields of study at accredited universities in the 2019-20 academic year are welcome to apply by the July 1, 2019 deadline.

    One (1) award of $1,000 will be granted to the top essay submitted, and up to nine other students may receive awards for their submissions. Funds may be used for tuition, academic projects, medical expenses, housing, living expenses, transportation, or other education-related costs. In addition to your essay, please send proof of enrollment and one letter to serve as an academic reference. Both proof of enrollment and the letter of reference are due by July 1, 2019.

    This scholarship was created by Urban Wildlife Manager Rebecca Fyffe, an entrepreneur who is unique in her industry as a female business owner, as only 3% of pest control & management firms are owned by women. Fyffe credits her business acumen and cutting edge research-based methods to her STEM background and wishes for more women to have the opportunity to engage STEM programs and science-based education.

    Eligibility:

    To apply for the scholarship, applicant must be a student currently enrolled at a college or university recognized by the U.S. Department of Education in the United States.

    AG Bell College Scholarship Program

    • AG Bell usually awards scholarships to about 15% of applicants – it’s highly competitive, so you should give us a strong understanding of who you are – make use of the essay questions and your letters of recommendation to really impress us!
    • AG Bell Scholarships are for high-achieving students who have bilateral hearing loss that was diagnosed before age 4. You must be using Listening and Spoken Language as your primary communication mode. 
    • You must be attending a mainstream university and working toward a four-year undergraduate degree or a graduate degree.
    • If you’re working on a graduate degree in law or public administration, don’t use this application. You should apply for the Nofer Scholarship which will open in February.

    Here’s what you need to prepare:

    • If you use hearing aids, you’ll need an unaided audiogram dated no earlier than March 1, 2017. You should use this to determine your Pure Tone Average which must be 55dB or higher (don’t worry, the formula to calculate PTA is in the application).
    • If you use a cochlear implant, you meet the PTA requirement. Just include your recent CI programming report.
    • You’ll need transcripts. For high school seniors, your transcript should include grades 9 through 11 and the first semester of your senior year. For college freshmen, you’ll need your final high school transcript and first semester of college. For everyone else, it’s college transcripts. 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. The email address you’ll need to provide them is scholarships@agbell.org.
    • You’ll need to write an essay that you can upload – the prompts are in the 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.

    Driven to Achieve More Contest

    We all wake up each day, (hopefully) brush our teeth, and maybe take a look in the mirror and think: "why do I do what I do every day?" For some, it's their passion for art or travel. For some, it's the sweet reward of a new car. While for others it's the angel-faced two-year old playing with a truck. Whatever it is, we all have things that keep us moving forward to achieve more - special, unique things that make us...well...us. We want to help share and celebrate the things that make YOU want to grow, learn, and achieve more. Share your story with us for a chance to win up to $500.

    Participants are asked to submit a 3-5 minute video OR written 300-word story with an image. Videos and written stories will then be judged and 3 winners from each of our 3 categories (students, faculty, and administrators/staff) will be selected. All videos and written stories will be judged on their relevancy, authenticity, organization/coherence, creativity, and positivity.

    End Family Fire Scholarship Competition

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

    The competition challenges high school and college-aged students to create a video which speaks directly to adults and aims to bring awareness to the issue of family fire — a shooting involving an improperly stored or misused gun found in the home, which results in death or injury. The video will promote safe gun storage as a way to prevent future family fire tragedies.

    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.

    Video submissions are due on June 16, 2019. The winning entries will be announced in late July 2019 and will go live on August 8, 2019. Please submit all applications via the submission form.

    Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund

    The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund, managed by Scholarship America, was established within one week of the attacks on September 11, 2001. The Fund exists to “provide education assistance for postsecondary study to financially needy dependents of those people killed or permanently disabled as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, and during the rescue activities relating to those attacks.”

    The Fund sparked incredible generosity nationwide. With President Bill Clinton and U.S. Senator Bob Dole serving as campaign co-chairs, donations arrived from more than 20,000 corporations, foundations, educational institutions, grassroots organizations, and individuals, raising more than $108 million in the initial round of fundraising.

    To date, the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund and its subfunds have provided $137 million to more than 3,100 recipients. The Fund will continue providing assistance to families through 2030, ensuring a brighter future for even the youngest dependents of those who were lost.

    Who Is (And Is Not) Eligible
    • Families of Freedom 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, that were involved in the rescue efforts.
    • Families of Freedom Scholarships are available for children, including those 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.)
    • Children must have been born prior to September 30, 2008 to be eligible.
    • As of February 15, 2012, spouses and domestic partners are again eligible to apply for scholarships, as the expiration date on this program has been lifted. As with all of Families of Freedom scholarships, the spousal and domestic partner awards are based upon financial need.
    • 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.

    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.

    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?

      Previous first place winners are not eligible for participation.

      Essay Topic

      Mesothelioma is a terminal cancer diagnosed in close to 3,000 Americans each year. The only established cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Most victims were unwittingly exposed to asbestos at work or while serving in the military. Still others developed mesothelioma through exposure from family members coming home from work with their clothes covered in asbestos fibers.

      Unfortunately, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the annual number of mesothelioma deaths is increasing. According to experts, over 20 million people in the United States are at risk of developing malignant mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure.

      We believe it is important to get the facts out about mesothelioma and asbestos exposure, and especially, to help educate young Americans. Please address some or all of the following questions in your essay:

      • Share your personal story dealing with asbestos disease or cancer. Talk about how it affected your life and how/whether it impacted your education/career choice.
      • What do you hope to do with the education you are receiving to help cancer patients?
      • Why is raising awareness and educating the public about the dangers of asbestos and the impact of mesothelioma on a family important?
      • What would you say to someone who is fighting mesothelioma or to a family member who recently lost a loved one to the disease?

      Essay Length

      The essay must be no fewer than 750 and no more than 1,500 words long.

      Judging

      • Essays will be judged by Jennifer Gelsick, former caregiver for her father, Don Smitley, who passed away from mesothelioma in October 2013, and Lisa Hyde-Barrett, a thoracic surgery nurse.
      • Submissions will be judged on content, correctness of facts, grammar, style, and originality.
      • Judges will look for clear, original essays that are logically organized and well-supported.

      Selection Process

      Due to the popularity of social media and the ability to reach a wide number of people to educate them about mesothelioma, this year’s contest will include a public voting aspect. The judges will select the top 4 essays through the criteria listed above. The top four finalists will then have an opportunity to use social media to help determine their final placement.

      A page will be created on MesotheliomaHelp.org for the essays. A link to the essays will be provided to the finalists when they are notified of their placement.

      The top four winners will be notified on the dates found on the sidebar on the right and will have three weeks to garner votes for their essays and to request citations (links) from other academic sources. Finalists should encourage their friends and families to read their essays through sharing on Facebook, Google+ or via Twitter postings. A specific #hashtag will be used to track the activity.

      The winners will be determined by a combination of the number of votes for their essays and for the number of citations (links) from other academic works. Note that links are weighted more heavily than votes and each citation counts as 100 votes. Please note that we reserve the right to exclude any websites from the final tally that we deem inappropriate or irrelevant.

      At conclusion of the voting period, the top five finalists will be selected and notified.

    Jane Austen Society of North America Essay Contest

    JASNA conducts an annual student Essay Contest to foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen's work. Several hundred students compete for scholarship awards each year.

    The contest is open to students world-wide in three divisions:

    • High School:  students and home-schooled students enrolled at the high school level during the contest year
    • College/University:  students enrolled in at least six credit hours of course work at a junior college, college, or university during the contest year
    • Graduate School:  students enrolled during the contest year in at least three credit hours of graduate course work at a college or university leading to an advanced degree

    Membership in JASNA is not required to enter the contest.

    2019 Contest Topic


    In honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey, we welcome essays on following topic:

    Northanger Abbey can be described as a book about books. There is, of course, the well-known "defense of the novel,” but characters also discuss their reading habits, name specific novels, and even consider history books. In her works, Austen often makes use of fiction, poetry or plays, either explicitly or indirectly. Explore how she does this in Northanger Abbey. High school students may bring in another Austen novel but are not required to do so; undergraduate and graduate students must bring in one or more additional novels.

    Life Lessons Scholarship Program

    The loss of a parent or guardian is one of life’s most difficult ordeals. The emotional strain can be devastating to children and young adults. And for too many families, an untimely death also brings financial stress, making recovery all the more difficult.

    A college education is already a major financial challenge for most American families, but it becomes infinitely more difficult for a student when a parent dies, leaving little or no life insurance.

    Life insurance is an important financial safety net that parents can leave their families. Unfortunately nearly 100 million Americans don’t have life insurance, and most with coverage have far less than recommended.

    Recognizing the character and perseverance that so many young people show in the face of such adversity, Life Happens sponsors the annual Life Lessons Scholarship Program for college students and college-bound high school seniors. Qualified entrants who submit essays or videos about how the death of a parent impacted their lives are eligible for scholarship money. About two million dollars in college scholarships have been awarded over the years. The total of scholarships for the 2019 Program is $200,000; check back in 2019 for details on allocation amounts.

    Note to Students

    The Life Lessons Scholarship Program is an annual program. Applications are accepted online from February 1 to March 1. Scholarship recipients will be notified in the June/July timeframe; the full list of winners will be available around September.

    Entering is easy. First, read the rules to make sure you qualify, and then enter online. In addition to some basic information, you’ll need to submit either a 500-word essay OR a 3-minutes video discussing how the death of your parent or guardian affected your life financially and emotionally. Be sure to describe how the loss of your parent/guardian impacted your college plans, and explain how the lack of adequate life insurance coverage (or no coverage at all) impacted your family’s financial situation. To view the full description you can go to the application page here.

    If you have any questions, please email scholarship(at)lifehappens(dot)org, or call (703) 888-4440 x4447.

    National English Honor Society Common Reader Scholarship

    The Common Reader for 2017-2018 will be On Canaan's Side by Sebastian Barry, published in 2011. The novel’s complexity will challenge NEHS members; it is presented through a creative narrative via the voice of Lilly Bere, who “recounts the events of her life as though mesmerized by the vivid incompleteness of a remembered dream” (The Guardian, 2011).  Spanning multiple decades from World War I through the Gulf War, the text leads readers to understand not only Lilly and her family, but history, warfare, family, life, and death. The evocative opening lines provide a glimpse of the power of Barry’s poetic language: “Bill is gone. What is the sound of an eighty-nine-year-old heart breaking? It might not be much more than silence, and certainly a small slight sound” (Barry 3).

    The novel will engage NEHS seniors graduating in spring 2018 as the text for the competitive scholarship process. Students interested in vying for the scholarships must read the text and respond to a prompt provided by NEHS; the prompts will be available November 2017. Scholarship essays will be due by noon, CST, on Tuesday, January 16, 2018.

    Essay Prompts

    For the 2017-2018 NEHS Merit Scholarship Competition based on On Cannaan's Side by Sebastian Berry

    Prompt 1

    Explain how Lily’s journey from Ireland to America, Canaan’s side, was and was not the “Promised Land” she expected it to be. Consider the circumstances of Lily’s exit from Ireland, her marriage and relationships, her day-to-day life, and her son and grandson.

    Prompt 2

    At one point, Lily Bere remarks, “We may be immune to typhoid, tetanus, chickenpox, diphtheria, but never memory. There is no inoculation against that.” How does Lily’s memory of her life experiences give the title of the novel its irony and the text its richness?

    Prompt 3

    Discuss the ways in which Irish culture, religion, history, and folklore help form Lily Bere’s story. How do these elements help make her story universal? How and in what ways does a cultural lens help readers gain understanding of the text?

    Prompt 4

    Lily Bere counts the days “without Bill,” but her account is also about how her life has been controlled by the fate of circumstances. Explore how Lily’s recollections and interpretations of the events of her life have led her to a final decision to end it.

    Prompt 5

    Craft a personal thesis appropriate for this novel and write an essay responding to that self-designed idea. The prompt must be of sufficient significance to generate quality writing that presents important analysis, one that engages the reader in reflecting on the serious topics springing from On Canaan’s Side.

    National English Honor Society Need-Based Scholarships

    About

    NEHS wishes to support students who demonstrate outstanding academic performance in English studies, NEHS members who have been active participants in National English Honor Society, and who qualify for a need-based award due to income and/or family circumstance.

    These awards are competitive in nature; members of the Advisory Council of NEHS will evaluate applications.

    Number of Awards: Varies
    Amount of Each Award: Varies
    Total Amount Available: $10,000

    Criteria

    1. The student must be a member of NEHS in good standing of an active chapter.
    2. The student must be a high school senior graduating in the spring of 2018.
    3. The applicant must present evidence of academic achievement in English studies as well as significant involvement in NEHS activities.
    4. Applicant narrative essay and school official letters must be received by the deadline posted.
    5. Applicants must have unique circumstances that qualify consideration for a need-based scholarship, i.e., eligible for free or reduced lunch programs, family circumstances, or other mitigating factors that present financial barriers to higher education.

    Evaluation of Applications

    1. The Central Office will verify the active membership of the student(s) and chapter(s).
    2. The Advisory Council members will review all applications and rank them based on the information received.
    3. The winner(s) of the scholarships will receive a check for $1,000 to be applied toward college or university expenses.

    Three Application Documents

    1. Student Narrative Essay

    An applicant-written narrative submitted to NEHS outlining the academic accomplishments and goals the writer has achieved and the goals she/he seeks to achieve in the future. The essay should discuss the passion with which the student engages in English studies and how that passion will be nurtured in the future. This award is competitive, so the narrative should clearly outline the specific situation(s) that qualify the applicant for a scholarship based on need. Highest consideration will be given to those submitting narratives that reflect creativity, sincerity, and clear delineation of need. Include specific information about higher education plans, i.e., college/university enrollment, assumed major area of study, career goals, etc. Outstanding writing skills should also be reflected; poorly written narratives may disqualify the applicant.

It is not necessary to send personal details from a FAFSA; rather, the school official must confirm in writing the student qualifies for free/reduced lunch programs or other assistance, the family circumstances that currently limit financial resources, and/or other unique situations meriting consideration for this scholarship. The letter should go beyond factual information and should include the writer’s impressions of the student’s character and motivation; anecdotal examples of the student’s engagement in academics and NEHS are encouraged.

    3. NEHS Chapter Advisor Recommendation Letter

    A letter on school stationery from the NEHS Chapter Advisor detailing the applicant’s academic success in English studies, how the student has been a positive participant in NEHS, and how she/he has risen above challenging circumstances must also be submitted.

    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 2019 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.

    OMAAT Scholarship

    Scholarship details

    We offer scholarships for college students, helping to free up funds so they can work on passion projects and explore new ideas. Whether you want to start a new business or participate in a humanitarian trip abroad, we want you to have the financial freedom to succeed. Our passion is to help every person, regardless of budget, afford the experience of visiting new places and expanding their horizons through travel. What’s yours?

    Eligibility

    2-year or 4-year undergraduate degree-seeking full-time students who are currently enrolled or with acceptance, or part-time undergraduate students with verifiable employment of 20+ hours/week.

    Scholarship amount

    $3,000 annual scholarship

    How to Enter

    No matter what pathway you ultimately take in life, being able to clearly communicate is an important skill. The ways in which people share information are changing, and we believe that ideas and enthusiasm are more important than format. As such, there are two different ways to apply:

    1. Write something — You can choose a casual blog-style or a more formal essay, and aim for ~1,000 words (if you need more, use them, if you don’t, please don’t feel like you need to fill pages). Either way, your grammar and punctuation should be impeccable. We’re all for relaxed formats and breaking rules to set the tone, but draw the line at “apostrophe abuse.”
    2. Make something — Writing is important, but there are other ways to get your point across. If you’d like to submit a video instead, that’s great. The same notes apply; a casual style is fine, but you’ll want to showcase crisp and clear communication skills. Please keep videos to under three minutes, and provide a written transcription.

    With either format, please also include:

    • Your name
    • Your email address (please use your school email address)
    • Your enrolled school
    • Your major, and why you chose that branch of study (or what you’re leaning towards if undeclared)

    Essay Topic

    The skills you develop in college can provide an amazing foundation for doing cool stuff in the world, but as with many things in life, you get out of it what you put into it. A desire to hustle, combined with strong financial responsibility, can enable incredible things.

    So, we want to hear about the cool stuff you’d like to do. We’re big proponents of “giving forward”, and would like this scholarship to help propel others to do the same.

    We’re not necessarily looking for something extravagant or grand; giving forward and sharing your talents with the world doesn’t have to be monumental. One Mile at a Time helps people achieve their aspirations and travel better, in a way that doesn’t break the bank. We’re not solving global problems (though we try and do our part to help where we can), but we are helping to educate, inform, and inspire.

    Your passion may be leading you to certain branches of research, or to a career that enables you to pay the bills while you pursue your passion project on the side. It could lead to starting your own business, or becoming part of a massive team chipping away at a problem. Your passion needn’t be related to travel, though we, of course, think meeting new people and exploring new cultures provides a valuable perspective.

    Please address all three points in your submission:

    • What are you passionate about, and how can you leverage that enthusiasm to give forward as you go through the world?
    • What skills do you have (or will develop in school) to enable you to do those things in a sustainable way?
    • What steps are you taking to build healthy financial habits that will give you more flexibility after college?

    Organization for Autism Research Scholarship

    The Schwallie Family Scholarship:

    Supports students attending two or four year universities. Schwallie applicants typically pursue degrees at four year universities and have a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome if diagnosed under the DSM-IV, or ASD (Level 1 Supports) if diagnosed under the DSM-5.

    The Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship:

    Supports students attending two or four year universities, life skills or postsecondary programs, or vocational, technical, or trade schools. Hussman applicants typically make up the pool of talented students who face daily challenges related to autism and attend programs that assist in skill-building, job-readiness, and other transition-related skills.

    Eligibility

    Any individual with an established autism diagnosis and who will be attending an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education in the United States for the Fall 2019/Spring 2020 semesters is eligible to apply.

    Eligible individuals need to be enrolled on a full-time basis or be working toward certification or accreditation in a particular field (e.g., studying to be a paralegal, chef, etc.). Past recipients of a Schwallie Family Scholarship/Lisa Higgins Hussman scholarship or immediate family members of any person serving on OAR’s Board of Directors or Scientific Council are not eligible to apply.

    Proof of Diagnosis

    Due to the sensitive nature of medical information and the volume of applications we receive, the application process assumes the applicant has an autism diagnosis from a licensed medical professional. Once we identify finalists, we require each applicant to submit copies of the medical documentation that established their autism diagnosis. This is not part of the application process. Before applying, however, each applicant should review the proof of diagnosis criteria:

    • Clearly stated diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder
    • Diagnosis conducted by a licensed medical professional
    • Information about testing or evaluations conducted by the medical professional (ie. CARS, ADOS, Vineland, psychiatric examination)

    Please refer to this checklist to ensure that your documentation contains all the information OAR needs.

    Note: Based on recent changes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) criteria for autism spectrum diagnoses, OAR will be asking all scholarship finalists to verify that they meet criteria for either a DSM-IV or DSM-5 diagnosis.

    Application

    We exclusively use an online application system. Using a drop down box, applicants will select either the Schwallie Family Scholarship or the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship. Our scholarship application contains basic contact information, date of diagnosis, proof of enrollment, and three short essay questions. Students are expected to complete the applications on their own.

    In the case of applicants for the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship whose written communications skills may be more limited, we require two letters of recommendation. The first letter of recommendation must come from a teacher, counselor, coach, or other non-relative. The second letter letter must come from a parent or guardian in the form of a personal letter of support.

    For Schwallie Family Scholarship applicants, one letter of recommendation may be submitted if the applicant chooses to do so.

    Review

    The Scholarship Review Committee is comprised of members of OAR’s Board of Directors, and augmented by selected parents of children with autism and self-advocates. Each complete application is reviewed. Incomplete submissions are disqualified.

    The review proceeds in two phases: (1) Initial Review and (2) Final Review. Approximately 10 percent of applicants advance to the Final Review. From there, the Scholarship Review Committee identifies intended scholarship recipients and a list of alternates should a primary candidate subsequently not qualify for any reason.

    Reviewers base their evaluation and recommendations on the personal story as conveyed by the essay’s original content: challenges that have been overcome, future aspirations, the importance of the chosen field of study, and how the scholarship will help achieve academic, career, and personal goals.

    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.

    Profile in Courage Essay Contest

    Contest Information

    In Profiles in Courage, John F. Kennedy recounted the stories of eight U.S. senators who risked their careers to do what was right for the nation. These leaders demonstrated political courage by taking a stand for the public good in spite of pressure by interest groups, their political party, or even their constituents.

    Roothbert Fund Scholarships

    The Roothbert Fund was created in 1958 by Albert and Toni Roothbert to help men and women in need of financial aid to further their education. The principal focus of The Fund is its Scholarships Program, through which it makes grants for undergraduate or graduate study at accredited colleges or universities. Scholarships may only be applied to study at an accredited institution based in the United States. The Fund seeks candidates who are "motivated by spiritual values," and works to foster fellowship among them.

    The Fund is a small, nearly all-volunteer scholarship fund based in New York City, which awards yearly grants and works to foster fellowship among grant recipients. Once a year, the Fund accepts applications for grants, which include essays, transcripts and recommendations. From these written applications, the Fund identifies a group of finalists to be invited for a brief personal interview. On the basis of this interview, the Fund typically selects about 20 new scholarship recipients each year.

    ELIGIBILITY

    Roothbert Fund scholarships are open to all in the United States regardless of sex, age, color, nationality or religious background. While the Fund does not emphasize any particular form of religious practice or worship, it seeks to provide support to persons motivated by spiritual values. The Fund has awarded grants to persons entering a wide range of careers. However, preference will be given to those who can satisfy high scholastic requirements and are considering careers in education. For more information, applicants should read with care the Founders Prologue in the History and Mission of the Fund.

    LOCATION OF APPLICANTS

    As a rule, the Roothbert Fund does not make Scholarship grants EXCEPT to applicants whose current or permanent address is located in one of the following states of the United States and applicants planning to move to one of such states prior to March 1 of the year in which the application is made: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, or North Carolina. It is probably counter-productive to submit an application if you live outside this area.

    SIZE OF GRANTS

    Grants are small (averaging $2,000-$3,000) and are meant to be supplementary. Aid is given for the ensuing school year. Applicants who receive fellowships are eligible to apply for renewals of the same amount if they are continuing their degree the following year.

    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.

    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.

    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. Note that applications for the Clara Carter Higgins Scholarship, GCA Awards for Summer Environmental Studies, Elizabeth Gardner Norweb Scholarship, and Mary T. Carothers Scholarship are considered together. Interested students should submit only one application. Selection: Selection is by members of the GCA Scholarship Committee. PLEASE NOTE: ONLY ONE GCA SCHOLARSHIP, FELLOWSHIP OR AWARD MAY BE APPLIED FOR ANNUALLY.

    Fund: The Clara Carter Higgins Fund and the GCA Summer Environmental Studies Scholarship Fund are managed by the GCA.

    Contact: The Garden Club of America, attn: Scholarship Applications, 14 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022-1006. Phone: 212-753-8287 / email: scholarshipapplications@gcamerica.org

    The Lark Health Scholarship

    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?

Additional information is included on Big 5, DISC, and numerous other systems - some serious and some purely for entertainment.

    To further opportunities for those interested in personality type and theory, undergraduate and graduate students who will be attending an accredited university or college are eligible to apply for this scholarship. The scholarship is available to those who be accepted into an accredited university at least at the freshman level. Applications in all major fields of study are eligible.

    Applicants must submit an essay of at least 1000 words. In this essay, you should communicate a personal statement about the use of personality type systems. Some ideas of things to consider:

The only important thing is that your essay be focused on the use of personality type systems.
