College is often described as the greatest years of your life, but this is no longer true for many students due to rising costs. 

This scholarship aims to support college students by helping to ease the burden of the costs of college. The average college student now pays $22,698 for out-of-state tuition at a public college or $38,185 at a private college. Combined with the costs of living, supply expenses, and low wages, the average student struggles to finance their education. 

Any high school, undergraduate, or graduate student may apply for this exclusive scholarship opportunity.

If granted $1,000 I would split it into the 4 major aspects of my life: religion, family, Barnes and Noble, and education. I would separate 2.5% of the amount as donations because in my religion it is customary to donate 2.5% of one’s salary. Though I do not have a set salary at the moment I try to prioritize donating to others as much as I can, whether that’s through donating my time, my money, or my experiences and knowledge. I would then use another 25% towards my family because they are the sole reason I have made it into college and am able to partly afford it to the best of my ability. This would be a small thank you, that could never be fully expressed in monetary value. Furthermore, I would take a trip to Barnes and Noble and peruse through Eileen Hoover, Karen McManus, and the selection of self-help journals and bookmarks with pressed flowers. Reading has been the main supporter in my life and has helped me take a break from the acts of Macbeth and the articles regarding Darwin’s Theory of evolution that surround me during the school day. Finally, I will gear the rest of my $1,000 towards my tuition this fall at Boston University. I know that I will be provided with various opportunities that will aid me in my further education in medical school, allowing me to make an impact on those that need it most.
