If I could go back in time, I’d definitely choose to be a community college student all over again. Some of the… (Show more)

Since taking over this site’s scholarship duties earlier this year, I’ve read a lot of scholarship applications. Like, A LOT a lot. And yet, I’ve probably skipped twice as many as I’ve read—sometimes based just upon the award’s name.   I know: You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, nor should you dismiss a scholarship based on its name.

By the end of my freshman year in college, I pretty much knew my 5-year plan. I would graduate, complete my school’s 4+1 master’s program, give back to my community, and work at the hospital where I’ve interned since high school.   Now that I’m in my junior year, I’m ready to switch my plan up—to avoid falling into the post-college career path… (Show more)
