Youth Forward Scholarship 2017 – Pawsome Way to Help

 

Great job to the both of you and congratulations!

Ideally there would be no need for scholarship contests, and each and every citizen would be assured a free college education.

As you know, a high school degree does not go too far these days, and to limit one’s access to education and their God given potential because of a lack of resources should not be what we as a country stand for. So, this is also up to you — to declare that you wish for college tuition be granted as a right and not just an option for some, but a right for all. I do hope you will get involved in bringing about this change. Bless you all.

Now to announce the winners. We initially set out to choose one winner, with the idea that the votes would play a big part in choosing the winner.

And instead of offering one $1,500 scholarship prize, we will be offering a $1,000 scholarship prize to each of the winners. So without further ado the winners are,

California High School & College Scholarship Opportunity: Youth Forward

College is more expensive than ever, especially in California. After the budget cuts enacted by the legislature, even public universities such as the flagship University of California at Berkeley and University of California at Los Angeles are almost out of reach of the middle class, as are our community colleges and the quality California state system, such as San Francisco State University. Today’s high school seniors and even those who are already enrolled in colleges here in the Golden State are always on the lookout for new opportunities to earn scholarship money. (more…)

California Education Scholarship: Highlights

Volunteerism is increasingly important in American society. Indeed, most of today’s High Schools require some type of volunteer work in order to graduate. Colleges and universities as well seek to encourage students to “give back” to their communities.

This scholarship seeks to reward a few deserving youth for their commitment to the spirit of volunteerism. The application is handled in essay format. To apply, applicants must submit an essay of less than 500 words in Microsoft Word format. Questions to be answered in the essay include the area chosen for volunteer service, the hours per week, the biggest challenge, the most satisfying experience, and what has been learned by the volunteer engagement.
