Purpose and Impact of Scholarship
Scholarships are one of the greatest ways of helping children who, by a number of reasons, cannot bear the expenses of education mainly that of college studies. Some students might find it difficult to understand how scholarships can be beneficial from them not only in providing the financial assistance but also for many factors. scholarships for students is a sign that they are doing great in their academics and using this, they are earning their right and a chance to continue the studies further. With scholarships, the student is represented respectfully and during hiring processes, such students stand out brightly. Scholarships also help students to be admitted into selective universities of their own choice since it highlights the academic achievements of the student, which makes university officials want to select the student.
There are a number of scholarships available for students who wish to…
My past has shown my willingness to maximize the opportunities
presented to me, and this scholarship will give me an opportunity I would
not otherwise be afforded. I have in the past overcome obstacles. In
classes which the subject has not come easily to me I have found extra help
and spent extra time to do well. In particular, there was a math class in
which the concepts seemed like a foreign language. Yet I was able to work
with the teacher and study extra material to not only pass the class, but
pass it to the best of my ability. This shows my willingness to not only
work hard, but to work hard when there is a challenge. I believe anybody
can do well when the subject matter comes easy to them, but the true merit
of one's ability is shown when their back is up against the wall.…
For example, she orchestrated means to create eBay brand awareness throughout the world. She has proven human resources skills because she was hired out of house and has remained at the eBay helm since she started there. Whitman understands market forces and knows how to use them to her advantage and to the advantage of her company. She knows what her shareholders need and how to satisfy them and the numbers prove it. Moreover, Whitman has accomplished all this for eBay while also serving on the Board of Directors for Proctor and Gamble and of Dreamworks.
As a female student of business and economics with a strong interest in information technology, I emulate Meg Whitman. While I may not be named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people I do hope to influence all the people who I work with as a business owner and manager. Meg Whitman's name…

Currently, I major in human resource management. Within the next eight (8) years, I hope to be through with a doctorate in a human resource management or development related field. This will give me an edge as a professional in human resource management and/or development. In my opinion, a doctorate in this field will also provide me with a special understanding of the various global workforce issues. Career wise, within the next twelve (12) years, I see myself as an experienced human resource executive ready to assume any challenging leadership position in workforce development.
Currently, I work as a bank teller. Based on my exceptional performance, I have also been granted a role as an assistant supervisor. In addition to granting me an opportunity to interact with diverse clients, my job as a teller has also helped me understand the internal workings of a large organization. As a human resource…
A naturally devoted individual, my commitment to my academic course of study and to the health care profession will become further evident in graduate school, where I will meet with esteemed professors, mentors, and specialists who can help me perfect my skills and find a niche within the nursing community. While in graduate school, I intend to take advantage of internship or residency opportunities and to participate in volunteer work and community service activities.
My interest in nursing stems partly from my first-hand encounters with the medical profession and community. On the one hand, teams of caring and qualified professionals have inspired me to step into their footsteps in the service of people in need of attention. On the other hand, inconsistencies, glitches, and weaknesses in the system have urged me to make a difference and apply my knowledge, skills, and experience to activism within the medical community. As a…
The knowledge and specialized skills thus acquired can serve to achieve my future goals in this field of study, and help me play an important part in society as a competent individual, involving me in matters of actual and practical interest.
I believe that specialized education can thus greatly benefit me in my overall future professional achievements. It will consolidate my knowledge and experience so that these may be applied afterwards during my career.
To this purpose, my interest for my field of studies and my desire to excel as a real professional are coupled with the aspiration to be able to actively contribute in the future to these studies and practices, and perhaps influence further developments.
For the reasons stated above, the grant of a scholarship within the university will allow me the financial support necessary for my personal development as an individual and also make it possible for…
To adequately teach these skills requires little more than a commitment from the teacher or curriculum monitor. It is a matter of framing assignments in the appropriate manner -- instead of simply requiring a: esearch Paper on an Aspect of Costa ica, work in a preliminary annotated bibligoraphy section that requires the appropriate vetting and analysis of the sources; require several types of sources, and explain why. Above all, since the research indivates that the major reasons student's fail to use robust informational resources is time management and self-management (read -- laziness and taking the shortcut), it is important to instruct on how to do research, how not to plagiarize, and what the actual point of primnary and secondary research are to the process of self-actualization and broad knowledge. These same studies show that if students are given relevancy as part of their explanation, they are more likely to acquire…

One fourteen-year-old girl in particular came in and I heard her say that she wasn't talking to her mother. Apparently, she had gone to a tattoo parlor to get a tongue piercing even though her mother had refused to sign the consent form. After the doctor removed the piercing, she refused to talk to anybody and she was obviously very angry at everybody. I spent a few minutes talking to her alone and I showed her some pictures in a medical journal that the doctor gave me.
When I showed her the second picture of a girl with a horribly swollen tongue (and face) in a hospital emergency room, she screamed and shouted "Why are you trying to gross me out?" I showed her the description under the picture which said
"Streptococcal infection caused by oral piercing." After that, she took the whole magazine from me to look at the…

In life the experiences that everyone goes through will shape who they are as people. This is because, how we overcome various challenges, will have an influence on what direction we are taking our lives. In my case, I have always had a sense of compassion and caring for other people. This was developed from an early age by working with others and seeing the difference that I could make. Then, once I began to study the life of Florence Nightingale is when I knew that I had to become a nurse.
At first, I started out by receiving my Associates degree in Respiratory Therapy. While this was occurring, I was actively working as a nurse's assistant in the medical field. Once I completed this degree, is when I decided to become a Registered Nurse by receiving my Bachelors.
In the program, I excelled and showed tremendous…
Zabel (2004) proposes an alternative solution that does not involve mandatory courses or the separate academic focus on library science as a stand-alone course. Instead, Zabel suggests that academic research requirements in substantive courses be adapted as necessary to ensure an appropriate and beneficial process for teaching research skills and informational literacy but strictly within the framework of substantive courses. The author also points out that it is likely much easier to train professors to emphasize formal research skills in their courses than to train library science professionals to become academic instructors, which she suggests is another element overlooked by Owusu-Ansah (Zabel, 2004).

I also work at a nonprofit organization called Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES!) that is involved in training other nonprofit organizations. Yes! advocates on behalf of youth and helps foster partnerships between youths and the adult volunteers to create positive and meaningful changes in the community. The organization is built partly on the belief that many traditional organizations ignore the important role that younger people can play in volunteer work in achieving beneficial community changes. In my role, I have had the opportunity to help work to change general perceptions about the value of teenagers in the community, and I have been able to help demonstrate what teens can do to help create change when they are given the opportunity and basic…
Great technology and market opportunity are only a few of the factors that determine success. The company must still execute effectively to exploit the opportunity before the competition does or before market dynamics that presented the opportunity change. This is why I believe a great analyst also needs the ability analyze the financial health of a company and the industry it participates in as well as the skills to understand and predict the equities fluctuations in the market.

I will be more than generous in sharing the extra knowledge I will have received with some of my colleagues and co-workers.

I am committed to personal development and greater education for several a reasons. The one that most closely references the theme of this essay, "How does my education affect my family?" is honor. I wish to honor my family for their social, psychological and financial contributions to my life and my education. I would not be where I am today if my family had not come forward voluntarily and taken care of me when my Mother and Father were unable and unwilling to do so.
My grandmother, who is now 78, raised me from infancy when my mother and father abandoned me. With the love and commitment of my grandmother and my uncle and aunt, I have been able to succeed in a nontraditional education, which was supported financially through scholarship and emotionally through perseverance on my part and the support of my family. I have now…
Why I am Applying:
I have two motives in applying for this course. The main motive is my personal goal and ambitions, and the second is the core values on which those ambitions are based. Both these have created an aptitude in me for nursing. The basic motive for me to become a nurse is based on my nature and core values that have been born with me. I am a giving person who has been used to empathize with those in pain and need. My childhood experiences have made me think of the better activities and developments in my activities that somehow can alleviate pain in others. The core value is that I must spend my life being useful to others in need, bringing them succor in need.
A medical education is far beyond my economic and other situations. Becoming a nurse can full fill the nature…

This is counter to the points made later in the article regarding distance education theory (Najjar, 2008) and its impact on a more individualized approach to distance instruction. Arguably the impact of higher-speed collaborative technologies of which the Internet is the most pervasive are shifting these theories and making dialogue-based theories, including social networking-based concepts of shared collaboration more relevant and effective. The use of collaborative classrooms online for distance learning is forcing the development of entirely new frameworks regarding the theories of scholarship in distance education.
One notable exception from this article is the work of Dr. Badrul Kahn (2003) and his eight dimensions of distance learning. These dimensions fully integrate the role of technology in enabling less didactic and more scaffolding-based or individualized plans and approaches to distance education (Khan, 2003). The integration of pedagogical strategies on the part of instructors with assessment of the extent of autonomy…

Nursing and Scholarship
Will Two-Hour Turning and Positioning Decrease Pressure Ulcers in the Elderly Population in Nursing Homes?
In order for a modern nurse to be both clinically and practically qualified to give exemplary patient care, they must be able to assimilate knowledge quickly and preserve the tenets of nursing while still excelling at the science of the field. . Within the subject of nursing, there are often times in which different aspects of the practice must be analyzed by using primary research from other scholars (Thoun, 2009). Scholarship is continually important for the nursing model, particularly so nurses may keep current in new methods, practice and techniques. At the locus of this model, though, is the extrapolation of technique -- the blend of art and science, and how the nurses of future generations will benefit from the experience of the current generation (Alligood, 2002). To do this, however, requires…

The work entitled "Environment and Diversity in Community Health" would be a likely subject for publication in the Cambridge Journal of Public Health and Nutrition. Educational courses that could be developed upon the basis of this article include a course on proper diet, a course on proper exercise, and a course on health living choices. The rationale chosen for the publication of this article is based on oyer (1990) who holds that one of the four areas of scholarship critical to academic work is that of "discovery where new and unique knowledge is generated."

College Scholarship Application
I was only eighteen, but the first-born in a single-parent family of four, when I enrolled at Molloy College in 2009. My family attaches high value to education, and my mother was determined to send me to college at all costs. The entry fee was relatively high and it was really sad to see her struggle with my siblings' fees the entire semester. I imagined that a repeat of the situation in the next semester, and then the next, would be the beginning of the collapse of my siblings' academic goals; something that I was not prepared to see happen, and I was certain my mother wasn't either. I secured a part-time job, taking advantage of my employer's flextime policy to balance between school and work. I have, in this way, been able to meet some of my own, as well as my siblings' basic educational expenses…
Esthetics scholarship application “why is professional skincare my passion"
The skincare profession, at one time, thrived on mysteriousness. ‘Facialists’, ‘estheticians’ and other specialists in this field guarded their secrets well. Mystery ingredients were used on customers’ skin, with authentic ritual authority, and customers were ordered to come back from time to time to ensure long-term results. This age was characterized by intensely-perfumed creams, flashy gold-and-pink packages, and an abundance of brands with French-sounding names. Millenials, however, chiefly on account of the novel digital technology, is better aware and has greater demands. Twenty-first century consumers are well-read on the subjects of health, skincare and welfare; this awareness can empower the skincare industry via a novel responsiveness and sense of urgency in selling products (Ferraro, 2014).

Also in terms of financial considerations, the economic agents often engage in processes of downsizing. These are understandable from an organizational standpoint, but they negatively impact the employees -- my generation more than the older generations. In this order of ideas, most of the companies which downsize their staff members apply the rule of LIFO -- last in, first out. This basically means that we, as the latest and youngest additions to organizations, will be the first to be fired. The actual act of being downsized or the simple threat of it also impacts our generation more than the older generations. To better explain, most representatives of my generation do not yet have a house of their own and continue to leave in rented facilities.

real encounter with nursing. The encounter occurred when I first accompanied my mother to the hospital to get her treatment. That day, I felt an urgent need to become a nurse. This is because I saw that most of the nurses and other health professionals in the hospital were always pressed for time and patients, including my mother, had to wait for long periods of time before getting attended to. That experience revealed to me a gap that I was confident I could help fill in however little way I could. Realizing that the only way I could get to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse was through education, I started putting a lot of effort in school and my academic performance is proof of that. However, being brought up by a single mother compounded what was already a difficult situation. My mother had to go through a lot…

Despite significant progress in addressing institutionalized racism and other public policies that operate to the disadvantage of oppressed and marginalized groups, the recent upsurge in race-related incidents across the country underscores the fact that much more remains to be done to eliminate these oppressive and inequitable policies from American society.

Student athletes do not even necessarily 'give back' to the university with four years of attendance. Basketball players flee the ranks to 'go pro' and even those who do not go to the NBA may struggle and not emerge with a degree. hat students are likely to show greater financial long-term loyalty to their university -- a student who excels academically and remembers college as the best years of his or her life? Or a student who does not graduate and sees college a stepping-stone to a professional sports career or simply as a place that discarded him or her because a sports career did not materialize as promised?

Transformational leaders have been found to be more effective and under analysis possess certain factors including higher levels of morality and of self-sacrifice and ethics. Transformational leaders empower and motivate those whom they lead and put their own interests aside placing the group interests first. The most effective leaders are those with transformational and transactional leadership skills. There are various models of leadership that are used by today's strategic management in the organization.
The following chapters in this book will delve into these various leadership styles, which include but are not limited to such as transformational, transactions, contingency, and other models of leadership that are effective in leading today's organizations. These leadership models can be used singularly or in combination as effective forms of leadership in the organization. Charismatic leadership is another leadership model that is very similar to the transformational leadership model and is one that is comprised by the combination of the capacities of the leader including such as self-confidence and moral conviction as well as in the capacity to articulate goals and visions for the organization.
Leadership theory was first researched around 1910 in the attempt to ascertain what traits of personality, intelligence or other factors were associated with those who lead in order to distinguish the qualities of future leaders. However, researchers in 1948 determined that there were not any specific common traits that could be used to define leaders. Following World War II other researchers set out to attempt to determine the various types of leadership styles or behavior that could identify leader and provide insights for effectiveness of leaders. These studies were such that made predictions about the relationships between certain leadership styles and productivity however, these studies were again unsuccessful in providing an explanation for the effectiveness of leadership.
Research conducted later started by examining leadership styles as a function of performance and was focused on an examination of the interactions between leaders and those whom are being led. The primary focus in the late 1980s was the contingency model approach and which emphasized the significance of any given situation including such as the nature of the environment, the nature of tasks, as well as power distribution based on power theory in which the functions of leadership take place. This was the dominant theme in theories including Fiedler's Theory, the Vroom and Yetton's Decision Theory and the Path Goal Theory. It was noted that each of this theories are leadership-oriented theories since the focus is the actions and attitudes of the leader.
1. What were the historical contexts for the composition of the J Source, the E Source, the D Source (briefly) and the P Source?
Based on their different styles, biblical scholars original believed that Moses combined two different sources to write the early chapters of Genesis, 200 years of research by 539 BCE determined that there were four different authors, termed J (Yahwist which describes as "primitive anthropomorphic view of God), E (Elohist which "shows a deeper awareness of God's distance), D (Deuteronomist which "reflects the later and more sensitive concern of the prophets to the ethical demands and oneness of God over the whole world") and P (Priestly which "brings together the complex institutional, cultic, and legal aspects of Israelite faith") (p. 97), respectively, a system that is still followed today.

Within the field of psychology, I hope to qualify as a marriage counselor - a decision I made after I experienced the pain of my parents' divorce and subsequent break up of my family. For it was at this time that I realized the important role that family plays in an individual's sense of psychological well-being.
As a first step to achieving my career ambition and dream, I plan to attend the University of Findlay, from where I hope to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, followed by a Master's Degree. However, I find that the assistance of a scholarship would go a long way in helping me achieve my educational and career goals. I am, therefore, applying for a scholarship with the sincere hope that my request will be given due consideration.

According to Ray, those explanations ignore what more recent research has identified as the principal cause of the witchcraft hysteria in Salem: religious paranoia, intolerance, and persecution.
In that regard, Ray details the historical record showing that the principal origin of the Salem Witch Trials was in the intense antagonism on the part of Reverend Samuel Parris toward village residents who refused to join his congregation. For months before the accusations about witchcraft against Tituba, Parris railed against the unconverted as "wicked" and referred to the "chosen" members of his church and those who had "betrayed" it and who sought to destroy his village church and, ultimately, the entire church of England. Ray also notes, significantly, that all of the young girls whose accusations were the initial spark for the witch craze were members of prominent church families. By the time their accusations first surfaced, Parris's audience had been well…
The garden was located at the back of the unit, and instead of watching television or aimlessly wandering the halls, I witnessed the residents spend hours tilling the soil, planting seeds, tending the young shoots, harvesting the fruits of their labor, and finally cooking and serving their creations. What can be more inspiring than knowing you can feed yourself and your friends? The change in their appearance was remarkable. Gardening and cooking was not just a hobby, it was a metaphor for their ability to regenerate themselves in mind and body.
My dream is to own my own restaurant, a place where all of the food on the menu is grown and raised on-premises. I would also like to employ members of the community along with professional hospitality staff to serve in the restaurant and tend the garden.

I believe that knowledge from both these areas complements each other significantly. In order to be the most effective practitioner in one's field one needs to acquire the scholarly knowledge related to it. This can help one to gain some much-needed insight into the theories and methods related to one's practice. Likewise if one endeavors to become the most well informed expert in one's field one needs to acquire experience from working in it. This can help one to apply whatever was learned in one's scholarly pursuits to the test.
Currently my research focuses on the working alliances in home healthcare. Working alliances can be studied in many areas of healthcare, including medicinal therapy, social services, long-term care, etc. My hope is that whatever information I gain through conducting my research will enhance the outcome between practitioner and patient. I wish to be someone in the field who is capable…
Red White and lack -- ook Review
In Red, White, and lack, Professor Gary . Nash offers a revisionist account of intercultural relations in early America. Nash demonstrates that intercultural relations were not always marked by aggression and hostility, as is often suggested by the dominant historical narrative of the United States, which is highly Euro-centric. Through his examination and synthesis of the most recent scholarship regarding the experiences of Native-Americans and African-Americans in early America, much of which is based on first-person accounts given by Native Americans, African-Americans, and European settlers of the period, Nash shows that intercultural relations were often marked by a sense of mutual appreciation and the "live and let live" mentality of the frontier.
Thesis: Through his expert command of the historical scholarship regarding early American history, Nash is able to place the more specialized recent scholarship regarding race relations in a wider historiographical context.…

Breach of Contract Order
Breach of Contract with Smith and the University
A breach of contract has occurred in this situation from a legal standpoint because by law this occurs when a party (like Mr. Smith) fails to carry out, accurately and unerringly his responsibilities, however, in the current situation the negotiations for both sides were made ("Breach of contract," n.d.). For example, when X University replaced their head coach with Smith, consent was made by the official commissioners of the University and guaranteed him that a bare minimum sum of $10,000 would be accessible for basketball scholarships during Smith's first year as a coach for them. In conclusion, on January 7, Smith and X University agreed and signed a hand written agreement where Smith pledged to serve as coach for one year which would start on September 1. The University agreed to pay Smith an income of $14,500, too,…

Not only does he display his knowledge of race relations but also his understanding of classism and how the government treats poor people. More specifically, Dyson utilizes scholarship to points out the failings of the Bush administration and the American government as it pertained to Hurricane Katrina and its response to the victims who were overwhelmingly black and poor. The Scholar in Eric Dyson also presents statistics and facts associated with the population of New Orleans.
Scholarly and literary Criticism of Come Hell or High ater
Indeed Dyson's book has received a great deal of scholarly and literary criticism. As it pertains to scholarly criticism professor of history at UCLA Gary B.

Secondly, the report alluded to by CSC asserts that in "gender symmetric" sports there are "far more scholarships available for women (32,656) than for men (20,206)." The third bullet point in the CSC press release points out that men's volleyball is the "by far the most difficult" scholarship at the Division I level; there are reportedly 489 high school athletes for every full ride NCAA scholarship.
The "underlying" data that CSC used to put together their press release comes from two NCAA reports: "1981-82-2006-07 NCAA Sports Sponsorship and Participation Rate Report" and "2006-07 NCAA Division I Manual." Also factored into the report is data from the national Federation of State High School Associations. And so what is the College Sports Council calling on the federal government -- and the Department of Education (DOE) -- to do? The press release says that "women are accorded far more opportunities to compete and…

The pursuit of higher education has been a lifelong goal of mine. The hard work that I have put into building a solid academic resume reflects my character and my dedication to self-improvement. It is imperative, however, that am able to receive some assistance in order to continue pursuit of my educational goals. I am simply not able to fund the pursuit of my dreams on my own at this point. Thus, I feel that a scholarship is not simply something that I would like to have, it is something that I need to have.
I see my university education as a stepping stone to a brilliant career. My interest in business and economics will take me to interesting professions. As I make my contribution to the betterment of the world, I will be an outstanding corporate citizen and a stellar representative of my alma mater. The debt of gratitude…
Thus, the college has not only developed values, but has put them into practice using the preceding methods.
What are the greatest challenges facing the institution?
As previously mentioned, the challenges facing the institution are similar to those facing other institutions, including client services, problem technology, professionalism, and environmental vulnerability (Baldridge et al., 2000, p.128-130). In the area of client services, Readers State College has difficulty meeting the needs of all clients, whose diverse demands are often too great for the college to handle. While "the clients demand and often obtain significant input into the institutional decision-making processes" (Baldridge et al., 2000, p.129), that input is not necessary the same for all clients, as the college has not yet found a good balance regarding how to handle the demands from all clients. In the area of problem technology, the college's problems are much the same, as clients demanding different actions…
Also, the stress related to living one day at a time makes it even more difficult to study and to think and plan for my future and that of my children. As you can probably understand, this is only part of my reason for attempting to obtain a scholarship which will help immensely with not only my financial responsibilities to the school but also to my family.
I am currently enrolled in the Hospitality Management Program here at the school for several reasons. First, I have always found it very enjoyable and worthwhile to be in contact with persons from diverse cultures, mostly because I have discovered that it helps me to develop as a person and to understand why certain people act certain ways in relation to their traditions. Second, after working hard in a restaurant for two long years, a place that obviously provides service to many people…
School of Social Work
Applying for Scholarships
There are a number of careers available in the world today, and the majority of them require an advanced degree in college. In order to obtain the proper education and reach their goals, many students find it necessary to apply for a variety of scholarships. This letter concentrates on obtaining scholarships so that I can continue my education in the field of Social Work, as I have a strong desire to work with children and families in urban communities.
In order for me to continue my education, I must receive financial assistance. I am the father of four children, three of which are newborn triplets, and am the sole supporter of my family. My wife is currently unable to work due to our recent additions, but continues to provide emotional support in my educational endeavors.
My interest in helping others is rooted in…
Caring for others has also been my primary means of self-expression, the one way I have been able to give back to the community and hopefully enhance the lives of others. As a LPN I have been successful but I know that I would be a more effective health care professional as an RN. With advanced nursing credentials I will enjoy an increased level of responsibility and the option to specialize in a select field of health care. Moreover, as an African-American female I can contribute positively to the diversity and caliber of the administrative nursing team at my health care institution and offer a diversity of perspective and opinion when I interact with patients and coworkers.
Although my primary ambition is to heal others by working directly with patients in a professional setting, I also hope to participate in hospital administrative and decision-making procedures. Nurses have the potential to…
Sister Marie Simone oach
A number of prominent nursing theorists have been an influential force in improving nursing practice over the years, with Sister Marie Simone oach being among them. Sister oach is best known for her so-called "six C's" of nursing care: Compassion, Competence, Confidence, Conscience, Commitment, and Comportment. Her work has been absorbed into the mainstream of nursing theory over the years and her contributions to nursing practice have been significant. This paper examines the contributions made by Sister oach to the body of nursing scholarship for the improvement of nursing practice, her contributions to the body of nursing scholarship for the improvement of healthcare and how this nurse ethicists can inform nursing research for the nurse practitioner.

Over the decades, the nurse has been playing a critical role in determining the underlying amounts of support that are provided to patients. As, they serve as a caregiver as well as friend, who is has a vital role in helping to alleviate suffering and allowing those they are working with to overcome the difficulties they are facing. At the heart of helping the nurse to be more effective, is the Caring and Healing Model for Nursing. This is designed to provide practical applications that will help health care practitioners in achieving these objectives. To fully understand how this is can be utilized requires: providing an explanation of the new professional model of caring-healing practices, conducting an examination of the philosophy itself, the steps that are used to enhance learning / original scholarship mentoring and what steps can disseminate the Caring Science mode of clinical / educational…

cademic Plan and Stipend
Before I begin with the purpose of my letter, I would first like to thank you and your entire organization for their time and generosity. Your organization has been instrumental in providing my son with a quality education that will set the foundation for his future. s we are all aware, the rising cost of education places a large financial burden on families around the world. The scholarship you have awarded my son, has in large part, alleviated this concern for me as a father. The benefits of your generosity are as difficult to enumerate as they are to put in words. Thank you so much.
However, some complications have arisen in regards to my son's scholarship that I believe, warrant your attention. First, my son's monthly stipend was withheld due to his inability to submit his graduation plan. My son however explained over the phone…
As a father, I am asking MSAD to stop withholding his monthly stipend as we have discussed the issue of the graduation plan over the phone with one of your representatives. MSAD has received a letter of acceptance from the business school. My son will also be getting his academic plan for his advisor indicating his graduation date of spring 2014.
In addition, I ask if the organization could support my son emotionally as he continues that difficult period in his life as a student and adult. Your support as an institution will be instrumental in allowing my son to graduate on time.
I again, don't want to make this letter accusatory in anyway whatsoever. I admire and thank MSAD for their help in this difficult period for my son. I just would like to help strength the relationship my son has with the organization in a manner that is beneficial for both parties involved. Thank you so much for your help.
Several of my childhood friends succumbed to the temptations of gang life, as we grew up in a low-income, predominantly Hispanic neighborhood in Hawaiian Gardens, California. I've witnessed many people my age and younger act out of desperation and hopelessness and a false sense of self-esteem. Once, I spoke to one of my closest childhood friends about his spending inordinate amounts of time with some known gang members. Confronting him made him noticeably uncomfortable. "Leave me alone," he said. "Maybe if you just got to know them better..." The lure of that life was sometimes hard to resist, as it served as a major social and political outlet for many people my age in the neighborhood. I struggled often with designing my own life path amid the hardships I witnessed around me.
Luckily, my parents were good role models. Both teachers, they taught me the value of a…
That influence would be on those people who observe my actions, my hard work, my dedication and in doing so, be influenced to accomplish much in their lives as well.
This direct and indirect influence exerted by one scholarship would, by far, have more influence than if given to another individual who may not have as high aspirations as I have.
One of the reasons why I would make a strong candidate for the College of Design Alumni Scholarship is based on the way I would spend the money the committee would award me. Being afforded a financial advantage such as the one the College of Design awards would allow me the peace of mind necessary to learn, study and garner information to complete the design program in a timely manner. Finishing the program would allow me the luxury of then pursuing a career that would most efficiently use the…
Half the Sky from a Feminist Perspective
In the last sixty years, women in estern countries and to a lesser extent the rest of the world have become outspoken about women's rights, demanding equal rights in political, economic, cultural, social, and domestic spheres. Their struggles and activism, generally known as feminist movements, helped to elevate the status of women in many countries. Yet, as Nicholas D. Kristoff and Sheryl udunn document in their book Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for omen orldwide, the struggle for gender equality is far from over. Kristoff and udunn demonstrate the deeply troubling picture of gender relations around the world where women and girls are systematically subjected to brutality, mistreatment, and discrimination. In their attempt to expose gender inequality in the world, Kristoff and udunn are largely successful, but their analysis is not well-grounded in feminist scholarship, which weakens their argumentation.

However it was not until I moved to California seven years ago that I realized that lack of cultural diversity in the field of psychology was actually hurting the victims from other ethnic backgrounds. For the past three years, I have been working with a minority group that helped me better understand the need for cultural diversity in this field. I have come to realize that there are strong traditional and cultural barriers that prevent patients of African-American background to open up and voice their feelings. They usually express their emotions believing that family issues and problems must remain within the family alone. A person from a different ethnic background may not be able to fully comprehend these psychological and cultural barriers and hence the need arises to have more…
Which Hamilton Relay communication services will you find most beneficial to you in your college career (and how could this service be changed to meet your future needs)?
The transition from high school into college requires adaptation for all students. But for one such as myself, who is hearing impaired or has difficulty speaking in my secondary education, this transition is uniquely challenging. I'm excited to take this next step in my education but I know that in order to achieve my maximum potential. This is why I am applying for the Hamilton Relay Scholarship and why I'm so grateful for the full line of specialized communication services offered by Hamilton Relay. I can say with great certainty that many of these services will be directly beneficial to me as I further my educational career.
Specifically, the Hamilton Web Relay service is one that I anticipate using on a…
performance of traditional Japanese dance, my academic focus has shifted towards a more multidisciplinary point-of-view. Subtle nuances of movement, mimicking nature in its most elemental form, arose in me a newfound appreciation for the diverse means by which individuals express themselves in spite of the limitations of culture, norms, and language. Whereas I had previously been inspired to learn about medieval Japanese history, now I see that Japanese culture cannot be divided into segments. Each part serves an integral role in the whole. Therefore, I seek to understand the role of Japan in the global economy from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Undocumented tudents Equity to in-tate Tuition:
Reducing The Barriers
There exist policy ambiguities and variations at federal, state, and institutional levels related to undocumented student access to and success in higher education and this has created problems for these students. This study investigated specific policies and procedures to provide the resources and capital to assist undocumented students as well as reviewed key elements of showing the correlation of these difficulties with ethnic identity in access and equity to higher education that would help eliminate student's frustration. The study also illustrated that there is no accountability system surrounding the success of undocumented student's postsecondary education divide significant structure. Three research questions guided the study; a) Without the fundamental requirements met how will undocumented students achieve their goal to attain a degree, and seek a rewarding career? b) Is it unjust to extradite an illegal alien who has been living a constructive…

DNP has been a relatively new one for the nursing profession. Today, "there are many enthusiasts toward the DNP. Seen by some as a symbol of social progressivism, the endorsement of doctoral education for advanced practice nursing has many potentially positive outcomes. Among them, better parity with other practice disciplines" (Bellini 2012: 6). However, there have also been many naysayers about the degree. They "strongly argue for the retention of MS-level preparation for APNs based on economic and workforce issues… [they argue that the DNP is] detrimental to society, as the projected number of APNs needed is expected to rise in the years to come, The authors argue that this is unlikely to occur if the DNP-mandate deters potential APN students from pursuing graduate study" (Bellini 2012: 6). This reflects the idea that nursing, however much theory might inform the teaching of nursing, is ultimately always a practical discipline.
