Essay Contest College Scholarship Requirements & How to Apply

Many people do not realize that rural youth are more at risk than teens who grow up in larger cities and more populated areas. At Blaze Wifi, we want to help at-risk rural teens learn how to use Internet technology in healthy and productive ways that will help prepare them for the future and the demands of the current US job market and workforce. Writing, blogging and sharing thoughts and ideas online is one of the best ways for rural students living in remote areas of the United States to connect to the outside world, expand their knowledge base and participate in a large and active online community.

We offer this scholarship with the sincere hope that the winner will return to their hometown after graduation and help develop rural and underserved towns and cities in America.

To apply for the Blaze Wifi Rural Students Scholarship Program, write an in-depth blog post answering the following question:

How has having Internet access helped you or someone you know develop as a young person and student growing up in a rural community?

Publish an original personal essay of no fewer than 600 and no more than 1,000 words in length on any blog or website by the application deadline date (see below).

In the body of your essay, include a link back to the official Blaze Wifi website (www.blazewifi.com). Look here for more information on how to create an HTML hyperlink.

FINCAD WOMEN IN FINANCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The field of finance is changing rapidly, largely in response to regulations designed to protect market practitioners and to prevent financial crises. FINCAD has long believed that deep market knowledge, transparency and trustworthiness play a critical role in making financial markets safe for all participants.

In addition, FINCAD is keenly aware that the majority of practitioners in the capital markets industry are men, and that the trend to include more women in the industry is not as rapid as it should be.

For these reasons, FINCAD established the annual FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship Program. The goal is to encourage and support outstanding women in the field of finance, particularly relating to the use of derivatives in capital markets and/or financial risk management, and give them an opportunity to cultivate their skills and knowledge.

The FINCAD Women in Finance Scholarship Program offers an award of US$10,000 to support graduate-level studies.

The scholarship is open to women of any age and citizenship who are studying Finance in a graduate-level program. Complete application packages are due February 27, 2015.

HELPING THE HELPERS: THE CAREGIVER SCHOLARSHIP

Time doesn’t heal all wounds. For the disabled, the journey becomes one of accommodation to a new reality. Adapting to a lifestyle they never envisioned. Beside them on this journey are the teachers and healers.

 

Our firm is pleased to announce a $3,000 scholarship for those seeking education in a field related to the care of the injured and disabled. We know how valuable their skills are. Our clients tell us, and we see the results – the support and comfort these caregivers provide, long after the case is won.

Students in any accredited program of higher education which services the injured or disabled are eligible. It’s for those pursuing a career in massage therapy, physical therapy, chiropractic, audiology and other healing arts. All we ask is that applicants tell us their story – why they chose to help those with physical ailments.

 

The application details can be found here.

 

Students may already be enrolled or just starting out. Candidates will be required to document acceptance or current enrollment in a recognized program, either for a degree or certification (two-year, four-year or trade school).

While our firm can reach a full and fair settlement in negligence injury cases, it takes another type of gift to transition someone from the devastation of physical injury to regaining control of their lives. There’s a real bond formed between a caregiver and patient. The injured look to us for financial remedies, but after the case, they still face struggles. It takes real time and effort to get back a sense of purpose and to feel productive once again. Those who assist in this have our greatest admiration.

The Center for Disease Control reports that about 20% of Americans have some disability. That’s a huge number, and the support services needed to meet this demand are incredible. Difficulties with mobility and impaired vision are most common, but any physical damage has the potential to permanently alter function. For many, the daily tasks we take for granted are severely limiting, affecting employment opportunities and the ability to enjoy their lives.

Sadly, the support systems in place are sometimes deficient. We often battle on clients’ behalf to get the benefits they deserve, whether it’s from Social Security, workers’ compensation, or other party. The landscape is a rough one, filled with traps for the unwary. Where the support systems are not deficient, however, is when a caring professional steps in to aid recovery or offer long-term assistance. For this reason, we hope our scholarship promotes and sustains someone’s dream to become the unsung hero; the hero who pushes someone to take just one more step; the voice of encouragement when all seems hopeless; the teacher and the guide.

If you know someone who is pursuing a career in helping the disabled, please pass this scholarship announcement on to them. The requirements are very few. This is intentional so as not to limit applicants by geography, school, or career path. We’d very much like to hear their story.

 

The deadline for applications is July 17th, 2015

TRIUMPH OVER BREAST CANCER SCHOLARSHIP. This $1,000 scholarship was created to assist one achievement-oriented student who is struggling with or has survived breast cancer.

Like so many in the community, we at Icing On The Ring have witnessed the devastating effects of breast cancer and its ability to completely overturn a life. That is especially true when an individual is working hard to put themselves through school. Although all college students face difficult obstacles, we believe that a disease like cancer should not be allowed to derail an aspiring student’s dream. Our intention is to offset the financial burden to a student who is continuing to study despite their encounter with breast cancer.

As a jeweler specializing in engagement rings and wedding rings, Icing On The Ring has been honored to have been included in so many individuals’ happiest moments. We know that graduating college, starting a career and achieving success are important milestones just like engagement and marriage, and we want to help more people reach them.
