$500 Black Cat Cash Scholarship Winner

Jonathan Chang

University Of Nevada Reno

"My aspiration to become a jazz pianist and a music educator had always seemed unattainable simply because of financial issues. With only my mother to provide for a family of six, attending a renowned school of music to further expand my knowledge in music, or to any college for that matter as the cost of going to college continually rises, became a fantasy that would never come true. I knew that in order to pursue my goals, I still have to attend college at the least expense, so that I may ease the burden on my mom; to do that, I had to find scholarships - a lot of them. When I found, I was skeptical at first because other scholarship websites did not use point systems to select their winners. Nonetheless, my desperation led me to sitting at the computer carefully calculating how many points I had and at what fraction should I dedicate to each scholarships. Quite honestly, I didn't think it would work! Yet here I am as the winner of this scholarship, which became one of the first signs that there are people out there ready to give money to help YOU receive a better education. I thank you, ScholarshipPoints, for selecting me as a winner! May everyone receive the support that they deserve for all their hard work and dedication, and may everyone succeed in college and their lives as well! Take care!"

"First of all I would like to say thank you all so much for this opportunity! I have been struggling since 2009 when I graduated from Charlottesville High School. Before I graduated I attended trade school for Culinary Arts....I LOVED IT!! So much I wanted to make a career out of it. So when I graduated my grandmother was real ill and thats who I was living with at the time so when college time rolled around the school closest to me didn't offer culinary classes..and wouldn't for the next 4 years. Now I'm 21 years old, working at a local chocolate shop and Piedmont Virginia Community College finally added a Culinary Arts Associates program and I couldn't be happier. Only problem is paying for school....being that the FAFSA has so many redundant questions about your parents income, I didn't receive much and I don't plan on my parents helping me pay for college or taking out some ridiculous amounts of loans. Here I am thanking ScholarshipPoints loudly, thanks for giving me the chance to extend my career and become somebody who inspires others to create food that speaks."

Dai Garner

Southern Methodist University

"My name is Dai Garner and I am currently attending Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas but Fall 2013 I will be transferring to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas to obtain my bachelor's degree in accounting. Since I've began college, which we all know is not cheap at all but necessary, I have been paying out of pocket for my classes also with the help of student loans. I've always wanted to attend an university ever since I graduated from high school. I've applied, enrolled, packed for school and even attended orientation but the financial aspect has always been a struggle for me that has stopped me from attending. So to reach my goal I've been working two jobs at Wells Fargo bank and Carls Jr.'s to pay my way through school which is becoming stressful and tiring. I actually googled "Scholarships" and that is how I found out about ScholarshipPoints and to be honest I NEVER expected to win because I figured so many people probably have so many more points than I do so they have a better chance, which was not the case. I had just created my profile and began earning points a week before I was selected for the scholarship. The morning I received the email I had to reread it because I just knew it wasn't true, but then no more than a hour later a received a call from a ScholarshipPoints representative telling me to claim my scholarship. I was beyond ecstatic, words can't even explain my level of joy. I want to genuinely thank you ScholarshipPoints for awarding me with a scholarship. I am genuinely grateful. I plan on applying for many more scholarships and hopefully I can be done with student loans because they are starting to add up!”"

Mykaela Cross

Baker University Baldwin City

"I applied for scholarships all over the internet for one simple goal. I wanted to knock off as much of my future debt as I could. Growing up in a struggling family, I learned that staying on top of finances can be the most important element of my future. This scholarship for $1000 will be used in order to allow myself to pursue my dreams with little to no monetary cost. With the money I receive from participating in Newspaper, Choir, Theater, Bowling, and scholarships like this one, I will be able to get a first class education at Baker University and study to major in Music Education and Special Education and minor in Theater Performance and Creative Writing. I will use these degrees in order to teach and write my books from home. I plan to use this money in order to make my mark on the world by educating the children of the future, and keeping the timeless tradition of literature alive."

Annette Joseph

California State University At Long Beach

"All throughout high school I was involved in one extracurricular activity after another. From Marching Band and Chess Club, to Funk Band and ComedySportz, I have been a very busy high school-er. Unfortunately this left me very little time to plan or save for college. My last two years of high school I have realized that College is around the corner and I haven't made any sort of monetary plan, and I have been worrying myself to death about how I was going to pay for college, and since I don't want to take out very many loans, I was stumped. When I heard I won this scholarship, some of my stress melted away. This scholarship will help me pay for books and housing and I couldn't be more thankful, Thank you, ScholarshipPoints"

Cathryn Wood

Lawrence University

"Throughout high school, I have immersed myself in diverse extracurriculars and rigorous academics, including tennis, marching band, musicals, and several AP classes. As my senior year comes to a close, I would ideally like all my hard work to pay off by being able to go to a college of my choice, based on the best program and what fits me personally. Since I was very young, I've dreamt of becoming a marine biologist. Living in the midwest, far from the best schools with that major, it would be very costly if I were to attend one. Unfortunately I’ve come to realization that my decision relies greatly on financial circumstances. With this scholarship though, my dream school may actually be attainable now, and I am so very grateful for it. Thank you so much ScholarshipPoints, for helping me achieve that dream. It will help remarkably."
