No School Listed
"Hello! My name is Sydney and I am from a small town in California. 2020 has been challenging for many different people and for many different reasons. Before COVID broke out, I found myself in Chile, serving a mission for my church. My time there was cut short, and ever since, I have been at home taking care of my niece while her parents work full-time jobs. I will be returning to school in Idaho this winter, and this scholarship is a game changer. I can’t express how grateful I am to have been given this opportunity. Receiving this scholarship means that I will be able to continue my studies, and hopefully one day be able to help others who are in need."

$1,000 Flourish Scholarship 2020 Winner
Southern Adventist University

September 2020 Scholarship Winners
$10,000 September 2020 Scholarship Winner
No School Listed
"Hello. My name is Angela Hilliard, and I am a junior in high school in a small, very rural town in Florida. My mother and many other members of my family are Alumni of the University of Florida, and thus I have always felt that I would need to dedicate most of my energy towards academics to secure my place in that legacy. I applied for this scholarship and a few others of its kind because I had heard anecdotes from others on how foolish it would be to let these opportunities slip by, even if there is such a small chance of receiving the scholarship. I am so incredibly grateful I listened to them. It’s difficult for me to truly grasp the fact that I am now ten thousand dollars closer to not having a mountain of debt once I complete my post-secondary schooling. In my future I hope to earn a Bachelor of Science in Cognitive and Behavior Neuroscience and pursue a doctoral degree in the subject. Being able to afford this dream means so much, as my reason for choosing that major is that I feel my own experiences with a neurodevelopmental disorder and chronic illness would be able to provide an unique perspective on the topic. Again, I am so incredibly grateful and encourage others to apply for these scholarships."

Baylor College of Medicine
"As a 4th year Neuroscience PhD student at Baylor College of Medicine, I feel beyond fortunate to have been awarded this scholarship.

I intend to continue pursuing a career in the medical field, but I know it will be very expensive. I feel beyond thankful to receive this scholarship. When I was first messaged that I won, I really could not believe it. If I'm being honest, I am still in disbelief because I assumed my chances were very low. This is a huge help from ScholarshipPoints because receiving this money will really help finance my upcoming classes at my university. I won't have to stress my financial situation as much as I thought I would. Since I have to rely on myself to pay for my college education, this scholarship means everything to me. Thank you so much to ScholarshipPoints and to the Primus Scholarship donors for rewarding me with this great opportunity. I am completely grateful to have been given such assistance."

$1,000 Campus Scholarship 2020 Winner
The University of Texas at El Paso
"Growing up as a young Mexican American woman for my entire life, the border has been my backyard. El Paso, Texas has had my heart from the start and our sister city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico has always been mi alma, or my soul. I am a Mexican American female student who is pursuing the arts I have had the privilege of growing up seeing two different worlds at once. The culture that I have been veiled in from the very moment I breathed my first breath is everywhere and it influences me every single day. A little-known fact about me is that I was initially studying and attending college to delve into biology to pursue a career as a forensic pathologist. As I continued through my early years in college, I realized just how innate art was for me and that I needed to pursue that as a life and career goal, so I did just that. Sometimes, because of where I come from and because of social standards the arts can sometimes seem frivolous and more of a hobby rather than a life pursuit it can be hard to be accepted or to find the support whether emotional or financial. Thankfully, my family has been nothing but accepting of my love of art and they support my ambitions fully, always encouraging me to create and level up in my art studies. One of the downsides is that the field of art can tend to be rather costly, especially during these uncertain times. Classes have been modified and this can be difficult for students in securing supplies that would have been otherwise provided in class. Also securing and curating a space for creation can be difficult to do at home. This is my first scholarship where I have been selected and rewarded so it is so unbelievably exciting and humbling. This scholarship is going to allow for me to purchase all the supplies necessary for my classes and ensure my success in them. As an artist it is important to have all the tools and curate my space for creation, this scholarship is going to allow for me to purchase a professional light desk as well as several easels. So again, thank you all so much for selecting me, it definitely takes away from several stresses and financial burdens especially during these uncertain times. It means everything! With thanks and gratitude -Erika"

University of California-Irvine
"Hi, my name is Jiayi and I’m an incoming freshman at the University of California of Irvine. I will be majoring in applied math and I chose this path because math has been my favorite subject since day one. I'm lucky to have received a scholarship from ScholarshipPoints because they only give out a handful of them each month. It is very expensive to pay for UC and this scholarship will help relieve some of my financial stress. I’m really grateful for this scholarship for allowing me to pursue my career in math."
