Scholarship Essay

Britney Bruno

What does the Endowment Scholarship mean to me? In a broad glance, the scholarship will give me a fulfilled, successful and accomplished future. It will give me a fulfilled, successful and accomplished future. It will help me continue my education, which I currently cannot, for financial reasons.

I was introduced to the Youth Advocate Program in September of 2003. The program assigned Lupita Rodriguez as my advocate. Lupita is intelligent, with high morals, great goal setting skills, and an accomplished person. Through our journey in the program, we grew past an advocate and client type relationship, to become friends. Being influenced by a person with such attributes was beneficial to me. She showed me the rewards of dedication, hard work and a positive attitude. Without the program I would never have met Lupita and learned skills to help myself evolve into a better, more productive member of society. The program has had a ripple effect on my life centering around my time spent with Lupita.

I am currently a student at Lonestar College; with my goal to obtain an Associate of Applied Science/Nursing degree. I would love to be a nurse for many reasons. I have found that helping people is not only my niche, but very rewarding as well. After graduation I plan to work in the neo-natal unit of a hospital. Continuing my education is not only for my future, but to instill in me the qualities I need in life. I am driven, persistent and apply that to all areas of my life.

I know I am the best candidate for the scholarship. My qualifications include passion, motivation, ambition, drive, determination and the will to achieve the goals I've outlined for my future. If I were chosen as the recipient of the endowment scholarship, I would complete my nursing program and my most sincere gratitute would go out to the program for helping me complete a chapter of my life. In conclusion, I would like to be considered for the endowment scholarship.
