Just the idea of following my dream as a pharmacist gives me a feeling of glee. To help from infants to adults to even the elderly while actively creating bonds at every stage of life. That is why I beg your pardon to consider me as an applicant

I loved participating at the Ronald McDonald House through my years in high schools so I figured why not apply for a scholarship that I'm familiar with! Also, every penny counts!

Every penny counts! so with that being said I'm being proactive and applying for every scholarship no matter the amount because everything adds up. I'm going to college to pursue the career of a sports physical therapist

I am applying for this scholarship to help me pay for my college expenses. I would like to pursue a career in the medical field as a doctor. I would like to be a Heart Surgeon.

My hand was mangled in an escalator accident when I was 7 and I was in the hospital a week after major plastic surgery. My hand healed thanks to top notch medical staff and I want to be able to help others. This money would help me do that. :)

Tristan L  on 1/18/2016 2:00:53 PM

I would be the first on my father's side to graduate college, and I plan on studying and directing film. This scholarship could help immensely, and I hope that you pick me to receive it!

Lea H  on 1/7/2016 1:08:11 PM

Just the thought of receiving such an opportunity gives me chills. This scholarship would assist me with becoming a vital part of society by allowing me to help others. From the top of my heart I thank you for the opportunity.

This scholarship would help me pay for my college tuition to pursue my dreams of being a computer science major. It would help me and my family in a time of need to help pay for my college costs. I have to pay for my college tuition if I want to go and this scholarship would benefit me heavenly!

This scholarship could help pay for my college tuition. I would be the first of my family to attend college and make something of myself. My parents came to this country for a better life and I will show them their voyage was worth it. Education is the key to success, it is true. I need that chance to open up doors for myself.

Stella R  on 12/31/2015 7:16:32 PM

Winning this scholarship would mean so much to my family and myself. It would take so much weight off our shoulders and help me further my education and receive better potential. My whole life I've grown up in a small family. Just my mom and I. So when senior year arrived we got financial debt when applying to colleges and sending out scores. Again, winning this would mean you helped us in so many ways!

I spent the majority of the summer of my freshmen year of high school in the pediatric ward at UCLA Mattel's Children's Hospital. I spent over a month in treatment and recovery for acute pancreatitis. It was the most painful and emotional experience of my life; Not to mention emotional for my parents watching me go through such an awful ordeal. Everyday, the nurses (and, of course, the doctors) took such great care of me. They always showed me so much kindness, empathy and cheerfulness. Their willingness to help me is the reason why I would like to pursue a career as a pediatric nurse. It's my way of "paying it forward" to other children that need help and comfort.

Weston L  on 8/13/2015 10:26:35 PM

Can't wait t submit my application for this one. I have lived almost 3 of th last 6 years in a RMH. Since I miss an average of 80-100 of school per year due to my illness, I've had the privelage of being schooled by awesome RMH teachers since 7 th grade. The House that love built!!!!!!!

Haley C  on 7/26/2015 11:27:00 PM

This Scholaship would mean the world to me. It would take such a heavy burden off of mine and my family's shoulders considering that my mom has to pay for mine and my sisters college at the same time and is doing it while being a single parent. I am definitely going to apply for this Scholarship.

Haley R  on 12/5/2014 11:26:47 PM

This would be such a welcomed scholarship for my daughter. Our firstborn child stayed at our local RMH for three months.

Great Scholarship!

Blayne T  on 1/16/2012 7:22:20 PM

This scholarship could open a great door for college aspirations. Affordability is a struggle and this scholarship opportunity could help me to succeed educationally and financially in these next four years.

David N  on 1/6/2012 8:29:51 AM
