LA Tutors 123 Innovation in Education Scholarship

This scholarship is available every month and all submissions are due by 11:59 pm PST on the 20th of every month.

At LA Tutors, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram; still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways.

It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.

We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.

Must have designed an innovative project that makes a difference in the lives of others (This could be a website, series of blogs, an app, fundraising event, etc.)

Must submit an essay describing the goal of the particular project and provide supporting documentation.

The essay, idea, or creation must be the applicant’s original work.

All submissions must be uploaded no later than 11:59 pm PST on the 20th of each month. The submission window closes starting the 21st and will reopen on the 1st at 8:00 a.m.

Upload an essay, letter of recommendation, and photo of yourself before submitting the application by clicking the Upload Scholarship Documents button and uploading files all at once. All of the following documents must be included:

Current Scholarships for CS Students

In recent years, STEM-related careers have rapidly expanded, offering some of the most exciting, in-demand, and lucrative opportunities. As the field continues to evolve and grow, more and more computer science professionals will be needed. To encourage individuals to pursue this field many organizations, companies, nonprofits, and colleges have boosted their scholarship and grant offerings for those interested in CS. The following guide takes prospective and current computer science students through the scholarship process, from an overview on why scholarships are so important to the various places where individuals, including minority students, can find such opportunities. It also provides step-by-step advice on how to find quality scholarships and offers insight from a financial aid expert. Lastly, students can browse the extensive list of current CS scholarships to get an idea of what is out there before, before beginning their own scholarship and grant search.

Paying for a computer science degree can be challenging for many. CS students can read on to find scholarships and grants to make their college education a reality, and will also find information and resources specifically for minority students, including women, African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and LGBTQ students.

When it comes to scholarships, current and prospective computer science students have several options. Students can find scholarships that are open to any and all students pursuing CS and other STEM disciplines or find others that are more targeted.

Below is a breakdown of some of the existing opportunities available.

  • Undergraduate Scholarships
  • Graduate Scholarships
  • Scholarships for women in CS
  • Scholarships for African American Students
  • Scholarships for Asian Pacific Islander Students
  • Scholarships for Hispanic/Latino Students
  • Scholarships for Students with Disabilities
  • Scholarships for LGBTQ Students
  • Scholarships for Active Military and Veterans

We created this resource to help current and prospective computer science students -- and their families -- understand their many financial aid options. There are more students seeking CS degrees now than ever before, and also more scholarship and grant opportunities. This guide shows students what to look for in a scholarship, how and when to apply, and what to expect. Key elements of the guide include:

  • A comprehensive review of available scholarships, listed by eligible student groups
  • Amounts awarded and deadlines for each scholarship
  • A step-by-step guide to finding and applying for CS scholarships

In addition to the above, the guide includes an extensive Q&A with CS scholarship expert Jeff Holliday, the Associate Director of Scholarships and Compliance at Clemson University. Mr. Holliday's expertise proved an invaluable asset in crafting this guidebook.

Please visit the above link to apply for the multiple scholarships available to Computer Science Students with varied deadlines.

Scholarships & Financial Aid for Minority Students

My team at Accredited Schools Online just put out a new guide to financial aid for minority students, and I thought you might be interested in sharing the guide with your online community. If that is something that could be considered, I would love to know. Our guidebook can be found here:College Scholarships for Minority Students

This expert-driven guide includes an extensive list of scholarships and financial aid resources available specifically for minority students. The guide also includes tips for finding and securing scholarships and other financial aid.

Many different types of scholarships are available to minorities, LGBTQ, and women. These scholarships can be used as a supplement to financial aid or to assist students who are not eligible for federal or state financial aid. Minorities can receive more than one scholarship, so it may be worthwhile to investigate the different organizations having scholarships available. In this section, we take a look at scholarships offered through these groups, including charitable organizations, corporations, institutions, advocacy groups, government and professional associations. We can’t cover them all, however, so look to our scholarship list for more ideas.

AYURVEDIC PRODUCTS SCHOLARSHIP BY SHANKARA.COM

People complain about their skin every day. The complaints range from acne to visible scarring to hypersensitivity. Some complain about their pigmentation and others seem to notice that their skin is experiencing some premature ageing. These problems can all be addressed or completely eradicated and controlled by practicing a proper skin care regime. Regardless of your skin’s condition Ayurvedic products are designed to work towards eradicating them.

Good skin care requires cleansing and moisturizing. Cleansing is essential to remove dirt and dead skin cells and it also helps to prevent pimples or acne. However, cleansing can dry out the skin because it removes the oil on the skin which retains moisture. As a result moisturizers are needed to restore moisture in the skin and protect the skin. Special liquid cleansers are recommended over using the traditional bar soap. Liquid cleansers can be made with moisturizer to combat the drying agents in them. The type of cleanser chosen depends on the skin type of the person using it.

Our company - Shankara has a range of products that can make your skin as radiant, smooth and healthy as you have always desired. Other than that, we are offering a great scholarship opportunity to eager and needy university students in the United States of America.

    Ray Snader Scholarship

    My father, Ray Snader, was a lifelong teacher, mentor, and wonderful father. He always sought ways for young children to better themselves. He was thrilled that I became an attorney and had elected to practice criminal defense. In his honor, I have established a scholarship that will promote an emphasis in obtaining a college education.

    For those reasons, the Law Office of Howard A. Snader is offering a $2,000 scholarship for college-bound kids who live in a single parent home as a result of one parent currently being held in custody, or, because one of a parent's former incarceration, the family is unable to assist in providing financial support for their college education.

    I want my lawfirm to support the dreams of any young person that wants to obtain a college education and is otherwise financially unable to do so. I want to provide that one chance for that one person who otherwise would not be able to attend college.

    I am providing this opportunity to a young person who wishes to obtain a college education, but as a result of a member of their family being incarcerated as a result of a felony conviction they have a financial hardship in obtaining the necessary funds for their college education.

    Although I am an attorney and practice criminal law, this scholarship is not limited to one seeking a career in law or justice studies. Rather, as my father would have hoped, this scholarship is intended to help any college bound student who has had to deal with or overcome the obstacle of a parent being held in custody.

    TO APPLY:

    • Write a 500+ word essay sharing your story;
    • Where you wish to attend college;
    • The career path you wish to pursue; and
    • If awarded, how the scholarship could be of benefit.
    • The essay must be received by email by no later than June 30, 2016.
    • Provide your first and last name, email address, home, address, and phone number listed at the beginning of the essay (or in the letterhead)
    • Provide a copy of your transcript or any form of attendance verification at an accredited college or university;
    • Submit validating paperwork/verification that the parent named is your parent and was imprisoned. Copies of records are sufficient.
    • Any material provided will be held in strictest confidence and will be shredded after the scholarship is awarded

    TO BE ELIGIBLE, AN APPLICANT MUST: :

    • Graduating high school no later than May/June, 2016 or actively enrolled in an accredited college or university in the United States
    • Have a parent currently in prison for a felony offense, OR
    • As a result of the parent's prior incarceration, the family is unable to provide sufficient financial assistance for tuition, book, and other related college expenses

    Email your application to scholarship@snaderlawgroup.com Mr. Snader will select the top essay and award the scholarship by July 31, 2016.

    Hanlon Law Dyslexia Scholarship

    Despite what many may say, dyslexia is a cognitive disorder not a lack of intelligence.  It is believed that at least 3-7% of people are effected with it, but as much as 20% of the population may have some degree of dyslexia. Will Hanlon at Hanlon Law has seen first hand the obstacles and struggles people face with this learning disorder.  He says that “after watching my son overcome dyslexia I can say that I understand the challenges the disorder creates.  People with dyslexia are forced to approach learning in a different way but the obstacles they face teach them that success can be achieved through an open mind, perseverance, and hard work.” After Will’s son was diagnosed with dyslexia in 2012, he has been motivated to create an opportunity for young people with dyslexia. Therefore, Hanlon Law is offering a $2,000 scholarship for prospective and current college students with dyslexia. Due to his personal experience, Will’s goal for this dyslexia scholarship is to motivate students with dyslexia and give them the opportunity to pursue their academic goals.

      Scholarship For Students With An Autistic Sibling

      A child's autism diagnosis affects every member of the family in different ways. For a child with autism, the life we define as "normal" can be especially challenging. For parents, the uncovered medical expenses, the time spent improving their child's life, and the litany of other necessities for their child's special needs is often uncontrollable.

      However, we sometimes forget to think about how their siblings have to adjust. Parents don't always have the time they wish they did, let alone the financial ability to pay for extracurricular activities or even college for the other siblings. Nonetheless, these siblings will put their family first and often sacrifice certain aspects in life that others take for granted.

      Michigan Injury Lawyers Bi-Yearly College Scholarship

      Helping students meet their financial needs

      The Michigan personal injury law firm Michigan Injury Lawyers is happy to announce that it will be awarding a $500 bi-yearly scholarship to a student who is planning to attend a college or university during the 2016-2017 academic year. As an attorney who attended Michigan State University for both his undergraduate studies and for law school, founding partner Thomas L. Stroble understands the value of higher education. He also understands that the ever-rising costs of a quality college or university education make it more and more difficult for many families and students to pursue their dreams of obtaining a degree. As a result, his law firm has decided to offer its first-ever scholarship essay competition to help students pay for the costs associated with obtaining an education.

      Scholarship eligibility and the essay competition

      In order to participate in the competition, an applicant must either be currently enrolled at an accredited college or university or be planning to enroll for the fall 2016 semester. In order to apply, applicants must write a 500-word essay on the following topic:

      The CDC indicates that approximately 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs in the United States every year. Michigan law holds dog bite owners strictly liable for injuries that result after a dog bite, meaning that victims do not have to show that the owner of the dog was negligent in any way or was aware that dog was the type that may bite. This is unlike the law in many other United States jurisdictions, which follow a "one bite rule;" under this rule, dog owners are not liable for injuries that occur the first time a dog bites a person. Which rule to do you think makes more sense, and why?

      Essays will be judged on the quality of the writing and the potential the applicant demonstrates for success in a field of study related to law. Our attorneys will choose a winner and notify the applicant via email. In order to apply, applicant should send their essays as an attachment tostroblescholarship@gmail.com by April 15, 2016.

For this reason, we are pleased to offer a $1,000 scholarship to the winners of our Biannual College Scholarship Essay Contest. Potential applicants can find information regarding the application procedure and this round's essay topic below.

      Who is eligible to apply?

      Individuals who are planning on attending college or graduate school at an accredited United States college or university during the fall semester of 2016 are eligible to participate in the college scholarship essay contest.

      April Cockerham DREAM Act Scholarship

      The DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) was first introduced in 2001 to benefit foreign aliens and their children seeking new lives and new opportunities in the United States. Although the act has not been passed by Congress, and despite resistance from many legislative and judicial bodies, executive action from President Obama enacting key portions of the DREAM Act represents progress for immigrants everywhere.

      There is still much to be done, however, before immigrants can enjoy the full benefits of a clear path to U.S. citizenship, and many individuals will strive tirelessly in social, political, and legal arenas in order to achieve the necessary reforms. It takes a special kind of person to advocate for justice - a person who is willing to champion equal rights at the expense of certain privileges and exclusive beliefs held by many individuals and groups in our country. Now, more than ever, the individuals who desire to make a measurable difference in the area of immigration reform must be well educated, highly motivated, and have a hands-on understanding of the issues and policies in the U.S. and around the world.

      The April Cockerham DREAM Act scholarship is designed to support individuals who are interested in making a difference in the lives of immigrants and other non-native individuals living in the United States. By furthering the educational goals of these unique members of our nation, Ms. Cockerham looks to invest in a richer, more inclusive future for our country and those who seek to join it.

      April Cockerham is proud to offer this $500 scholarship to students pursuing any level of post-secondary education who submit materials in accordance with the following guidelines.

      Eligibility

      • The April Cockerham DREAM Act Scholarship is open to any student enrolled in a community college, private or public undergraduate college or university, graduate program, business school, or law school in the United States.
      • All candidates who apply for this scholarship must be in good academic standing and possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

      Application Requirements

      The scholarship candidate must submit a 700-word essay or statement that considers current immigration conditions and reforms in the United States and offers at least twoconcrete ways that these conditions might be improved.

      • The scholarship candidate must submit a professional resumé listing past academic, professional, and volunteer experience.
      • The scholarship candidate must submit a current official transcript from his or her school. First-year college students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred between schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their current institution, as well as their most recent official transcript from a prior school.

      The winner of the April Cockerham DREAM Act Scholarship will be announced in June of 2016.

      I Heart My School Scholarship

      ABODO is an apartment search service started by a few guys from UW - Madison. ABODO was built by students for students. Why? We loved our school, but hated every time we had to find a new place to live. The listing services didn’t have many listings and the classified ads sucked. We decided to solve the problem by pulling together all the listings around campus, putting them all on a single map with powerful filters and displaying real-time availability. It worked for us, so now we’re on a mission to spread the love and make off-campus apartment search easy across the country!

      We started in a dorm room and now we’re a real company. It’s time for us to pay it forward. We’re offering a $500 tuition scholarship twice a year! No, you cannot win twice… but your roommate could win the next time.

      How do I win?

      We love our school and want to find out why you love yours. It could be an awesome teacher, a great neighborhood near campus, or that weekly concert on the square. You tell us! To win, describe 5 great things you love but most people don’t know about your school. Your piece should be no more than 1000 words, but you can include up to 5 related pictures (only your own pictures, please).

      Do you need money for college? How about for books? We understand these expenses can add up quickly and want to help. Online Schools Offering Laptops is providing an essay scholarship competition to eligible students in need.

      The scholarship award is a one time disbursement of $2500 to the chosen student. Why $2500?

      What Can I Use the Money For?

      There are no strings, loopholes, or quirky requirements attached to this scholarship. Every student has different needs at different times - therefore you may use the $2500 for any college related expenses that arise: books, tuition, class supplies, living expenses, food, or transportation.

We also understand that school can be a significant expense and know how hard it can be for students and their families to make ends meet.

With whom do you agree and why?
