Bryan Cameron Impact Scholarship Thoughts?
Answered

Hi!

I'm a junior in high school so I'm starting to gather essays and applications together for scholarships because my dream school (Case Western Reserve University) costs $70,000. My parents have too much assets so it's not possible for me to qualify for need-based scholarships. I recently found the Bryan Cameron Impact Scholarship, which is a merit-based, full-tuition scholarship for high performing students. I looked into it and I meet all the entry requirements, but when looking at past winners, they all have created non-profits of some sort or participated in ground-breaking research. I have done neither of these, but I do think that I have done more than an average high schooler (i.e creating my own podcast and acting as its producer, editor, director, etc). If I haven't done the accolades that are common amongst the recipients of this scholarship, should I even bother to apply? Thanks in advance. :)

Yes. Apply. The worst case scenario? You don't get the scholarship. You seem to have an impressive profile so shoot your shot. Who knows, you could win!

Definitely worth a try! I would also try and look for smaller, local scholarships. While $500 may seem unimportant when compared to larger scholarships, you often have a better chance of winning them and they can add up! I would suggest talking to your school counselor and see if they know of any local opportunities. Good luck!
