How's your Monday going? Apparently today is International Coffee day. I participated with my (new) normal: a half coffee, half milk and hot chocolate mix concoction. And now, I have all the energy. Weeeeeeeeeeee!
As someone who works in higher education, I find myself thinking about the cost of college a lot. I was fortunate enough to get several scholarships that helped me through (though I still have a good chunk of student loans as well.)
|I'm going to be paying off my loans forever weeeeeeeeee!!|
You can make any parameters on this scholarship you want -- it can go to someone from a certain background, of a certain race, going to a certain school, of a certain major or field of study. Whatever you want. It's yours to create.
What would your scholarship go to?
A few scholarships of my scholarships were named from the person who donated the money, and I'm always thankful to this unknown benefactor, who made the gift that made my education possible (or at least lessened the debt I went into to get that education). So I've thought about what I would want my scholarship legacy to be.
I think I might give my scholarship to the child of a small business owner or a social worker. That's what my parents do, or did when I was growing up, so I have a soft spot for people who pursue those careers and would love to help them and their children out.
What about you? Who would you want your scholarship to go to?
