Hey folks. I have had absolutely NO luck winning a scholarship. I have applied to countless and wrote a few essays and did not make the cut. I have decided to quit applying to regular scholarships and will just apply to aviation scholarships. Being a small community and certain breed of people who are involved in the aviation field I am sure that the scholarship process is more personal. Any ideas where i can find some good aviation scholarships?
Did your family experience any hardship from hurricane Katrina? Weren't you still there in 05? There might be some grant program for folks who endured forced re-location.
I'm shooting in the dark here, but that might be an angle you could examine. HOWEVER, it's always far more satisfactory when it's earned by your own merits in an apples-to apples competition. This may be where some of us can help you. Is the opportunity still available to you to earn a scholarship through regular channels? If so, just PM the regulars here who do this stuff for a living and we'll do our level best to advise you along the way. Not that I'm volunteering to write your essays for you, but I'll be more than happy to proof-read and edit your submission. Can't hurt...
Best of luck David!
