1 - For High School Seniors: The Ronald McDonald House Charities offers multiple $100,000 scholarships for high school seniors who intend to attend a two-year, four-year, or technical school.
I recently spoke with one of the winners from last year, Carina. She said of winning the scholarship:
"The scholarship was kind of like my miracle. It allowed me not only to go to Baylor, but really allowed me to achieve my goals. Winning this scholarship helped me be able to do what I hoped to do and achieve my goals in a way I couldn't have done if finances were still a hindrance."

2 - For Community College Students: If you are intending to transfer to a four-year university after community college than you should definitely consider applying for the Jack Kent Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship. It is the scholarship that proves community college students have the abilities to get to the top universities in the country, they just don't always have the money.
I'll never forget the moment my college president announced I had won the Jack Kent Cooke scholarship. I literally got weak in the knees and wept on the community college carpet. Scholarships like these change your life forever - if you qualify, apply. The application experience itself will teach you a lot about yourself.
