The funds of the scholarship were made by an anonymous donor, for the devoted work carried out by the council. The scholarship is awarded to students whose academic career path is unconventional. Unconventional education is one that does not attend brick and mortar schools and is way I qualify for this scholarship. I began my college education a week prior to graduating high school in 1987. I attended college for three semesters, while funding was limited I had to temporary halt my education. As an investment in future college funding I joined the United States Navy, where I invested in the G.I. Bill where I could use upon my discharge from active duty service. While in the Navy I took advantage of the Navy’s tuition assistance program and completed a few college classes. Consequently, when I was discharged my husband was transferred to different geographic area, where I spent a year as a stay at home mom. Nonetheless, my veteran’s benefits provided the means to go back to college, although it was not the G.I.

However, to pursue this scholarship, I would become a member. The applicant must have an Associate’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, or a Ph. D prior to submitting the application. The research I intend to complete is Alice Paul’s role during the suffrage movement, equal rights amendment, and her contributions to the Civil Rights Act. My area of research relates to several ideas set out by the CCWH which are categorized in to the topics including women 's studies, women 's history, and Feminist Theory. The categories that my topic applies to may appear abundant. However, locating resources could be somewhat difficult to collect. Conversely, the research scholarship would ease the burden of locating sources throughout the United States by providing funds to travel to the geographic area where I could collect, inquire, and interact with sources not available through database, or archives

    After three years at my community college I graduated and applied to a few universities that had interesting programs. I have always felt somewhat disappointed in myself for not completing community college in two years, but after watching a TED talk by Scott Dinsmore, I feel better about my academic timeline. He said, “you don 't have to be the fastest marathoner in the world, just your own impossibilities, to accomplish those, and it starts with little bitty steps” (Dinsmore, 2012, 10:32).

    I was primarily interested in the arts and not much else. My mom wasn’t at home a lot because she went back to school for early childhood education. I now look back at that as important, because it shows me that as a non-traditional student, it is possible to make a life changing educational decision, even when it is hard. My first three semesters of college out of high school went disastrously, as I was severely unprepared and undermotivated. I decided to leave college, pay down the student loan debt I had acquired, and work until I figured out what I wanted to do with my life.…
