Hi Heaven! One recommendation I have for you is to begin your networking now. By discussing with peers, teachers, advisors, and exploring opportunities within your community, you may discover scholarship and internship opportunities that you were not aware of before. Asking questions on this platform means you are definitely going in the right direction. Another recommendation for acquiring an internship would be to begin building your work experience. Gaining any experience within the workplace, whether you are working at a restaurant or a corporate office, will help you build interpersonal skills and can also advance your technical skills. Regarding scholarships, check to see if your state offers any that qualify you based on your academic performance, volunteer work, or test scores.

Julia recommends the following next steps:

Speak with an advisor at your school and ask if they are aware of any commonly awarded scholarships
Ask your peers if they have any good resource recommendations for discovering scholarships
Perform an online search of NY state-offered scholarships for high school students
Check out part-time job openings to get hands-on work experience

Well, with the decision by the supreme court yesterday I am not sure how this will really play out. They say they are taking away preferential treatment to people of color and giving it to the people who they believe earned it. Well, this could play out even further because in may not only effect people of color but also people with disabilities. I managed to get sponsorship through college from the Division of vocational rehabilitation which every state in the country has. Due to a disability that I have had all my life. It helped me tremendously in that I did not have to work full time anymore but could concentrate more on my studies instead and my grades improved drastically. The supreme court stated that the rule is unfair to white and asian people who have higher grades. But I don't know how it will affect people with disabilities. But there are private organizations that give out money to students due to their academic achievement. You just need to find them for funding. Some will give out grants others will give out scholarships. It depends on what you want to specialize in. If it be the medical field, look up some of the foundations for different disorders. For example, in the field of epilepsy, I give out a $1,000 dollar scholarship each year to someone with epilepsy or who has a family member with epilepsy. Many people do the same thing for people with sickle cell anemia, cerebral palsy, hemophilia and the like. If it is in the field of law you are headed towards look into different fields of law and there may be some assistance. Whatever field you choose I wish you the best at finding assistance.
Thank you comment icon Also, look into JSHS.org or Regeneron, they give out scholarships of up to $12,000 in JSHS and up to $250,000 in Regeneron. You must do a science project for it that is very unique and a paper and presentation for each of these programs. I have mentored students for the JSHS program and they did well. But once you get the scholarship you do not have to go into science as a career. One student did a science project and won $10000 but went into law and is becoming a lawyer. John McCann
