Around the Corner from College $1,000 Scholarship

I was in high school not too long ago, and I remember the feelings of being stressed about preparing for college all too well. That's why I created this scholarship, to help get you started with identifying what YOU need to do to get prepared for everything that the college process entails.

Before you get started with the application, here's a shortlist of everything you need to know:

December 2023 

Lucio H, High School Junior from California

I am very excited to have been selected for the Around The Corner From College Scholarship. This is the first scholarship that I've received and it gives me hope that I'm on the right track. I plan to put the money into an investment account for college, and then use it to help pay for my college tuition. In college, I plan on studying entrepreneurship in order to jumpstart my business career and help the people I care about.

Adeline R, High School Senior from Texas

To the gracious donor(s) of this scholarship, I first want to thank you for your consideration and selection of me for this scholarship. I am so grateful and hopeful for where this contribution will take me. Being an incoming freshman at a university as big and prestigious as Texas A&M brings many stressors, one of them being the financial aspect of higher education. With this scholarship, I find further motivation to make my loved ones proud as a venture through the challenges and successes of my undergraduate studies in Neuroscience. The leaps and bounds of my future are just Around the Corner, and this company's gift to me will not be forgotten through that journey.

Athena J, High School Senior from Illinois

"It feels amazing to have won this scholarship, and I feel incredibly honored. For the last two years, I have worked extremely hard at my jobs to save enough money for college tuition. Now that I've applied for scholarships, and have won this one, I know that I have some money other than my own to put towards my academics. I cannot wait to apply this scholarship to the college of my choice, which has yet to be determined, and pursue a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. This scholarship is just one step further to me shaping the future. It means a lot to me, and for that I thank Access Scholarships!"
