Scholarships For Women

Why are about 70% scholarships for women even though men are the minority…?

in the education system?

*** lkl *****

Men are not the minority that’s why. Men have more education than women in this country. It’s probably seems like reverse discrimination to you but it’s because men seem to have in the past to be the ones to work and go to college where a lot of times in past decades, women started college, met husbands and got to be moms and didn’t finish school so they could be the wife who supported husband to get through college.

%%%%%% What does 1970 have to do with 2009?

“””” It probably seems like reverse discrimination to you.”””””

It doesn’t seem like reverse discrimination, it is reverse discrimination. What oppression did some 19 year old male cause you or any other women.

***** This is how screwed up this feminist culture is, As a woman you feel (ENTITLED) to (SPECIAL PRIVILEGE) because of whats between your legs.

Nobody owes you anything just because your a woman. The fact that you dropped out to be a wife and a mother is your choice, yet you feel all men should be placed at a disadvantage because of your choices.

For the life of me, it’s disgusting how the herds of women can’t own up to the fact that their not the victims they believe themselves to be. These are the choices you made. My son should not be placed at a disadvantage because you got knocked up to young.

How are all men responsible for your choices. Did someone enslave you? Did someone force you to get married? Where you forced to have children?

When do women become responsible for their own lives? Without the women using the GOVERNMENT to clean up their messes?

What makes you think you can call up the past as excuses for what you decide to do with your life?

Do you hear men complaining that women stayed home in the past, while they got up at 5 am to head off to a factory job? Do men complain they had to provide for their Wives and Kids?

Feminism never seems to tell the whole story, like all other special interest groups they manipulate and leave out all the facts to present one very twisted side of the story.

African American Grants

When will we finally get rid of the failing public schools for african americans?

The community gets the wrong end of the stick, the higher the african american population the lower the IQ, lower the education level, and higher unemployment much of the time. We need to have higher quality schools, more charter schools and private school grants.
They better do something, its gotten personel for me.

I live where African Americans have great school, get a good education, are very intelligent and prosper as a adult. The reason they get the wrong end of the stick in some districts is because they elect the wrong people to represent them. But every where, not just the African Americans, other races also, you have children that want to learn and some that refuse to learn. Some that like to play the victim later in life because they chose to NOT want to get a education. It was there, and they had other things they would rather be doing instead of sitting in a class room learning something. Can not blame the teachers, they are there to teach, but they can only teach the ones that show up for class and want to learn. You can lead a horse to water, but you can not make him drink it. Meaning, it is there for the taking (education) but many refuse it. As for as “lack of education being major cause of crime or being poor” is a crock. There are a lot of rich, highly educated people who are criminals. Self determination plays a big part in life, some rather sit back and blame others for their own mistakes instead of making their children keep their butts in school. My Grandparents had to walk 3 miles to school every morning, and the same back in all kinds of weather, but they went and got educated. To much “entitlement ” something for nothing is what is wrong now days.

African American Scholarships

how can any African American person get a scholarship just for being an A,B student?

i live in michigan and something had just gotten voted on about minorities. i am just wondering. i need scholships for the future. i’m a shophmore.

Most universities have special scholarships for being a minority, an african-american and so on. Try to get in touch with the African-American/Diversity group in the school. It will be quite helpful to speak to a financial aid counselor. Normally, financial aid Counselors know better about these things than anyone’s else. After all that is their job.

Education Grant

what is the best way to search for an education grant(s)?

Visit some of the schools in your area, and ask to see the books they have have listing financial assistance, or try the library. Don’t do the Internet, you will get a lot of spam mail asking you to apply to various schools, and do not put any personal information on Internet searches, you will never get rid of all the responses.

Women Grants

Where can I find free grants for Women/Minorities who want to start their own business?

I’ve already been to sites where you have to pay for the information kits, which isn’t what I’m looking for. I just need the place to find a few, and their applications.

Go to http://www.grants.gov for a list of government grants and how you can apply for them. However, there are no grants for a for profit business unless you are opening a daycare and then it is a minimal amount. If you need money, you will need to apply for a loan. No lender will talk to you unless you provide them with a valid business plan. Go to http://www.sba.gov , http://www.score.org or http://www.bplan.com for sample business plans and instructions on how to write a business plan.

Then, go to http://www.score.org/ and in the upper left hand corner, enter your zip code. On the next screen, you will get information on the nearest SCORE chapter. Call them and arrange for a free meeting with a SCORE counselor to review your business plan and discuss various loan options available to you.

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of small business nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

SCORE has 389 chapters in locations throughout the United States and its territories, with 10,500 volunteers nationwide. Both working and retired executives and business owners donate time and expertise as business counselors.
