Pay for Play in the College Sports - In today’s college sports it is no longer just a game. It is also a business. Tons of NCAA Division 1 Universities make a lot of their income off of their sports programs. Schools make money off of their ticket sales, television contracts, sport teams merchandise, and tons more. Yes these athletes are on a scholarship and yes free education is a great thing but there is more work that they put in and don’t get anything out of it. A full ride scholarship athlete has benefits of a non-athlete but non-athletes have benefits full ride scholarship athletes have....   [tags: scholarship, income, money, athletes] 2193 words

Should College Athletes Be Paid? - There is currently a major issue in today’s college athletics. Universities and the NCAA make billions of dollars while some student-athletes go hungry. There is a huge debate over whether or not student-athletes should be paid as employees of their respective colleges. Personally, I don’t believe players should receive full-time salaries, but Universities and the NCAA should be required to increase the value of the scholarships that they award to student-athletes. By requiring that colleges provide athletes with an additional $2,000 per semester as part of their scholarship you can greatly increase the well-being (welfare) of the students....   [tags: sports, ncaa, salary, scholarship]

How I Pursued My PhD as a Middle Eastern Woman - From the beginning entering the gradate school was one of my main aims but the issue of how to fund my Ph.D. graduate school education was a major obstacle. In the Middle East there is an obvious lack of human rights and more particularly for women. Thus, it is quite hard to apply for a scholarship for graduate school and men have a complete advantage in any scholarship if existed. In 2012 I joined UWM as a second Bachelor degree in Biological science. I was fortunate to be a student in Dr. Timothy J....   [tags: scholarship, student, biology] 531 words

Overseas High-Quality Education vs. U.S. High Cost Education - Having been studying in the United States for a while, I have seen some universities offer online programs that allow students to access learning materials at their own convenience. I find this quite interesting, since there are no such programs in my country. What concerns me is the fact that one needs to go aboard in order to gain high quality education. From my own experience, gaining education in the United States can be very costly.

We walked down the aisle and moved to Florida in less than a year. Miami captivated my husband’s attention immediately. I was, however, homesick before the plane left.

Theodor Mommsen: Prince of Scholars - Theodor Mommsen’s (1817-1903) influence on generations of scholars is both uncanny and profound. During the course of his life, Mommsen published over 1,500 works, many of which are considered the bedrock of entire fields of study. Although much of Mommsen’s work has been superseded by subsequent scholars, Mommsen laid the foundation for all modern scholarship in Roman history and Roman law. Among the great scholars of the 19th century, Mommsen is perhaps the most influential of them all. Mommsen was born in Schleswig, the son of a Lutheran pastor....   [tags: modern scholarship, roma]

Most Likely to Succeed - ... I’ve also heard this expression during a group interview for a job at a retail store. The manager told us it is hard to decide who to hire, because someone might seem like the perfect employee, but the retail business just isn’t for some people. This is also the case with many college admissions offices. The only knowledge a college has about an incoming student is the student’s GPA, ACT score, and class rank. I don’t believe this is fair.

University or College Athletes - ... As a result of player performance, most coaches are paid immense bonuses based on team record and ranking. For example, “the football coach at the University of Texas, Mack Brown, can earn up to $6 million a year with bonuses” (Nocera). That is unfair to the student-athletes being exploited since it’s their labor that is generating the revenue. This shows how players are used as money makers, and they get no part of that money. “A proposal that can be issued by the NCAA is for the coaches to share their bonuses with the players....   [tags: injury, University of Oklahoma, scholarship] 3077 words

Money In College Athletics - ... “Payment to student-athletes would require the NCAA to loose its current non profit status and Title IX bylaws would require payments to all athletes making total payments unachievable” (Schneider 2). The college athletes that believe they should get paid could be because there is such a small amount that actually get drafted to the pros. “Assuming the best players receive scholarships, on average only 8 percent of these will be drafted” (Brown 11). Some universities have larger budgets and would be able to pay athletes better, this would make it more difficult for the smaller schools to compete for talented players....   [tags: value of athletic scholarship] 1662 words

COLSA Scholarship Application Essay - Five years ago, I never would have thought that I would have the passion for science that I do today. I was never excited about biology in high school, and I was never an outstanding or ambitious student. I never thought I had leadership qualities or outstanding creativity.

I came to identify more as an artist, perhaps because I found art more accessible and natural to me than identifying things through a microscope. My eventual goal was to become an art teacher, not to teach the finer points of artistic technique or instill an educated appreciation of history's famous art, but to help others discover their own innate...   [tags: Personal Ambition] 1956 words
