Encore Scholarship

Encore Protection is proud to present our Victims of Drunk Driving Scholarship, worth $1,000. Intoxicated driving is one of the biggest — and deadliest — problems on America’s roadways. On average, drunk driving claims 28 lives a day; that’s more than one per hour. Annually, about a third of all motor vehicle deaths can be attributed to alcohol use. Police arrest about 1.1 million drivers annually who are driving impaired, but that’s only 1 percent of the 121 million adults who report driving under some level of intoxication. With so many drunk drivers on the road, there’s a good chance you or someone you know has been involved in an alcohol-related accident. In fact, it’s estimated that two-thirds of all drivers will be involved in an alcohol-related wreck in their lifetime. Here at Encore Protection, we know how devastating a drunk driving accident can be. Victims may find themselves permanently injured, affecting their performance at school or work. Families who are affected may find it difficult to pay for their student’s education on top of medical, rehabilitation and other bills. We want to help those affected by a drunk driving accident lead a successful life by easing at least some of the financial burden of college.

Health Professions Scholarship Program
How would you like to have your medical school paid for AND get paid while you’re in school?

If you want to become a physician, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist, clinical or counseling psychologist, Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and qualify, you could earn a full-tuition scholarship for the medical school of your choice plus a monthly stipend of more than $2,000!

According to the American Medical Association, the average cost of four years of medical school has risen to more than $250,000. Add that to your living expenses, start-up costs of opening your practice plus the rising costs of malpractice insurance and you can see why the U.S. Army Health Professions Scholarship Program is a wise choice.

Scholarships for Hispanic Students

Scholarships and grants are an ideal way to help pay for tuition. They are essentially gifted funds based on financial need, cultural background, educational and civic achievements, athletic ability, hobbies, intended major, etc. Funds received do not have to be repaid, although some sources require students to give back to a community or organization as a condition of the scholarship or grant.

There are many opportunities for Hispanic students, but the trick is knowing where to look for the right scholarship or grant. Though high school guidance counselors and college financial aid offices are a good place to start, it helps for students to do research outside as well:

LA Tutors 123

At LA Tutors, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram; still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver. One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways. It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life. We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.
