[05:48.24]Xiaohong:Thank you.We'll always remember these inspiring people and follow in their footsteps. [05:55.40]Reporter:Thank you very much for your time and once again,my congratulations! [06:01.35]11.Listen,read and learn. [06:06.92]What is a scholarship? [06:10.29]Scholarships are financial aids [06:14.44]to help academically able people further their education. [06:20.08]Every year,many universities and colleges in many parts of the world [06:26.64]follow a long tradition of ensuring that students get access to these scholarships. [06:33.48]This allows more students to gain the full benefits of good education. [06:39.65]A scholarship is a financial award for students [06:44.51]who want to attend private secondary schools [06:48.95]or undergraduates who want to study at private and public colleges. [06:55.50]This financial award or scholarship is given in recognition of [07:01.43]past or potential academic achievements. [07:06.58]In most instances,students can only qualify for scholarships [07:12.74]if they can show that they are in financial need,as well. [07:18.10]A scholarship usually does not require repayment. [07:23.56]Although most undergraduate scholarships are awarded to full-time students [07:29.80]at 4-year colleges or universities, [07:34.35]a considerable number of the scholarships are for students who attend business, [07:40.59]technical,library,science,art,nursing and vocational schools and 2-year colleges. [07:50.26]Every year there are millions of scholarship programs out there. [07:55.69]The key is knowing how to work your way through the ones that you qualify for [08:02.14]and the ones you do not. [08:05.62]There are many scholarship opportunities available. [08:10.16]You should research as many funding sources as you can. [08:15.75]Many scholarships have similar CRIteria for their awards. [08:21.08]By maintaining a high Grade Point Average, [08:25.52]staying as active as possible in your community and extracurricular activities, [08:32.37]evaluating and cataloguing your personal and professional strengths, [08:38.24]and setting future goals for your education and career, [08:43.81]you will have more chances to get a scholarship. [08:48.98]Once you are certain that you meet the qualifications to apply, [08:54.54]you should be careful with the application process by clearly expressing [09:01.10]and explaining all your qualifying factors. [09:06.25]It is always a good idea to ask for the assistance of a school advisor, [09:12.72]counsellor,or professors,when applying for a scholarship. [09:18.60]You need to start to start to build a network of professionals and educators [09:24.24]who are willing to advise you, [09:28.01]write recommendations,proofread your applications and essayds, [09:33.88]and guide you through the application process. [09:38.85]You should also know that only about 30 percent of the students [09:44.49]who apply for funding are awarded a scholarship. [09:49.48]This means it is a competitive process,so caution must be taken when applying, [09:56.61]to give yourself the best possible advantage. [10:01.34]However,failing to get a scholarship [10:05.49]doesn't mean you won't have a chance in the following year. [10:10.25]So keep on trying and do not lose heart.You may get a sc holarship someday. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20171121/513002.html
