Scholarships for African American Students

According to a report from Demos, African American students borrow money more often to complete their bachelor’s degree at a public college than whites. Around 84% of African American graduates used Pell Grants to finance their education and only 60% of white students did the same. Additionally, nearly one in four black borrowers drops out of college, leaving them both in debt and without a degree. Obtaining financial aid can also be challenging. According to a study in The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, whites are more likely to receive merit-based scholarships, even after accounting for different enrollment rates between the demographics.

These statistics underline the importance of African American scholarships. These awards can help offset the cost of a college education, and leave students less dependent on loans. They also offer African Americans a unique opportunity to pursue financial aid without any strings attached, and without any racial biases favoring another demographic, intentionally or otherwise.

Computer Science Scholarship Resource

According to the Institute for College Access and Success, 69% of students—that’s 7 in 10 seniors—accrued an average of $28,400 in student loan debt in 2013. Federal loans generally place students on a 10-year repayment track; however, it can take up to 20 years to pay off the debt. Steep interest rates often lead to higher than expected monthly payments, and attempting to stay on the 10-year track can set students back substantially each month. As a prospective computer science student, it’s easy to assume financing your degree will require mountains of debt.

Fortunately, the field of computer science continues to rapidly expand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, software developer positions alone will grow 22% by 2022. This demand has created ample scholarship opportunities for computer science majors —and these could cover most or even all of your tuition.

Fellowships Available for Maser of Arts in Italian at Boston College

The Boston College Department of Romance Languages and Literatures invites qualified students to apply to the Master of Arts program in Italian Studies. The department is committed to the professional formation of students, who graduate with broad experience in textual and cultural analysis including a strong component of visual literacy and film, and pedagogical training and practice. To maintain the low student-faculty ratio that allows individualized attention for each student we expect an incoming class of 4-5 students. All graduate students are supported by Teaching Fellowships, which include full tuition and a stipend. Comprehensive health insurance is through the Student Blue Plan.

The program welcomes both American and Italian applicants, and seeks a balance of the two. A Bachelor’s degree with a major in Italian is preferred but not required. Our goal is to prepare our students for careers in academia or as secondary-school teachers of Italian. In the past several years, Masters candidates from Boston College have accepted prestigious Ph.D. fellowships at University of California, Berkeley, New York University, Johns Hopkins, and The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, among others. Some students choose to initiate careers in public and private secondary schools.

Boston is a cosmopolitan city, enriched by over forty universities and colleges as well as several institutions of Italian culture. This fall, Boston College MA candidates are contributing to the community with a public conference: “Language is Never Innocent: Roland Barthes at Boston College.” There will be papers by graduate students from throughout the Northeast and a keynote address by Professor Jonathan Culler. Masters candidates have also renewed the graduate literary journal, now the Romance eReview, which offers the opportunity to publish their work, and more important, to experience peer-reviewing, editing, and overseeing the preparation of a journal.

Course offerings focus on a single author, develop a theme, or are interdisciplinary. They range from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, from Romanticism and the Twentieth-First century. There are courses on Italian Cinema, art and pedagogy.

The deadline for all M.A. applicants is February 1, 2016. For more information: http://www.bc.edu/schools/cas/romlang/gradprog.html
