Ata Local 38 Scholarship Essay

Scholarships and bursaries may be awarded on the basis of more than one factor. The usual criteria are academic achievement, citizenship qualities and financial need. Some awards are based on only one of these factors, some on two, others on all three. The following description will be helpful in determining your eligibility:
  • Academic Achievement - usually refers to your overall final average or in some instances, your final mark in specific subjects.
  • Citizenship Qualities - usually takes into consideration your extra-curricular activities, both in school and in the community, ie clubs, sports, organizations, and your overall contribution to the school (helpfulness, cooperation, volunteerism, etc.)
  • Financial Need - takes into consideration your family’s ability to contribute financially to further education (ie family income of $30,000 or less, number of children, other financial commitments).

Сьюзан стало абсолютно очевидно, что план Танкадо ужасным образом рухнул. Он не собирался умирать. Он рассчитывал, сидя в испанском баре, услышать по Си-эн-эн пресс-конференцию об американском сверхсекретном компьютере, способном взломать любые шифры. После этого он позвонил бы Стратмору, считал пароль с кольца на своем пальце и в последнюю минуту спас главный банк данных АНБ.

Вдоволь посмеявшись, он исчез бы насовсем, превратившись в легенду Фонда электронных границ.
