05/01/2019 Since 2016, the Unified Caring Association Scholarship
program has awarded over one hundred scholarships to caring students. The UCA
scholarship program is designed to reward kids for caring while celebrating and
encouraging their kindheartedness. Nationwide and program specific scholarships
have been created by UCA where students are invited to write a short 500-word
essay answering a caring prompt. Some examples of scholarship essay questions
are, “How do you plan to live a life that promotes peace and Unity? How will
you create the journey to fulfill this purpose?”, “ If you were the President
of the United States, what would you do to promote Peace and Unity?” , “How can caring and kindness be implemented
more in your personal life and in your school?” , and most recently, “If you were the “Caring
Ambassador” at your school, what would you do to inspire other students to be
more caring?” The UCA scholarship program has been warmly embraced by school
guidance counselors, teachers and students alike. As the students write
beautiful essays on the topic of caring they engage their caring intelligence
and skills and are reminded of the importance of kindness.
Each essay submission has its own beauty. Our scholarship entrants touch our hearts with their caring essays. It is so hard to choose the winners! We have been known to add additional awards in recognition of their caring.
The essays are scored on a “caring rubric” rather than the traditional academic rubric most scholarship contests adhere to. This allows students who would not typically be awarded scholarships to be celebrated and awarded for their unique talent … caring and kindness.
