It is crucial for a student to stand out amongst the crowd when applying to college, specifically top-notch colleges. Colleges and universities are looking for students that are completing extracurricular activities that a normal teenager would not likely complete. This displays to them that you are an ambitious teenager who is not afraid to take initiative and be different from the rest of the applicants. Members in this organization are recommended to participate in one of the unique projects within Mission: Scholarship because the benefits are plentiful. Students will be able to display their talents and abilities, boost their resume, and broaden their horizons in different career fields.
