Meet Rida

I'm Rida Khan, a freshman at Shasta College. I am a very hardworking and outspoken person. I graduated high school with a 4.0 unweighted GPA and thirteen AP courses under my belt and am planning to transfer for the Fall 2024 semester (a year early) because of the college credit I received in high school.

By the end of my first year, I will be eligible for two associate degrees, one in biological science and one in physical science. I’ve taken an active role in my community in recent years and have even spoken in front of my city council and the American Association of Women in University.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, drawing, and crochet. I’ve even submitted my art to a few art shows! I’m majoring in natural science and plan to go to medical school in the future. Along with my current major, I’m considering a minor in chemistry as these fields will be instrumental in helping me on my journey to medical school and beyond. I look forward to what the future has in store for me and am excited to take the next step in my education journey!
Who is eligible?
High school seniors, as well as current, full-time students at accredited two-year or four-year American universities or colleges may apply. There is no age or specified major requirement.
Award Amount
Each semester, one recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship to help pay for their educational expenses. The scholarship will be sent directly to the school’s financial aid office.
Selection Process
Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges. The winner will be announced by September 5th for fall semester and January 5th for spring semester. The scholarship panel will also notify winners directly via email.
More Details
The awarded scholarship funds are to be used for tuition only. Once a winner is selected, they must first send a receipt for the semester’s tuition. Afterwards, a check will be written to the recipient’s enrolled school to fund academic costs. The scholarship is non-renewable and is only good for a one-semester cycle. Recipients are eligible to receive the scholarship only once during their lifetime.
