Opening Paragraph:
I will make my contribution to society by finding cures for illnesses namely: cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. I am planning to study at BYU for four years or until I earn my Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. Once I have earned my degree, I plan on attending graduate school from hopefully Standford, MIT, or Saint James Medical School. All of this while working for multiple research groups in hope of finding the cures I stated earlier. I know that this is a very difficult goal to achieve however; I have never stopped thinking about it.

Closing Paragraph:
People say that it's not work if you love what you're doing every day; research is something I love to do. I can't go a day without helping someone and this is my chance to help someone every day. I know the possibilities for finding a cure for cancer are slim, but as long as there is a chance, that is enough for me to say, "Let's get started."

Essay Prompt: How do you anticipate making a contribution to society?
Opening Paragraph:
A simple smile has power to change someone's life, I know that smiles have changed mine.

Smiles can connect people who have never met before, give encouragement to others, or friendship one who may feel lonely. The impact smiles have is great and because of that, it is all the more reason to have a beautiful smile. Ashman Dental gives the power of a beautiful smile to every patient, including me.

Closing Paragraph:
The Ashman Scholarship will help me achieve my goals and facilitate my education at Utah State University. College Tuition is very expensive, and the Ashman Scholarship would be a great blessing in my life. Ashman Dental has been a major factor in making my smile shine, and being the recipient of their scholarship would be a great honor, it would surely make me smile!
