Target.com/Education – Target Gives Millions For Education
Target is giving millions of dollars away for education according to Target.com/Education. In fact, Target plans on giving one billion dollars away by the end of fiscal year 2015. That is truly a noble endeavor and one that benefits the community. Watch the acceptance to college video on their page and, if you are like me, you will probably smile and shed a tear. It is truly a touching spot. So many kids dream of going to college and getting that acceptance letter is a memorable moment in one’s life. The reactions of all the people are incredible. The elation can be easily seen on their faces. I especially like the one where the friends or the family members who are nearby also get excited too. I remember when I got my letter that I was accepted to college, I was thrilled and excited. I remember jumping for joy and being so happy with my achievement. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the money to pay for it. As a result, reality sank in and I had to find ways to pay for college. I remember I applied for scholarships. I asked the college if they had an financial aid programs for me as well. I even asked them if I could get work study. Luckily, I received a scholarship from a service organization not affiliated with the school. Then, with a scholarship in hand, I could really celebrate the fact that I was going to college.
The dream of going to college starts long before you apply. There is a lot of hard work involved in studying and preparing for that day. But there is more to it than that. It takes the hard work of teachers, often times family members to support you, and the community at large. That is why I am so impressed with Target. Target makes that commitment to education as articulated on their Target.com/Education site. For example, they mention their dedication to learning by supporting activities and programs that help children read. Like Target, I also believe reading is important. When I was younger I struggled to read. As school progressed, I got further behind in my reading skill level. At one point, teachers thought it might be in my best interest to be held back a grade. Fortunately, our school had some reading specialists that worked with me and got me caught up to speed. I remember doing a lot of work with flashcards to learn how to pronounce words too. Eventually, I got caught up with my classmates and my reading level, although still slow, produced great comprehension. My path to becoming a life long learner was forged.
If you haven’t taken the opportunity to read about the contributions that Target has made, I think you will enjoy the articles on the Target.com education page. The grants that Target has given to education is absolutely impressive. They have helped make field trips possible. In addition, they have given away early childhood grants for reading. They even are dedicated to supporting arts and culture. We all probably remember when we went on a field trip when we were in elementary school. Usually, we remember those as fun days. I remember them as unique learning opportunities and I am glad that Target is helping make them feasible. I don’t think my school experience would have been the same without those field trip opportunities.
If you are interested in Target grants, there is lots of important information to be found on this topic on the www.Target.com/Education page. You can learn a little bit more about the background on the grants and more about the guidelines. They even have listed recipients of grants too for you to peruse. After reading that, the magnitude of the giving was obvious to me. The Target Education grants are numerous. More importantly, I feel they are doing a world of good. Hopefully, if you are in high school you will apply for college and get accepted. Who knows, maybe we will see you celebrate your reaction to getting accepted. If you do get accepted, follow my advice and explore how to pay for college. In fact, I would encourage you to start applying for as many college scholarships as you can when you start applying for college. Furthermore, I would also encourage you to begin the process of applying for college financial aid at that time as well. I want you to truly be able to rejoice about going to college when you get that acceptance letter and not to worry about how you are going to pay for it like I had to. In fact, maybe you will get notices that you have won scholarships before you get your actual acceptance to the university of your choosing.
