So I didn't know where to ask this question...
I won the American Legion Award when I was in 8th grade.
I'm now a sophomore...
My question is will this award help me in my college apps?

Do you guys know if this is a prestigious award?

Thank you=)

    I am sorry I do not know how to post my topic. I am entering for the winter term 2011 at UCR.

    I would like to get your ideas about finance at UCR. I was offered an award chart. That is not full fellowship. For the second year, i was offer TA but partially pay for non-resident tuition fee. Therefore, remaining money for living expense is very low.

    Could you please let me know that If there is any opportunities for me to get other financial support excluding from support listed in the award chart I received.

    Thank you,
