Scholarship Finder 2012

The most common scholarships may be classified as:

  • Merit-based: These awards are based on a student’s academic, artistic, athletic or other abilities, and often factor in an applicant’s extracurricular activities and community service record. The most common merit-based scholarships, awarded by either private organizations or directly by a student’s intended college, recognize academic achievement or high scores on standardized tests. Most such merit-based scholarships are paid directly by the institution the student attends, rather than issued directly to the student.[2]
  • Need-based: In the United States, these awards are based on the student and family’s financial record and require applicants to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to qualify if the scholarship is a federal award. Private need-based scholarships also often require the results of a FAFSA, which calculates a student’s financial need through a formula that looks at the expected family contribution and cost of attendance at the intended college.[3]
  • Student-specific: These are scholarships where applicants must initially qualify by gender, race, religion, family and medical history, or many other student-specific factors. Minority scholarships are the most common awards in this category.[citation needed] For example, students in Canada may qualify for a number of aboriginal scholarships, whether they study at home or abroad.[citation needed] The Gates Millennium Scholars program is another minority scholarship funded by Bill and Melinda Gates for excellent African American, American Indian, Asian Pacific Islander American and Latino students who enroll in college.[citation needed]
  • Career-specific: These are scholarships a college or university awards to students who plan to pursue a specific field of study. Often, the most generous awards to students who pursue careers in high-need areas such as education or nursing. Many schools in the United States give future nurses full scholarships to enter the field, especially if the student intends to work in a high-need community.
  • College-specific: College-specific scholarships are offered by individual colleges and universities to highly qualified applicants. These scholarships, given on the basis of academic and personal achievement, usually result in either a full-ride to the college, or for a reduced rate of tuition.

Some scholarships have a “bond” requirement. Recipients may be required to work for a particular employer for a specified period of time or to work in rural or remote areas; otherwise they may be required to repay the value of the support they received from the scholarship. This is particularly the case with education and nursing scholarships for people prepared to work in rural and remote areas. The programs offered by the uniformed services of the United States (Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration commissioned corps, and Public Health Service Commissioned Corps) sometimes resemble such scholarships.

  • Athletic: Awarded to students for showing exceptional skill in a sport provided by the college.

Local scholarships

It is typical for persons to find scholarships in their home region. Information on these can be found by asking local institutions and organizations. Typically, these are less competitive as the eligible population is smaller.

  • Guidance counselors: When starting to explore scholarship opportunities, most high school students check with their guidance counselors. They can be a reliable resource for local scholarships.
  • Non-profits and charitable trusts: Most non-profit organizations have at some point of their history founded scholarships for prospective students. The Good Schools Guide, a guide to schools in the UK, states “Charitable grant-making trusts can help in cases of genuine need,” and goes on to outline several instances where this may be the case, including an “unforeseen family disaster” and a “need for special education”.
  • Community foundations: Many counties and cities and regions have a local foundation dedicated to giving money in the form of grants and scholarships to people and organizations in the area.
  • Music teachers: Some music teachers offer reduced-cost or free lessons to help low-income children gain access to an arts education. In addition, some local non-profits provide free music classes to youths.
  • Foundations: Certain foundations in the United States offer scholarships for entrepreneurial endeavors.
  • Trade union|Labor/trade unions: Major unions often offer scholarships for members and their dependent children.[citation needed]
  • Houses of worship: The local house of worship may or may not have any scholarships for their members, but the religious organization or headquarters may have some available. Of course, theology study is highly encouraged.
  • Chamber of commerce: Many chambers of commerce offer (usually small) grants to students in the community, especially those planning on careers in business and public service. Even if they do not offer any themselves, one can usually get a listing of members, and many of them may offer small scholarships to local students.
  • Other volunteer organizations: Many organizations offer scholarships or award grants to students whose background or chosen field overlaps the field of the organization. For example, local chapters of professional societies may help the studies of exceptionally distinguished students of the region. Similarly, charity organizations may offer help, especially if the late parent of the student was a member of the organization (e.g., a Masonic lodge might help the orphan of a lodge brother.) This kind of scholarship is mostly ad hoc.
  • School: Old, well-known schools are often endowed with scholarship funds.
  • University: Old, well-established universities may have funds to finance the studies of extremely talented students of little means. Eligibility often requires that a student belong to some special category or be among a nation’s best. However, universities provide information on scholarships and grants, possibly even internship opportunities.
  • PSAT/NMSQT: In the United States, students are offered the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT test, usually in their junior year of high school. National Merit Scholarship programs are initially determined by the scores received on the PSAT/NMSQT test. Some private scholarship programs require applicants to take the PSAT. The test can be used as preparation for the SAT.
  • Enrichment Centres: In certain countries, enrichment centers have begun to provide scholarships.[4]
  • Disabilities: Students with disabilities may be able to apply for awards intended for people with disabilities. This may be disabilities in general or in relation to a specific disability.[5]

Battle Pirates 2012

  • Note that the fleet in the first slot moves slower than the rest due to a programming error in the game. That means if you are to repair something, the leftmost slot is to be preferred.
  • To repair your ships faster in the early stages of the game break up your fleet into segments and repair them so that the fleets repair time is less than 5 mins.
    • To do this, remove damaged ships from a fleet until the repair time says less that 5 mins then repair those ships.
    • After you get those ships in the fleet repaired add more damaged ones keeping the time below 5 min so your can use the speed-up feature and complete repairs fast until the fleet is fully repaired.
  • Making ships that have 300 ship health allows you to speed-up repair on them because it needs 5 minutes to repair. If you have a repair officer your ships can have a maximum of 325 health & still have instant repairs.
    • The game repairs at a speed of 1 ship health per second. So, 5 min max time for speed-up feature makes 60 ship health per min equals 5 X 60 = 300 ship health.
    • With the use of the tip above you can repair a fleet of ships, were each ship has less than 300 ship health, that should take close to 25 min in less that 1 min.
    • Subs repair at 1 ship health per 4 seconds.
    • Example 1. Marauder with Titanium I armour 295 armour which is a 4min 55sec repair time.
  • Place ships of less than 300 ship health as the front ships in fleets that are attacking Draconian fleets so they can soak up the damage and have heavier ships following them up to deal the killing blow. This will allow you to keep fleets repaired up and in fighting shape when dealing with most NPC fleets.
  • There is an offline Ship Builder utility available in which different hull configurations can be tested offline. It gives build times, damage, repair time, etc. However, please note that as of the time this was written, the Offline Ship Builder does not incorporate some of the newer specials, or any draconian technology.
  • Timing out battles – If your fleet gets into a battle by mistake with another players fleet both players are able to get out of the battle without taking any damage by each turning their fleets away from each other and staying out of weapon range. Then the players just have to wait 5 mins for the battle to time out.
  • Flipping between ships in ship battles – While in fleet combat you can hit the left and right arrow keys to jump or flip between the ships in your fleet.
  • If your fleet attacks a base, it can hold up to 500% of it’s regular max cargo. That is provided that the base has so much resources.
  • If your fleet is mining and is in danger of being attacked by a Draconian fleet, you can release the resource. Then your fleet won’t be attacked. Afterwards you can easily reclaim the resource and continue mining.
  • A white skull on a resource or salvage fleet means you control a mine or cargo ship, a red skull means it is controlled by another player, and a red dragon on the flag mean’s it is computer controlled. You can very easy take over a salvage fleet or resource that is unoccupied and controlled by another player. Careful though, the other player might not like it.
  • You can hide a fleet under a drac base for an ambush. You can’t be hit that way. Place a bookmark on the Draconian base. After you have set the bookmark… drive the fleet over the drac base, then while it is over the drac base… click the move here button from the bookmark and your fleet will stop under the drac base.
  • The hulls in your fleet don’t appear in the same order in combat as in the dock. In combat the first ship (your flagship) is in the middle. From the rear your ships appear in the order 2, 3 1, 4, 5.
