The Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship of Florida Announces Two New Awards

The Florida-based Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship challenges students with thought-provoking and controversial essay topics.

The Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship of Florida is pleased to announce two new award recipients. The scholarship application required each applicant to submit an essay on what steps they would take to solve the US immigration crisis. "Each of the students wrote high-quality and engaging responses to how they would solve the nation's immigration crisis." said Scott Cooper, "We would like to thank every student for their application and we wish them the very best success in their educational endeavors."


The first award recipient was Heidi Greenfield of Seal Beach, California. Heidi currently attends Pepperdine University. "I am honored to be chosen for the Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship award!" said Heidi, "Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to continue my education." Heidi's essay suggested a traditional approach to grant all immigrants temporary work visas with a path to citizenship but also focused on "reducing the animosity towards immigrants by ensuring everyone is contributing toward a better society."

The second award recipient was Erica Rawlins of Snelville, Georgia. Erica currently attends Syracuse University. “The Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship is such a blessing, especially in my final semester at Syracuse University." said Erica, "I am eternally grateful to this organization for pouring into my academic career.”  Erica's essay suggested a unique approach to the immigration crisis. Rather than continue to vilify our nation's immigrants, her suggestion was to relocate immigrants to small towns across the United States where young residents have been historically fleeing for better work opportunities in the city.

The Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship is unique in the sense that it requires students to write essays that are thought-provoking and controversial. The scholarship committee is looking to award creative thinkers. It does not base its awards on GPA or the student's prior academic achievements.

Applicants to the Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship are required to be entering or enrolled in a post-secondary program including Business, Business Management, Marketing, Communications, Journalism, Healthcare, Education or Fitness.

The Scott Cooper Miami Scholarship is an arm of the Scott Cooper Miami Project, also known as Scott Cooper Miami. It is a private research organization that provides an investigative reporting platform and develops solutions to public policy challenges and focuses on “forgotten communities” throughout the world with the goal of making them safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. The Scott Cooper Miami Project is nonprofit and nonpartisan and committed to the public interest. The organization was originally based in Miami, Florida but has since relocated to Istanbul, Turkey.
