Here are some of the reasons why young people would like to join our programmes!

We want to make sure that young people understand their why. We give them that chance by telling us why they want to join one of our programmes.

So, as part of the application process for each term, we ask all applicants to write a short essay. The short essay allows them to tell us about themselves. The essay also tells us who their role models are. But more importantly, it tells us why they want to join GT Scholars.

Here are a few excerpts from some of our favourite essays from young people that we received this term.

Abigail – Age 15

I am a very ambitious person; I believe that joining GT Scholars would be the perfect way for me to successfully achieve my academic and career aspirations of working in the finance or science industry. Also, I believe joining GT Scholars would help me to improve my grades in school. And in turn, enter any top university or apprenticeship of my choice in the future – Abigail, age 15

Ameer – Age 11

I would like to join the GT Scholars programme because I would like to go to UCL and study computer science and mechanical engineering. I would like to learn complicated programming so that I can develop software that can help people and companies – Ameer, age 11

Pedram – Age 15

I personally would like to join the programme solely due to my wanting to advance in my subjects and to get a good future career. As I have chosen maths as my preferred subject for application, I’d like to work on that and improve it to the best of my ability. I wouldn’t say that I’m struggling in maths. However, I do believe that I could be performing far better than I currently am – Pedram, age 15

Jaylen – Age 14

Maths is one of my favourite subjects because of how easy it is for me. English, however is not easy due to it not being as literal and straight to the point as math is, I struggle a bit with analyzing texts, and when it comes to writing stories, I can think of an idea, but I struggle with getting the words onto a page. I hope the GT Scholars Programme can help me find English a bit easier and be able to tackle questions with more confidence – Jaylen, age 14

Maria-Stephanie – Age 15

I want to become a psychiatrist when I’m older. Therefore, I need to achieve the best and develop the skills I have now since it is a competitive field career. Joining the programme is important to me because I think I would really benefit from extra support with my work, and I believe that this programme will give me the help I need to be able to achieve the best I can possibly do – Maria-Stephanie, age 15

Jessica – Age 14

I would like to join the GT Scholars programme as I believe I could thrive with the support provided. I like that I would have access to a mentor as well as a tutor who can provide me with help and challenges in order to flourish. When I am older, I aspire to be a financial lawyer. I believe with the help of GT scholars. It is possible for me to achieve this goal. As both my mentor and my tutor could provide me with the support and advice I need to reach this – Jessica, age 14

Laura – Age 15

I would like to join the GT Scholars programme because I generally don’t have a set career path that I want to pursue, and I believe that this will help me to figure out my future career. My main aspiration is to own a business at some point in my life, but at the moment, I don’t have access to any workshops or opportunities that will help me decide if it actually is something that I want to pursue – Laura, Age 15

Ahmad – Age 15

I am very excited to see how this will turn out for me. I have heard that GT Scholars use a variety of techniques to help young people, and I want to be able to gain these techniques and use these techniques myself to help me. I am excited to be a part of this opportunity and this new tutoring experience. I want to gain a lot from this programme, and I believe I will – Ahmad, age 15
