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.

Miami, Florida, United States - January 27, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —

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.


The Scott Cooper Florida-based Miami Scholarship has announced its newest scholarship opportunity. Students are required to submit an essay on one of three topics.

(1) What Can Each Of Us Do To Stop Global Warming?
(2) Do You Believe Jeffrey Epstein Really Commit Suicide?
(3) Who Do You Support For President And Why?

Applications are due by February 15, 2020. The winner will be announced on March 1, 2020.

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Feb 26, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Feb 26, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Feb 26, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

Cowboys to introduce McCarthy as club's 9th coach Wednesday

Feb 26, 2020

FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys will introduce Mike McCarthy as the ninth coach in franchise history Wednesday. The club made the announcement Tuesday, a day after McCarthy reached agreement on a deal to replace Jason Garrett. It's the second coaching stop for the 56-year-old McCarthy, who won a Super Bowl and went to the playoffs nine times in 12-plus seasons with Green Bay. The Packers won the title at the home of the Cowboys nine years ago. They went to the NFC championship game four times under McCarthy, who is 125-77-2 in the regular season and 10-8 in the...
