As all we know, universities offerscholarship to the outstanding academic students. And there is another policyfor the students who are outstanding but with limited pockets. However, thispolicy has caused great controversy, because if someone wants to win thescholarship they must have to make a speech, which requires the currentsituation and family incoming of poverty. As to this policy, different peoplehave different views.
Some people think this policy hurt the poorstudents’ feeling every badly. The poverty-stricken students who want the moneysupported from university are required to make speech in front of the wholeclass. They have to list the evidence that could prove their poor situation. Someof them even speak out the tragic experience in their childhood to convincetheir classmate to vote for them. People who against this poor-mouth speechpolicy hold the opinion that it makes a double hurt to the poor students,poverty already make them feel bad and they have to expose their poverty toeveryone in order to get rid of poverty, which makes their life more sadly.
However, some people think that this kindof speech policy would help the poor students not only in the poverty but alsocould gain the faith to fight for their poverty. People cannot choose thefamily they were born into, but they can always choose their future, so if theywant to get out of the current situation they have to face it first, and be notafraid to fight for it. No pain no gain.
Weighting up there two arguments intoaccount, I am for the former one, the scholarship seats are limited, and the numberof poor students are large. Most of them are ended up with nothing. Hence, thepolicy should be changed.
