Matthew Yglesias [sic], quoting related research (see the source paper here) claims that a disproportionate amount of scholarships go to non-hispanic, caucasian students in the US.  He also says that this has more to do with universities trying to produce more successful graduates: “It turns out to be more cost-effective to invest in recruiting better inputs. And since high school seniors from high socioeconomic status families tend to already be better-prepared for college than kids from low-socioeconomic status families, that means that financial aid resources naturally flow to the high-socioeconomic status students.”

The conclusion from both the research paper and Yglesias both seem to be that merit-based scholarships go to the better off.

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.

Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
