5 Great Scholarships that End in December
Looking for great scholarships? My College Guide has found a few scholarship gems that expire in December! Make good use of your holiday break: get those scholarship applications filled out and sent in! Someone has to win this free money for college – why not you?
Alvin Cox Memorial Fund – There’s a little writing involved in this scholarship prize. But with a chance to snag one of seven $500 scholarship prizes, it’s worth the bit of work! Just answer one of the two essay questions. There are no special requirements for this scholarship – go check it out!
Anne Ford and Allegra Ford Scholarship Award – Do you have a documented learning disability? We bet you didn’t know that it could net you a sweet scholarship prize! There’s a bit of paperwork involved in this one, so the sooner you can get started, the better. Still, $10,000 for two graduating high school seniors is definitely worth the effort!
AXA Achievement Scholarship – We like the odds in this national scholarship competition! Believe it or not, there are actually 52 winners — one winner from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico! The prize? A nice, tidy sum of $10,000! From there, ten students are chosen for an even bigger prize – $15,000 additional college dollars!
Haz La U Educational Grant Program – Hispanic? In high school? High school seniors need only to apply. Well, apply and answer three essay questions in 500 words or less. But, hey – there’s one $15,000 prize and ten $10,000 prizes at stake! Easy online submission is a fun, little bonus.
Olive Garden Pasta Tales Scholarship – Splendido! Now in its 15th year, students in grades 1-12 respond to the essay statement, “Describe how furthering your education beyond high school will help make your dreams come true” in 250 words or less. Not only do winners receive a $2,500 savings bond, they also gain a three day trip to New York City!
Still feeling the contest bug? Request free college information (you need it anyway) and instantly be entered in a chance to win an Apple iPad or one of four Apple iPods (or cash)!
