Primary Scholarship

The $5,000 primary scholarship is awarded 3 times annually. However, we often receive mulitple great applications in a single addmisions period so multiple primary awards may be granted in a single term. 

Secondary Awards:

Many times a portion of an aplication will warrant a reward but not a primary scholarship. Therefore, other runner up and honorary mention scholarships are awarded on a merit basis ranging from $500-$2,500.

Additonal Benefits

All primary award recipients and some others with outstanding applications may receive scholarship, ambassadorship, or internship opportunities in addition to the primary scholarship opportunity. If one or many parts of your application impress or standout custom financial opportunities may be offered. All opportunities financial or otherwise are voluntary and non-binding.

How to Win !

GoING ABOVE AND BEYOND IS RARE AND REWARDED!

Primary Scholarship

We’ve noticed most applicants do the minimum to apply. So we’ve instituted a system to reward those who put in additional efforts and show additional promise beyond a singular winner. Multiple applicants can win the primary $5000 scholarship in a single session and if you truly excel in any portion of your application you will be financially awarded even if you do not win a primary or seconday scholarship

Secondary Scholarship

Even though we award multiple primary scholarships 3 times per year we often find that although sometimes a student may not meet the guidesline for a full scholarship. They are still extradonirary, this usually happens when an essay is below standards but they succesfully execute a marketing or promotional idea or concept on their own.

Merit Awards

Sometimes as a whole an application will not meet quality guidelines but a candidate will go above and beyond in another way. Either with an amazing viral video, spectacular idea, social sharing efforts, or just showing that they have gone beyond the guidelines in an effort to further our companies goals and have impressed. These merit awards range from $500 – $2,500 and are based on a specific action taken as part of the application and consideration process.
