Today’s scholarship is the 2012 TrueFit Good Citizen Scholarship which is sponsored by Citizens Bank. This scholarship is for students who have been “good citizens” in their communities. We profiled this scholarship last year, but it is opening again for 2012 on April 1!
This scholarship asks students to write a 500-word essay or create a 90-second video about how they got involved in their community. The highest award for this scholarship is worth $7,500! You can check out some of the winning entries from last year on the Citizens Bank Facebook Page.
This scholarship is for students who are attending a four-year college or university or who are enrolled in a graduate program. To be eligible for this award, students must be residents of (or attending school) in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Ohio, or Michigan.
Again, this scholarship opens back up on April 1, 2012, so check out the scholarship website then!
Best of luck!
