AXA is a French Insurance Company based out of Paris, France. Each branch office of the AXA provides up to twelve scholarships for high school seniors, so this is a great opportunity for students. Each scholarship is worth $2,000!
The deadline for the scholarship is February 1 2015, (or until the first 10,000 applications are received) so there is still plenty of time to apply. The application can be found here.
According to the website, the AXA is looking for the following characteristics for applicants:
- Ambition and drive
- Determination to set and reach goals
- Respect for self, family and community
- Ability to succeed in college
The rest of the application is very straightforward–a few short essays and a recommendation form. This is a really worthwhile scholarship to apply to, so, as always, good luck!
