According to the website, “The College JumpStart Scholarship is an annual, merit-based competition — financial need is not considered — that is open to 10th-12th graders, college students and non-traditional students. The main requirement is that you are committed to going to school and can express your goals for getting a higher education. The first place prize is a $1,000 scholarship to help cover educational expenses. This award can be used at any college or university in the United States.”
The scholarship asks applicants to write a brief (250 word) essay on one of the following topics:
(1) What are your educational goals?
(2) How will winning this scholarship help you attain your goals?
(3) Write about a time when “hard work” paid off.
(4) Describe your experience with community service and volunteering and how that has affected you and your outlook.
The deadline for this scholarship is April 15, 2019.
As always, best of luck!
