This scholarship is sponsored by the Jiffy Lube company, an automotive service business. To be eligible, a student must be from Utah, New Mexico, and select areas of Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, or Oregon (to see what areas exactly, check out their scholarship website). The scholarship is pretty simple; write a 500 word essay about your goals in life, or, as Jiffy Lube cleverly puts it, what “drives you”! These scholarships range in amount; Utah has a $5000 overall scholarship award, while Kansas has a $1500. You’ll just have to look at your state’s specific page to see how much you can win. There are also two different scholarship types for each state; one is for students 15-17 and enrolled in Driver’s Ed, and the other is for high school students 16-18.
The deadline for all of the scholarships is March 28, 2011, so act quickly!
If you are looking for the actual application or rules and regulations, pdf links are supplied on the scholarship website. If you want to send in your application, or have a question, contact:
