Today’s scholarship is through the fast food company Wendy’s. The Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship Program is a scholarship for high school students. If I was going to explain this scholarships in three words, I would say “students,” “athletes,” and “leaders.”
To be eligible, you must attend high school in the United States and have minimum of a 3.0 GPA.
In addition, students must participate in at least one of 27 eligible school-sponsored sports. These sports range from baseball, football, lacrosse, and soccer to badminton, judo, and fencing. Check out the scholarship website for the complete list.
The final requirement is that students need to be leaders in their communities “and serve as a role model for underclassmen” in their schools.
We will admit, some of the awards are Wendy’s giftcards. Normally, this would disappoint us immensely, Do not fear, because successful students will be able to earn grants for their high school–12 National Finalists will be awarded a $2,000 donation for their high school and the two winners will be awarded a $10,000 donation for their high school!
The deadline for this scholarship is 10/2/2012.
The application for this can be found online.
Best of luck to all students.
