Featured scholarship

Scholarship: Active Life Scholarship to Tackle Your Weaknesses
Amount: $1,000
Due Date: May 31
Sponsor: Get Up! Get Active!
Details: We all have weaknesses—and we know it. The problem with that is we tend to focus on our strengths more than improving where we fall a little short. With this scholarship you’ll get to dig deep and really explore the areas you (hopefully) want to get a little better at. Not so great at public speaking? Are you a procrastinator? Not sure how to study or prepare for a test? Share your thoughts in 150 words and you’re entered. And hey, even if you don’t win, you did some solid soul searching and are already a better version of yourself than before you entered!

Upcoming due dates

Amount: $100-$1,000
Due Date: March 11
