Check out these awesome scholarship opportunities for High School Students from our friends at Going Merry!
Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship
The Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship Program assists high school seniors who have completed an advanced placement computer science course, or who have taken an advanced placement computer science test and plan to continue their education at an accredited four-year college or university majoring in computer science, software engineering, computer engineering or other computer related field of study. Winners of the award receive $10,000 per year at an accredited four-year college or university as well as a paid summer internship at Amazon after their freshman year of college.
Technology Addiction Awareness Scholarship
by Digital Responsibility
Young people spend an average of 7.5 hours a day consuming media--and this doesn't include computer use for schoolwork--according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. With technology always at the ready at your fingertips, it can be a challenge to unplug. But taking a break from technology is healthy for both the mind and body.
The purpose of this scholarship is to help you understand the negative effects of too much screen time.
Application Process For the initial application, you'll need to write a max 140-character ending to the sentence: "Instead of spending time with technology, I'd rather...". The top 10 applications will be selected as finalists. The finalists will be asked to write a full length 500- to 1,000-word essay about technology addiction, and then the final winner will receive the scholarship money.
Vegetarian Resource Group Scholarships
by The Vegetarian Resource Group
Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, The Vegetarian Resource Group each year will award $20,000 in college scholarship money to graduating U.S. high school students who have promoted vegetarianism in their schools and/or communities. Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or fowl. Vegans are vegetarians who do not use other animal products such as dairy or eggs.
