If you missed the KFC $20,000 Twitter scholarship, don’t worry. You may still be eligible for the annual KFC Scholars Award.
Winners of the KFC Scholars Award will be given up to $5,000 annually; the scholarship money can be used for tuition, books, room and board, and fees.
To be eligible for the KFC Scholars Award, you must:
- Be a high school senior graduating this school year (between 12/1/10 and 8/31/11)
- Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher
- Demonstrate financial need
- Plan on attending an in-state, public university or college
To apply for this scholarship, visit the Colonel online at KFCScholars.org. KFC will be accepting applications for this scholarship program from December 1, 2010 to February 9, 2011.
By far one of the easiest scholarships to apply for! Five text fields and one click away from a $2,000 scholarship. Thes best part is it renews monthly, so if you don’t win this month, remember to check back in next month to try again!
- Must be a U.S. Student
- Must currently be enrolled in High School
Do you cringe at the prospect of writing an essay with 150 words? I know we have several eager scholarship searchers out there who do. The thought of trying to come up with a response of a few paragraphs or more is, for some students, quite the turn-off. In honor of those applicants, we are pleased to announce the perfect prospective scholarship program for you!
Starting November 18, 2010 and running through November 26, 2010, one single tweet of 140 characters or less (including the hashtag #KFCScholar) could earn you $20,000 towards college. The KFC scholarship committee is asking why you exemplify Colonel Sander’s committment to education, and enriching your community, and why you are deserving of a college scholarship.
The winning tweet will be selected based on 40 percent creativity, 30 percent need and 30 percent drive. Only high school seniors are eligible to apply, and KFC will be announcing the winner on December 1, 2010. The recipient will receive up to $5,000 per year for the next four years to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a public university in his/her own state.
How much can you say in 140 characters? Here’s what your peers are already saying on Twitter.
I was sitting in my ergonomic, black, swivel-capable, blogging chair, looking out the window, when “Ding!” another email hit my inbox. Already looking for a diversion, I set aside my blogging mindset and switched gears immediately. Post haste, without missing a beat or moving at all, I was reading an email from one of the most successful scholarship searchers ever, the one and only Scholarship Queen, Shayla R. Price!
