Who's Eligible: High school seniors
Award Amount: $2,000
Due Date: September 1
The American Fire Sprinkler Association wants you to know about fire sprinklers and they are willing to pay you for your efforts. To qualify for this award, students must read an essay on automatic fire sprinklers (available here) and then take a multiple choice quiz on it. For each question they get right, students will be entered to win one of ten $2,000 scholarships. Students can only take one online quiz and funds from the award can be used at two and four-year institutions as well as at technical and trade schools. Since this award does not rely on your financial need, grades, or standardized test scores, whether or not you apply should be a no-brainer. A second scholarship contest that operates along the same rules is available to all US citizens with a high school diploma or GED. The AFSA Second Chance Scholarship has a grand prize of $1,000.
