AXA Achievement Scholarship

Website: http://www.axa-equitable.com/axa-foundation/AXA-achievement-scholarship.html

Who's Eligible: High school seniors planning on enrolling in an accredited US University.

Award Amount: Up to $25,000

Due Date: December 15


Even if you do not land the $25,000 prize, you can still bank with this scholarship. AXA hands out a $10,000 prize to one student from each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. While there are no hard and fast rules in terms of GPA requirements or community service hours, AXA scholars must be ambitious, support their community, and have a record of setting goals and achieving them. Those who advance to the top ten walk away with the cash as well as an enviable internship with AXA that could lead to a post-college job.
