Scholarship and leadership development opportunities for juniors and seniors

November 10th, 2020

While the bulk of scholarship opportunities are awarded through universities, some private scholarships offer not only funding, but amazing experiences and networks. Today, we highlight two opportunities that appeared in the Shrop Ed inbox recently.

The GE-Reagan Foundation is in search of high-achieving high school seniors with leadership, drive, integrity and citizenship. While many of our Shrop Ed advisees exhibit exactly these characteristics, please understand that this award is extremely competitive. The application is due by January 5, 2021; for more information follow the link:

Juniors searching for leadership development have another opportunity through the Bezos Scholars program. With the deadline also in January, now is a great time to learn about the program and begin the application process. Bezos is also a highly reputable and competitive program. For more information, please go to the Bezos website.

If you’d like to conduct a scholarship search and wonder where to begin, websites like FastWeb and use your profile and a variety of criteria to match you to scholarship opportunities that are right for you. Warning: the application process can be time consuming and the criteria very specific so I always suggest reading the fine print to determine if it is worth your time to apply.
