Scholarships for Juniors

Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award  / Deadline: March 15

The Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award, a $5,000 scholarship program for Iowa juniors, does not evaluate grades, test scores, essays or financial need. Applicants propose a project they want to accomplish.  Up to 15 juniors are chosen in April to participate and then complete their projects over the summer.  In the fall of their senior year they make presentations about their projects to a panel of distinguished judges at the Hoover Presidential Library-Museum in West Branch, IA near Iowa City. Each student receives a $1,500 stipend. In addition, three are chosen to win $5,000 scholarships to be used at a two or four-year college/university anywhere in the nation. http://hooverpresidentialfoundation.org/uncommon-student.php   For more information: Deadline: March 15.
