About a month ago, I applied for a scholarship through my school’s guidance department called the Clarkson High School Leadership Award.
It’s a scholarship only for juniors in high school, and the winner(s) of the award gets $15,000 a year towards the cost of going to Clarkson.
Clarkson is one of the potential schools I will be attending, and so I figured I would apply, because if I won it would increase my opportunity to go to such a renowned school.
On Monday, May 23, 2016, I received fantastic news on behalf of Clarkson University.
My guidance counselor called me to her office and told me I had won!
This scholarship is for “$15,000 annually for up to four years for high school juniors nominated by selected high schools who demonstrate leadership and outstanding academic achievement.” – Clarkson University.
This award is evaluated based on leadership, academic standing, and entrepreneurial potential.
I am so grateful for the opportunities that allowed me to get this award, including the Early College High School and the creation of this blog.
I could not be more excited to look further into my potential future at Clarkson during my college search!
Remember to apply for any scholarship you can! You never know how it might help you!
