Scholarship Thursday 23 – Coca Cola Scholars, Golden Key GE Engineering

Submitted by

Can you believe it’s already Thursday again? For many of you, this is the start of a long holiday weekend. If you’ve got Monday off for Columbus Day, why not dedicate a few hours to completing some college scholarship applications?  Here are two great opportunities:

1. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation

Back in August, I told you about this phenomenal scholarship opportunity. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation provides $3.4 million in annual scholarships through its two nationally recognized programs: the four-year award and the two-year award. October 31st is the deadline for Coca-Cola four-year award program, which provides 50 high school seniors with a four-year $20,000  scholarship (that’s $20K/year for for years!), and it gives another 200 high school seniors a four-year $10,000 scholarship. Scholarships are intended to reward leadership and excellence, with a focus on academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community service. As you can imagine, these scholarships are uber-competitive, so you will want to be sure that your application is perfect. Apply on-line at the Coca Cola Scholars Foundation. (Coca-Cola also offers a scholarship program for students in two-year programs, which you may recall me posting about back in May.)

2. Golden Key International Honor Society General Electric Engineering Excellence Scholarship

Are you an engineering student? Are you a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society?  If so, you may be eligible to win a $1,000 scholarship. To apply, start by registering your scholarship application, then polish up your best engineering related paper or report, not in excess of 10 pages of text. Next, write a 500-word essay describing the assignment for writing the paper, your greatest challenge in writing the paper, the lessons your learned from completing the assignment, and, if you could rewrite the report, what would have done differently.  Your application will also need a letter of recommendation from a professor of engineering and a current academic transcript.  Application deadline: October 15.
