That’s pretty good for an essay that only needs to be 500-750 words!

Awards per Year: 6
Award Is Open To: Middle School Students, High School Students

Guardian Life Insurance

Scholarship Name: Girls Going Places Entrepreneurship Award
Description: Entrepreneurship is more than just a buzz word; having entrepreneurial tendencies can be a great way to get some extra money to pay for college.

Applicants must write a short essay about what entrepreneurship and community service means to them, and submit a letter of recommendation from someone who has worked with them in an entrepreneurial capacity. Young women must be between the ages of 12-18 to qualify.
Award: up to $1,000
Awards Per Year: 12
Award Is Open To: Middle School Students, High School Students
How to Apply/Contact: More information about the scholarship is available at the Girls Going Places website, which includes a downloadable entry form (which must be signed by a parent or legal guardian).
