In the United States, each program year begins in September, when information and application instructions are mailed to all middle-level and high schools in the 50 United States and Washington, D.C., and to these officially designated local organizations:

Local Honorees are selected at participating schools and organizations in November. From these winners, an independent judging organization - International Scholarship and Tuition Services - names the top volunteers in each state and Washington, D.C. Results are announced in February.

Ten National Honorees are then chosen by a panel of prominent public figures, and announced in May at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C.


SCHOLARSHIP EXPERTS “EDUCATION MATTERS” SCHOLARSHIP

Why does education matter to YOU?

As a scholarship seeker, you're probably already well-aware of the importance of an education. But, what about the naysayers? Have you come across someone who's tried to talk you out of college, saying that it's not worth it?

While continuing your education takes time, and money, there's a certain value that everyone is hoping to achieve. Our Education Matters Scholarship is giving you the chance to state why education matters. Why does education matter to you? What is the value you hope to receive from college? What would you do to convince the college cynics?

Speaking up for education could lead to helping you pay for your own. One applicant will be awarded our $5,000 Education Matters Scholarship.

Applicants must:

  • Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application

  • Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia

  • Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2022) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education

Submit an online short written response (250 words or less) for the question:

"What would you say to someone who thinks education doesn't matter, or that college is a waste of time and money? "

The Education Matters Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around February 28, 2017.
