Wells Fargo College STEPS Sweepstakes

Wells Fargo wants to keep you informed on the financial side of college.  So, to encourage you to sign up for their emails containing college planning information and details on applying for financial aid, they are offering one hundred $1000 scholarships to high school students and another one hundred $1000 scholarships for college students.  All you have to do to enter their drawings (four over the next year) is to sign up no later than August 13, 2014.   You’ll find all the rules here.

Do Something.org Community Improvement Scholarship

This is going to be an interesting one!  For seven days (August 4 to August 10) Do Something.org will be posting one new mystery challenge per day centered around community improvement.  In particular, the challenges will cover the environment, animals, bullying & discrimination, physical & mental heal, poverty and homelessness, and education. For every challenge that you complete, you will be entered into a drawing for one of two $10,000 scholarship awards.  Read all the rules here. Sign up now and participate the first week of August!

Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology

Students in grades 9 through 12 can compete in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology.    Students undertake individual or group research projects and submit all data by September 30, 2014.  Winners then compete at the  regional and national levels between now and May to earn scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $100,000.    You may already have a project that you’ve done, or you may have a great idea for one.  If so, take a look at the competition guidelines here and register for the competition now.  Note: this is an annual competition, so if you can’t complete your project in the next two months, consider participating next year!  It’s a great opportunity to earn some scholarship dollars!
