AXA Achievement Scholarship

by Suada Kolovic

Yes, there still may be a few weeks left of fall but it’s not too early to start thinking about what's to come in the months ahead. For high school seniors, that often means college applications and searching for ways to pay for further education without breaking the bank. Scholarships are an excellent way to do this... especially when a single scholarship can make a significant dent in funding your education.

Need more proof? Check out the AXA Achievement Scholarship. Here are the details: The AXA Achievement Scholarship awards $670,000 annually. Fifty two students - one from each state, the District of Colombia and Puerto Rico – receive scholarships of $10,000. Of those 52 students, 10 students are chosen as national winners and receive an additional $15,000 scholarship award and the opportunity for an internship with AXA Equitable. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate ambition and drive, determination to set and reach goals and the ability to succeed in college.

The deadline is December 15th but for more information on this and other scholarships, conduct a free scholarship search at Scholarships.com.

Rapper Juicy J Awards Student $50,000 College Scholarship

January 16, 2014

Rapper Juicy J Awards Student $50,000 College Scholarship

by Suada Kolovic

While it may come to no surprise that Michele Obama is urging young students to pursue a higher education, she’s not the only one who understands its value. Take for instance Rapper Juicy J: He recently awarded a young woman a $50,000 “twerking” scholarship! Did we mention that her winning entry involved no twerking at all?

Last August, the Oscar-winning rapper launched the Juicy J Scholarship Foundation and tweeted that he would award the scholarship “to the best chick that can twerk.” He later admitted that entrants were not required to do the popular dance move and that he would give the funds to the college-bound recipient who needed it most. And that individual was Zaire Holmes, a 19-year-old student at the State College of Florida. Holmes, a full-time mother and student, said in her video submission that her aspirations of becoming a doctor would require 11 years of schooling and that financial aid alone would not cover her expenses. Touched by her story, Juicy J announced her as the winner and said, “You remind me of myself. When I was 19, I was like really, really working hard.” After her big win, the South Florida native shared her hopes of transferring from the State College of Florida to either the University of Florida or the University of South Florida to study medicine. (For more on this story, click here.)

What do you think of the rapper’s take on giving back to the community? Let us know in the comments section.
