AXA Achievement Scholarship is looking to award college scholarships to high school seniors who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in their activities in school, the community or the workplace.
The insurance company’s AXA Foundation offers more than a million dollars in scholarships to young people throughout the nation representing all 50 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico.
The program is open to high school seniors who plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal residents and must have demonstrated ambition and self-drive as evidenced by an outstanding achievement in a school, community, or workplace activity.
To be one of the scholarship winners, also known as AXA Achievers, one must be ethnically and economically diverse, as well as having these qualities: ambition and drive; determination to set and reach goals; respect for self, family and community; ability to succeed in college.
They encourage interested students who are eligible to apply early. They will only be accepting the first 10,000 completed and submitted electronically by the deadline date to be able to enter.
AXA Achievers from each state nationwide will receive scholarship awards. Aside from the scholarship for the student, the recipient’s high school will also receive a grant.
The scholarship is sponsored by the AXA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of AXA US, and is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in December of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,500 to $25,000.
