All-USA Academic Team scholarship and others open for application

We are seeking outstanding student leaders from our college to apply for the All-USA Academic Team and the Coca-Cola Academic Team Programs sponsored by Follett Higher Education Group, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, The Coca-Cola Foundation, and Phi Theta Kappa. Recipients will be awarded nearly $400,000 in scholarships.  The student and college have the opportunity to receive national press recognition should one of our nominees be identified as a national scholar.   

In addition to recognition by Follett and Coca-Cola, nominees to these programs are recognized in All-State Academic Team programs held in 38 states. All-State Team programs may offer academic scholarships, newspaper coverage, medallions, and/or certificates to scholars. By nominating students to the All-USA Academic Team national program, we are able to provide additional scholarship opportunities for nominees to which they would otherwise not have access.

At this time, we are seeking qualified applications.  In selecting nominees to represent our institution, we ask you to consider the eligibility criteria to determine if you might be a good fit for the scholarship.  The scholarships look to award students with outstanding academic rigor and grade point averages; participation in honors programs; awards, honors, and recognition for academic achievement, and service to the college and community.

In addition, the focal point of the application is the essay. This should center around one endeavor undertaken by the student that utilized their two-year college education to improve their respective community or college.  Judges look for innovative, creative, original and lasting achievements or undertakings.
