Summer Scholarships from Across the Web

National Ice Cream Retailers Association Scholarships
What says summer better than ice cream? Whatever your preferred flavor, the National Ice Cream Retailers Association annually offers ten scholarships totaling $17k!

American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) Scholarships
Perhaps the antithesis of ice cream, which represents summer happiness, is the dreaded summer mosquito.

However, in this one instance, mosquitoes can bring joy because the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) offers scholarships to students researching related fields.

Wholesale Fireworks Scholarships
For sixteen years and counting, Wholesale Fireworks has awarded Ohio high school and college students annual scholarships.

Scholarship applications are accepted from January 10 through March 31, so this year’s deadline has passed but we had to include fireworks within our summer scholarships.

Mark it for next year!

State Fair of Texas Scholarships
Everything’s bigger in Texas – their hats, their boots, their state fairs and the scholarships that they offer at them!

Over the past 22 years, the State Fair of Texas Scholarship Program has awarded a total of over $3.7 million dollars to 1,379 students!

Emerging Leaders Scholarship
If you don’t love the idea of some serious waterpark fun – this opportunity is not for you.

Rather than a monetary Emerging Leaders Scholarship, this award consists of a travel package to the World Waterpark Association (WWA) show.

How cool is that?
