While a plethora of scholarships exist to award students based on ethnic background, extracurricular activity and athletics, some students want to be noticed for the hard work they’ve done in the classroom. Whether it’s by joining an honor society or ranking first in the class, an honors scholarship not only recognizes that achievement but also awards it. As an honors scholarship recipient, students can continue their academic excellence in the college classroom environment.
Hard-working honor students have little time to apply to colleges; let alone spare minutes to search for scholarships. That’s why the Fastweb database contains quite a collection of honors scholarship opportunities.
