An easy scholarship from 2400 Expert, an SAT preparation service. Learn about a few details associated with the scholarship application and some tips on how to increase your chances of winning.
This scholarship comes from a website that helps prepare or improve a student’s score on the SAT. The deadline for the 2400 Expert National Scholarship is July 31 and the award amount is $500. In order to be eligible you need to be a high school freshmen, sophomore, junior or senior and plan to enroll at an accredited 4-year post-secondary institution. This is a fairly easy scholarship that simply requires you to fill out an application and write an essay 500 words or less answering this question “Do you believe standardized test scores (such as the SAT, ACT, APs, etc) are a good indicator of students’ academic abilities? Why or why not?”.
The application can be downloaded from the site and must be mailed to the address listed below. On the application you’ll be required to provide your GPA, class rank, the current grade you’re in along with basic contact information. It also asks you what your career goals are and any leadership positions or awards you might have attained. Extracurricular activities and community service are also important for this scholarship. If you’re selected as the winner, the check will be sent to your home address around September 15. As with any application, when asked for extracurricular activities or community service you’ve been involved with, it’s a good idea to have a full list before sending your application in. If you haven’t been that active outside school and so can’t completely fill out the application, then it’ll probably be a good idea to try to find a few programs that interest you to join. Still though, even if you can’t provide ample information on other activities, mail it in but make note of that for next time. Bottomline is that at first glance, your application having no empty lines will standout above those that are only partially filled out. When finished with the application, just send it to this address:
