Common Knowledge Scholarship Competitions

Common Knowledge Scholarship Competitions
Common Knowledge Scholarship Competitions consist of internet-based quizzes with topics that range from general "common knowledge" to specific academic subjects. Developed by the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF), the program is available to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.

Applicants must be at least 14-years old, must be residing in the United States, and must be attending a school in the United States. International students are eligible as long as they are also living in and attending a school in the U.S. Applicants do not have to write an essay or fill out a long application; They only have to complete a short registration form.

Every quiz competition is conducted online via the Internet, and scores are based on a combination of time and accuracy. Students will receive 500 points for every correct answer and will lose one point for every second it takes them to answer the question. The students with the highest scores at the end of the competition are the winners, and will be contacted via email after the scholarship ends.

The scholarship awards may be used at any post-secondary school in the U.S, but in addition to scholarships, CKSF administers academic and life skills programs for students. Available to students of all ages, these programs include an internet safety initiative, an anti-bullying program, and a monthly intensive reading competition.

The deadline for this scholarship usually VARIES, and the award amount is usually $250 - $2,500.
