About the CarDonors Scholarship: Started in 2004, CarDonors.com awards one $500 scholarship every three months. The deadlines for our scholarships are as follows: May 31, August 31, December 31 and March 15th. Click here to see past winners.
When each winner is chosen, we email all applicants with a winner notification, so if you apply, you’re agreeing to let us email you the winner information (the anti-spam people make us tell you that up-front). For more information on the scholarship, check out the Scholarship FAQs, which are expanding all the time.
Here are the criteria for this year’s CarDonors.com scholarships. Each applicant must:
1) Have at least a 3.0 grade point average. If you’re a high school student, this obviously refers to your high school GPA, weighted or unweighted. If you’re a college student, please use your college GPA, not your high school GPA — unless you are a first-semester freshman and do not yet have a college GPA. In that case, use your high school GPA.
2) Be a student in good standing at his/her current institution. This simply means that you’re not on academic probation or, of course, suspended from school for any reason.
3) Be attending or planning to attend an accredited U.S. college in the 2010-2011 or 2011-2012 school year. So if you’re a current college student, that’s fine. If you’ve just graduated from high school and are headed to college, that’s also fine. If you just finished your junior year of high school and are getting an early start on scholarship applications, that’s fine, too. But if you’re entering your junior year of high school or below, you are not eligible.
