I am often asked about scholarships for students who are not seniors. There are not a lot, but they are definitely out there…and this is one of them! If you are a student between the ages of 15-17, currently attending high school, and are currently enrolled in a driver’s education program either in the private sector or in Utah’s public high schools for the 2013-2014 school year, you are eligible to apply for this scholarship. You will need to fill out a very short application (1/2 page) and write a 500 word essay on “What Drives You?”
The Jiffy Lube “What Drives You?” Scholarship Program, has been created to give a unique and early opportunity for high school students to gain funding for college or other qualified technical and/or professional programs through a scholarship award sponsored by neighborhood Jiffy Lube owners. Jiffy Lube wants to learn more about what drives these students now and where they see themselves down the road. The scholarship awards will not be based on a student’s GPA or other standard qualifying criteria, rather each individual will be allowed to express his/her “inner drive” and personal ambition — his/her chance to be behind the wheel.
