Scholarships for Motivation

Motivation is crucial to success. And it can also help fund your college education. Universities, nonprofits and other organizations provide scholarships to students who have demonstrated a high degree of motivation. If you've done something that requires a great deal of motivation – perhaps completing a marathon, organizing a large fundraiser or beating the odds to get accepted to your dream school – then you may qualify for one of these scholarships. To apply, you will probably need to submit transcripts showing academic achievement. A personal essay and letters of recommendation from people who can attest to your motivation also may be required. Get motivated to apply for financial assistance by looking through this list of scholarships for motivation.
