DALLAS -The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) is now accepting entries for its popular online scholarship program, the AFSA High School Scholarship Contest. The scholarship will award a total of $20,000 to 10 lucky high school seniors.
The High School Senior Scholarship Contest is open to 2020-2021 high school seniors who wish to pursue a college degree or technical education. Ten winners will be randomly chosen, and each winner will receive a $2,000 prize that will be paid directly to the accredited educational institution of the winner's choice, to be used for tuition and/or books for the Fall 2021 semester. To enter, high school seniors should visit www.afsascholarship.org where they will read an educational essay with information about fire sprinklers. After reading, the student will then be asked to take an eight-question, multiple-choice reading comprehension test. For each question answered correctly, students will receive one entry into a drawing for one of the 10 $2,000 scholarships. A total of eight entries into the drawing are possible.
The 2020-2021 high school contest is currently open online and will run through 12:00 a.m. Central Time April 1, 2021. Since 1996, AFSA has provided over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships to help fulfill the educational dreams of students from across the nation and raise public awareness about fire sprinklers. Nearly 50,000 high school seniors from across the United States entered the 2019-2020 contest.
Now entering its 25th year, the AFSA scholarship continues to grow, educating over 4.3 million users through this contest. AFSA scholarships are open to U.S. citizens or legal residents and are not based on financial need. For details or to apply, visit www.afsascholarship.org.
