• 2018 Bank of America Student Leaders Program

    Deadline for applications is February 2, 2018.

    The Bank of America Charitable Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2018 Student Leaders® program.  2018 will be our 15th year of offering this unique leadership experience.  We will be selecting five local high school students to represent Tampa Bay in 2018.

    Each applicant is required to provide a recommendation letter, signed and on letterhead, from their school with their application.

    About the Student Leaders Program:

    The Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,500 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities.  The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:

     

    • A summer eight-week paid internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization. 

     

    • A week-long, all-expense paid Student Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 8-13, 2018. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the Summit introduces students to aspects of civic, social and business leadership and provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change.

     

    How to apply:

    Students can apply for the program by going to www.bankofamerica.com/studentleaders. Please note the application deadline is February 2, 2018. There will be no deadline extensions.

  • Weird Scholarships

    My name is Pyper Barnes. I am the creator of a website called WeirdScholarships.net. I started the site a couple years ago with the intention of making it easier for students to find scholarships they would have never heard of beforehand.

    My website features thousands of small and unique scholarship opportunities. Most students forget about the smaller awards, but in many cases, these are the best opportunities for students. My site is dedicated to helping students find less competitive awards tailored to their personality, interests, and career goals.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could share my website with your community on your resources page or social media.

    For reference, the website is completely free to use and students are not required to provide any personal information.
