Last updated 4/7/2021 at 9:43am
The "What Drives You?" scholarship program, funded by Colorado Springs, Falcon, Fountain & Canon City area Jiffy Lube franchise group Griffin Fast Lube, LLC, is still accepting applications for the 2020-21 schoolyear. Jiffy Lube has extended the scholarship deadline to Monday, April 12, to give students more time to apply, at a time when FAFSA and other scholarship deadlines have already passed and are being awarded. The deadline is fast approaching, so interested students should apply as soon as possible.
The "What Drives You?" scholarship program is open to all high school students in the Colorado Springs area.
Jiffy Lube's local owners understand how important it is for communities to come together during this unique time in education, and have added an additional $1,500 scholarship award as an added incentive and support for students.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Three finalists will be selected based on their essay submission. Each finalist will be guaranteed a $1,500 award and then will create and submit a unique 1-2 minute video that expands on their essay in their own candid words, visuals, etc. The overall $3,500 scholarship winner will be chosen from these videos.
The scholarships are open to all students currently enrolled in high school regardless of test scores or grades.
Scholarship money will go directly towards secondary education, in the form of college or other qualified technical or professional program chosen by each winning student.
