About the Scholarship Program
AAA Platte is dedicated to helping students reach their goals regardless of challenges. For this reason, AAA Platte created two scholarship opportunities to help deserving students achieve their potential.
Scholarship Application Format
The application should be in the format of a 200-500-word essay explaining where the student is coming from, the hardships faced, and how they are overcoming said hardships.
All scholarship applications will be evaluated by a small panel of at AAA Platte team members. Once the AAA Platte team narrows down the applicants to a final three, there will be an interview process in person or via video chat to determine the scholarship winner.
The scholarship is open to high school juniors and seniors, as well as, current higher education students.
The Scholarship Types:
AAA Platte Financial Need Scholarship - $1,500
The financial need scholarship is open to students who have experienced financial hardships in life. The essay should explain why the applicant deserves the scholarship over other applicants – how they will use the financial assistance to better themselves.
The panel will evaluate previous tax forms or other proof of financial hardship along with the essay.
AAA Platte Military Family Scholarship - $1,500
The military family scholarship is open to students with a mother, father, or grandparent serving active duty in the military. The essay should explain the student’s relationship with the active military family member and how the scholarship would help them reach their potential.
