Common Knowledge Scholarship
Developed and administered at Nova
Southeastern University, the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF)
awards scholarships to students through Internet-based quiz competitions.
CKSF reward students for demonstrating what they know. There is no essay
writing or long applications to complete. Students receive scholarship
awards based on common knowledge and basic education curricula. The
primary focus is to have an objective competition that rewards students
who have well-rounded, practical knowledge, and not necessarily those with
the highest academic standing. There are several competitions (quizzes)
that students can enter online. Please read the rules and information
carefully before entering these competitions. Some competitions are for
"teams" of students from a particular high school while other
competitions can be entered by individual students. You may want to
explore the entire website before you enter.
