Various Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation

 

 

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. http://www.cksf.org/index.cfm?Page=
