The "What Drives You?" scholarship program is open to all teen drivers as well as students enrolled in drivers ed in the Treasure Valley area high schools.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Finalists are selected based on their essay submission. Finalists are then required to submit a short 1-2 minute video that expands on the essay they submitted and then the overall winner is selected.
Karina's drive is to study biomedical engineering to help advance medical equipment to give people a better life. Jenny's drive is to become a doctor and help make medical care more affordable for underserved communities. Devonne is driven by technology and to work as a web developer.
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.
