Davie, Florida (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
The Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF), today announced the start of its Academic Review Scholarships, which are now available online and accessible until December 4. These online, quiz-based scholarship opportunities are specific to college level nursing, business and education students and are designed to help students earn scholarship money while reviewing for exams.
The college scholarship program was developed to help students prepare for exams by measuring what they have learned in specific classes. The scholarship utilizes multiple-choice quizzes created from textbooks commonly used in college level courses for the following majors and areas of study: Nursing - Anatomy and Physiology, Business - Principles of Management and Education - Principles of Education.
“The quiz questions are based on core concepts that students learn in introductory classes,” says Daryl Hulce, president of CKSF. “We want to reward students for their performance and make scholarship money accessible to more students, based on their ‘common knowledge’ so there are no essays or long applications like traditional scholarships.”
The Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation offers a wide range of scholarships each year to both high school and college students. To participate, students must register with the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation at http://www.cksf.org. For all CKSF scholarship quizzes, 500 points are awarded for each correct answer and one point is deducted for each second taken to complete the quiz. The top twenty-five per cent are advanced to the Championship Round where the high scoring student wins and can use the scholarship money at the school of their choice. One $500 scholarship is awarded for first place overall and one $500 scholarship is awarded to the highest scoring Nova Southeastern University student for each major, business, nursing and education.
Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation’s mission is to create scholarly (educational) and scholarship (financial) opportunities in which participants of all levels have a fair and equal chance to participate and be successful. Developed and administered at Nova Southeastern University through the Fischler School of Education, the CKSF awards scholarships through the use of internet-based quiz competitions. Since its first scholarship program in 2000, CKSF has developed a wide variety of scholarship and academic enrichment programs for students of all ages. CKSF administers new contests each month and has awarded more than $300,000 in scholarships to more than 700 students.
