The scholarships offered by Best Buy are intended for high school students in grades 9 through 12, who are distinguished with extraordinary personal skills and academic achievements.
Best Buy Scholarship program: Eligibility for the Best Buy Scholarship
In terms of eligibility, all high school students in grades 9-12, who live in Puerto Rico and the United States and demonstrate exceptional academic achievements, as well as work experience, school activities and community service, are eligible to submit their Best Buy scholarship application. Students who have been attending home school are also eligible for the program.
The application for this program will be available online at Best Buy Scholarship Application starting late December, as the Best Buy scholarship 2013 application period is now over. The application for the scholarship cannot be obtained from Best Buy Stores.
BestBuy scholarship information: application deadline and scholarship amount
The deadline for the scholarship is February of each year, meaning the Best Buy 2013 scholarship was due in February 2013. The applicants are advised not to wait until the last days of the application period because the high online traffic during those days may prevent them from using the online service. Late applications are not accepted for Best Buy scholarship consideration.
The program offers a one-year, non-renewable award of $1000. The foundation will award 1100 scholarships for 2014, most of them being intended for high school seniors. The award is meant to be used for a single year of full-time college studies at an accredited 4-year or 2-year program in a technical/vocational school, university or college in Puerto Rico or the United States. The winners of the scholarship will receive their checks in their homes, which means that they can use the money to cover their tuition expenses in the fall term right after they graduate from high school.
