Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University and has hopes of becoming a financial analyst.
In a tuition back scholarship, the winner receives money back for a course at the college they attend. In order to be eligible for this scholarship, participants have to be current undergraduate or graduate business students. As students begin college, they find that there is little financial assistance available to them. CKSF develops scholarships such as the Tuition Back program for current college students. The Tuition Back Scholarships cover specific courses relating to Nursing, Business, and Education. Quizzes are based on the core courses for each of these majors.
Unlike other scholarships that can take time away from your studies to complete, this scholarship is designed to help students review and practice for their final exams, making it easy for any college student to participate. Basically, studying for your regular exams would increase your chances of winning the scholarship. If the winner attends a school that participates in tuition back scholarships then they can receive up to $1,000 in tuition back money. CKSF is continually expanding the scholarships available in the tuition back program.
