Education Scholarship

About the Scholarship


The Education Scholarship was developed to help students prepare for exams and earn some of their tuition back in the process. The topic for this scholarship is Human Development. The multiple choice quizzes were written to align with commonly used college level text books. Quiz questions are based on straight forward core concepts that students learn in introductory classes.
