The Herbert Hoover Uncommon Student Award is a $5,000 scholarship program for Iowa high school juniors. The program annually identifies and honors up to 15 Iowa high school juniors who propose and then accomplish a project of their own choosing and design. Grades, test scores, essays and financial need are not evaluated.
Each of the 15 finalists will receive a $1,500 cash award at the completion of the program. Three of those could earn an additional $5,000 scholarship each, for a total of $6,500! Check the links below to learn more about choosing a project and deadlines.
