Scholarship Description

The First Freedom Student Competition is a national essay contest, offering high-school students an opportunity to compete for a $3,000, $1,500 and $750 award, as they examine religious freedom, its history, current importance, and relevance in their lives. The competition is open to students in the United States and U.S. territories, and to American schools and American home-schooled students worldwide. We invite 9th - 12th grade students at all levels of academic placement to participate.

The competition is open to public, private and parochial school students and to home-schooled and distance-learning students living in:

* The United States of America;
* The District of Columbia; and
* U.S. territories.

The competition is also open to:

* American students living outside of the United States;
* Non-American students attending American and international schools outside of the United States;
* Foreign-exchange students studying in the United States;
* Legal aliens and legal visitors studying in the United States;
* All students participating in dual enrollment programs, which combine classes for a high-school diploma and college credit, whether studying on a high school or college campus; and
* American GED-program students, 20 years of age and younger.
