In addition to specific program requirements, the applicant must demonstrate ambition and self-drive as evidenced by outstanding achievement in an activity in school, the community or the workplace. Primary consideration will be given to the applicant's demonstrated achievement in a non-academic area as reported by the applicant and supported by the appraisal completed by an adult who is not related to the applicant. Consideration will also be given to other extracurricular activities in school and community, work experience, and the applicant's academic record over the past four years. Selection of recipients is made by the administrator of the program, Scholarship America, a national nonprofit student aid and educational support organization. The AXA Foundation may participate in the selection of recipients for the national awards. Selection will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, gender, national origin or disability. Consideration will be given to select a diverse group of recipients. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for all AXA-sponsored scholarships, but a student may only receive one AXA-sponsored scholarship.
