Are you interested in applying to unique scholarships? Tired of filling out boring application forms that place too much emphasis on achievement? Do you love twerking and hip hop? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Juicy J Scholarship might be a great match for you. This scholarship was created to make it easier for females who are Florida residents to afford a college education. This scholarship was created by Juicy J, whose recent duet with Katy Perry (Dark Horse) has proved to be a chart topper. In an effort to give back to his own community, he founded a scholarship contest with a $50,000 award as the grand prize.
This scholarship generated some controversy and confusion when it was originally released. This was due to the suggestions that it was a “twerking” scholarship. Although original tweets related to this initial criterion were deleted, some prospective applicants were confused. He later indicated that the scholarship would go to the person who demonstrated the highest level of financial need. The first winner, Zaire Holmes, did not twerk in her scholarship application submission. Thus, it is indeed possible to win the scholarship without twerkng.
In order to be eligible to apply for the Juicy J Scholarship Video contest, you must first meet a number of different criteria. First, all applicants must be citizens of the United States. Additionally, only students who are 25-years-old or younger and who are female will be considered. Students are required to attend an accredited institution (can be a junior college or traditional college or university). Lastly, the applicant must not be considered a minor in their state.
In order to apply for the scholarship, students should head to this website. As part of the application process, students are required to submit a video. There are relatively few requirements for what the video should contain, expect that it should reflect why you should be chosen to receive the $50,000 scholarship and the video cannot exceed 5 minutes in length. Each applicant can only enter the contest one time. The video also is not allowed to include any vulgar, offensive, or derogatory material.
Once the entries have been submitted, they will be available for members of the public to view and vote on. The submitted entries become property of the scholarship sponsor. You must agree that the video you are submitting was created only by you, without any outside help.
In the beginning of October, judges will begin to review the videos that have been most highly rated by members of the public. Only the top ten videos will be judged by a panel. These ten videos will be ranked on the following criteria: originality, creativity, musicality, appearance, and presentation. One of the videos will be chosen and this person will be the recipient of the $50,000 scholarship. This scholarship will be sent to your college or university and you will not receive any money directly. Additional information about this scholarship can be found here.
