College HELP Scholarship
About the Scholarship
The College HELP Scholarship is a scholarly competition for college students based on things they should know before they graduate college. As the title suggests, the Higher Education Life Preparation scholarship prepares college students for life after they graduate. The quiz topics are based on important facts such as finance, careers, etc.

How it Works
Participants must register with CKSF to take the scholarship quizzes. The Challenge Round quiz runs twice a year, September through December and January through April. A new quiz begins during the first week of every month. Scores from each quiz are added together for each participant and the top 25% of scorers will advance to the Championship Round. The highest scoring student from the Championship Round will receive a $500 scholarship.
To participate, you must register with the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation at www.cksf.org. For all CKSF scholarship quizzes, 500 points are awarded for each correct answer and one point is deducted for each second taken to complete a question. Results are available immediately to each participant and the overall ranking is available within three hours under the “Results” tab at www.cksf.org.
