Open to: High school seniors and students enrolled at and attending either a two- or four-year college or university

Every year US Federal Contractor Registration, the world’s largest third-party government registration firm, gives away $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors and newly enrolled college students. US Federal Contractor Registration helps business owners complete the registrations required to serve as a government contractor. Without this registration, the business is unable to provide products or services to the government.

To apply for the $1,000 scholarship, candidates must submit a video (2-5 minutes long) of themselves answering the following question:

What are the benefits of working with the U.S. Government?

Candidates must keep in mind we are not asking about working for the U.S. government as an employee. We are asking about the private sector and public sector businesses come together to fulfill government contracts.
