Are you in martial arts (karate, tae kwon do, aikido, and others) in high school? Now you can begin earning college scholarships for your participation in martial arts as early as the 9th grade, even if you don't plan to pursue it in college. Syracuse University, Butler University, Augustana College and 257 other colleges offer up to $6,000 in scholarships for every year of martial arts. Plus, if you're in a leadership role, you may be eligible for an extra scholarship of up to $3,375 per year!

Unlike other scholarships for martial arts members, micro-scholarships don't involve an application, essay, or selection process. They are awarded in your aid package if you enroll at that college.
