The PB&J scholarship was founded by Traven Watase who was from Farrington High School in Hawaii.  As a high school student, he was determined to go to college, but his grades and test scores were low, so he was rejected a lot.  He decided that he wanted to help students like him with financial assistance, so he ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches during his first year of college to fund this scholarship.  Awards range from $500 to $1,000.  Students must complete the online application and submit a transcript and letter of recommendation.  Visit PB&J Scholarship for more information and to apply online.
