Most of the awards for extracurricular activities are given to students that help community service or have entered contest and won a prize. The prize is generally money, and the high school can also give an amount of money to the winning student.
The scholarship for high school juniors that is given as an economical aid, does not necessarily involve only students with high scores. This amount of money is given to students that can no longer afford to be in high school due to financial problems. The aid can be in the form of money or in materials that the student needs in order to attend classes like note books or books and others. High schools also award high grade scores for every student. A student can receive such a scholarship if he has a strong academicals background, if his behavior is exemplary, and if he has achievements that are amazing for his age.
Other awards can include scholarships for high grades at different areas of study, such as math scholarship, native language scholarship and other such areas of study.
There are also other awards that can be given to students if they enter a special philanthropic program, like helping poor people or other such activities. These scholarships can be granted once, and their average amount is 2000$, or can be granted as a price with an average amount of 6000$ or can be granted every month with an average of 400$.
It depends on the high school policies and regulations, but also on how much money the high school can give. It is most common to find the economical aid scholarship in smaller high schools, and to find all the forms of this scholarship in larger high schools. A small high school can also associate with a scholarship foundation and provide money for juniors that have excellent scores or that have extraordinary achievements on their extracurricular activities.
