Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank will award up to 40 $1,000 Internet scholarships for the 2009-2010 academic year, ten more than in previous years. In addition, the program is now open to currently enrolled college students, rather than just graduating high school seniors.
The application and further information is available here. Deadline for applying is March 31, 2010. Scholarship awards for the past 13 years have totaled more than $350,000.

They must also be a United States citizen or permanent resident alien, and be enrolled by September 2010. Scholarship recipients will be notified of their selection during the spring of 2010.
