College Peas Student Standout College Scholarship is for the student who has something special that makes them different from their peers. We recommend engaging in a special kind of activity – a Non-Teenager Activity or NTA. An NTA is, quite simply, any activity that other teenagers don’t typically do. By choosing an NTA you will differentiate yourself in a way that will have a very positive impact on your chances of getting into college. We are always looking for good examples of NTA’s and if you have one, you have a shot at this scholarship.
