AXA Achievement Scholarships

The AXA Foundation’s signature program, AXA AchievementSM, provides resources that help make college possible: access and advice.  AXA AchievementSM makes two types of scholarships available to the public.

AXA Achievement
SM National Scholarship

The AXA Achievementsm Scholarship in association with U.S. News & World Report   provides $670,000 in annual scholarships to young people throughout the nation.

Winners on the State and National levels

State Winners
Fifty-two winners – one from each state, the District of Colombia and Puerto Rico – are selected by our nonprofit partner, Scholarship America, to receive one-time scholarship awards of $10,000 each.

National Winners
From the pool of 52 state winners, ten are selected as national winners and earn an additional one-time scholarship of $15,000. This brings the top AXA Achievers total scholarship awards to $25,000 each. These top ten also receive a laptop computer and the offer of an internship with AXA.

Our scholarships winners are known as AXA Achievers. They are ethnically and economically diverse, but they share these qualities:

  • Ambition and drive
  • Determination to set and reach goals
  • Respect for self, family and community
  • Ability to succeed in college

Some of the remarkable accomplishments of our AXA Achievers include: setting up a food bank in their community; designing a curriculum to get kids interested in science; founding a nonprofit organization for young people that encourages community service and civic involvement.
