Discover Your Aptitudes Scholarship
Aptitudes are the talents you are born with.  Everybody has a distinct set of aptitudes.  Finding a career that uses your set of aptitudes is the basis for a satisfying and fulfilling life of work.  This scholarship pays for testing to discover your aptitudes at the Johnson O'Connor Research Foundation in Seattle.  
The testing is one day of performing various tests followed by a consultation the next day to discuss your aptitudes and the careers that use those aptitudes.  This self-knowledge is helpful for choosing a career path whether technical training or a college degree program.  For more information, visit
