Between the costs of tuition, fees, books, supplies, and living expenses, students are often faced with taking out large student loans in order to fund their education which can take years to pay back.
We believe that a good education is a valuable investment for the future and that financial limitations should not be a barrier to achieving that goal. To that end, we are pleased to provide financial assistance for students who are currently attending or are planning to attend college or graduate school.
How do I apply?
In order to apply for the scholarship, students should submit an essay between 500 and 1,000 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. The essay must address the following topic:
The United States experiences millions of car accidents and other motor vehicle accidents every year, many resulting in serious injuries to the drivers and their passengers as a result of texting whilst driving.
Write an essay describing how to improve the awareness of the dangers of texting to younger drivers, and how you plan to educate the larger public on these dangers.
Please write your essay in a 12-point font, double spaced, and submit your essay either as a Microsoft Word document or as a PDF file.
In addition to your essay, please write a brief paragraph describing the school program you are attending or are planning to attend. The scholarship is open to students pursuing all degrees or majors in any field.
The selection process?
Once all submissions have been received, we will select three finalists based on the content of the essays. We will post the finalists on our website and on our social media pages.
