Apartment Guide Scholarship Program - Application Deadline Extended through April 12th

Posted By: Meagan Swingle on March 29, 2021

DEADLINE EXTENDED in Apartment Guide Scholarship Contest

Entries Now Being Accepted through April 12th For Two $2,500 Prizes

Acknowledging the challenge Americans face in paying for a college education, Apartment Guide announces the launch of its Student Scholarship Contest, in which two winners will each receive $2,500 to help offset education-related expenses. Prize money can be used to pay for housing, books, tuition, study-abroad or other education-related expenses for the upcoming Fall 2021 semester.

To qualify for entry, applicants must be 17 years of age; a U.S.



citizen or legally residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia; enrolled in or accepted as a fulltime student at an accredited college, university or technical school for the Fall 2021 semester; pursuing a bachelors or associate degree; and have a 2.5 minimum GPA.

Entrants are asked to submit a 500-600 word essay on the topic “How has coronavirus changed the way you think about home?”; the deadline for entry has been extended to April 12th at 11:59 pm ET.

Apartment Guide will narrow the field to 10 finalists, who will each be given two weeks to create a one-to-three minute video to accompany their essay. The finalists’ essays and companion videos will be posted for one month on ApartmentGuide.com and votes will be cast by the public. Based on a combination of public voting results and judging criteria, two winners will be selected. The two $2,500 winners will be featured on Apartment Guide’s Scholarship page, along with their essays and videos.

To enter the contest, visit the Apartment Guide college scholarship page, for an official entry form, contest description, deadlines and other information. The complete contest rules can be found here. No purchase is necessary to enter.
