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 is March 23, at 11:59 pm ET.
Applications are being accepted now at the scholarship's web site.
