Our Scholarship Offer
For young people, higher education plays a crucial role in entering the job market and growing in a certain career path. Unfortunately, the costs associated with being enrolled at a good university make it difficult for them to finish their studies. Student dropout rates are becoming increasingly high, thus creating a worrying educational gap for the future generations.
Taking all of this into consideration, we’ve decided to award one student a $1,000 scholarship that will go towards their tuition fees.
If you wish to apply for our scholarship and you have an affinity towards writing, then we invite you to send us an essay of 500-750 words on the following topic:
- The U.S. unemployment rate rose to 4.8% in January 2017. What do you think are the three biggest challenges in today’s job market and why?
The evaluation of this essay will be done based on originality, research, depth of insights, as well as writing style.
Our $1,000 scholarship is available for all undergraduate and graduate students, who are currently enrolled at an accredited United States institution.
