Around the country, pools are closing, schools are opening, and the days are getting shorter. And while the end of summer may feel like a letdown, there are plenty of things to look forward to in the months ahead. For example, as of yesterday, insureon’s Small Business, Big Impact scholarship is once again open for submissions.
That’s right: any undergraduate student who will be enrolled fulltime for the spring 2015 semester can enter to win a $2,500 scholarship to help pay college expenses. We launched the scholarship last semester and are excited to restart it.
How Do You Win an insureon Small Business, Big Impact Scholarship?
Every semester, two students win $2,500 scholarships from insureon through the Small Business, Big Impact program. Here’s how you can be eligible:
- Write a 500- to 1,000-word essay about how a small business has impacted your life.
- Visit our scholarship application page, and fill out the application form.
- Upload your essay in the box provided.
We accept entries until November 3, 2014. After that, we’ll send the essays to our panel of judges to pick two winners. We’ll announce the winners by December 5, 2014, and the two lucky students will receive their scholarship money in time for spring semester.
Tips for Submitting Your Scholarship Application
Before submitting your application, make sure you meet all eligibility requirements (they’re listed at the “official rules” link on the scholarship page). And remember: this is an essay contest, so spend some time reading over your work before you hit “submit.”
We’re looking for thoughtful accounts of how a small business impacted your life, so your insight and reflection on your experience is as important as the experience itself.
