SCHOLARSHIP PROFILE

ValuePenguin/ValuePenguin Scholarship

The cost of education in the U.S. is on the rise. In addition, the National Center for Education Statistics reports that only 12.8% of undergraduate students receive private grants. These facts illustrate how difficult it is for many students across the nation to afford basic necessities, such as textbooks and transportation -- let alone tuition. In our coverage of personal finance, we have discovered how these issues have far reaching effects on an individual's financial well being. Oftentimes, they continue to be a burden well after graduation. That is why ValuePenguin is offering a $2,000 scholarship to eligible undergraduate students in the U.S. To be considered for the scholarship, submit a 500 to 750 word response (for a total word count of 1,000 to 1,500) to each of the following two questions: 1) Students encounter financial pitfalls of all types while attending colleges and universities. Explain a situation in which you spent too much (or not enough) money on a student expense and explain a creative solution you would share with future students. This could be something you did on your own or as part of a group. 2) How did you choose your college and/or major? Submit your responses to scholarships@valuepenguin.com along with the following information: Name School you are attending Expected graduation date Major and career goal E-mail address Phone number A picture of you Whether or not you are a first-generation college student Your responses can be included in the body of the e-mail or attached as a PDF or Word document (.doc, .docx).
