If you are a college student (or college bound) and looking for ways to pay for the costs of attending your school, EK Insurance wants to help you. One amazing video essay will be chosen as the winner and the student will be awarded $500 for college. To apply for the EK Insurance Scholarship, pick your topic by choosing from one of the three topics to record about these Video Essay Topics: 1) Daycare/Childcare Insurance. If I run an in-home or commercial daycare, why do I need business insurance and what coverages should I have to protect myself? 2) Flood Insurance. Most people and business don't purchase flood insurance unless their mortgage company require it. Should individuals and business buy flood insurance on their own without being required by their loan company, and why? 3) Earthquake Insurance. Standard homeowners insurance and commercial property insurance do not pay for any damage from earthquakes. Even though earthquakes present a serious threat in several states, many people and business do not buy this insurance coverage–why should they? Applicants must be currently enrolled at an accredited 2-year college or 4-year university during the 2019-2020 academic year. Students of all majors are encouraged to apply. One student will be selected to receive $500 in scholarship funds based on their video essay submission. Scholarship funds must be used to pay for qualified expenses, including tuition, books and on-campus room and board for the 2019-2020 academic year. To enter, applicants are encouraged to send their video submission to using the form on EK Insurance's Scholarship page, along with their name, college or university and expected year of graduation. The deadline for submissions is 12/30/18. The winner will be notified individually and announced on or around 2/15/19.
