Acknowledging the challenge Americans face in paying for a college education, Apartment Guide has announced the launch of its new College Scholarship Contest, in which two students 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 Spring 2019 semester.
Entrants are asked to submit a 500-600 word essay on the topic “What makes a home home?”; deadline for entry is October 31, at 11:59 pm ET.
Apartment Guide will narrow the field to 10 finalists, who will each be given two weeks to create a one-to-three minute video to accompany their essay. The finalists’ essays and companion videos will be posted for one month on ApartmentGuide.com and votes will be cast by the public. Based on a combination of public voting results and judging criteria, two winners will be selected. The two $2,500 winners will be featured on Apartment Guide’s Scholarship page, along with their essays and videos.
