We also understand that school can be a significant expense and know how hard it can be for students and their families to make ends meet. Between housing, tuition, books, and school supplies, the cost of attending college or graduate school can easily rise into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.

In an effort to make things a little easier for students and their families, we are pleased to be offering a $1,500 scholarship to individuals who are currently attending or planning on attending college or graduate school in the near future.

Submission Deadline: March 31, 2017

Award Amount: $1,500.00

ESSAY TOPIC:

PEARLS ARE CLASSIFIED AS AN OLD FASHION JEWELRY ITEM. HOW WOULD YOU MARKET OR BRAND PEARLS TO MAKE THEM TRENDY AGAIN?

Out of the pool of applicants, we will choose five finalists. We will then post the five finalists’ essays on our blog and our social media pages.

I’M A FINALIST – NOW WHAT?

Now it’s your turn to share your hard work! The finalists will be responsible for promoting their entries within their social media networks – get your friends, family, and followers to like or share your essay for the best chance to win! The winner will be determined by the amount of social media “buzz” the winning essays generate. The finalist with the most Facebook “Likes” on their essay page wins! In order to be eligible to participate, applicants must simply be either currently enrolled in or actively applying to a college or graduate/professional program.
