Unfinished Man $500 Scholarship (ID 3387)
- Start Date:
- Here at UnfinishedMan, we know the importance of school and also understand the obstacles that face a lot of students worldwide. Students are greeted with a constant barrage of expenses such as monthly student lodging, food budget, travel fares, book costs, and in most places, even the actual fees for the courses each student wants to take; it can be a tough road ahead financially. It can be especially difficult to manage all these bills and monetary restrictions when you are on your own. The student life can have many unexpected turns and twists, and it is always a good idea to have some funding saved up in case life throws a curve ball at your direction. Here at our humble website, we would like to offer a small gesture of assistance and appreciation for our student readers. Because after all, when you are struggling with the pressures and demands of student life, sometimes you just need is a small break: a helping hand to make your day, week, or even semester, a little bit easier to go through.
We are proud to open an annual essay writing contest for our readers and their loved ones, with the main goal of assisting students in their expenses wherever they may be. Simply create an essay and you may get the chance to win a 500 USD Scholarship for any school of your choice!
The challenge we are offering is a simple one.
