$CHOLARSHIP$ is a monthly column in which we post scholarship offers that we hear about.
I’m working with Coastal, an online eyewear retailer for glasses, contact lenses, and sunglasses. Coastal recognizes the significant value of an undergraduate education and we are truly passionate about giving back to students.
I wanted to reach out because I thought that you and your students would be interested in a scholarship opportunity that Coastal is offering. This scholarship is available to any undergraduate student currently enrolled in any accredited course for the 2017/2018 and/or 2018/2019 school year in the U.S.
The Coastal scholarship is worth $5,000 and is to be used towards the entrant’s tuition and expenses related to pursuing his/her education. This scholarship is offered to any full-time students with a cumulative GPA of 3.3.
The Essay Question is:
Upon graduation, how do you plan to use your education to make a positive difference in the world?
Upload your 500-600 word essay answering the question below and complete the entry form. PDF format is preferred for the essay. Please include your name, email, and phone number at the top of the first page or in the document header. All entries must be completed and uploaded in their entirety on or before 11:59:59 a.m. EDT on July 1 2018 to be eligible.
The judging will be based on three equally weighted categories: (a) agreement that the Essay effectively answers the question; (b) creativity and uniqueness of subject matter of Essay; (c) how well written the Essay is.
There are also a few other questions to answer, such as how many hours a day you spend at a computer screen, if you play sports, and if you wear contacts or glasses.
