At The Scholarship System, one of our core beliefs is to avoid student loan debt or limit it to the lowest amount possible. While sometimes it can be inevitable, we always stress that there are two sides to graduating debt-free: reducing the amount of money needed and earning debt-free money to cover what you do need.
This scholarship opportunity was designed to help with the latter part of the equation, while challenging students to consider the importance of limiting student loan debt and their plan-of-action to do so.
We’re proud to announce our 3rd annual scholarship recipients. There were two separate scholarships available:
- The Scholarship System Annual Scholarship for Non-Members
- The Scholarship System Annual Scholarship for Course Members Only
With these scholarships, we hope to reward students who are actively working towards a debt-free education. Even if you have had to borrow for college, we wanted to hear plans, goals, and a thought-process on succeeding in college while limiting student debt as much as possible.
The winner of the The Scholarship System 3rd Annual Scholarship for Non-Members is Yasmene Rivera. For our Members-Only Scholarship, we awarded Ian Joy, Rachel Ring, and Andy Song.
We are fortunate for the opportunity to give back to the community and award 4 students with scholarships for the 2018-2019 school year and hope to give out even more next year!
Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who submitted an application.
