The Express Auto Scholarship Program is Accepting Applications for 2019
Are you looking for a little bit of free money to help you attend a school of higher education? Do you have an interest in the Auto Transport Industry? Apply to our scholarship program! We are offering 3 scholarship prizes in the amounts of $1250, $750, and $500 to students who maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and write a compelling essay regarding the future of auto transport.
How To Apply
To apply for the scholarship, you will need to write an essay of no less than 1,000 words, describing what you believe will be the state of the auto transport industry in 2025.
Applications will be accepted until March 2019. Further information will be coming soon.
You can submit applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include your full name, contact information, and which school you will be attending in Fall 2019 when you submit your essay.
As this essay topic is speculative in nature, we will be looking for creativity above all else. Strong grammar, word choice, sentence fluency, and writing skills are a plus!
The topic can be about anything regarding the future of auto transportation, and can be as broad or as narrow as you desire. For instance, you could write about how you think auto transport trucks may improve in the next decade. Or you could write about the ramifications of new technologies as they pertain to car transport or about potential solutions to current logistical problems carriers face.
Note that your work must be original; entries will be checked for plagiarism and to make sure they are not posted anywhere else on the internet.
How is the Winner Determined?
The winners will be determined based on several criteria by our Scholarship Selection Committee. All essays will be posted on our website with proper credit to their authors. Winners will be published on our website as well under a separate category. We will contact winners via email and also post the information on the website.
Once you submit your essay, be patient. It will take time for us to read all submissions and determine a winner. If you win, we will let you know!
