Nov. 1 marks the official deadline for the Inside Self-Storage Scholarship Program for 2007. Interested parties are encouraged to apply for one of five $2,000 grants, good toward tuition at any accredited college or university.
The ISS Scholarship Program, initiated in 2001, encourages the educational pursuits of students closely affiliated with self-storage. Entrants are required to work in the industry or have immediate family members employed by self-storage or related companies. The scholarship funds, however, can be used to study any designated field.
To qualify, applicants must be at least 17 years of age; show proof of at least one-year affiliation with the self-storage industry; and plan to attend a college or university in 2007. Only one entry per family will be accepted.
Applications must be received no later than Nov. 1. They may be submitted via fax to 480.281.6038; by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by mail to Inside Self-Storage Scholarship Program, P.O. Box 40079, Phoenix, AZ 85067-0079. All submissions should be typed or very clearly printed.
The scholarship committee will select winners by Dec. 31. All recipients will be notified in writing by Jan. 30. A formal announcement will be made at the Inside Self-Storage Expo in Las Vegas, Feb. 20-23, at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
