Designed to be as inclusive as possible, ScholarSmarts is open to any student enrolled in the spring 2013 semester at any college, university, trade or technical school in the United States or Canada. The company also awarded five students with $1,000 scholarships during the fall 2012 semester.
Applications for a ScholarSmarts scholarship are in the form of essays, which answer one of the following questions: What link is there between a clutter-free workspace and increased productivity? How has self-storage improved your lifestyle?
Winning submissions will be chosen based on originality and creativity, but must meet three basic standards to be considered:
- All submissions must have a title.
- Essays are to be a minimum of 500 words in length.
- Essays must be predominantly comprised of unique content, with proper citation of any research material used.
Each student may enter only one application. Submissions should be sent via e-mail along with the applicant’s legal name, mailing address, telephone number and the name of the school to which he will enroll for the spring 2013 semester.
The deadline for essay submissions is 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 31. Winners will be announced March 1 via the StorageMart Facebook page and YouTube channel.
