HammockStandExpert external scholarship aims at helping young people that share our passion complete their education without accumulating a lot of debt in student loans. And we reward it to an individual that can share his/her traveling experiences without spending money.
Scholarship Program Topic
Our annual $1000 external scholarship always goes to a student that shares the best story on traveling without spending money. For this, you are free to tell us about any trip that you went for without using cash and your experiences.
We accept stories that are between 700 and 1000 words because we believe this is long enough for you to share your experiences in an interesting and detailed way. Also, it is important to make sure that the piece is 100% original which you can quickly ascertain with a plagiarism checker and that it is free of grammatical and spelling mistakes.
If your topic and story impress us the most from the many applications that we get you will receive the $1000 award. However, we do not send the cash to the students directly, and we instead channel it to the financial aid department of the winner’s college.
Our annual scholarship program is open to all students that complete high school and are just preparing to join higher education institutions. Also, it is open for those who are already in colleges and universities. However, to be eligible for our scholarship, those that are already in college should have a GPA of at least 2.5. Also, any students below the legal age (18 years) should attain consent from parents/guardians.
The deadline for applications for out external scholarship is 1st August every year (the current deadline is Aug 01, 2018). However, we also accept early applications and also recommend that students apply the earliest possible.
