Last year, we offered our first ever Shop Smart Scholarship to five deserving students who demonstrated extraordinary frugality, thriftiness and entrepreneurial spirit in their quest to make their college education affordable.
We were very impressed with the entries we received, and narrowing the field down to just five worthy recipients was no easy task. The experience also was extremely rewarding, and we’re excited to offer the Shop Smart Scholarship again this year!
Once again, we’ll be awarding $10,000 in scholarships to students who are going to extraordinary lengths to make their college experience affordable. Each of our five finalists will receive a $2,000 scholarship to help with education and living expenses for the 2013-2014 school year.
The application deadline is Sunday June 16, 2013. You can find complete details, including the scholarship application, eligibility requirements and information about previous scholarship winners, at the 2013 Shop Smart Scholarship page.
P.S. College students on a limited budget should also check out Stores with Student Discounts to save money at the places you shop every day.
