Rent College Properties strongly believes in the social power of the internet. We also believe college students are highly competitive and look for opportunities to excel outside of the classroom, and in fact, some students might even be able to use this competition to gain college credit. Couple these two factors together and we have the makings of an intense scholarship competition
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) April 6, 2009
Today Rent College Properties, a new web-based rental property location service for college students, is asking college students a question: So you think you can sell? The college student who is able to sell the most memberships for Rent College Properties will win a $10,000 college scholarship. This competition is not based on essay submissions, interviews, where you grew up, what hand you write with, or any other obscure factor. Instead it is determined by your ability to sell! In this economy, who couldn't use more money for college? There is a catch though: individuals who finish the competition within the top ten will be interviewed for a position within Rent College Properties!
The scholarship competition will start April 6, 2009 and will conclude July 31, 2009. Rob Freidhoff, founder of Rent College Properties, shared that during the competition students will have access to email templates, video tutorials, and other sales tools created to help participants be successful in the competition. Final standings will be determined based on the number of total points accumulated during the competition. To get more details on the specifics of the competition, go to rentcollegeproperties.com. To enter the competition students must create a free renter account and then sign-up for the Rent College Properties Scholarship Competition.
Rent College Properties officially launched March 30, 2009 at Grand Valley State University, located in Allendale, Michigan. The Rent College Properties site is simple to use and feature rich. "The initial feedback we have been receiving to date has been overwhelmingly positive from students and landlords alike," according to Freidhoff. New features will be coming online in the next few weeks as more feedback and discussions are had with landlords and students.
Freidhoff cited two points when asked why his company was offering out this college scholarship competition. "Rent College Properties strongly believes in the social power of the internet. We also believe college students are highly competitive and look for opportunities to excel outside of the classroom, and in fact, some students might even be able to use this competition to gain college credit. Couple these two factors together and we have the makings of an intense scholarship competition". Earning a $10,000 scholarship while landing a job at the same time sounds like a great way to spend the summer.
