Spokane, WA (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
PJP Insurance Services Inc. is offering a new educational scholarship for graduating high school seniors who have family ties to active duty military personnel, and who have been impacted by the loss of a parent. This scholarship is available to any graduating senior within the United States. The scholarship will be awarded annually with recipients chosen based on their essay submissions. PJP Insurance Services Inc. decided to offer this scholarship because they understand the financial difficulty that can accompany the loss of a parent.
The new hardship scholarship is designed to help seniors further their education in an accredited institution such as a college, university, or vocational school setting. PJP Insurance Services Inc. plans to make the $1000 scholarship an annual award that will be paid directly to the institution of higher learning. Aside from the general eligibility criteria, seniors can be considered by simply writing an essay about their experiences as a result of losing one of their parents. Candidates will be judged solely on the content of their essay that discusses one of three optional topics.
“The parent doesn’t have to have died during active duty military service, or even be the parent who served active duty military service,” said Robert Piubeni of PJP Insurance Services Inc. “Losing a parent is losing a parent, and that loss can create a financial hardship.”
Part of the general eligibility requirements for this scholarship is that at least one parent of the applicant has served as active duty military personnel sometime between September 11, 2001 and the date of application for the scholarship. Piubeni made this requirement because he has first-hand experience as a child of a military family.
PJP Insurance Services Inc. appreciates the service that members of the United States military provide to their country. “This is just one small way that we can give back to those that have given of themselves so selflessly,” Piubeni said.
