eINSURE, the Internet’s top insurance comparison and quote provider, is proud to announce the creation of the eINSURE Your Future Scholarship Program, a new $1000 college scholarship program open to qualified students of all majors and areas of study. Candidates will be awarded this cash scholarship based on their academic achievements, community involvement, and ability to share visions of the future based on a submitted writing sample.
Eligible candidates must be currently enrolled as freshmen or sophomores at an accredited university in the United States or plan to enroll by the end of 2014. Candidates must be at least 17 years of age and carry a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher.
To apply for this scholarship, candidates should submit by March 31, 2014, a writing sample that addresses the following prompt:
Use at least one of the guiding questions below to describe how you will benefit other individuals, your community, or the world in the next 10 years given your field of study.
1. How will the adoption of new technology in your industry improve your interaction with stakeholders?
2. How do you envision your chosen profession will tackle today's issues in the future?
Submitted essays should be no longer than 800 words and include a cover letter of 100 words or fewer that gives a summary of the candidate’s achievements, including organizations they participate in, academic honors they have received, and other information, such as hobbies and interests.
Submissions should be sent to scholarship(at)einsure(dot)com by March 31, 2014, and include current transcripts and, if applicable, a letter of acceptance from the college the candidate will be attending in 2014. The winner will be announced on April 30, 2014.
On why a scholarship was created Dave Thompson, President and CEO of eINSURE, explains “America’s future opportunities rely on forward thinking people courageous enough to act. There is no question that our universities are where you will find these game-changers. We hope other companies follow our lead and take out similar insurance policies for America’s future.”
Thompson founded eINSURE in 1992, when the Internet was in its infancy. Since then, eINSURE and its online insurance quote comparison marketplace, einsurance.com, have been helping businesses and consumers understand the benefits of comprehensive insurance. Today, eINSURE is the trusted leader in matching consumers with the right insurance products.
That company vision is reflected in the new eINSURE Your Future Scholarship Program, helping tomorrow’s leaders fully realize their potential. Visit http://www.einsurance.com/scholarship/ for more information about the eINSURE Your Future Scholarship Program.
