If my university hadn’t provided me with assistance, I wouldn’t be where I am today. They helped me pay for school and I owe much of my career to a work-study job that I had at St. Edward’s in Austin, TX.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 19, 2016
Official Coupon Code is thrilled to announce its inaugural $3,000 scholarship and search for a student with exceptional qualifications.
Those qualifications? A hunger for travel, passion for volunteerism, or fondness for great quotes. Not required? A minimum GPA or standardized test score.
Unlike traditional scholarships which focus heavily on grades, athletics or financial need, this is open to any student in the US or Puerto Rico who will be attending a college, university or vocational-technical school full-time in the 2016-2017 school year.
Antonella Pisani, Official Coupon Code’s CEO/Founder says, “If my university hadn’t provided me with assistance, I wouldn’t be where I am today. They helped me pay for school and I owe much of my career to a work-study job that I had at St. Edward’s in Austin, TX. It’s now my turn to pay it forward and we wanted to cast as wide a net as possible to find a deserving student.”
Selection of a winner will be based on responses to three questions which will give Official Coupon Code’s leadership team insight into the applicant’s areas of passion. The questions cover areas such as volunteering, travel, quotes and inspirational teachers.
To apply, students must fill out the application online at: https://www.officialcouponcode.com/scholarship-application/
Admittedly having spent a bit more time surfing than studying in her early years, Antonella says that she wanted to find a student who might have a similar profile. “Two teachers helped me turn my areas of passion into a career; one in high school and one in college. The questions asked in the application about volunteering and quotes are a nod to them. We’ve also included a question about their favorite teacher so that we can recognize some of the great teachers in our country, as well.”
Official Coupon Code’s beta site (http://www.officialcouponcode.com) launched in the US in March and features official coupons, codes and sales from major retailers, as well as thousands of printable grocery coupons.
