LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) January 08, 2018
The new year is filled with hope and high expectations for the future for college students around the country. But with escalating fees for tuition, books, and housing, dreams of obtaining a degree can seem daunting at best. Today’s average college graduate enters the workforce with approximately $37,000 in student debt, according to Forbes.com.
Chapel of the Flowers, famous for new beginnings as the top-rated wedding chapel in Las Vegas, today announced a scholarship program in 2018 that will help four deserving college students with their new educational beginnings and expenses. Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded on February 14, 2018, with the additional two $1,000 scholarships to be awarded on August 15, 2018.
The application process is simple: students currently enrolled in college will need to write a 500-word personal essay about educational goals and plans following graduation, and submit the application via the Chapel of the Flowers College Scholarship web landing page, found at https://www.littlechapel.com/scholarship. To be eligible, student must be at least 18 years of age, and currently enrolled in an accredited college in the United States.
Deadlines for applications are January 31, 2018 for one of two scholarships to be awarded on February 14, 2018, and July 31, 2018 for one of two scholarships to be awarded on August 15, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be notified via email.
“It is my hope that with this Chapel of the Flowers scholarship program, we’ll help four deserving students offset the high cost of attending college,” said Donne Kerestic, CEO of Chapel of the Flowers. “Our scholarship program is unique in that applicants need not be working towards a major in the wedding industry, and they can be attending a community college or a four-year university. We are asking applicants currently enrolled in an accredited college to submit a 500-word essay, and tell us about their educational and career goals. We’ll be looking for essays that include the individual’s passion, tenacity, and reason for choosing their major and career field. Our team is excited to award the scholarships and help four students with their college expenses.”
