Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Foreclosure.com, which has been inundated with more than 6,000 submissions to date, today reminded undergraduate college students nationwide that the deadline to submit essays for its 2013 scholarship program is set to expire in 30 days (Dec. 15, 2013).

The nation’s No. 1-ranked distressed real estate authority encourages all students (high school students, graduate students and law students are excluded), regardless of major, to apply for the scholarships, which total $9,000 and are divided among five qualified, winning entrants.

The Foreclosure.com Scholarship Program 2013 essay topic is as follows:

“You've been tasked with analyzing two foreclosure properties to determine which one is a better investment. Many factors come into play, including cost, location, renovations (if necessary/desired) and local market conditions, among others. The goal is to maximize profit, whether it is a buy, hold or flip strategy over the short- and/or long-term. Please select a property, provide reasons that support the decision, detail your investment strategy, describe all that you would do (improvements, rehab, etc.) and how it would impact your potential bottom line."

Entries are required to be original and be at least 800 words in length and no more than 2,000. Qualified students must visit the Foreclosure.com scholarship page, fill out the entry form and agree to the scholarship rules to enter the contest.

"With college tuition costs rising, this scholarship has been a huge help for our annual winners,” said Foreclosure.com Vice President James Houston. “We have already started to review essays from the thousands of submissions that have poured in from across the United States. And we look forward to the many more that will undoubtedly flood our website as the deadline looms."

The $5,000 grand prize-winner will be selected by Foreclosure.com and its panel of third-party judges and announced prior to the conclusion Q1 2014. The four runners up will also be selected and announced during that time and each receive $1,000 grants. In addition, all scholarship winners will have their essays featured on Foreclosure.com’s scholarship page.

Foreclosure.com introduced its scholarship program in 2009. Since that time, the company has awarded (or will soon award) 20 deserving college students throughout the United States with a total of $36,000 in scholarship money.
