Time is running out, undergraduate students encouraged to submit ‘presidential election’ essays soon to earn a share of $9,000 before it’s too late

Housing, in general, and the foreclosure crisis, in particular, have been alarmingly absent from the presidential candidates’ discussions. The good news is that we’ve received literally thousands of passionate entries about this important issue.

Foreclosure.com today reminded college students nationwide who are enrolled in undergraduate programs that the deadline to submit essays for its 2012 scholarship program is less than one month away (Dec. 1, 2012).

Foreclosure.com 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 2012 essay topic is as follows:

“What creative solutions, programs and/or initiatives to stimulate the United States housing market, as well as to turn the foreclosure tide, must a presidential candidate outline/promise to earn your vote? Feel free to include your very own original stimulus plan and/or ideas in your response, which can also be used to enhance existing platforms from candidates and/or other influential thought leaders.”

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.
