Pursuing higher education is exciting, but it can also be intimidating, and we at Invitation Homes understand how important feeling happy and safe in your home can be.
DALLAS (PRWEB) September 30, 2019
For many students, higher education means being away from the place they call home to pursue their dreams. Invitation Homes is launching the 2nd Annual There’s No Place Like Home scholarship contest asking students what they take to college to make it feel like home.
The contest asks high school seniors, college students, and students pursuing higher education or a vocational program to submit a thoughtful 800-word essay about what they are taking to school to make it feel like home and why it is important to them.
The top four essays will be chosen and judged by an independent third-party panel. The winners will each receive $2,000 to use toward their education and will be featured on the Invitation Homes blog.
“Pursuing higher education is exciting, but it can also be intimidating, and we at Invitation Homes understand how important feeling happy and safe in your home can be,” said Dallas Tanner, president and chief executive officer of Invitation Homes. “We are once again encouraging students to share their stories about a special memento they take to college to help make that new environment feel like home.”
To qualify to enter, applicants must be enrolled in or accepted to an accredited college, university, or technical school. More details about contest eligibility requirements and guidelines can be found here.
Winners will be announced and notified by the end of the year. Deadline for entries is October 31, 2019 11:59 p.m. CT. One of the four scholarships will be awarded to an Invitation Homes resident.
