Highlight: Would you be interested in taking part in an opportunity that can help you with resume writing and corporate outplacement, as well as coaching and other career services? Well then, the Employment BOOST College Scholarship is where you should apply! This year-round scholarship program is dedicated to giving a financial boost to current grade 12 students immediately going on to college, as well as US students already in their first year of college. The mission of the organization itself (Employment Boost) is to help students obtain meaningful work and growth in their chosen careers. They have a thrilling offer of two quarterly $1000 scholarships, each of which can be applied to year-round: one year-round scholarship is for students in any major, or those undecided about their courses; the second year-round scholarship is for those students majoring in a STEM or business program. There are a few things you need to have before you apply to either year-round scholarship. You’ll need a minimum GPA of 3.6 and your letter of acceptance from the college you plan to attend — think of it as narrowing down the competition! Now all you need to do is write a quick 500-1000 word essay depending on which year-round scholarship you choose. There’s a poetry prompt for those in the non STEM and non business or undecided category. And there is a future of technology question for those pursuing STEM or business. With the rare opportunity of year-round submissions with no deadline, you can apply to either amazing, year-round scholarship with a tip-top essay anytime to ensure you don’t miss out on one of their quarterly draws!
