Scholarship for students with self employment experience

June 15, 2017 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Have you ever earned money as a contractor or a small business owner? If so, this scholarship opportunity is for you.

If you are a qualifying student (see “who can apply” section below), you may submit a 750 to 1,500 word essay describing how your experience working for yourself as either a contractor or small business owner has impacted your view of education and your future. The winning application will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Why are we specifically rewarding this kind of experience?

Self employment teaches people lessons of independence and accountability that can’t be found through any other experience. In the beginning, it often doesn’t pay as well as traditional employment, but we believe that the lessons taught by the self employment experience will pay dividends in both education and perspective long after the work or business concludes. Therefore, we would like to reward students that choose to take this unconventional path and encourage more to follow in their footsteps.

Who can apply?

Any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a degree program at any accredited American College, University or Trade School with self employment experience may apply. For purposes of this scholarship, self employment experience simply means that you or a business you started were paid directly for your work. Here are some examples of common types of self employment:

  • Mowing lawns for neighbors
  • Tutoring students
  • Babysitting services for families
  • Hanging Christmas lights for neighbors
  • Starting a business of any kind

Payment for work received from an employer is not self-employment. This includes work compensated in the form of tips. Here are some examples of employment that do not qualify:

  • Waiting tables for a restaurant
  • Bar tending
  • Any salaried job

Only one submission per student is allowed.

How to apply?

Submit your 750 to 1,500 word essay as a Microsoft Word attachment to scholarship@choosewhat.com. Use the subject line “ChooseWhat Scholarship Application” Do not put the essay directly in the email- only attached essays will be accepted. In the email, please include the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Name of school
  • Anticipated Major
  • Expected Graduation Date
  • Type and dates of self employment (eg: Lawn maintenance, May 2012- September 2012)

Deadlines?

This scholarship will be awarded during the Fall and Spring semesters beginning with Fall 2016.

  • Fall applications are accepted from April 2nd through November 1st. The winner will be announced November 15th.
  • Spring applications are accepted from November 2nd through April 1st. The winner will be announced April 15th.

How Will the Winner Be Chosen?

ChooseWhat Founder, Leo Welder, will select the winning application. The winner will be largely based on the relevance of the examples used to demonstrate lessons learned and the quality of the writing.

What Will the Winner Receive?

The student with self employment experience submitting the best essay will receive a $1,000 scholarship.
