Eleanor B.
Eleanor B. from Hingham, MA is currently studying Marketing and Advertising at Syracuse University in New York. After graduating in 2022, Eleanor would like to work in the strategy department of an advertising agency. “ I chose strategy because it merges my analytical business degree with my more creative advertising degree in an exciting way.” In addition to school, Eleanor enjoys art and photography. In high school, she won an award from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and had her photos published in the Boson Globe. She is looking forward to combining her passion for art with her interest in business analytics to generate competitive advertising after school.

Our Scholarship

Here at UniMovers, we know that it’s hard and sometimes impossible to work your way through college AND graduate debt-free. That is why we want to help out the next generation of students by offering the UniMovers Working Student Scholarship, a scholarship for the working student. A portion of every move completed is donated to this scholarship. The number of awards available may vary, however, this scholarship will be awarded to at least one lucky individual per cycle who is attending college and has been employed at a part-time or full-time basis for at least one year. Applications will be accepted by current college students, and people returning to school. Applications from high schoolers will not be accepted.

UniMover’s Working Student Scholars will receive a $1000 scholarship. All funds will be sent directly to the winner’s school.

Eligibility Criteria

Applicants must be planning to attend college within one year of the award and must have worked at some point during their career as a student. The applicant is not required to have worked through the entirety of their career as a student. However, they must have been working for at least one year during which time they were a student and be currently employed. Applicants must be able to provide proof of employment upon request. This scholarship is only open to current college students and non-traditional students.

This is a semi-annual scholarship. Applicants must apply on or before December 15th of the current year. The application includes an essay (no more than 500 words).

Essay Prompt

Here at UniMovers, we feel a responsibility to our community to be more than a moving company. As a result, we base our company’s mission around our five core values.
