Working Student Scholarship
$ 1,000 scholarship to students who have been employed during their academic collegiate career
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 students who are working to pay for their schooling.
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 qualified individual per cycle who is attending college and has been employed on a part-time or full-time basis for at least one year. Applications are limited to current college students, and people returning to school. Applications from high school students will not be accepted.
UniMover’s Working Student Scholars will receive a $1,000 scholarship. All funds will be sent directly to the winner’s school.
Applicants must be planning to attend college within one year of the award application deadline and must have been employed at some point during their collegiate studies. The applicant is not required to have worked through the entirety of their academic career. However, they must have been working for at least one year during which time they were a student and are currently employed. Applicants must be able to provide proof of employment upon request.
This is an annual scholarship. Applicants must apply on or before December 15th of the current year.
