$1000 scholarship to students who’ve worked during their academic career
Previous Scholarship Winners
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.
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).
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. Please choose one of our core values and tell us about how you represent that core value in both your personal and professional life.
Essays will be reviewed and critiqued by our (blinded) selection committee. Improperly filling out the application, such as leaving fields blank, will result in immediate disqualification. Stronger essays will have a better chance of winning. If you are considered a semi-finalist, we will ask that you confirm your information. You will have one week to confirm. The winner(s) of the UniMover’s Working Student Scholarship will be announced within six months of the respective deadline. Additional information may need to be collected before the winner receives the scholarship.
