It seems to me it’s becoming more frequent for the younger generation to lose hope in their future. After the global financial crisis of 2007 and its consequent recession, the new generation seems to think that education is no longer important, and degrees aren’t worth the effort. I have a daughter that feels this way and it saddens me to think that other mother’s have sons and daughters who have lost hope in the system of education.
I belong to the luckier generation of “Baby Boomers”and I know what hard work means, and how it can be rewarding. I remember my yesterday’s dreams and I could realise them. Today I have a dream: I want young people to keep dreaming. Giving up on a dream is one of the saddest things that can happen to a young person, especially when it’s because of a lack of money. Education is more important than ever, because this is the only way we can rebuild our future.
So with this in mind I’ve decided to fund a scholarship program, and I’m offering $1000 to help towards a student’s education.
I will choose one applicant who presents his/her vision of why education is important for themselves, their family and for our humanity as a global population.
The successful applicant will receive $1.000 toward their tuition fees, and an invitation to join me for an internship at Prime Stables Ltd.
The scholarship is open for all students enrolled at a U.S. university or college and high school seniors who want to begin university in 2017.
Prime Stables is the number one manufacturer of equestrian buildings, american barns and mobile field shelters in the UK, and our success is based on hard work, passion and a love for horses and nature. I firmly believe that youth and education will improve our position as a business, country and a people, so I’m looking for a 1000 word essay on why you think education is important.
Contest participants will submit a 1,000 word essay on the following topic:
Why Is Education Important?
This scholarship is for students that are currently enrolled in colleges, universities or high schools in the United States.
I will pick the winner based on what I feel is a good understanding the importance of education.
The winner will get $1000 covered for the fall semester at an accredited US university, and an invitation to join me at Prime Stables for an internship.
The best five essays as determined by myself will be published on primestables.co.uk.
To apply for the scholarship you must submit by no later than December 1st, 2016. Please include:
