The past few weeks in the greater Boston area have been inundated with thousands of first-time and returning students from all over the globe moving to their college dorms or to their off-campus housing. Now that the move-in days have passed and you are all settled in – Esquire would love to hear about your moving experiences.
It is true that we may have the professional procedures locked down, but college moving is in a league of its own with students who have to move in and out from one semester to the next. As a result, we are pretty sure that the student population has that part of the moving experience on-lock.
To sweeten your incentive for sharing your personal expertise with us, we will be awarding one resourceful student with the 2019 Esquire Moving Scholarship in the amount of $750 to be used toward college expenses. All you have to do to apply is to write an essay sharing your tips and tricks for college moving. If you have some clever hacks that make moving much easier for you, then we want to hear about it!
At Esquire, we believe that today’s students represent a bright future of growth, innovation, and opportunity while demonstrating their remarkable ability to transcend their dreams beyond the realm of possibility. We want to show our support to those extremely talented individuals by inspiring each and every one of you to reach for your goals with unyielding hope and determination.
You must be a current student who is actively enrolled within an accredited college or university and you must be in good standing academically with a minimum 2.5 GPA requirement.
Of course, we understand how expensive and challenging life can be after finishing college as you embark upon the next phase of your journey. Therefore, we will be accepting submissions from recent college graduates who have received their degrees within one year of the award announcement date.
