When it comes to college tuition, a little financial aid never hurts – especially when it comes in the form of scholarships.
Through Feb. 1, Lawrence Technological University in Southfield is hosting an essay contest to award up to 100 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 a year for four years. The contest is open to Michigan high school seniors (that means you Oakland Township and Lake Orion students!), but the award must be used at Lawrence Tech.
Here's how it works:
- To enter the contest, high school seniors must first apply to Lawrence Tech at www.ltu.edu/futurestudents/apply.asp.
- The essays must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Feb. 1.
- Students can write up to 1,200 words on the following topic: “Are there any projects or discoveries in the realm of sustainability that will make, or have made, a positive impact on our environment? Please choose one project or discovery from any discipline and briefly explain why it was successful, why sustainability is an important idea to explore, and what the future of sustainability will hold.”
Up to 100 students who enter the essay contest will win a four-year scholarship to Lawrence Tech.
All essay winners receive a scholarship, but a second round of competition will be held to determine how large the award is for each student. Contest winners will be invited to Lawrence Tech’s campus in Southfield on Saturday, Feb. 23, to take a 90-minute written test. Students with the best scores on this test will win annual scholarships of $4,000 for four years.
