Scholarship Details and Guidelines
- Students can be attending or planning to attend any college or graduate school in the United States.
- All applicants must be attending or plan on attending for their first year.
- As proof of your first-year status, you will need to submit a digital copy of your acceptance letter—complete with the college letterhead—from that college.
- The current scholarship will be rewarded for the semester starting in Fall 2017.
- All applications for the current semester are due by August 1, 2017.
To apply, you’ll need to submit a 500+ word essay on the following topic:
How can college students live safer lives?
Once the application period closes, Corban will determine a winner based on the following factors: feasibility, creativity, and the applicant’s level of knowledge in the topic as well as their ability to write a well-crafted essay. He isn’t necessarily looking for an “A”-grade essay from an English or law student, but rather an essay that explores the topic uniquely—one that perhaps encourages students to think about safe ways to enjoy the college lifestyle in a new way.
