    CarCovers.com - Outside Scholarship

    Deadline: December 15, 2020

    Some people treat their cars like their children. They carefully wash and wax them, make certain not to park too close to other vehicles to avoid scratches and dents and tuck them into their garage at night. Many protect their vehicles with car covers, garage or not. These car owners do everything they can to make their vehicles last forever. While most cars in the US are on the road for an average of 11.4 years, there are ways of extending your car’s life, so that it still runs great many more years after your purchase.

    Some people obsessively keep their cars clean, while others take their cars to the shop every time they hear a strange noise or think something has gone wrong. Those with expensive cars may even get a cheaper car for their daily driving and only drive their luxury vehicle on special occasions. We’re looking for your thoughts on the best ways to make a car last forever.

  • Write a minimum of 1000 words essay on the topic:
  • “How to Make Your Car Last Forever”
  • Eligibility:
  • Any student enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 at any accredited American college, university or trade school.

    LA Tutors Scholarship - Outside Scholarship

    At LA Tutors, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram that helps us understand the world better; and still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

    One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways.

    It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.

    We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.

    • Must currently be enrolled as a high school or college/university student within the United States or Canada.
    • Must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (or the equivalent).
    • Must be a citizen of, permanent resident of, or hold a valid student visa in the United States or Canada.
    • Must have designed an innovative project that makes a difference in the lives of others (This could be a website, series of blogs, an app, fundraising event, etc.)
    • Must submit an essay describing the goal of the particular project and provide supporting documentation.
    • The essay, idea, or creation must be the applicant’s original work.
    • All submissions must be uploaded no later than 11:59 pm PST on the 20th of each month. The submission window closes starting the 21st and will reopen on the 1st at 8:00 a.m.
