New Scholarship Opportunity for Latinas21 09 2011
When it comes to college, many of us are familiar with loans which often take years to pay off after graduation. Then of course there are scholarships. If you’re in college and in need of some extra funds, I’m here to tell you about the Latina Smart Fund Scholarship by Kmart!
How to Apply
Between Sept. 15 and Oct. 31, eligible candidates can apply for the Latina Smart Fund scholarship by either submitting a 750-1,000 word essay or uploading a two minute video of themselves answering a topical question to Latina Smart Fund Scholarship App on their facebook page.
The top 50 contestants, or most “Liked” entries, will be rated by the Latina Smart Ambassadors (such as myself) based on criteria such as originality, style and enthusiasm.
The top 20 selections will then advance to the final round where a panel of experts in the areas of business and education will choose oneÂ $10,000Â scholarship recipient and threeÂ $5,000 runner-up awards.
You can find the application app on theÂ Facebook community page. The link to the application is on the left side of the Facebook page and titled Latina Smart Scholarship.
