The Craig McConnel Scholarship Program

  • What - $500
  • When - Every Semester
  • How - Write an Essay

 

One of the toughest decisions college students make is to work or not while pursuing their degree. If anyone had their druthers of course dedicating a full time effort to the collegiate experience is the route we would all take. I did not have this opportunity. Sure I took out student loans and wasted them on Spring break trips to Cancun and Acapulco.

Had I used that money to keep my time free or invested in a small SEO consulting start-up of my own design I think I would have had an easier time completing college than I did. However, I still remember every detail of those trips and never thought about the loans again.

 

I would like to give you the opportunity to have a better time at university and not worry so much about the financial costs.

 

When I started school I was not lucky enough to earn grants and scholarships so I didn’t have to worry about paying for college. I wished I had the opportunity to instead focus all of my spare time on entrepreneurship or college life.
