Let BusRental.com Help You Get an Education!
BusRental.com is proud to sponsor an annual essay contest for individuals enrolled full-time at an accredited university or college anywhere in the United States. There’s no requirement that you provide proof of your student status to submit an essay, but if you are chosen as the recipient, we’ll ask you to send us a valid transcript and a copy of your student identification card.
At BusRental.com, we know that travel changes lives. We’re looking for essays about the impact travel has had on your life, whether it’s a memorable experience you’ve had, an unforgettable person you’ve met out on the open road, what your dream vacation might include, or simply what it is that you love about seeing the world. Your essay needs to be at least 700 words, and we ask that you limit it to 1,000. Any travel-related topic is fine. The winning entrant will receive a one-time scholarship award of $1,000, to be paid directly to your school. We’ll also post the winning submission on the BusRental.com website.
The Contest Rules
To be eligible for the essay contest, you must:
- Include your name and a valid e-mail address on your paper, in the upper left hand corner of the first page. A title page, however, is not required.
- Follow all requirements of the MLA style book
- Submit the essay in easily readable font with one inch margins, as well as one inch headers and footers. No script fonts, please!
- Submit an essay that draws from your own experience. Don’t tell us a story you heard from someone else—tell us how travel has positively affected your life.
- Submit an essay that is within the prescribed word count restrictions (700-1,000) above
- Send us your essay in digital format. E-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer two scholarships each calendar year—one for the fall semester and one for the spring semester. You can be considered for both semesters, but will need to apply separately for each. The funds may only be used to pay the costs of tuition and you cannot assign your right to the funds to another person. Accordingly, if you don’t enroll for the semester for which the scholarship is awarded, you won’t be entitled to the proceeds.
