Working Student Scholarship

Our Scholarship

Here at College Movers, we know that it’s hard and sometimes impossible to work your way through college AND graduate debt-free. That is why we want to help out the next generation of students by offering the College Movers Working Student Scholarship, a scholarship for the working student. A portion of every move will be donated to this scholarship. The number of awards available may vary, however, this scholarship will be awarded to at least one lucky individual per cycle who is attending college within one year of the award and has worked during their career as a student. Applications will be accepted from current college students, seniors in high school, and people wishing to return to school.

College Movers Working Student Scholars will receive a $1000 scholarship. The award can be used for tuition, on-campus housing, study abroad, undergraduate research, unpaid internships, conferences, leadership development, and other educational purposes agreed upon by College Movers.
