About The Scholarship!
For a number of years the good people at SwissGear.com have been equipping college students for success with their abundance of travel gear and backpacks. So, it seems only natural that they would establish the Ultimate Backpack Scholarship program to support students through the financial aspect of their college experience. SwissGear is providing financial support to students this year in the form of three scholarships – one is for $5,000 and the other two are for $2,500. These scholarships are available to incoming freshman in addition to currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students! To be considered for the scholarship, all you have to do is submit an application and a brief essay (500 words or less) that describes the perfect backpack. The application deadline is August 31st. The scholarship submission form along with additional information can be found here.
