If you are still not sure if you should apply for a Binc scholarship, here are 5 reasons you shouldn’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity.
Time is money
If it takes you a total of 10 hours to find and apply for a Binc Scholarship and you receive a $3,500 award, you have made $350 per hour—more than most of us make at our jobs! If you win the $10,000 scholarship…well, that is even better!
You are investing in your greatest asset – YOU
Pursuing the career of your dreams through education is one way to invest in yourself and ensure that your future career is what you want it to be – fulfilling, productive, supportive to others in your community and fun!
Relief from worrying about finances
A Binc Scholarship will give you the ability to focus on your studies instead of focusing on the stress and worries that come with wondering how you will be able to pay your tuition costs.
Getting a scholarship would look really good on your resume
When it comes time to apply for a full-time position, potential employers look favorably on student applicants who took the time and initiative to apply for, and earn, a scholarship.
You might win!
This year the Binc Foundation is awarding almost $200,000 in scholarship funds to bookstore employees and their dependents. That is a lot of money! One thing is certain—if you don’t apply, you won’t win.
