Thank you to all students who participated in this year's scholarship. Be sure to bookmark our scholarship page and check back with us again for our next scholarship opportunity!

UPDATE: The Connect Your Home $1000 Scholarship for 2013 has ended. Good luck to all who participated!

School is back in session and Connect Your Home wants to help one lucky student with his or her academic adventures in higher education by charitably offering to pay $1000 worth of college expenses. We know the cost of attendance is often frightening. We’ve been there and we know the journey, wherever you decide to go, isn’t going to be cheap one. Our goal with the scholarship is to help one student enjoy the rich and rewarding experience that college affords with our contribution.

Connect Your Home is excited to announce its first scholarship to be awarded to one exemplary student and his or her equally exceptional essay. All essay entries will be graded based on the execution of ideas, argument, and correct use of grammar by members of our Connect Your Home staff.

Good to luck to all participants!
