401k Business Financing Scholarship: $1,000  

MySolo401k.net is a leading facilitator of 401k small business financing. Our 401k SelfStarter Plan, also known as a rollover as business startup (ROBS), allows entrepreneurs to fund a business or franchise with their retirement funds without taking a taxable distribution or loan. By minimizing debt, the business is more likely to succeed.  Ultimately, we empower individuals to turn their idea or concept from a dream into a reality.

Of course, we know the benefits of funding a business or franchise with 401k, IRA or other retirement funds, but we want to hear it from your perspective: What are the benefits of using retirement funds to purchase or fund a business or franchise? Why should an individual use retirement funds over traditional forms of small business financing (equity and debt financing)? What is the long term value of the ROBS transaction to a business owner?


Any student enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at any accredited United States university, college or trade school.


A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded; this money can be used toward tuition or books.


Applicants must submit an essay of 1,000 words minimum on the topic "What are the benefits of using funds in your 401k, IRA or other retirement account to finance your business or franchise?”

Apply at http://www.mysolo401k.net/benefits-using-401k-to-fund-business-franchise-scholarship.html.

ACLS Medical Training Scholarship Program

You are already dedicating your life to helping those in need. Why not do something to help yourself?  We invite you to enter the ACLS Medical Training Scholarship Program. We will select one top award winner who will receive a $1,000 unrestricted scholarship (unrestricted means you can buy pizza with the award instead of books if you want—the check is in your name).  The winning essay will be posted on ACLSMedicalTraining.com along with the second and third best essays. These two runners-up will receive one complimentary pass to the ALCS Medical Training Certification program of their choice (BLS, ACLS, or PALS) valued at $275.

ACLS Medical Training is interested in hearing how you think about providing emergency medical care. You are entering a profession in which you may be called upon to provide basic life support, advanced cardiovascular life support, or pediatric advanced life support. Are you excited? Is this scary? How will you handle the situation when the time comes? If you have  already performed lifesaving techniques, what was it like? Did you use the skills you were taught? There are no correct answers—we are looking for honest, compelling essays.

What do I write about?

Write an essay, between 500 and 1000 words, on one the following topics:

  1. If you have assisted someone in a life support situation, describe your role in the process, the emotions or feelings that you experienced, and how the situation was resolved.
  2. If you have not assisted someone in a life support situation, describe how you have prepared (mentally and/or physically) to respond when the event arises. Consider and describe what it might be like to provide basic or advanced life support in an emergency.

Innovation in Education Scholarship

At LA Tutors, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram that helps us understand the world better; and still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation brings together in unique ways our technical skills and our hopes for a better world.

It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.
We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.

Jan Egerton and Don Smitley Mesothelioma Scholarship

MesotheliomaHelp is pleased to announce the “Jan Egerton and Don Smitley Mesothelioma Scholarship.” We are proud to offer ten (10) scholarships in the names of these two mesothelioma warriors.

Jan Egerton battled mesothelioma for over 10 years and during that time she dedicated her life to raising awareness of the dangers of asbestos and to championing the researchers to continue to focus on finding a cure and new treatments for the cancer. Jan’s husband said, “I know Jan would be delighted to have this accolade, and I would be honored for you to use Jan’s name. This is a legacy of which she would be proud.” Jan was one of last year’s judges.

Don Smitley spent his days enjoying time with his family, his dog, Charley, and playing in his bluegrass band, The Dunbar Boys. No one ever heard Don complain or wonder, “Why me?” while he fought mesothelioma. But everyone that knew him would say that faith and a positive attitude carried him through each day. Don’s daughter, Jennifer Gelsick, chronicled her family’s journey during mesothelioma, and now discusses life after losing a loved one to mesothelioma through her blog. “We are so honored to have Dad’s name on the scholarship. It’s such a perfect way to remember and honor him,” said Jennifer. Jennifer will be one of the essay judges this year.

The scholarship is available to students in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Our goal is to help the educational efforts of students while raising awareness of mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos. Mesothelioma is a disease that affects men and women – both young and old.

Each winner of this essay contest will be awarded a check from the law firm of Belluck & Fox, LLP. These funds must be used to pay for college tuition and / or education-related expenses.

One (1) essay per student is allowed.

Additional information can be found at www.mesotheliomahelp.org/scholarship-contest/.

We want to help remove financial roadblocks so that you can focus on your studies and your family.

Katz & Phillips, P.A. is very active in the community, and one of our goals with our community work is encouraging and supporting future attorneys. We believe the practice of law is a valuable and fulfilling career and that all dedicated law students deserve an equal chance.

2015 Michigan Auto Law Car Accident Injury Survivor Scholarship

Our Michigan auto accident law firm is offering an annual scholarship for college students who were victims of car accidents earlier in their lives and who have overcome their injuries.

We understand how difficult it can be to recover after a serious injury. Our attorneys have been helping people injured in auto accidents for more than 50 years, and want to lend a hand to those who have survived serious crashes and who are demonstrating resolve and determination to rebuild their lives.

We also want to recognize individual acts of heroism and hard work. Our Car Accident Injury Survivor Scholarship serves as an important reminder that each and every person injured in an auto accident is a person, not a number or a claim. Today, most of the insurance industry uses injury claims software that dehumanizes people by putting a dollar value on a case. When personal injuries and pain and suffering are given average dollar settlement values, we lose sight of what it means when someone is hurt in a serious crash and how drastically a life can be changed.

Our hope is that by recognizing outstanding young people who have overcome serious injury, we can remind everyone that car accident injury survivors are people.

Our annual scholarship of $500 will be awarded to two applicants in 2015.

Eligibility and selection criteria

Applicants must:

Selection is based on the overall strength of the application and how that applicant has overcome the challenges he or she has faced from being injured in a car accident.

Applicants must submit the following items:

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers’ Single Mother Scholarship

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers believes in the empowerment of single mothers through education. Education has the power to open doors for single mothers and even their children. Having a degree or certification can enable a woman to expand her lifetime earning potential, increase her gross income, and provide her with better job opportunities.

In turn, this allows a single mother to financially support her children, purchase groceries, afford a mortgage and provide a stable household for the family. Even though it can be difficult to care for a child while pursuing an education, the rewards of an education far outweigh the challenges. We want to expand opportunities for single mothers who are going back to school by offering two $1,000 scholarships (one awarded to a single mother in an undergraduate program or community college and one to a single mother enrolled in an accredited law school)

The Application Process

To apply for a scholarship from RIL, write a 500+ word essay on the advantages of going back to school while caring for your children as a mother. How do you believe motherhood has helped prepare you for the challenges that you will face as a student? Examples may include the ability to succeed in time management skills, ability to listen carefully to others and ability to effectively manage multiple priorities. Craft your essay and explain your answer.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers will review applications and award 2 applicants with a $1,000 scholarship each. The scholarship may be used to cover school-related expenses, such as tuition fees, registration costs, supplies and books.
After we review the submissions, we will choose 5 finalists for the scholarship. Staff at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers will elect the winners.

Structured Settlement Career Planning Scholarship

Are you attending college in the United States and looking for a scholarship? We're providing a $1,000 scholarship for the 2015-2016 school year.

I'm proud to share that Roosevelt "Teddy" Lovett was not only my grandfather, but also one of my earliest teachers. He taught me to do things the proper way. Lessons I remember include counting, ironing, and finishing what I started--at least I know how to count well.

One lesson I learned by simply observing Roosevelt is that we should help people. I watched him help almost everyone who asked. He didn't make anyone grovel or feel embarrassed. He didn't take long to make up his mind--he just helped. He went out of his way to help. That's what I'm doing by creating this scholarship fund in his name and that's what you will do by responding to my prompt and creating an excellent resource for others.

Write 650-900 words for the prompt, "What Can College Students Do to Improve Their Job Prospects?"

On an unrelated note, you're welcome to connect with me on LinkedIn and Google+. If you follow the rules when submitting an application, I will do my best to help provide career guidance...presuming you seek it.

By applying for this scholarship, you agree to provide co-authorship rights to your response to our prompt and you agree to allow us to post your biographical information. The winning response will be published on this site as a resource for other students to utilize. We may use your response to create a derivative work, such as an article or video. Your bio will be posted to provide transparency.

The Tix Team 2014 Law Scholarship for Veterans

The Tix Team is proud to support future lawyers with the launch of their first-ever Law Scholarship for Veterans, awarded to one high-achieving, bright student intending to pursue a career in law within the United States.

At the law firm of The Tix Team, we believe there is no career nobler that a military veteran could choose than the practice of law. That’s why we are offering a $1,000 scholarship for veterans pursuing a Juris Doctor degree.

We believe strongly in the work that our men and women in uniform perform both at home and overseas, and we believe that veterans bring a sense of ethics, justice and order that will serve them well in the field of law—and ultimately, will bolster the results they can achieve for their clients.

For all students, post-secondary education can be daunting. The cost of college and law school is never inconsequential and law students face a level of competition that is unheard of in most fields of study. We hope that this scholarship will help make it possible for a veteran to overcome financial obstacles and focus all of their effort on delivering their top performance as a student. We believe that everyone who dreams of practicing law should have the opportunity to do exactly that, based on nothing but their own merits.

To qualify for our Military Veterans Scholarship you must be either active military or retired from military service (any branch). You must be either:
