What This Scholarship Entails

Experiencing that alluring smell of freshly roasted coffee first thing in the morning is good, but being able to pay for your education – and reap the future benefits thereafter – is even better. This is exactly why we’ve created this $600 essay scholarship opportunity, which we sincerely and wholeheartedly hope will help both existing and future students to get at least one step closer to finding their dream careers.

In fact, education is a unique investment in that it brings an exponential positive value the sooner you get it done. If coffee is your passion, and concise writing is your forte, then you’ve come to the right place!
