Jan. 09, 2013
Apply today for your chance to win one of three scholarships sponsored by CengageBrain.
In May of last year, CengageBrain introduced their national competition, America’s Top TA, as part of their ongoing dedication to education. College students from across the U.S. were given the opportunity to recognize the teaching assistants (TAs) who have had the greatest impact on their education. For the grand prize, CengageBrain pledged to establish three $2,500 scholarships in the winning TA’s name, and our winner earned the duty of determining the scholarship criteria and ultimately selecting the scholarship recipients. After much anticipation, the time to apply for The Dan Coiro Scholarship by CengageBrain has finally arrived!
Saving for college is never an easy feat! In fact, according to the Institute for College Access and Success, students who borrowed for college and earned bachelor’s degrees in 2011 graduated with an average $26,600 in student loan debt, up from $25,250 in 2010. And that total is on the up and up each year. CengageBrain has chosen to sponsor these scholarships to help illustrate the importance of a college education as well as the hard-working teaching assistants that facilitate higher learning.
The Dan Coiro Scholarship by CengageBrain is open to all students pursuing a degree in science or engineering. To apply, students must submit a full application and a personal statement proposing solutions for keeping education affordable. CengageBrain is accepting applications through January 31, 2013.
