Scholarship Information

Besides offering professional resume writing services, our mission at ResumePundits is to help further the professional careers of students. Furthering your career doesn’t begin with your job search, but rather with your education.

College is expensive, and for many too expensive. ResumePundits has launched the ResumePundits Scholarship Program to help reduce the financial burden of a college education by awarding scholarships to qualified high school seniors and college students.

We believe that education is the key to success in securing your dream job which can change people’s lives. This scholarship is meant to help in doing just that. If you have any questions about our application process or the program in general, please contact us at info@resumepundits.com.

Official Rules

Judging

Short Essays: Judges will evaluate essays based on originality, creativity, grammatical accuracy, and ability to inspire others. There is no formula breaking down the importance of each such criterion. Instead, each essay will be considered in its entirety. Judges will be asking themselves the following questions: Does the essay present an original viewpoint or perspective? How well-written is the essay? Does the essay inspire the reader?

Prize

One winner is selected out of the pool of applicants. The winner will receive a scholarship of $1000 which can be applied to the following school-related expenses: tuition, fees, books, and on-campus room and board. The winner will be contacted via e-mail, and must respond within 5 days in order to accept the reward. If no response is received within that time frame, another winner will be selected to receive the award instead.

Submission

All contest submissions must be made through the ResumePundits website. No other types of submission will be accepted. All content submitted must be in English.
