As an international shipping company that gives communities around the globe access to U.S. goods, MyUS.com understands the power of connection. By connecting teachers to educational supplies for their classrooms, medical professionals to the latest innovations in healthcare, and countless others to resources they couldn’t otherwise access, MyUS.com helps customers shape the world around them.
This power of community can’t be understated ‒ particularly for students working hard to achieve their educational goals and find their place in the world. Because connecting to one’s community is such an integral part of Ramadan observances, MyUS.com is interested in understanding how your community has affected the way you approach your studies and your future career.
Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection, devotion and connecting with family and community. It’s also a time to give back. And that’s why we are excited to announce the MyUS.com Community Scholarship, a global annual scholarship that will provide select eligible students with financial assistance as they earn their degrees.
To qualify for scholarship consideration, eligible students should write a 500-word essay detailing how introspection and community outreach during Ramadan have affected their choices in life, including what to study, which university/college to attend and which career they will pursue after graduation.
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Any submissions not received through this email will be disqualified. If you’re having trouble submitting your essay, please contact MyUS.com at email@example.com for assistance.
Essays will be reviewed ‒ and the recipient will be selected ‒ based on the student’s ability to communicate their story as it relates to the questions above and to the overarching theme of the scholarship, as well as the thoughtfulness of their essay.
To apply for the scholarship, the applicant must be a student currently enrolled at an officially recognized, accredited college or university. Students who are not currently enrolled but have been accepted to attend may be eligible if they are registered with the college or university.
The scholarship recipient will receive a one-time $2,000 (USD) educational scholarship to be applied to qualifying expenses, including undergraduate tuition, fees, books, and on-campus room and board for the 2019 or 2020 academic year. Funds are provided by Access Shipping LLC (MyUS.com).
Payments issued by MyUS.com are made payable to the student's approved college or university and mailed after September 1, 2019, directly to the accredited college or university last designated by the student.
The scholarship recipient will be selected by MyUS.com after the August 1, 2019 entry deadline. The winner will be announced and notified via email on or before September 1, 2019.
The institution must be accredited and recognized by the government in which the university is established. Any students who attend universities/colleges that do not fit the criteria will be disqualified.
The recipient must be enrolled without interruption, barring illness, emergency or military service. It is the recipient's responsibility to verify receipt of funds with their designated institution and notify MyUS.com if the award check does not arrive on or about 30 days from the issue date.
