As a Retail Careers SmartBrief subscriber, we wanted you to be aware of a scholarship that offers current part-time or full-time retail employees a fantastic opportunity.
Last year hundreds of retail workers from more than 75 companies applied for the Dream BIG Scholarship, and 20 scholarships were awarded. Given the success of the 2015 scholarship program, and because of the continued growth and strength of the retail industry, University of Phoenix and NRF have decided to award another 20 full-tuition scholarships this year.
I hope you will consider applying for the Dream BIG 2016 scholarship or sharing this opportunity with your colleagues. The scholarship program is open to any U.S. citizen or permanent resident who works full-time or part-time for any retail or restaurant company.
Receiving this scholarship could allow you to pursue an undergraduate degree in business, finance, security or management, or even a master’s degree with University of Phoenix. And, the flexibility of the program means you could to continue to work as you pursue a degree.
To apply, you must complete three short essays and submit a letter of recommendation. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2016. Learn more about how to apply here.
