Giva's Corporate Student Scholarship and Worldwide Community Ambassador Award is for anyone attending a college or university worldwide. This scholarship grant is aimed at assisting undergraduate or graduate students further their education as well as expand their social responsibility and community service footprint in the world. There is no specific course of study or major required.
Giva will award $1000 scholarships to undergraduate or graduate students who write thoughtful essays in answering the following questions:
How will you use your talents and education to make the world a better place for future generations? What are your career and personal goals and why?
The essay needs to be between 600-1000 words, and must be submitted to our mailing address no later than June 1st or December 1st of each year. A current resume must also be included with the essay. Giva will choose the scholarship winners and will award the scholarships by August 15th and February 15th of each year. Students can only apply once in any 12-month period.
In addition to the scholarship winners will be entered into Giva's six-month Worldwide Community Ambassador essay program. Giva will provide a social media platform wherein subsequent essays written by the award winners will be published on the Giva website, as well as other social media. The essays will reflect the personal experiences, perspectives and aspirations of the winners in order to encourage and inspire others.
Your educational institution must post this scholarship announcement on their public web site so that all students at your school have an opportunity to apply. If you found Giva's scholarship on another web site, please advise your school of our scholarship and ask them to please post it on their public web site. Otherwise, you will not be eligible.
Essays may be competitively judged in a public forum and posted anonymously on Giva's public web site for judging so do not include private information in your essay or anything you do not want posted on the Internet.
All students, regardless of major, currently attending a college or university degree program either full or part-time are eligible and encouraged to apply. The candidate must be enrolled and active as a student already, not a high school student and not waiting to attend the college/university. The award is for school tuition so the scholarship check will be written out to the student's educational institution. Giva employees, family relatives and vendors are not eligible.
You must send a hard copy of this application, essay and resume to Giva's headquarters mailing address and also send Giva an electronic version of all documents. Please see the application for emailing instructions.
