Are you an undergraduate or graduate college or university student?
VelvetJobs is proud to announce a $1000 scholarship for students studying in the USA or overseas. The “Employee Morale Scholarship” aims to get students thinking about their own potential future management position and how their decisions can affect employee morale.
What are we looking for?
Through our own outplacement services we've dealt with thousands of employers on the issues that affect them most when it comes to retaining employees and keeping them happy. We're looking for students to write about their favorite idea on how to boost and maintain employee morale.
Who can apply?
- Open to USA or international students
- Entrants must 18 years or older.
- No GPA requirement.
The piece should include a headline of the morale boosting idea and then should include at least 500 words on how to effectively deploy the strategy.
Email your essay and the morale boosting idea to email@example.com. Please include the following information:
- Full name
- Phone number
- College or University where you are enrolled or plan to attend
- Current school year
What to consider when writing the idea:
We will be judging the strategy on both it's uniqueness and it's practicality. That means the idea should stand out from the crowd but also be easily implemented into the workforce.
The idea does not have to be overarching to all types of workforce but can be individualized to a specific workforce such as (office based, manufacturing, mobile workers, etc.).
When is the deadline?
December 16th, 2017.
The winner will be announced by January, 15th, 2018
Scholarship funds will be released for the Spring 2018 semester.
