Oz Moving & Storage Scholarship 2015

Oz Moving & Storage is proud to be a part of our local communities and even more proud to be involved with volunteering our time to various causes that help to grow our community. As part of our commitment to helping make our local communities a better place, we are reaching out to financially help one lucky student with a $1,000 Scholarship. We know that paying for college can be a challenge. The courses, textbooks, and dorm life can add up quickly. We want to help make it that much easier so you can focus on what matters most - the academics. While the journey may not be easy, the reward of an academic education will remain with you for a lifetime.

Oz Moving & Storage’s $1,000 Essay Scholarship will be awarded to one qualifying graduating high school student or undergraduate college student with the most provocative and well-written essay. Fill out our quick survey below, email us your essay and the $1,000 could be yours!

We hope to see many student participants for our 2015 scholarship! Be sure to read the rules and submission details carefully before entering.*

Essays will be graded based on proper use of grammar and execution of ideas and argument on the student's topic of choice by selected staff of Oz Moving & Storage.
