SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (PRWEB) September 05, 2018

Ship Smart Inc., a California-based mover that specializes in small moves, has launched a scholarship program aimed at benefiting students attending colleges, universities, and schools. The program, dubbed ‘The Ship Smart Scholarship' is now underway and applicants from all across the US are free to apply.

"We started this scholarship program because we wanted to give back to the community", said Matt from Ship Smart Inc. "We deliberated on how best we could do this and (in the end) we decided to create something that would benefit kids in school. Our research showed us that students in universities, colleges, and similar learning institutions face various financial challenges on a daily basis. We therefore decided to make this demographic our target beneficiary. We are hoping that in due time, this program can grow bigger and benefit even more people."

The Ship Smart Scholarship has four awards. The first award is for $1000, the second is for $500, while the third and fourth awards are worth $300 each. The application window is open between now and December 7, 2018. All students with a GPA of 3.0 and above are eligible to apply, regardless of their age. Students of truck-driving schools and logistics programs are also allowed to apply. To join, all interested candidates should send a 1000 word essay/article to eservices(at)shipsmart(dot)com. The essay/article should talk about small moves, shipping furniture, antiques,electronics, artwork, packing or any of the services that the company deals in. The scholarship committee will pick a winner on December 14th.

Ship Smart Inc. hopes that through this scholarship program, they will be able to help some needy students, albeit in a small way. The financial help, which will be channeled directly to the schools, can help with tuition, learning materials, etc. The moving company is also hoping that their program will encourage other companies to initiate similar attempts aimed at giving back to the community.

It's always inspiring to see commercial businesses embracing the spirit of giving back and launching such worthy causes. If you would like to learn more about this topic, please contact the company directly via the details provided below.
