CansCount.org Recycling Scholarship

CansCount.org Recycling Scholarship
Deadline: January 13

Would you like to receive a scholarship and help save the world at the same time? If so, the CansCount.org recycling scholarship might be the award for you. This award is open to international students from around the world, between the ages of 13 and 25 who will be studying inside the US.

The winner will be selected based upon not only their recycling efforts, but also on their essay in response to the following:

“How your recycling efforts have influenced your community.”

It takes an aluminum can about 400 years to break down naturally. If a can is recycled, it only takes about 60 days before it is back on a grocery store shelf again. This award is sponsored by canscount.org and in efforts to promote the positive effects of recycling.

Students have until January 13 to save and collect as many cans as possible to be recycled. The winner of this scholarship will be awarded a $500.00 cash prize. If you would like further information on how to apply for the CansCount.org recycling scholarship, you can find out more here.

    I present my best regards.
    I Youvenson Renaud, a Haitian. It is with great pleasure that I took the initiative aimed to write you, I hesitated before doing so but still, I am obliged.
    I’m not the only and the first person you ask such a favor but I still hope you will consider my case.
    I live in Haiti since my childhood with my parents.
    I finished my classical studies since 2010 but I have not enough resources to go to university, so I am forced to spend time doing nothing and now we are in 2012, I still do not see resources to go to university.
    What I’d like to ask you is to help me find a scholarship to study.
    Please help me because I have no one to help me.
    I humbly beseech you, and I believe you will answer me.
    I think it can be a bit difficult for you, ie give me a scholarship to study so although after my studies I have to work to repay you, I will do it with great joy as a sign of recognition.
    Thank you already.
    I wait with great anticipation your reply.
    It was Renaud Youvenson from Haiti
