Rent-A-Center understands the importance of arming students with the tools needed to succeed. That’s why RAC has awarded $60,000 in scholarships to 60 students going back to school this semester to pursue undergraduate degrees. In addition, the company is giving each scholarship recipient a new Google Chromebook.
Rent-A-Center has awarded $60,000 in scholarships to 60 high school and undergraduate students across the country, as part of the Make-A-Difference Scholarship Program. Twenty recipients were coworker dependents, while the remaining 40 were either customers of Rent-A-Center or their children.
Scholarships were awarded based on a number of factors, including academic and non-academic accomplishments, community activities, work experience, and educational and career goals. There were 250 applications.
Rent-A-Center’s Make a Difference scholarships help students and their families offset the rising costs of attending college. We have long understood the impact a college education has on developing a diverse and well-qualified workforce, and applications for scholarships for the 2015-16 school term are being accepted now.
