University Language Services

Our Fall 2014 contest opens Wednesday, August 27, 2014.

Win a $500.00 College Scholarship from University Language Services!

High school students: Where do you see yourselves in college?

Show University Language Services for a chance to win a $500.00 college scholarship!

For prospective college students, visiting a college campus for the first time is all about finding the perfect fit. One of the most important things you might consider upon arrival is whether or not you can imagine yourself attending that particular school.

While you’re on a campus tour, take a picture of a place on campus where you could see yourself spending a large amount of time. It could be anywhere: the main quad, a study lounge in a dorm, a basketball stadium, an auditorium…you get the idea.

Submit the photo you’ve taken, along with a description of 150-200 words, telling us why this particular part of campus appeals to you.

Both the quality of the picture and the spelling, grammar and thought put into your description count!

Here’s how the contest works:

The contest will be split into 4 rounds during which students can submit their photos.

After each round of the contest, we’ll post the 8 best submissions on our website. Then, you and other visitors to our site can vote for your favorite! The 3 photos with the most votes will be the finalists for that round.

At the end of the final round, the scholarship winners will be chosen from the finalists by a panel of judges. First place will win a $500 scholarship, and second and third places will each receive $100 scholarships.

Here are the dates you need to know:
