Tutor the People Essay Scholarship

Tutor the People, a lower Manhattan-based tutoring service specializing in graduate admissions test prep (GMAT, MCAT, LSAT, GRE) and undergraduate course help announces an essay contest awarding $500 to one student who best exemplifies the spirit of helping others achieve success.

Tutor the People is committed to its mission of helping unprivileged students gain access to higher education, particularly for those who live in low socioeconomic areas. We believe that in order to create opportunities for entire communities, we must first devote attention to individuals and lead others by example.

Our first scholarship contest challenges entrants to write a (typed) one-page personal story in which you explain how you have helped a member of your community achieve a personal or academic goal. Show us how you have helped someone, either in school, at work, in a sports league, volunteer organization, or other realm of life by being a leader, a teacher, or simply a good friend. Your essay should describe in detail the person you have helped, the challenge or struggle you helped them overcome, and what insights you gained in the process.


For applications and/or information call Student Services at 925-8590.
