Congratulations to Hannah for winning the Student Debt Relief 2014/2015 scholarship.

2014/2015 Finalist Entries
Student Debt Relief is committed to helping students receive a higher education, while keeping their student debt as low as possible. Students often have debt that accumulates due to many aspects of college and is not limited to the cost of tuition alone. Often costs such as books, food, room & board, car repairs and pleasure end up driving students to borrow and accumulate more debt then they expected. To show our commitment to those who have thought about this and have a plan to minimize their student debt, we have an annual Student Debt Relief Scholarship program.
Student Debt Relief will offer a scholarship of $2,000 dollars to be paid to any college or university towards the cost of tuition. The scholarship will be paid directly to the school on behalf of the winner, and not directly to the winner of the scholarship. The scholarship will be paid in one lump sump payment to the university and cannot be broken up into various semesters.
