THE DRIVE TO LEARN SCHOLARSHIP

 

Application Deadline: March 1st, 2014

Award Announcement: May 1st, 2014

 

General Program Information

Since our company's inception, Shift Insurance has aimed to change the way you think about insurance and now we aim to change the way you think about learning. Pursuing post-secondary education can provide us with important experiences that extend our knowledge and contribute to personal growth. However, there are also life experiences that occur outside the classroom that can offer bits of wisdom in our lives. Consider driving, for instance. The majority of the country’s population spends a good chunk of time behind the wheel and/or as passengers on a regular basis but how often do any of us seize the opportunity to reflect on these experiences?

Take a moment to think about your most memorable experiences—both good and bad—as a driver and/or a passenger. Whether or not you noticed it at the time, they probably helped you learn something about yourself, others, or life in general. Share your experiences with us and take advantage of our new scholarship opportunity! Shift Insurance is offering The Drive to Learn scholarship award to college students across the United States to honor the learning done in and outside of classroom walls. If you are currently a full-time student at a four-year university, graduate program, community college, or trade school, Shift Insurance wants to hear from you. Simply tell us about an important learning experience you had while on the road —either as a driver or a passenger—and you could receive $1000!

Eligibility Requirements

  1. Read the Terms and Conditions - Our full Terms and Conditions section must be read and agreed to in order to qualify for the program.
  2. Full time student - Applicants must be enrolled full time (at least 12 undergraduate units or 6-9 graduate units) at a single educational institution located in the continental United States.
  3. Citizenship - U.S citizens and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply
  4. Response to Prompt - In 750-1000 words, prepare a written response that addresses ONE of the following prompts:
    1. Some of the best life-lessons are the ones we learn from our mistakes. Share a lesson you learned when facing the consequences of bad decision-making as a driver or a passenger. Describe the situation and explain how it led to a valuable learning experience.
    2. Learning how to drive is a different experience for everyone because some may find it easy to accomplish while others struggle with the challenge. Describe your experience. What did it take for you to become a confident driver? What valuable lesson(s) did you learn--about yourself, others, or life in general--during or after the process?
    3. You may have noticed that people tend to change over time. For example, you're probably not the same person you were as a freshman in high school. Think about the driver you were when you first obtained your driver's license. Maybe you were a young and reckless driver or perhaps a timid and careful driver. Now think about the driver you are today. Describe how you have changed as a driver. Does this transformation reflect changes in other aspects of your life (i.e. driving more carefully after a near-death experience, driving aggressively after losing your job, etc.)? If so, explain. Would you consider this transformation to your benefit or do you see it as a potential problem? Why?
    4. Although the vast majority of the country's population drives on a regular basis, there are still many people who do not. Are you one of them? What's keeping you from getting behind the wheel? Maybe the city you live in is not commuter-friendly, maybe you cannot afford to buy a car, or perhaps you simply choose not to drive. Describe your situation. Is this an obstacle for you?
