What does a credit score mean to you? Lexington Law Scholarship Program

January 14th, 2014 by Staff

Lexington Law, the trusted leader in helping people repair their credit reports understands the importance of financial planning and maintaining a great credit score, especially for college students. For this reason, the company is pleased to offer the “Lexington Law Scholarship Award” fund.

Affording college can be a challenge. With the increasing costs of tuition, books, housing, utilities, food, etc., students need all the help they can get. Sometimes that means taking out a loan or using a credit card to cover costs. Taking on debt may be unavoidable to complete an education, but students can learn to avoid harming their credit scores in the process.

Lexington Law is offering this scholarship to students in the United States who write an essay about what a credit score means to them, how they think they will use it in the future, and how they will maintain a good credit score during their college years. Lexington Law believes it is never too early to start thinking about your credit score and your credit report.

How to Apply-

Eligible students will:

  • Write an essay of no fewer than 800 words about what a credit score means to them, how it impacts their financial future, and how they plan to obtain and retain a great credit score during their college years.

YouTube submissions are strongly encouraged, although not required.  Video should be no longer than 4 minutes.  (Essays submitted via YouTube must also be submitted in writing.)
