Successories Scholarship

Motivation drives us to succeed--whether it is an internal motivation that keeps us committed to reaching our goals or an external challenge that makes us push forward beyond what we thought possible. Not all people are motivated by the same things, and not all people are motivated to accomplish the same things. Only your motivations are known to you. That is why Successories needs you to tell them, in less than 250 words, what is that X factor that keeps you determined to reach your goals. Let your motivation be that catalyst to enter this scholarship for free money for school. The scholarship essay question is: "We want to know... what motivates you to succeed? Whether it's succeeding in your personal life, academically or in your career, share your motivation with us for a chance to win $1,500 for college."All entries must be received before January 31, 2020.Further details and information may be accessed at https://www.successories.com/scholarship
