Motor Era is a blog website for the automotive and motorcycle repair industries, hosting information related to auto repair, auto service, classic cars, and more. On the Motor Era website, a person can find automobile and motorcycle repair manuals for all types of vehicles.
Since the purpose of Motor Era is to provide information to people in the automotive industry and we do this by writing, we know the importance of getting a solid education to have the foundation to further a person’s writing skills. Because of this, we are proud to award a $500 scholarship to anybody in the continental US attending an accredited college, university, or technical school.
Application Deadline: July 8, 2018 10:00 PM EST
Winners Announced: July 15, 2018
The scholarship in the amount of $500 will be awarded to a student who can demonstrate their writing ability through the form of a 1,000-word essay about the difference in repairing a domestic vehicle versus a foreign vehicle. The essay will also need to be persuasive, encouraging the audience to buy domestic vehicles and therefore have lower repair costs.
In many career positions, employees must provide their opinions, and not only be able to explain it on paper but also be able to persuade others and convince them to feel the same way. In addition, a future role of the student in the working world may have them writing for websites, blogs, or other forms of social media. This experience will give the student the ability to be able to do things such as form professional and well-written emails and cover letters as well as be able to persuade potential employers on hiring them over someone else.
