Our Rentacomputer Cares Scholarship features a scholarship totalling $2,000 that is awarded to students who demonstrate strong academic and career goals. Applicants must be currently enrolled or planning to attend an accredited university within the next 12 months (we will require enrollment verification before any money is awarded), and must be working towards a degree. Submit an application before May 31th. Finalists are chosen and contacted during the first weeks of June and recipients will be announced upon confirmation of enrollment.

To apply, fill out the form below and submit an essay of no more than 500 words describing your academic and career goals. The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate a strong motivation to succeed and the ability to plan ahead.

All applicants must meet the following requirements:
  • Be currently attending college, or planning to attend college in the next 12 months
  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • If currently enrolled in college, must have a minimum GPA of 2.5
  • Must be working towards a degree at an accredited university

Judging will be done by the Rentacomputer.com Scholarship Review Board and will focus on applicants' abilities to outline their educational and career goals; specifically, the Review Board will be looking for applicants with realistic goals where the career is built on the education. The applicants who demonstrate the strongest motivation, desire, forethought, and career planning will be considered finalists in the scholarships and may be asked additional questions to determine a final recipient.

Any application not containing the required information or any essay not meeting the length restrictions will be rejected and applicants will be unable to reapply until the following scholarship year. Scholarships are granted in $500 allocations for a period of up to 4 years, as long as the scholarship recipient remains enrolled in college and maintains a minimum GPA of 2.5. We reserve the right to verify high school and college transcripts of any applicant. Applications for the 2016 Rentacomputer Cares Scholarship must be received by 11:59 PM Eastern Time, May 31, 2016. Applications for the 2017 Rentacomputer Cares Scholarships may be submitted starting 12:00 AM Eastern Time, May 31, 2016.

Your contact information will never be given or sold to third parties under any circumstance and you will never be contacted by Rentacomputer.com or our affiliated companies for any reason unrelated to the scholarship program.

By submitting an application you agree that in the event you are awarded the Rentacomputer Cares Scholarship, your name and/or likeness may be used in promotional material such as, but not limited to: press releases, blog articles, and news stories.

If you are awarded the scholarship, you must contact us with enrollment verification by September 30th to receive the next installment of your scholarship. If you fail to meet this deadline, your current and all subsequent installments will be forfeit.
