After the success of last year’s scholarship contest, Extra Space Storage is excited to announce that our There’s Space for Everyone Scholarship is back for 2022! Our mission is to promote access to higher education for all by offering financial aid to incoming and current college students.
“We were so impressed with the essay submissions and the number of candidates who showed interest in our inaugural There’s Space for Everyone Scholarship last year,” said Brooke Stencil, Vice President of Digital Marketing. Stencil also leads the Social Involvement Diversity & Inclusion committee at Extra Space Storage. “To read about the work these students are doing to make their communities more diverse and inclusive was truly inspiring. We’re excited to bring the scholarship back this year, even bigger and better than before.”
Rather than being a need or achievement-based scholarship, our There’s Space for Everyone Scholarship is designed to support the leaders of tomorrow striving to make the world a better place for all, regardless of race, gender, physical ability, ethnicity, national origin, nationality, religion, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or age. We’re proud to continue offering this program for those who will use the education they receive today to create a better future.
This year, Extra Space Storage is awarding a total of eight $3,000 scholarships to students who demonstrate a passion for equity, inclusivity, and community improvement. Five of these scholarships will be available to any student attending an accredited U.S. college or university, and the remaining three will be offered to employees or immediate family members of Extra Space Storage.
To qualify students must be:
- Enrolled in an accredited college or university for the fall 2022 semester. Incoming students and current undergraduate and graduate students are all encouraged to apply.
- Legal residents of the United States.
- At least 16 years old.
- Follow the complete contest rules
Interested students can apply by filling out our scholarship form and attaching an essay (between 500-800 words) answering the question: “How will you utilize your education and experiences to make your community a more equal, inclusive place for everyone?”
Submissions will be accepted from April 4, 2022 through May 2, 2022, and winners will be announced on June 1, 2022.
