Moving App Offering $10,000 Scholarship

Tuesday, June 26, 2018
Bellhops, a tech-enabled moving service, announced today that it will give away one $10,000 college scholarship. 

The company, which began as a college-based dorm-moving service in 2011, quickly grew into a full-service moving provider powered by an online app. However, Bellhops’ Co-Founder and President Cam Doody, says the company hasn’t forgotten where it started. 

“Our moving services may have grown far beyond our collegiate roots, but our commitment to college students hasn’t,” said Mr.
Doody. “This scholarship program is an extension of that commitment, and I hope it will support and empower someone to chase their dreams like I did years ago.”

Applications for the Bellhops Moving Forward Scholarship are currently being accepted nationwide. 

Applicants can apply online. A valid application shall be comprised of the following: (1) a completed application form; (2) an essay; (3) an academic transcript; and (4) a photo. More details here.

The Bellhops scholarship contest is held annually to support students pursuing a college education. Bellhops increased the scholarship amount from $3,000 to $10,000 this year and hopes to offer even more educational support in the future. 

The submission period closes Sept. 15 and the recipient of the scholarship will be announced on Sept. 25.
