We are thrilled to be awarding two $500 scholarships every year (one scholarship for the spring semester and one for the fall semester) to college freshmen.
Who is eligible?
The Towel Supercenter scholarship will be available for all students who will be attending college for the first time the semester after they apply. For example, if you’ll be a freshman in the fall, apply for your scholarship before the deadline in the spring.
How to apply

- What is something you’ve done in the past that made a difference in your community?
- How will your college education contribute to society?
- What’s the most positive thing that this generation will be remembered for?
- How can you exhibit leadership without being in an official leadership position?
- What impact would this scholarship have on your education?
