We began accepting applications for the Winter 2011 scholarship on September 27, 2010 and ceased accepting applications at Midnight Eastern Daylight Time on January 31, 2011 as stated in the scholarship rules. We really appreciate the support of everyone who participated!
We are in the process of selecting and notifying finalists. Finalists are given 10
business days from date of notification to prove that they are
a United States citizen. If proof is not received in the allotted time frame then
new finalists are chosen. Because of this no date can be given
for when the winner will be announced. Finalists may be notified by either email, snail mail, telephone, or carrier pigeon if we can find one that knows the way.
The selected winner must enroll as a full or part-time student at an accredited college,
university, or trade school in the United States of America by January 31, 2012 or else forfeit the award funds. Award funds will only be sent after student provides proof of enrollment.
Note that we can not reply to individual applicants who have questions about the scholarship such as: Was my application received? When will the winner be announced? Am I a finalist? Am I the winner? How well did the judges rate my answers? or Did you receive my application? Questions that we receive such as this will be deleted without reply. Sorry, but due to time limitations, only finalists and winners will be contacted. If you are not contacted personally by OP Loftbed, you are not a finalist.
