Isle Surf's Standup Paddleboard Scholarship

The idea of how to pay for college can be tough and even daunting for most of us. With some many restrictions on scholarships awarded by universities and colleges, it's no wonder you never thought there would be a scholarship you could obtain.

So what if you didn't have a 4.0 GPA, or belonged to every single extracurricular activity there was offered at your high school. You may not have aced that standardized test and perhaps there are no alumni in your immediate family to win an alumni scholarship.

Isle Surfboards has decided to launch the Isle Surf's Standup Paddleboard Scholarship with little restrictions on who can apply and who can win! We've thrown out all the rules in terms of restrictions according to race, GPA, extracurricular activities, standardized test scores, what you plan to major in (let's be honest, you are probably going to change that anyway), or what your family income is.

So what are we offering?

The Isle Surf's Standup Paddleboard Scholarship is an all-inclusive opportunity from Isle Surfboards for applicants to dig deep into their creative side and just be themselves. We are looking for the best essay response to the given prompt:
