    Pelican’s College Scholarship Contest

    It’s hard to imagine while a large portion of the East Coast digs out from major snowstorms, but spring is right around the corner—and so is the April 17, 2015 deadline for Pelican Water’s College Scholarship Contest.

    Held every six months, the Pelican Scholarship Contest supports the nation’s next generation of leaders. We’re looking for students who exemplify Pelican’s commitment to forward-thinking and innovation. It is this innovative spirit that led directly to our industry-leading, environmentally-friendly water softening and full-house filtration systems.

    This April, we’re challenging students to submit ways to encourage a greater sense of urgency about water conservation in young people, along with new marketing slogans that could be used to highlight the new campaign. Awards include $1,500 for the first-place finalist, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third place. Runners up will receive a free countertop drinking filter and four sports bottles, to help stay hydrated with purer, cleaner water during those all-night study sessions.

    In addition to the essay, applicants for the scholarship will need to submit high school or university transcripts with GPAs of 3.5 or higher and a letter of recommendation. Applicants must be legal residents of the United States and currently enrolled full-time at an accredited US university. Full rules for the contest are available on our scholarship page.
