Smart Rain, a leader in the smart irrigation industry, is excited to announce the launch of the Smart Rain National Essay/Video Scholarship Award.

Selection Process and Notification

Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of independent judges. The winner will be announced by September 5th for fall semester and January 5th for spring semester. The scholarship panel will also notify winners directly via email.

Additional Details

The awarded scholarship funds are to be used for tuition only. Once a winner is selected, they must first send a receipt for the semester’s tuition. Once this has taken place, a check will be written to the recipient’s enrolled school to fund academic costs. The scholarship is non-renewable and is only good for a one-semester cycle. Recipients are eligible to receive the scholarship only once during their lifetime.
