College Scholarship Scholarship

Congrats Jacob on winning the first scholarship!“We live in such a privileged society, and by sharing with the world what we already have can give people hope for things that they didn’t even know existed.”

Jacob Hola $1,000 College Scholarship Winner

Congratulations, Jacob Hola! Select Blinds is honored to award you with our first annual $1,000 college scholarship! 

Jacob is a premed and accounting major at Utah State University.  In his essay on what he would do to make the world a better place, we were impressed by his insight and ideas on how to spread “knowledge that we already have that can change people’s lives.” 

Read more about how Jacob’s ideas were culled from time spent in rural villages in the Dominican Republic and his plans for implementing them. We think you’ll be as moved as we were by this young innovator (who also had a couple great ideas for enhancing technology for window blinds), and see why he was selected from more than 400 qualifiers for the first $1,000 college scholarship. WTG Jacob!
