LA Tutors Monthly Education Scholarship

LA Tutors believes that it's more than just grades that make a great well-rounded student.  Everyone is creative in his or her own way:  some blog, others curate documentary photography on Instagram that helps us understand the world better, and still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives.  Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us.  Innovation brings together in unique ways our technical skills and our hopes for a better world.

It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship.  In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and life.

LA Tutors is passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion.  In order to achieve this, they have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria.
