Rank-it.ca College Scholarship 2022

The world’s been moving fast. Back when the TV was first invented, entire families congregated around them to watch their programs before the stations turned off for the night. Nowadays, everyone has a mini-computer in their pocket with 24/7 internet access. CDs and DVDs were once considered the future of home entertainment. Now, most computers aren’t even built with disk readers. 

It’s almost impossible to guess what will be useful to future generations and what will be obsolete. Here at Rank-it.ca, we are obsessed with new products and trends and we’re always curious to see what comes and goes and what stands the test of time. 

If you’re up to the challenge, Rank-it.ca is offering a $500 scholarship to a student enrolled in an American or Canadian post-secondary educational institution. To be considered, write an essay of up to 500 words, telling us what consumer trend you think is here to stay.

Prime Scholarship

The demand for nurses has been on the rise for over a decade. If we look at 2008-2010 alone, the R.N. workforce grew by 25%, while the number of LPNs grew by 15.5%. The demand for skilled nurses will continue to rise as baby boomers retire. To push demand even higher, nearly 33% of current nurses are fifty years of age or older so their retirement is not far off. Training is very thorough for nurses because no two situations are the same. Hopeful nurses must take different courses, with college level programs existing at both two-year colleges and universities. Programs encompass varying levels of nursing education, each requiring different coursework and experience. We understand that it can become expensive so whether you’re aiming to be an R.N. or an LPN, you should take advantage of this scholarship.
