Some Background on LDSBookstore.com:
The founder of LDSBookstore.com, Brandon Young, had the idea of selling CTR rings on the internet while serving a mission in Madrid, Spain. It was very difficult for members of the church find products that helped them share and express their beliefs like those living in other parts of the world. With encouragement from members in the areas he served, he became determined to start the business. Since returning home in 2005, the business has grown from an idea, to a business that employs 12 people, and sells products around the world from Australia to Zimbabwe, and of course, Spain.
The scholarship will require basic information, including educational information.
It is open to full-time students, new students and/or graduating high school seniors enrolled in any college or university for the Fall 2016 semester.
Eight finalists will be selected by LDSBookstore.com staff. Winners will be determined by social-media voting. First place will be awarded a $1000 scholarship, a $500 scholarship will be awarded to the first runner-up.
