National Debt Relief Scholarship

For 2017, National Debt Relief is offering a scholarship for college students and high school seniors. National Debt Relief is a leading debt relief company that helps consumers who need help with their unsecured debt. Many consumers think their only options for debt relief are credit counseling, debt consolidation loans or bankruptcy. But National Debt Relief wants consumers to know there is another option. This option can help consumers resolve their debt for a fraction of what they owe and help them avoid bankruptcy.

National Debt Relief wants to get the word out about their program and is sponsoring this scholarship to help build awareness with the younger generations while they are just getting their start on their financial lives. Therfore, we would like you to write about options for debt consolidation. And while debt settlement is not exactly debt consolidaton, it does consolidate a consumer's debt into one monthly payment they can afford. The program has helped thousands of clients resolve billions of dollars in unsecured debt and provided a brigther financial future.

In your essay make sure you address the fact that there is no one size fits all program that will work for every consumer's situation. Each consumer's financial situation is unique so no program can possibly work for all consumers. That is why it is important to learn about all options including debt consolidation loans, credit counseling, bankruptcy and debt negotiation. Keep in mind there are also review sites that can help make the job of finding a reputable company easier. You can check out our top rating on TopTenReviews.
