Fashion Brands Levi’s and JCPenney Are Offering Two $50,000 College Scholarships

Levi’s® and JCPenney have teamed up for the second year in a row to offer two college scholarship packages of $50,000 each during the companies’ tuition sweepstakes. Each of these scholarships are fully transferable, allowing the winner to choose who receives the scholarship. Winners can choose to use the scholarship for themselves, their friends, their children or even their grandkids.

This special campaign came about as a way to bring higher education accessible to others as well as to increase opportunities for lifetime success.

The tuition sweepstakes began July 21, 2010 and ends on September 6, 2010. Anyone over the age of 13 is encouraged to enter by texting “TUITION” to 45481, visiting www.LevisTuition.com or going to the JCPenney Facebook page at www.facebook.com/JCPenney.

The two grand-prize scholarship winners will each receive a fully transferable deposit of $50,000 to a 529 account, an educational savings plan that helps families set aside funds. Scholarship winners will also receive an additional $20,000 to cover any taxes incurred.
