AND THE WINNER IS...

After reviewing many qualified submissions to the Essay Contest Scholarship, we are proud to announce the 2019 winner: Ms. Cora Ballek

Cora is freshman at the University of California, Davis. In her essay, she examined the effects of bamboo, hardwood, and cork flooring on humanity’s carbon footprint. Read her winning entry here.

At Ambient Bamboo Floors, we care about more than just providing customers with the highest quality, eco-friendly bamboo flooring -- we also care about helping the youth in our community reach their goals, specifically in academics, providing education regarding the environment. This is why we are investing in the education of the next generation vis-a-vis a great scholarship opportunity. We want to help one student who shows an interest in sustainability by providing funds to pay for tuition, books, or other school-related expenses via our annual merit-based scholarship award.

What to Know About Our Scholarship Program

Any student who wishes to apply for our scholarship program must be enrolled at an accredited 2-year or 4-year college for the current academic year and must be a resident of the United States.

All candidates will have to fill out the application at the bottom of this page, and write a 2,000 word (minimum) essay on one of the following topics:

Evaluate the ecological role bamboo has played throughout the course of human history and determine to what extent, if any, bamboo will contribute to a more sustainable planet.

Analyze the environmental benefits of using bamboo flooring vs other options as it applies to a reduction of humanity's carbon footprint.

Upon receipt of each application, our team will carefully review the essay and select the student who provides a thoughtful and insightful response, showing their true views on sustainability and how bamboo flooring can make a difference in helping the planet.

If selected, the winning student will receive $1,200 in scholarship funds. Like previously mentioned, these funds have to be used to pay for qualified expenses, including but not limited to tuition, books, and on-campus housing for the current academic year.

Scholarship programs are a great way for students to lessen their student loan debt and tuition costs, helping them focus more on their studies. When students apply to our scholarship program, they're applying for the chance to receive assistance with rising college expenses and interact with a leading company in the bamboo flooring industry.

Our Ambient Bamboo Floors team is excited to carefully review all of the applications we receive for our scholarship program and make a difference in one student's academic career.

And why do customers loveour products?

Well, bamboo flooring is a great alternative for hardwood flooring. Not only is it a more cost-effective option, but it's less harmful to the environment. In just five to seven years, both bamboo and eucalyptus are fully matured without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. And after we harvest the bamboo, the same plant grows back! We don't have to take up more space by planting more bamboo.

Our company wants to help the environment and we're excited to help others who care about the environment, too. So if you're a student looking for a great scholarship opportunity, fill out an application for the Ambient Bamboo Floors Scholarship today.
