The Sure Oak Be Awesome Scholarship

Our Scholarship

Everyone here at Sure Oak works to our 5 core values: Be awesome, maximize your opportunities, always be the first to give, seek to improve everything and be curious, explore often!

Implementing these values every day has given us the opportunity to build incredible relationships with each other internally, as well as with our clients, globally.

We don’t only wish to embody these values in the workplace, this is how we live our lives. We love to work with others that also express these values, and we’re proud to have been in a position to already have awarded two scholarships to promising students that share the same ethos.

Are you an awesome student? Do you relate to our 5 core values? If you can discuss how your personal values will help you reach your goal in a well-written and considered essay, you could be our third winner!
