"Eve's Addiction is extremely proud to be offering this scholarship to the bright students of this country," said Ray Galeotti, president of "At we like to think of ourselves as more than a sterling silver and cubic zirconia jewelry retailer. We often give to charitable events and fundraisers and are active in our local community as well. It just makes sense to invest in a student who is shining bright in academia."

Eve's Addiction's Scholarship is open to any high school senior, undergraduate or graduate degree student enrolled in a Fall 2013 or Spring 2014 program at any accredited U.S. college or university. One student will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Submission deadline is December 15, 2013. Applicants must complete a 500 word essay on one of two topics:

"Here at Eve's Addiction we put a high emphasis on a college education, but we also know how hard it can be to pay for a degree," Galeotti said. That is why college scholarships for our students are increasingly more important as college tuitions continue to increase.
