The real chance to make your dreams come true: $1000 scholarship opportunity from the Real Mattress Reviews
Real Mattress Reviews believes in education. We believe in giving a real chance to the real talent to succeed in life. I have been in the mattress industry for over eight years. During this time, I have owned the one-person show where I sell, deliver and test mattresses. I know how difficult it can be to shop for mattresses for your new home or your new bed. I know of people who have ended up buying three different mattresses in just his or her years because of daily sleeping problems. There is nothing about mattresses the Real Mattress Reviews does not know right now. That is why we have interesting and informative videos for our customers who can try before they can buy.
You can help us!
You can send in your ideas about mattress technologies and the importance of mattresses in our daily lives. You can help us create a review system that is unbiased and accurate. A good idea can help people make great buying decisions and can help hundreds of customers save thousands of dollars while shopping for mattresses. There is no ONE mattress perfect for everyone, so we need you to tell us how someone can find the best mattress for him or her and their significant other.
Who can apply for our yearly scholarship?
All applicants must be –
- Currently in high school (seniors attending school in the USA) or college students in accredited post secondary educational institutions in the USA.

How can you apply for the scholarship?
The application process for this USD 1000 scholarship is quite fun and unique. Create a video telling us about yourself, your interests and more. Make sure it is less than 10 minutes long (or short).
You can make it humorous, serious or factual. You can include daily pathos of daily office going crowds and their fights with their mattresses. Or you can animate your characters to express your unique ideas and thoughts on the subject.
While you are at it, do address the following points –
- How do you think digital marketing and online shopping is affecting mattress buying choices of the current generation?
- How is the new online selling process affecting the older companies with land-based businesses? How can they adapt to the new online selling trend without losing old customers?
- How can you help these mattress companies keep up with the latest trends in both sales and production of these mattresses?
