Congratulations to our Scholarship Challenge Winner!

ZipRecruiter is proud to announce the next winner of our Creative Cover Letter Challenge! This month our judges selected Randi Murphy as the recipient of the $1000 prize, for her touching video essay about her experience attending school full time while raising a daughter with complex health issues.

Randi told us the idea came to her while she was studying, and preparing to take her daughter in for another surgery. Her daughter weighed under a pound when she was born, and the medical treatments she’s undergone to remain happy and healthy have been costly. But that hasn’t stopped Randi from maintaining her 4.0 GPA at Frontier Nursing University and pursuing her Master’s degree, while being completely available to her daughter and providing her with only the best hospital care.

Despite the challenges of simultaneously putting her entire self into both school and motherhood, Randi is still passionately pursuing her dream of working internationally as a travel nurse to serve rural villages.

For her winning submission, Randi will be awarded a $1000 scholarship for school.

Congratulations to our winner, and great job to everyone who submitted!
