Foreclosure.com Scholarship Program:
• Minimum 800 words
• Maximum 2,000
You've likely heard the famous quote before, "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." The
United States housing market can be unpredictable, volatile and cyclical. We've seen recent "ups" like the early
2000s and major "downs" like the Savings & Loan Crisis of the late 1980s and the devastating Foreclosure
Crisis several years ago. Knowing what we now know, what measure(s) would you suggest (or what protections
would you put in place) to prevent another housing disaster that would preserve homeownership and ultimately
the national economy? Consider all levels of the market, including consumer (home buyers / sellers / owners),
lenders (banks) and government (policies / bills / programs) as you map out an original, forward-thinking plan
to avoid (at the very least minimize) mistakes from the past. Or, conversely, is another housing disaster simply
inevitable? Provide factual evidence (references are strongly encouraged) to support your original plan /
Award: Top award is $5,000. Second through fifth place will receive $1,000 each
