2018 scholarship winner has been announced. See below for more details.

Down To Five is a website dedicated to helping you find the best products and advice in a certain category by narrowing your choices or steps down to five, such as our potty training guide for boys and girls. We also provide informative buyer’s guides on diverse products like record players, memory foam mattresses and neck pain pillows.

2018 Scholarship Winner

The winner of our 2018 Down To Five scholarship program is Alexses Cabrera Fimbres from California State University Long Beach.

“I am a fourth year at California State University Long Beach. I am currently pursuing a degree in American Studies. My goal is to pursue a career in Student Development in Higher Education. I hope to one day become a college advisor. I have had the tremendous opportunity of being a student advisor for incoming freshman and transfers at my university. Hundreds of students apply for this position and only twenty are selected every year. Ultimately, this is one of my greatest achievements.”

Congratulations again, Alexses! We’re truly proud to have you as the recipient of our 2018 Down To Five scholarship!
