The Urban Mattress Scholarship
A $2500 merit-based scholarship, awarded annually
The Urban Mattress Scholarship is a $2500 merit-based scholarship awarded once per year for students pursuing higher education with an emphasis on the social sciences, liberal arts, philanthropy, volunteer work, or any other related field.
Urban Mattress locations are each locally owned and operated and we positively impact our communities by giving back 2% of each purchase to local non-profit groups.
We offer competitive pricing and great customer service on the best mattresses available. We’ve changed the mattress buying process from slick and tricky, to honest and fair — and we intend to keep it that way.
