Essay Contest College Scholarship Requirements & How to Apply

Many people do not realize that rural youth are more at risk than teens who grow up in larger cities and more populated areas. At Blaze Wifi, we want to help at-risk rural teens learn how to use Internet technology in healthy and productive ways that will help prepare them for the future and the demands of the current US job market and workforce. Writing, blogging and sharing thoughts and ideas online is one of the best ways for rural students living in remote areas of the United States to connect to the outside world, expand their knowledge base and participate in a large and active online community.

We offer this scholarship with the sincere hope that the winner will return to their hometown after graduation and help develop rural and underserved towns and cities in America.

To apply for the Blaze Wifi Rural Students Scholarship Program, write an in-depth blog post answering the following question:

How has having Internet access helped you or someone you know develop as a young person and student growing up in a rural community?

Publish an original personal essay of no fewer than 600 and no more than 1,000 words in length on any blog or website by the application deadline date (see below).

In the body of your essay, include a link back to the official Blaze Wifi website (www.blazewifi.com). Look here for more information on how to create an HTML hyperlink.

If you don't have a personal blog already, you can start a free blog quickly and easily here.

OVERSEAS PRESS CLUB FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS/FELLOWSHIPS

 

Graduate and undergraduate students, studying at North American colleges and universities or Americans studying at foreign universities, who aspire to become foreign correspondents, are invited to apply for one of fifteen scholarships/fellowships to be awarded by the Overseas Press Club Foundation.

 

From among those chosen for OPC Foundation recognition, the Foundation selects at least nine scholars and pays travel and living expenses for them to intern at foreign bureaus at such leading news organization as the Associated Press, Reuters, GlobalPost, Wall Street Journal and Forbes and at foreign English-language media companies like the South China Morning Post and Khmer Times.  Students win either a $2,000 grant or funding for their overseas experience.  In many cases, winning a prestigious OPC Foundation award has helped launch careers.  Winners are also invited to join the Overseas Press Club family.  They are encouraged to network and keep the organization informed of their career moves. 

 

The judges require that applicants submit a Cover Letter, Resume and Writing Sample.  The applicant’s name and school should appear at the top of each page.  The Writing Sample of approximately 500 words should concentrate on an area of the world or an international issue that is in keeping with the applicant’s interest.  It can be in the form of a news story, analysis, or essay.  Judges respond best to entries that show a journalist's perspective or initiative. Recent winners have written on such diverse topics as the sink-hole crisis in the coal areas of northern China, the plight of Syrian refugees in Cairo, and remittance networks that retard growth in Burkina Faso.  Applicants are also encouraged to submit essays showing a strong understanding of, or interest in, global economic issues such as trade, finance, emerging markets, immigration or environmental impacts.  The substance of an essay may have appeared in an individual's previously published work but should be reformatted to meet the requirements of the application. Do not send a clip or URL. 

 

The Cover Letter should be autobiographical in nature addressing such questions as how the applicant developed an interest in this particular part of the world, or how he or she would use the scholarship to further journalistic ambitions.  The judges respond well to applications showing strong reporting skills, color, and understanding or passion. 

 

Winners will be contacted in December so that arrangements can be made for them to attend the Foundation Scholarship Luncheon in February 2015 in New York City at the Foundation's expense.  Recipients are expected to attend.  The results will be posted on the website in mid-December.

 

Applicants do not have to be US citizens.  Applications may be sent by mail, fax or email.   Please choose one.  Email is preferred (Word or PDF).

2015 TRUCK ACCIDENT INJURY SCHOLARSHIP

The attorneys of Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable are pleased to offer our first annual scholarship for college students who are survivors of truck accidents and have overcome their injuries while pursuing an education.

Every year we dedicate a portion of our fees to truck safety and truck accident prevention. This year we have also created a truck accident injury scholarship for the survivors of truck accidents.

Our attorneys help people injured in truck accidents. We want to lend a hand to those who have survived and who are demonstrating resolve and determination to rebuild their lives. We also want to recognize individual acts of heroism and hard work, as this scholarship serves as an important reminder that each and every person injured in a truck accident is a person, not a number or a claim. Today, the trucking industry often puts profits ahead of safety. When personal injuries and pain and suffering are given average dollar settlement values, we lose sight of what it means when someone is hurt in a serious crash and how drastically a life can be changed.

Our annual scholarship of $500 will be awarded to one applicant in 2015.

Eligibility and selection criteria

Applicants must:

Selection is based on the overall strength of the application and how that applicant has overcome the challenges he or she has faced from being injured in a truck accident.

Application requirements

Application deadline: December 31, 2014

Applicants must submit the following items:

How to apply
