Scholarship for bloggers


No kidding, folks, it’s a $5,000 annual scholarship for bloggers. But you’ll need to apply fast because they plan to announce 10 finalists Oct. 30, and the winner on Nov. 5. (Sorry for the short notice, but I just read about it today in Micro Persuasion…see links for 10-27).

To enter, all you have to do is fill out a short online form and write a short essay (300 words max.). And you need to be a blogger, enrolled full-time in a college or university, with a 3.0 or better GPA.

Here’s what the sponsors, Scholarships Around the US, have to say:

We’re giving away $5,000 this year to a college student who blogs. Our scholarship is awarded annually. We believe that everyone deserves a shot at a decent education. And we love bloggers. Not for the least of reasons, because we blog, and one of the founders of this site makes a living as a blogger.

Go for it!
