Who Can Apply:
- To be eligible for the scholarship, you must be at least 18 years old on January 31st, 2016, the deadline for submitting entries.
- You must be enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution within the United States or one of its territories. Your school must be accredited by one of the organizations that the U.S. Department of Education recognizes as “reliable authorities concerning the quality of education or training offered by the institutions of higher education […] they accredit.” See the link for more details. (Just about every reputable school in the United States meets this requirement, so you’ll probably be okay. We just want to make sure you aren’t going to Hollywood Upstairs Medical College.)
- The subject of your essay must fall within the parameters of the topic described above, to a reasonable extent.
- Your essay must be written in English, and be no less than 500 words in length (this word count doesn’t include title, name, or any other typical headings). The maximum word count is 1500 words.
