Scholarship Name: Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship
Description: Are you a non-traditional student, going back to school after a few years off – or perhaps starting your degree for the first time after earning a lifetime of on-the-job experience? Scholarships.com’s Resolve to Evolve Essay Scholarship is perfect for you! Applicants must write a 1,000-word essay answering one of the following two questions:

Do general education requirements add to or detract from the ability to attain a useful and meaningful college degree? How can colleges both prepare students for careers in their intended fields and produce well-rounded graduates?


After an election filled with calls for change, what changes are most important for America to undergo, and what steps must be taken to make these changes?

You must also write a shorter, information essay addressing the question:

What do you feel has been or will be your biggest obstacle in attending college, and how do you think your degree will help you achieve your goals?

Applicants must submit at least one letter of reference as well. Eligible candidates must be registered users of Scholarship.com, and be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate degree or a full- or part-time graduate degree, or be a non-traditional/returning student who plans to enroll full- or part-time at an accredited college, university or vocational school.
