Here’s an interesting new scholarship opportunity for students with a rural background who are interested in technology. The Blaze Wifi Rural Students Scholarship is open to all HS Seniors and college students in the USA with good grades (at least a 3.0 grade point average). This is a really easy way for college students to get some extra money to pay for college. As we all know, going to college can be expensive, so students are wise to take advantage of every little bit of help they can get along the way!
EASY ONLINE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR RURAL STUDENTS
To enter the contest, all you have to do is write an original essay of more than 600 words in length about how the internet has helped advance your education. Once you’re done, you have to publish your essay to a free blog site like WordPress (or your own personal blog, if you have one). Once you’ve got your blog up, just send the link where your essay entry is published to enter the essay contest. If your essay wins, you get $500 to help pay for your college tuition, books, or whatever. This sounds like a pretty easy opportunity, so Education Guide readers should definitely enter this contest.
GOOD SCHOLARSHIP FOR ONLINE STUDENTS
Obviously, students from rural areas are probably going to have a leg up in this scholarship contest, but if you can write a moving essay about someone you know (a relative, a friend etc) who grew up in a rural area, then you could still enter and have a chance to win. Personally, I think this scholarship would be a good fit for online students. The whole idea of online education began to give people in rural areas the chance to attend college and earn a degree no matter where they live, so I think online students would have a huge advantage to win this scholarship. There isn’t any age limit, either, so adult students are also welcome to apply for the scholarship.
