Studying in a college can be hard due to various reasons. For one, funding your college studies can be a great concern due to the increasing prices of tuition and school materials. Fortunately, through taking up an online college course, you can now be spared from some of the financial burdens of studying in a college such as lodging expenses. To make things better, there are also numerous scholarships out there that you can apply for in order to fund your college education.
UNIGO is an educational service provider that provides students with what they need in order to reach what they want to reach. Particularly, UNIGO gives students access to educational materials such as online lessons, online classes, and exercises. In line with this, the organization also believes that all the students deserve access to quality education which is why UNIGO also provides numerous student grants for everybody. Some of the scholarships can be won through creative essays but one of the more serious ones is the Education Matters Scholarship.
The UNIGO Education Matters Scholarship is a $5000 award given to a deserving student in order to help him/her through college. As the name suggests, the recipient of the scholarship will be determined through his/her response to the question of how college education matters to him/her. The applicant must answer this question through an essay not exceeding 250 words. More specifically, the student must concretely answer the question: “What would you say to someone who thinks education doesn’t matter, or that college is a waste of time and money?” The entry must be grammatically outstanding and written in English.
Winners will be selected based on the following criteria: 25% for creativity, 25% for originality, 25% for writing ability, and the last 25% present will be based on the overall appeal of the essay.
In order to be eligible to apply for the scholarship, you must be a student accepted to an accredited university taking up an online college course or online classes. The scholarship application is only opened to legal residents of the United States aged 13 and above. The scholarship is sponsored by UNIGO; hence, any applicant who has an affiliation with any of the members of the said organization is prohibited from joining the contest.
All entries must be submitted by November 30, 2018 and only one application entry will be allowed per person. All applications will be sent through UNIGO’s official website at https://www.unigo.com/scholarships/our-scholarships/education-matters-scholarship/. In the same website, you Amy access the rest of the rules and details regarding the scholarship.
