  1. This sounds like a cool opportunity. I wonder about the age restriction: is it necessary? Who knows! $5000 should certainly help the majority of students with expenses.

  2. I kind of have two questions about this scholarship, 1. I fit all the requirements for this, but my college ended in april so technically, I just completed my freshman year, can I still apply? Also, is there anyway we could see the previous winners’ essays? Just asking because I started mine and I’m afraid it’s a bit too…college-y? Meaning, I’ve got a works cited page and everything, I’m referencing research and articles and personal experience, and I’m not sure if that’s what they wanted
    thanks for your help 🙂
