Blogs have become a fixture in the Web universe, a favorite way for individuals to express their feelings on topics great and small. If you're a post-secondary student in the U.S. and have a blog, there's a scholarship contest just for you.
The Daniel Kovach Scholarship Foundation is offering its second annual Blogging Scholarship contest. The winner gets $10,000, up from $5,000 last year. The process for selecting the winner differs from most other scholarships. The application consists of a few pieces of personal information, GPA, your blog URL, and an essay with a 300-word limit. Applicants can chose essay themes from among the 5 topics presented.
The deadline for applications is Saturday 6 October. CollegeScholarships.org will select and announce the 10 finalists by Monday 8 October. At that point, the public votes to select the winner from among the 10 finalists. The winners will be announced on Sunday 28 October.
