This scholarship is (obviously) a great opportunity for your students. All they have to do is upload their project (art, photography, video, music, or creative writing) following the prompt available, and submit it to our website–that’s it! No strings attached! We just need to get the word out–and that’s where you come in.
Why are we funding a scholarship?
The reason Honors Grad U was originally started was to provide educational resources to teachers and students in hopes of contributing to the betterment of education (see About page). How else can we better education than by putting our money where our mouth is? Namely: investing in our students!
With this scholarship, we are saying “we believe in you” and to prove it, we’re directly contributing to future leaders through this scholarship. We want to help as many people as possible, which is why we decided to offer $1,000 to five students each (one per category).
How can teachers get the word out?
Students need help to find scholarships and who is better equipped to do that than their teachers, counselors and mentors? We couldn’t think of anyone better, so we have an easy system of sharing in place–all circling around the handouts that we’ve created to catch students’ attention. You can:
- Fill out this form to request an email or mailed letter to be sent to your school for more information
- Put digital copies of the fliers on your school blog, website, or scholarship directory
- Put printed copies tear-away tabs in your classroom, office, or bulletin boards
What are the rules?
Read our full Terms & Conditions here, but the basic gist is that your students must already be accepted to, or attending, an accredited university in pursuit of an associates, bachelors, or graduate degree. There must be one or more years remaining in their education. Obviously, we severely condemn any use of plagiarism.
Best part: students don’t have to have a minimum GPA to apply. In fact, we don’t even look at the GPA. All we look at is what the student creates. This is because we know that grades do not always reflect a student’s potential or ability to contribute to society. This scholarship is open to all students, of all backgrounds and academic standings.
Thanks for your help in spreading the word!
