I wanted to let everybody know about two essay competitions and other possible money sources.
1. SuperCollege Scholarship
This essay is open to high school students, undergraduates, and graduates. You write a less than 1,000 word essay. Online submissions must be registered by July 31, 2009. Awards range from $500-$2500 dollars.
The money for this scholarship comes from Gen & Kelly Tanabe, author of such books as The Ultimate Scholarship Book 2009, How to Write a Winning Scholarship Essay and 501 Ways for Adult Students to Pay for College.
