This isn’t a writing scholarship but it was so unusual I had to include this one on my blog, especially since I am a vegetarian. I posted this one early so that if you are a vegan or vegetarian you could start working on applying for this great opportunity. Check on the amount of the cash prize. Pretty impressive huh?
Are you a vegetarian who promotes the lifestyle? Three high school seniors graduating in spring 2016 who have promoted vegetarianism in their communities or schools will be awarded The Vegetarian Resource Group College Scholarships in the amount of $10,000 (one award) and $5,000 (two awards) in 2016.
. Qualifying applications and essays become the property of the sponsoring Vegetarian Resource Group. Applicants are judged on courage, compassion and strong commitment to promoting peace through a vegan lifestyle. Vegetarians do not consume fowl, meat or fish. One $10,000 and Two $5,000 scholarships are awarded. Go to the website for complete details atwww.vrg.org/student/scholar.htm.
The deadline to apply is February 20, 2016
