Scholarships around the US has announced a yearly $5,000 scholarship for a blogger in post-secondary in the USA. A pretty sweet sounding deal if they pay up. I guess we will have to wait and see.
If you are interested here are the details:
Are You a Blogger?
We are proud to annouce the launch of The Blogging Scholarship. UPDATE: We are offering bloggers a $5,000 scholarship annually.
- Your blog must contain unique and interesting information about you and/or things you are passionate about. No spam bloggers please!!!
- You must be enrolled in a college in the United States;
- 3.0 minimum GPA;
- Enrolled full-time in post-secondary education; and
- If you win, you must be willing to allow us to list your name and blog on this page. We want to be able to say we knew you before you became a well educated, rich, and famous blogging legend.
I would love to see more institutions see blogging as a good thing and reward their students for it, especially in courses of writing, public relations, advertising, web design or development. Good luck to all those that enter.
