A pretty easy scholarship from InkFarm.com. If you could use $1,000 for school, check out what’s required and apply!
Inkfarm.com, an online store offering products for printers, fax machines or all-in-one-units, has a Digital Innovation Scholarship awarding $1,000 to graduate students, undergrads and high school seniors planning to enroll in college. Simply write a 500 word essay detailing your “personal experience with online entrepreneurship or the importance of new ideas in the digital realm” and send it in by the deadline, August 12, to the email listed. If selected, your essay could be published on the website. Additional information like name, address and phone number are also required, but in your response to the “Where you heard about us” question, don’t just give the generic “Internet” answer. This site does have a ton of information so may seem like the internet in its entirety, but it’s really not (I’m too modest, I know).
There’s no application for this scholarship, all that’s required is the essay concerning online entrepreneurship. You can discuss how the internet is a great place to start a business as there are limitless ideas out there. When answering the question, it might be a good idea to mention current events (e.g. Facebook acquiring Instagram, cloud computing, etc) that’ll help make your entry stand-out with relevancy. You’ll want to leave a lingering impression on the minds of the judges. And although you could just simply type the essay in the email that you send, they prefer that you attach a word document. You can find more Q&A in the comment section of the blog post on their site.
