Since it was created, the internet has both helped and complicated the rise of entrepreneurship. How would you leverage the internet to develop a business? In addition, how would you manage the increased competition and other complexities that an online marketplace produces?”

Tips for Scholarship Submission Success

  1. You should double check for typos and grammatical errors. Remember, not everything will be underlined in red!
  2. Your essay should stay on the topic provided. Other topics will not be considered.
  3. Use real life examples if you have them. We’d love to hear how this has impacted you directly.
  4. Your essay should be roughly 500-700 words.”

My point is, look within the Additional Scholarships for April and Additional Scholarships for May.

Also, on the left hand side, search for Scholarships by Category; such as Adult Learners, The Arts, Ethnicity, LGBT, Middle School, Military, STEM, Special Needs, and Study Abroad.
