Spring 2014 Scholarship Topic

The MyBookBuyer Fall 2014 Scholarship is now open for application!

Your task is to write about a tip to share with college students. Imagine you are writing an article or blog post for a college themed blog. You can share an experience that taught you a valuable lesson as a student or describe something you’ve learned throughout your time as a student that would be useful to others. Some general topics may include: food/health/wellness, finance/saving money, study habits, nightlife, sports, etc. Be creative! Your response should be between 1000-1500 words and should cite two credible sources. For example, if you are writing about ‘How to Save Money in College’ you may want to reference money.cnn.com, if you are writing about ‘How to Stay Fit in College’ you may want to reference collegerecipes.com. Be sure to include links at the bottom of your response! These should be articles or specific pages. (See example below)
