The Blogging Scholarship Published 2007-09-13 under

If you or someone you know is a college student that blogs, check out The Blogging Scholarship. At $10,000, this scholarship is worth a look.

The criteria for submission (from the website) is as follows:

  • Your blog must contain unique and interesting information about you and/or things you are passionate about. (No spam bloggers)
  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
  • Currently attending full-time in post-secondary education in the United States
  • 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.

Besides the substantial reward being offered to a lucky college blogger, I really like the rational behind this program:

We believe passion is important. As the world gets more competitive, those who are passionate about what they do, and work close to their passions, will be able to become and stay successful even as technology and automation eat away at many business models. Those who are willing to share their experiences with the world help make the world a better place, even if most bloggers only consider blogging a hobby.

We believe those who freely express themselves are far more likely to find their true passions and connect with people to bring on large scale social change.
