College Scholarships for Homeschoolers – Nov. ’14

The theme this month is science!  If science is your thing, here are a couple of college scholarships for homeschoolers that you should check out.

Science Sleuth 

college scholarships for homeschoolers

A fun way to earn dollars for college!

The premise behind this scholarship is to get more girls involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)  BUT, you don’t have to be a girl to participate in the scholarship opportunity – you just need to have some friends who want to do this with you!   You earn a chance to win $10,000 by playing and sharing Science Sleuth – a multi-player, interactive texting game where you and three friends must use your science skills to gather clues and solve the case of the missing mascot.  That’s it – no essays, no minimum GPA.  The contest deadline is January 9, 2015 – so happy sleuthing!

DuPont  Challenge 

This is an essay competition for students age 13 and up.  Students are asked to submit an original essay between 700 and 1000 words on one of these four categories:  Food, Energy, Protection, or Innovation.  Start by going to DuPont’s website for information in these areas, then add a little of your own research to come up with an award-winning submission.  Winners will be named in both junior (6th-8th grades) and senior (9th-12th) categories and prizes range from $200 to $5000 in savings bonds – plus all-expense-paid trips to Kennedy Space Center and Walt Disney World.  The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2015.

~to your success!
