Essay-Driven Scholarship For Maryland Students

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - For some students, the essay is the most grueling part of applying to a scholarship.

Intelligence is key, but intellect is a must. If your writing skills are exceptional, this scholarship is for you.

"It's not a question of what your grades were or a question of financial need. This is strictly an essay contest," said Bill Baker, President of the local Maryland chapter of the American Mensa Society.

The scholarship is open to people of all ages, in all counties in the state, except Montgomery and PG county. Again the requirements are minimal, its mostly how you appear on paper.

"What we're looking for is a description of what you've done in the past, what you're doing now and what your future plans are as far as your career and your vocation, and how you intend to achieve that," said Baker.

Keep in mind, all of that information has to be said in 550 words, or less!

Scholarship applications will be accepted between September 15th and January 15th. To find more details, go to delmarvaed.org.
