Smart Touch Energy is excited to offer two $500 scholarship offers each year. This scholarship is open to all US residents, regardless of major. All you need to do is write an essay on one of the topics below, and then you'll be entered to be considered to win. Smart Touch will pick one winner in the spring and one winner in the fall, every year.
To apply to the Smart Touch Energy Scholarship, pick one of the following topics and write an essay on it:
The essay should be between 500 and 700 words, with proper grammar and punctuation. Winners will be chosen on creativity and quality. Whatever topic question chosen must be answered in full. You can choose any style, from inspirational, creative, personal, humorous, serious, or anything else.
Essays turned in must be written by the person submitting them. You may use quotes, but no quote may be longer than two lines, and all quotes must have their source given. Don't rely too much on quotes, we want to hear your original thoughts.
Give your essay a title, make sure your name is on it, and save it as a PDF or Word Document. Then email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by one of the due dates below:
This scholarship happens twice a year, ever year. That means if you miss one deadline, you can still turn it in to be considered for the next one.
This scholarship is eligible to all current US residents who are taking or will be taking college courses in their next semester. So if you're in college now and taking classes next semester, you're eligible. Or, if you're in high school now but will be taking college courses next semester, you're also eligible. And last, if you're not in school at all currently but have registered for college to next semester, you're eligible too.
Smart Touch Energy will read every entry and choose the one that best answers the question. If you are the winner, we will contact you through the email address that you used to submit the essay. If you do not respond within one month of contact, a different winner may be chosen.
Smart Touch Energy will send the $500 scholarship directly to the school that you will be attending. The winner will need to be able to provide a valid student ID and proof of enrollment, as well as the name and address of the college or university, which needs to be in the United States. The $500 will only be allowed to be used toward tuition and cannot be transferred for any other reason or to any other student. The offer is for a one-time use and cannot be renewed.
One essay per student. If your essay is not chosen, you may submit again for the following semester.
