$1,000 for Three Sentences? Scholarship of the Week!
Alexis Mattera

Writing three sentences and banking $1,000 to put toward college may seem like a dream but it is indeed a reality with the Three Sentence Essay from Zinch. Though many essay scholarships have word count requirements in the hundreds or thousands, Zinch caps theirs at 280 characters – the equivalent of two Twitter postings – and requires applicants to respond to a prompt that changes on a weekly basis.

All high school and college students (including international students) are eligible to participate so go ahead and check out the prompt, think about it some and submit a concise yet thoughtful answer worthy of $1,000 by midnight tonight. And remember, has thousands more scholarships to choose from…all you have to do is fill out a profile and launch a scholarship search today!

I would compete in gymnastics, which is graceful and serene, like a willow tree blowing in the wind. I would flip through the air like a lemur flipping through the trees. I could control my body like the government controls the people.
