$7,500 We The Students Essay Contest


April 15, 2021

Awards Available: See Description

  • Scholarship Description
  • To truly explore this question in an essay that is between 500 -800 words, you’ll need to go beyond "dictionary definitions," and express your understanding and reasoning about the connection between these two principles. This reasoning involves a combination of observation, experience, and some pretty "big ideas." What does it take to understand them? To build toward and maintain them? To see them with regard to each other? Why is this relationship important?

    We encourage you to bring emotion, creativity, specific examples, and well-researched facts into what you write. A good essay will demonstrate how equality and justice are not just abstract ideas but are part of the actions and choices of people every day.

    We genuinely want to know how you would answer the question – what is the relationship between Equality and Justice?

    Deadline is April 15th

I am so excited about this scholarship! I learned so many new things while writing this and came to many new realizations which I expressed in my essay!

Sydni B  on 2/7/2016 11:47:15 PM

I am so excited about this opportunity. I will be a Political Science major in the fall and I a ecstatic as a registered United States citizen I will be able to help impact our country's politics. Thank you for this opportunity!

I hope that my awareness was heightened by completing this essay. I have been more involved with my city and county community projects this school year and am starting to see some of these atrocities to our freedoms committed in my own back yard. I intend to have the guts to speak out now that I am of legal age.

This might be a good oppurtunity.

Actually, Brandon F., the actual "Bill of Rights Institute" scholarship does not review these third-party sourced comments for consideration of the actual scholarship winner.

Thank you Aubrie and Jason for expressing your personal view on this essay rather than saying why you think you deserve it over others. It's frustrating to see people compete for sympathy and/or attention rather than relying on their own skills to get them to the place they think they should be. Thanks again!

It would be a real honor to receive this scholarship I really want to be a successful individual and help the Native Americans in Monument Valley, UT.

Monique B  on 1/24/2016 10:13:16 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I really want to have the opportunity to have higher education and to be successful in life. My single parent mother and I cannot afford college tuition fees due to our family low income. Thank you for your consideration.

Took a little while to complete! But I hope it was worth it! :)

I love this scholarship essay.

University to Give New Students Free Laptops for Filing the FAFSA

April 6, 2021

by Izzy Hall

The coronavirus made laptops a necessity for college students. Where before students without personal computers or laptops could use on-campus computers and provided software to meet the technological needs of their courses, the shift last spring to online classes necessitated that students have a stable internet connection and a compatible device. While the majority of students were able to meet this requirement, according to a study by EDUCASE, some students found themselves without a modern laptop that could run the most up-to-date browser, use RAM-heavy software or keep up even with reliable high-speed Wi-Fi. One university has announced a unique remedy for this technical situation. [...]

The Longest Wait List Ever? What to Expect

March 31, 2021

by Izzy Hall

When students hear back from colleges in the coming weeks, they may not get a firm acceptance or rejection, but rather get put on the wait list. Getting waitlisted is a normal part of the college admissions process, but some experts say that this year the wait list could turn into the longest it has ever been. A combination of the effects of the coronavirus on colleges, changes in application policies and an increase in applications at top colleges may contribute to a difficult wait list period. [...]
