$7,500 We The Students Essay Contest


April 15, 2022

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!

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.

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! :)
