The Resolve to Evolve Scholarship (R2E) is about more than just making resolutions - it’s about making suggestions for change and furthering our own evolution. The idea behind R2E is to urge young people to offer workable solutions to problems facing the country, whether that’s the state of higher education today or the current administration’s tasks for the future, rather than pointing fingers or finding fault with a given administration or organization. The winners receive college scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 and also have their essays forwarded to officials who have the power to potentially act upon the winning essays’ suggestions.
From 2008 to 2010, Scholarships.com offered scholarships to students planning to pursue careers in 13 different areas of study. The Scholarships.com "Fund Your Future" Area of Study College Scholarships were based on just a handful of criteria: citizenship, college major, year of attendance and a brief scholarship essay. Applicants were asked to describe what influenced them to pursue a career in their intended major and winners were chosen based on essay responses of 250 to 350 words.
Though Scholarships.com no longer offers the Area of Study Scholarships, we still seek to help ambitious, innovative and compassionate students further their educations and achieve their college goals by listing numerous major-based awards in our database.
