Resolve to Evolve Scholarship Winners

The R2E scholarship consists of three parts: an essay answering one of two questions, a shorter, more informal response that demonstrates why attending college is important to you and a brief outline of your academic and career goals, and a reference letter that specifically addresses your potential and provides support for your receipt of scholarship assistance. The scholarship is open to all United States citizens who are registered users of the Scholarships.com web site and who attend or will attend a U.S. Department of Education accredited college, university or vocational school at the time the prize is awarded. Visit our site for more specifics on criteria determining your eligibility for the award.

Our R2E winners have plausible ideas for tough issues rather than looking to displace blame for the world’s ills. We’d like to introduce you to the applicants we felt had essays that were not only well-crafted, but were thoughtful and persuasive in addressing the topics at hand.

Please be aware that the views and opinions of authors of the following essays published on Scholarships.com do not necessarily reflect those of Scholarships.com or its affiliates.
