The Vegetarian Resource Group Vegetarian Scholarships
The Vegetarian Resource Group will award two $5000 vegetarian scholarships in 2014!
Eligibility: Eligible contestants are graduating US high school seniors who have promoted vegetarianism in their schools and/or communities. Applicants will be judged on having shown compassion, courage and a strong commitment to promoting a peaceful world through a vegetarian diet and lifestyle.
Due Date: Applications must be postmarked by February 20, 2014.
Application: The application is rather time-consuming, so don’t save it for February 19th! A major component is an essay that addresses 16 specific points such as your definition of vegetarianism, why you are vegetarian, and how you have promoted vegetarianism in your community. You’ll also need to include three recommendation letters, photocopies of your report cards, and other materials. Download the application at vrg.org/student/scholar.htm.
