We received a record number of scholarship entries this year and thoroughly enjoyed reading each essay. The winning student, Ms. Emily Taggart, truly captured the way in which language has helped her find and express her voice. A very sincere thank you from all of us at Verbal Ink to all of this year's scholarship applicants!
Each year, Verbal Ink awards a $1500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior or current college freshman. The scholarship is renewable each year for up to four years, provided that the award recipient maintains a 3.0 GPA or equivalent, and completes the minimum number of credit hours required to be a full-time student each academic year.
To be considered for this scholarship, the student must have a cumulative GPA above 3.0, must either be graduating high school or completing his or her first year of college in the spring, and must be enrolled in an accredited two or four year institution of higher learning for the following fall quarter/semester.
As Verbal Ink is a language services company, all interested students must submit a 500-1,000 word essay on the following topic: Share a story about how language has helped you express your voice.
