Although the costs of attending college are expensive these days, scholarships can be a huge help for college-bound high school seniors. To assist seniors on their college adventure, Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs has announced they are now accepting submissions for their 2019 Open Mind Scholarship award.
How Have Books Influenced Your Life?
Each year, Northshire Bookstore awards one college-bound high school senior from New York State and one from Vermont a $1,000 scholarship to help them pay for college. According to a recent press release, the bookstore’s Open Mind Scholarship “honors the diversity of thought, feelings, information and perspectives found in books, as well as the power of books to change people’s lives.”
If you’re interested in entering, all you need to do is write about how a particular book has exposed you to something new or impacted your life. This essay can be up to one page long, and the submission deadline is March 1st, 2019.
