The Vegetarian Resource Group awards two $5,000 scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors who are vegetarians and who have promoted vegetarianism within their school or community.
To apply for one of these unique scholarships, students must write an original essay that includes details about their experiences as a vegetarian. Topics covered must include information such as: why the applicant became a vegetarian, how he or she has promoted vegetarianism, personal definition of vegetarianism, information about foods and restaurants he or she would recommend to others, and more.
In addition to the essay, scholarship hopefuls must submit answers to a series of questions about themselves and their backgrounds, high school transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. Applications must be postmarked on or before February 20.
