Luck of the Draw: Contest & Sweepstakes Scholarships

What’s great about contests and sweepstakes? They’re essentially scholarships that take very little time or effort and everyone has the opportunity to win.

This scholarship category levels playing field for all students who enter because everyone adheres to the same entry criteria.

Many even offer multiple entries if you choose to take advantage of them (which you should).

To help better organize your scholarship and internship search, please note that the following scholarships for writers are listed according to deadline, with the earliest deadline appearing at the top of the page. Deadlines that vary will appear at the bottom of each list.
