Education is expensive, especially in the United States. That is why scholarships are important to those studying to help pay for their education years. One such scholarship is coming from Apex Minecraft Hosting who will be offering a $2,000 scholarship to a student who can write the most impressive essay about Minecraft.
To take part, you must be a United States citizen enrolled in University, College or High School and have a 3.0 or higher GPA. If you meet those requirements, you need to come up with and write a captivating and insightful 500-word (or more) essay about Minecraft and its role as an education and career tool.
This isn’t the first time Apex Minecraft Hosting has offered a scholarship in exchange for an essay. Last year’s winner, for example, wrote about the computer science side of the block building game. In it, they wrote about things like how redstone circuitry can teach the fundamentals of logic gates. You can check out some of the last year’s entries on the official announcement page.
If you are interested, you’ll need to be quick as you need to apply by the 31st July 2017 which you can do over on the Apex Minecraft Hosting official website.
