Have you already or will you soon be sending in your college applications? AdmissionHook focuses on the importance of the personal statement, and each year they give away a scholarship to a top essay. This year, they’re giving away $1,000.

Between 250 and 500 words in length, your college application essay can be submitted easily on their website. The deadline is in 2 weeks, so do it now.

Who can apply for this scholarship?
Any 9th-12th grade high school, college, or graduate student. There are no age limits but you have to be a U.S. citizen or legal resident.

And if you’re like me and applying to law school, the site also lists some sample essays to get you started. I think I’ll be writing mine on lifehacking.
