Register for the Master Books 2014 Scholarship Essay Program.

Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group, will award one $3000 scholarship for the upcoming academic school year. The 2014 Master Books Scholarship Essay Contest is open to any high school junior or senior or the equivalent thereof from any public, private, or homeschool venue. The applicant must be a U.S. citizen and have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or above. This scholarship is a one-time award and may be used at any accredited two-year, four-year, or trade school within the contiguous United States. This award covers only tuition and university-provided room and board. The scholarship monies will be forwarded to the college, university, or trade school of the winner's choice in the winner's name upon receipt of a copy of the winner's confirmed admission to their chosen school. This year there are also two additional opportunities to win prizes, see below.

The Essay:

Students planning to apply for this scholarship can download a FREE chapter of the book, Questions God Asks by Israel Wayne below. After reading this chapter, students are invited to write a 500-1500 word essay with the following focus:

Evaluate Elijah’s struggle as it pertains to God’s purpose in his life. Elaborate on the internal conflict he faced as he made the decision to move from a place of fear into the complete purpose God designed for him. Are you seeking God’s plan for your life? In what ways are you actively searching out the destiny He has in store for you?

The essay will be judged on creativity, clarity of thought, accuracy, research, grammar, and spelling. The student's essay will be the property of Master Books and may be used for promotion purposes in the future. The student winner and his/her parent or guardian will be notified by email of their winning status and then must submit a written acceptance of the scholarship award by no later than June 16, 2014. If the acceptance of the scholarship is not received by June 16, 2014, the monies will be awarded to the 1st runner-up.
