New UW Homeschool Scholarship

University of Washington homeschool scholarship & essay contestCurrent and prospective homeschooled students at the University of Washington have a new scholarship opportunity, thanks to the Homeschool Advocacy Project at UW. A $1000 scholarship will be awarded, based primarily on an essay addressing one of the following prompts:

1. In what ways has homeschooling provided you with a unique education? How do you expect having been homeschooled will influence your experiences in college and beyond? Support your claims with specific examples.

2. What are the grounds for the legal or moral right to homeschool? Should people have the right to homeschool? Why or why not? Be sure to address both sides and cite evidence when appropriate.

3. Address the issue of government involvement. Should school districts keep track of and monitor homeschoolers? If so, to what extent? Should homeschoolers have to demonstrate to the government that they are on track educationally? If so, why? Cite research to support your claims.

Essays will be judged on overall content, structure, writing mechanics and use of supporting evidence. Deadline is June 30. For more information, visit the Web site here.
