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.

5 ‘urgent need’ requests for fall semester

We expected to be overwhelmed with requests for fall semester funds when we invited homeschoolers to make known their needs. (See our post from July 31.) We find it amazing that almost everyone seems to have their funding in order!

We decided to publish today the five requests that came in, as some have due dates just around the corner. We received requests from four young women and one young man. Colleges they hope to attend include Shippensburg University, Columbia International University, Crown College, Northwestern College, and Southeastern University. Our hope is that if you have available resources, you will invest in one or more of these students. For those who have considered providing a homeschool scholarship but aren’t yet ready to commit to the process, this may be a good alternative.

We realize most of our site visitors are students and parents seeking scholarship money themselves, so if you know of other individuals or businesses who may be able and willing to provide resources for homeschoolers, consider introducing them to this site.

If this effort is successful, we’ll consider offering the opportunity at the beginning of future semesters. You will find the current list of students seeking help for Fall 2010 on a sub-page of Provide a Scholarship.
