Scholarship for Orphans and Half-Orphans by EduBirdie

If you’re a student from a single parent household or a student who has sadly lost both your parents, then we want to give you the opportunity to apply for one of our scholarships. We understand the importance of education and we want to make someone’s academic journey that little bit easier.

We’re offering students $1000 scholarships to use for their own educational purposes, whether that’s tuition, college books, equipment, or loans.

Eligibility Requirements for the Edubirdie Scholarship

We created our scholarship to try and help students avoid the financial hardships that people can so easily experience.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must be:

  • A full-time student at a high school, college or university
  • From a single parent or parentless household
  • Aged 17 years old and over

Application Process and Requirements

If you are interested in applying for the scholarship you will need to submit the following information:

  • A little bit about yourself (contact information, age, university, college or school)
  • Links to your social media accounts
  • Share information about scholarship on social media
  • A 500-800 words essay on one of the following topics:
    • “Do we still need grades in modern educational system?”
    • “Information overload: the bane of modern world. How can we help the students to deal with it?”
    • “Standardized testing: a conventional way of checking the results of education or a new caste system?”

This essay should be submitted in English language. All entries should be original and free of plagiarism! Each essay will be checked with a professional plagiarism checker and any non-unique piece will be declined.*
