How would you fancy receiving US$ 2000 to go towards your college education? Well, if you are a Zombie Apocalypse fan then your creativity can easily win you the Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship prize. Winning this is as easy as having a great contingency plan in mind that can save you, should your school ever face an attack by flesh-eating zombies.

If you are a fan of the TV series ‘The Walking Dead’ or enjoy watching, movies like ‘Maggie’ and ‘World War Z’, then you must have thought of what you would do if zombies attacked your school. For the 2015 award, the Zombie Scholarship Committee would want to read from the applicants, their survival plan that highlights where they would hide or what they would do if they do not need to hide. The essay response needs to include a few essential things the survivors would carry with them.

To qualify for the award, applicants need to be at least 13 years at the time of making application and be enrolled in any post-secondary institution holding recognizable accreditation. Students planning to enroll before the fall of 2012 also qualify to apply for the award. The applicants must be residents of any of the 50 states that make up the United States or be residing in the District of Columbia.

The essay submission, which should be not more than 250 words, needs be original and previously unpublished. This should be done online between November 1, 2014 and October 31, 2015. The scholarship committee allows only one application per person. Aside from the essay, applicants should also include full name, contact information as well as background and academic details.

The scholarship committee informs applicants that their written response should be in proper English with correct grammar and spelling. The committee disqualifies written responses that are libelous, pornographic, obscene or otherwise objectionable.

The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship prize is US$ 2000, presented as a check made payable to the award recipient’s post-secondary institution.
