Fans of zombie movies or The Walking Dead, check this out! I wish they had offered this when I was in college.
Did binge watching The Walking Dead get you thinking about what you’d do if the streets were filled with flesh-eating zombies? Maybe you’ve envisioned your own post-apocalyptic world overrun with the living dead, forcing you to come up with a zombie survival plan — and quick!
Hone your survival tactics and imagine what your school or college campus might be like in a zombie apocalypse. The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship committee wants to know your plan to avoid the zombies, where you’d hide, and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive. The best part is that they are giving one successful survivor $2,000 towards his or her college education. Do you think you have what it takes to make the cut?
- Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
- Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
- Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2023) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education
Submit an online written response to the question:
“Imagine that your high school or college has been overrun with zombies. Your math professor, the cafeteria ladies, and even your best friend have all joined the walking dead. Flesh out a plan to avoid the zombies, including where you’d hide and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive.” (250 words or less)
The application deadline is October 31, 2017. (of course, Halloween) The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around January 31, 2018.
