10 Fall 2019 Scholarships You Can Apply To From Your Phone

College is expensive. Many students are trying to mitigate the costs by applying for as many scholarships and contests as possible. But writing long, well-researched essays and pouring your heart out can be taxing. You might feel you don't have the energy to power through any more applications.

Luckily, increasing your odds of winning money for school doesn't have to be difficult. The ten scholarships below don't require pages upon pages about your life. In fact, some don't require a written response at all. So break out that smartphone and start earning more money towards your education.

1. The Redefine Black Scholarship

Deadline: August 5, 2019

DoSomething.org is looking for a solution to a problem. Currently, words like "dirty" and "evil" are still used in the dictionary to define the word "black." The words we choose matter, so it's time to change them. Learn how what you write can make a difference. Sign up for resources on how language affects perception for a chance to win $5,000.

2. The Law Offices of Joel J. Kofsky Scholarship

Deadline: August 15, 2019

This Philadelphia-based law firm is looking for a short video — just two to three minutes — on the topic of driving to avoid a car accident.

The first place winner will recieve a scholarship of $1,500.

3. Make Me Laugh Scholarship

5. Return2College Scholarship

Deadline: September 30, 2019

In three sentences or less, Return2College wants you to explain why you're pursuing your degree. Why does theater speak to you? Why is saving lives your passion?

6. Oleg Fastovsky Outstanding Citizen Scholarship

Deadline: September 30, 2019

In 500 words or less, the Maryland Criminal Defense Group wants you to talk about how you and others can serve your community. It's perfect for those with personal volunteer experience.

This prize of $2,000 in cash is open to all students who want to study abroad. In as a little as 150 words, tell judges why you have your sights set on a certain city. Talk about why you're obsessed with hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro or climbing the Eiffel Tower. The winner can use the scholarship towards any study expenses.

8. CC Bank's Young Scholars Scholarship

Each year, CC Bank's awards $2,000 to five students attending college or university. Enter for a chance to win by completing a short application with a 250-word response on how volunteer work has shaped who you are. Pull from personal experiences or what you've witnessed in your community.

Current and prospective college students can use the money towards tuition, books and other education-related costs.

10. VIP Voice Scholarship

Deadline: Rolling

If you want a simple way to earn money for college, look no further than VIP Voice's $5,000 scholarship. To enter, all you have to do is complete two short surveys. As you complete surveys, you'll earn points. The more points you have, the better your chances of winning the contest.

When summer is here and it's time to start thinking about heading back to school in the fall, don't stress about student loans or paying for more books. Instead, take out your smartphone and start earning cash.

Most of the contests above require just a few short sentences to enter. Some require nothing but your name and email. What are you waiting for? Start paying for your education today!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
