October Scholarship of the Month

"Zombie Apocalypse" 2014 Scholarship

Has "The Walking Dead" got you thinking what you might do if your 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 in on those survival tactics and imagine what your school or college campus might be like in a zombie apocalypse. Our Zombie Scholarship Committee wants to know your plan to avoid the zombies, where you would hide (or maybe you don’t need to), and the top five things you would bring to stay alive.

Our 2014 Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship is underway, and we 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?

Submit an online short written response (250 words of less) for the question:

“Imagine that your high school/college has been overrun with Zombies. Your math professor, the cafeteria ladies and even your best friend have all joined the walking dead. Use your brain to flesh out a plan to avoid the Zombies, including where you would hide and the top 5 things you would bring with you to stay alive.”
