GEE Scholarship

A Better America Scholarship Program

Global English Editing awards scholarships to students in the United States who intends to make a positive contribution to the country’s future. $1500 is awarded to one university student and $1000 to one high school student each year.

Reason for the scholarship

We want to reach out to the student generation and reward initiative, innovation and lofty idealism.

Today’s students have the ability to seamlessly navigate the 21st century better than any previous generation. The world is shrinking, with globalization, speed of light communication and unprecedented access to knowledge via the Internet tearing down barriers to individual and community advancement. With a pocket-sized smartphone that would have been considered a supercomputer 40 years ago, a young person can turn the world on its head and take selfies all at the same time.

The scholarship is not limited to a particular school or university, as every student in the United States has the power to change the country. We outline our reason for the scholarship in greater detail on our blog:

Scholarship to Help Young People Change America.

High School Students

• Currently enrolled as a senior in a High School in the United States.
• A citizen of the United States, or have a valid green card.

How to apply

Students must outline in 200 words or less how they intend to change America. As an editing and proofreading company, we value high quality writing, and therefore we will look kindly upon well written entries. Please submit your entry to info@geediting.com and include your name, university or school and contact details.

The prize

Global English Editing will award $1500 to the leading university student and $1000 to the leading high school student. This money should be used to facilitate their agenda, but whether that involves paying for tuition, textbooks or college accommodation, or something entirely different, is up to them.

Keep in mind that if Steve Jobs was awarded such a scholarship in his youth, he probably would have spent the money to attend a Buddhist retreat and on LSD, and we think he made a pretty fantastic contribution to America, and the world.
