2013 Hunger Awareness Scholarship
The Hunger Awareness Scholarship is a $2,000 scholarship currently being offered by DoSomething.org. DoSomething.org is a pretty awesome website–it is one of the largest non-profit websites that is focused on social change (and specifically aimed at younger people). Their tagline is also fantastic–”Over 2.4 million people took action through DoSomething.org in 2012. Why? Because apathy sucks.”
One of the causes of DoSomething.org is Hunger Awareness, hence the 2013 Hunger Awareness Scholarship.
Am I eligible for the Hunger Awareness Scholarship?
