Web Design Scholarship

Aug 10th

CollegeScholarships.org recently launched a web design scholarship, offering students interested in web design a chance to win $5,000 for designing a Wordpress template for a scholarship site.

I wasn't going to mention it here (figuring I have mentioned that site too many times recently with covering the 301 redirect from the old site, eh?), but I know many designers read this site, and so far there are only 2 entrants. The scholarship was going to close on the 13th of August, but I asked Daniel to extend the submission deadline to the 18th, and he was up for that, so there is about a week left before the submission deadline. The winner will still be announced on August 20th.

If you are a student into web design please apply! If you know people who may be interested in it please pass the word on.

Do you think that the volume of entries may be related to the fact that this is a US only "competition"? I don't see any reason that jumps out at me as to why this is.

Hi Dave
I think it is more the fact that it is summer and people are enjoying time away from the web, but am uncertain.

Yeah, making it US citizens will also lower the entries. I know that at the university I work at about a third of the students are from overseas, so would not be able to enter!
Also the Summer time is probably not good: the students will not be back for two weeks; perhaps putting a few posters up in the art/computer/design departments may lead to a bigger entry.
