Negative Population Growth Written Advertisement Scholarship Contest
Entries consist of a written advertisement between 100 and 200 words that can be published in a magazine or a newspaper. Ads may include topics such as fertility and immigration rates or the negative consequences of U.S. overpopulation, such as environmental damage and economic stress. All applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident.
Ads will be judged based on originality, the quality of writing, how well it addresses the topic, and critical thinking ability. Multiple scholarships will be awarded.
The scholarship is offered by Negative Population Growth (NPG), a national non-profit membership organization founded in 1972 and located in Alexandria, Virginia. The organization was formed to educate the American public and politicians about the damaging effects of overpopulation on the U.S. environment. They believe that reversing overpopulation will ensure a livable America for future generations.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in APRIL of each year, and the award amount is usually $2,000.
