That’s why we’ve created a scholarship with a difference, an application without the essays: The Six Word Scholarship.

Inspired by legendary author Ernest Hemingway, who reportedly won a bet with fellow writers that he could write a complete story in just six words, we’re asking applicants to demonstrate their ability to create succinct copy that cuts through online.
