    On the list of requirements, I do not see a reference to frequency of blog posts. Is there an expectation that the winner of this scholarship will post “N” number of times each day/week/month? And, what are the consequenses should the blogger abandon their blogging efforts during the term of the agreement?

    Great idea, by the way!

    Paul,

    There is no set limit for the number of blog posts, but we are generally looking for a high frequency of quality posts.

    If the blogger ceases to blog after receiving the award, then nothing will happen. However, the type of blogger to win our award will not likely want to stop.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Scientist,

    Yes, good point..actually I just changed that requirement to: ‘enrolled in a college in the United States’.

    is this open to grad students too? cos we’re pretty poor….

    I thought blog only changes how advertisement and business works. Now it affects academics. Nice move. A blog is a person’s mind.
