The Laws of Life Contest
Scholarship title: The Laws of Life Contest
Applicable Majors: All fields of study
In 1997, a philanthropist named John Templeton published a book called "Discovering the Laws of Life." In that book, he gathered together the advice offered by the major religious scriptures of the world, various schools of philosophical thought, storytellers, scientists, artists, and historians regarding one crucial question: “What does it mean to live a good life?” To this day, that text remains a wonderful source of inspiration to people around the world, and this year, which marks the centenary of John Templeton’s birth, the publishing company that bears his name is releasing a revised commemorative edition of that book entitled "The Essential Worldwide Laws of Life."
To mark the occasion, Templeton Press has also established this scholarship contest. Having a purpose, a calling, a sense of why one was placed on this earth was one of Templeton’s original laws of life. To be a happy and successful person, one must have a purpose. If you are a high school senior in the U.S., take some time to think about why you are in this world. Create a vision for yourself and the world you want to create; if you share that vision with us, it could earn you a $5,000 scholarship.Apply on their site
