    "Be The Boss Scholarship "
    Female Scholarship Only
     Look, guys. This is business; nothing personal.

    Let’s talk numbers -- just the cold, hard facts.

    Did you know… Female founders outperform their male peers?

    Have you heard… Female CEOs in the Fortune 1000 drive three times the returns as S&P 500 enterprises run predominantly by men?

    Unbelievably… Only 18 percent of all startups have a female founder, and when talking Series A, only 10 percent are female-led. In fact, of the $114 billion in funding given to these startups, only 6 percent of it makes its way to a female-founded startup.

    And did you know… Women-owned businesses added 340,000 new jobs between 2007 and 2015 while men-owned businesses cut 1.2 million?

    How about this one…Among the most successful companies, men begin their businesses with six times as much capital as women do!

    And have you read… Less than five percent of VC dollars go to women-led businesses?

    Well, we have, and we believe them to be true. That’s why we’re eager to offer a scholarship exclusively for women who want to execute on their business ideas.

    Who is eligible? Any female high-school or college student, who wants to start her own online business. 

    How much is each scholarship worth? $2000. 

    How many scholarships are you giving away? Two scholarships per year. 

    How will I know if I won? Either way, win or don’t win, we‘ll notify all applicants via email on the announcement dates (see above).

      "Innovation In Education Scholarship "
    At LA Tutors 123, we believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram; still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver. 
    One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways.
    It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with adults outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice college or get an internship. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college and for life.
    We at LA Tutors are passionate about sparking the creative genius in students and would love to commend those outstanding students who have a made a difference in the lives of others in some innovative or technological fashion. In order to achieve this, we have established a scholarship for students who meet certain criteria
    Must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (or the equivalent).
    Must have designed an innovative project that makes a difference in the lives of others (This could be a website, series of blogs, an app, fundraising event, etc.)
    Must submit an essay describing the goal of the particular project and provide supporting documentation. There is no minimum or maximum word/page count.

     "Atlas Shrugged Essay Contest "
    (Top Prize: $10,000; Second Prizes (3): $2,500; Third Prizes (5): $500)
    Open to all 12th grade, college undergraduate, and graduate students worldwide
    Essay Topics:
    Select one of the following topics:
    1. 1) In the world of Atlas Shrugged, material goods that many of the characters take for granted become increasingly difficult to obtain as the plot progresses. Identify several examples of such goods, and explain how the novel accounts for their disappearance. Describe the economic and the moral-philosophical forces at work in their disappearance. Are there significant parallels with the shortages our world has witnessed in the last few years? Explain any similarities and differences (using contemporary examples). 
    2. Throughout Atlas Shrugged, there are both literal and figurative references to motors and motive power. Describe three examples of this that occur in the novel, and explain their meaning in the context of the scenes they are taken from. How does this meaning relate to the wider philosophical themes of the novel? 
    3.Among the many advocates of the “morality of death” he targets in his radio speech, John Galt reserves special criticism for the “mystics” who declare that man’s duty is “to crawl through years of penance, atoning for the guilt of his existence to any stray collector of unintelligible debts.” Name and describe at least two of the doctrines about human nature that Galt says these mystics use to encourage this moral outlook. Then illustrate their impact by choosing a character from Atlas Shrugged who struggles with these doctrines. (If one struggles with both, you need only discuss one.) What types of behavior do the doctrines encourage? What are the consequences for the character(s) in question? How is this struggle resolved?

    A) Students are permitted to submit one entry for the contest per year.

    B) Essays must be 800-1600 words in length and written in English only.

    C) Essays must be solely the work of the entrant. Plagiarism will result in automatic disqualification.

    D) Essays will be judged on whether the student is able to argue for and justify his or her view—not on whether the Institute agrees with the view the student expresses. Judges will look for writing that is clear, articulate and logically organized. Winning essays must demonstrate an outstanding grasp of the philosophical meaning of Atlas Shrugged.
