When people ask what makes you laugh, what do you usually tell them?
Some say their siblings, others think of their best friend, and for others, they’re the memes they constantly see on the internet.
For the past couple of decades, memes have emerged as laughter mechanisms in many corners of the world. They aren’t a new concept, though.
When cinemas first became popular in the ’40s, it was not uncommon to see iconic lines from popular films posted all across major cities.
Today, creating and sharing original memes is easier than ever. To encourage students to share their love for hilarious memes, the Make Me Laugh Meme Scholarship will be awarding $1,000 to one student.
To apply, you must submit one meme or funny picture and write a brief essay on why that meme/funny picture means something to you.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must:
What does this meme mean to you?
The application deadline is May 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
