      Scholarship Winners!
      Read about the scholarship winners from 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006.
      Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, The Vegetarian Resource
      Group each year will award $10,000 in college scholarship money to
      graduating U.S. high school students who have promoted vegetarianism
      in their schools and/or communities. Vegetarians do not eat meat,
      fish, or fowl. Two awards of $5,000 each will be given. Entries may
      only be sent by students graduating from high school in spring 2008.
      Deadline is February 20, 2008. We will accept applications postmarked
      before or on February 20, 2008. Early submission is encouraged.
      Applicants will be judged on having shown compassion, courage, and a
      strong commitment to promoting a peaceful world through a vegetarian
      diet/lifestyle. Payment will be made to the student's college (U.S.
      based only). Winners of the scholarships give permission to release
      their names to the media. Applications and essays become property of
      The Vegetarian Resource Group. We may ask finalists for more information.
