How Will I Pay for Grad School? Part 3: Writing Contests

Last time I told you about looking for scholarships. Despite specifically searching for those scholarships available for graduate students, I had to wade through so many that were only for undergrads. This was a little discouraging, but I kept looking.

Doing and Winning NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in Germany
