Illustration for article titled Education finally gets serious about the undead apocalypse with this Zombie Scholarship

At least one organization is worried about the real problems facing our nation's future. is offering a $1000 "Zombie Scholarship" for people who want to help the living stay living once the dead walk the earth. The details:

Applicants must:
• Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
• Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
• Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2018) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education
• Submit an online short written response (250 words or less) for the topic:
Imagine that your high school/college has been overrun with Zombies. Your math professor, the cafeteria ladies and even your best friend have all joined the walking dead. Use your brain to flesh out a plan to avoid the Zombies, including where you would hide and the top 5 things you would bring with you to stay alive.


Not the cafeteria ladies! I can do without my best friend, but how is anyone supposed to survive the zombie uprising without access to frozen, square pizzas?! And is life even worth living in a world without tater tots? I say thee nay. If you think you know how to keep our nation's cafeteria ladies alive and frying, you can apply for the scholarship here - just do it before 11:59pm EST on December 31st. Thanks to Anabel M. for the tip!
