RE: Student Scholarship Competition


Hi Education Boosters,

Would you mind sharing this opportunity with your students and network? I appreciate your help getting the word out!

The Alliance for Innovation and Infrastructure (Aii) is hosting a nationwide OpEd Contest for enrolled college students:

     • 1st Place: $5,000

     • 2nd Place: $1,000

     • 3rd Place: $500

Article: Max 900 words.

Deadline: Oct 15, 2023, 11:59 pm ET.

Students pick from one of three topics, submit their piece to a chosen publication, and provide a link to the published piece or proof of effort for placement. It’s a great opportunity for students to voice their opinions, shape national conversations on important topics, and win a scholarship!

Details and topics can be found here: Student Scholarship Contest. For questions, please reach out to Benjamin Dierker at

Hoping for a winning entry from a student near you!
