October 23, 2015

The Unplag plagiarism detection engine is willing to support students who appreciate originality and plagiarism-free content. That’s why its giving away a scholarship in the amount of $2,000 for studying purposes. A committee of educators and the Unplag team will choose the most interesting essays and publish them on the Unplag blog.

What should be done to get a scholarship?

Participants must write an essay of no more than 500 words in English. It’s up to students what writing style to choose. The essay should be unique and show student views regarding different plagiarism issues. Applicants are welcome to choose any of the topics in the list or come up with their own.

In addition to the essay, students must fill in the entry form indicating their name, school, major, and email. Applications must be sent between September 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016. Any essays sent after March 1, 2016 won’t be considered.

To be eligible for the competition, all applicants must be at least 18 years old and be current students.

How does Unplag choose a winner?

Together with a group of independent experts from education, the Unplag team will choose a student to be awarded the scholarship. Selected works will be published on the Unplag blog, and on March 9, 2016 Unplag will announce the scholarship winner. Two more participants will get free Unplag subscriptions for a year.
