1. How to Participate in the Scholarship?
First things first, you should be an active college or university student in any International institute. That’s one of the most basic participation criteria.
Some other instructions include:
- Minimum CGPA of 2.5 or above if you are studying at the University.
- At least a 70% score in your previous grade if you are a College student.
- The age requirement is not so subtle. You are eligible to apply if your age is somewhere between 18 to 30.
- Last but not the least, fluency in English is a must.
So, that’s all about the participation criteria. Let us now move on to the most important section, i.e. “What to Do?”
2. Requirements of the Scholarship:
Mr. Digital Piano is always looking for young enthusiasts who can impact a population through their words.
So, what we require from students is a 500 to 700 words article on the following topics:
- What are the benefits of learning piano?
- Are digital pianos need of the hour these days?
- How much time is required to ace the skill of playing piano?
Mind you that you have to choose from only one topic. Be as creative as you can and increase your chances of winning the prize pool.
Attach the proof of your CGPA and your resume while submitting the article.
3. Guidelines for Writing the Article:
Some rules that you must follow while writing the content are as follows:
