Have a task your organization has been meaning to complete, but can’t seem to find the resources or time? Crowd-sourcing projects on Project Scholarship can help lessen your labor load. Post your project on Project Scholarship and current students from any eligible U.S. College or University will accomplish the assignment and compete for scholarship funding. Choose and report back on the first, second and third place winners. It’s that simple.
Students “work” for your organization on a project-by-project basis. This is the best way to assess future hires. Your organization will see what the student can produce. The nature of the project will determine the number of applicants. Project Scholarship also houses a Resume repository for employer review, allowing you to attract and further assess up-and-coming student talent early on.
To post a project, your organization will provide a micro-scholarship to finance the students’ education. Project scholarship funds range from $250 to $1,000 per project. Project Scholarship pays the scholarship funds directly to the winner’s school. By posting projects, your organization will gain recognition and establish a reputation at top universities. Even students who don’t win the scholarship will appreciate the resume-building experience. Your organization can leverage this connection with students to further promote your organization on college campuses.
