Project Scholarship gives students the opportunity to win micro scholarships and gain experience by doing short, real-world projects for potential employers.

Pay for School

What is one of the toughest parts about paying for school? Finding the time and energy to work around classes. Project Scholarship allows students to earn money from the comfort of your bed through completing real-world tasks assigned by companies in exchange for micro-scholarships. The projects cover a wide range of fields, and any current  U.S. College or University student is eligible to compete for the scholarships. The top three entries win the posted micro-scholarships, made payable directly to your college or university.

Gain Resume Building Experience

Sure, you enjoy your major -- but have you ever wondered if you’ll be as enthralled by the work people in your field do every day? Project Scholarship gives you the opportunity to work for potential employers on a project-by-project basis. We expose you to the applications of your coursework by providing samples of the actual tasks employees in your field do every day. Whether the project affirms or modifies your career goals, Project Scholarship gives you a leg up on the job market while you’re still in school.

“These micro scholarships can really add up. By reducing the amount I need to borrow from a Direct Plus loan at 7.6% for 30 years, I will save $2,541.87 for every $1,000 we don't need to borrow.”

- Dennis, Villanova University Student Parent

“Project Scholarship is a lifesaver. It gives me work experience and financial help, as well as career insight, without sacrificing my class schedule or social life.”  

- Rachel, Montclair State University
