LendEDU Scholarship Spring 2017 – Deadline April 15th, 2017
About Our Scholarship
College is expensive. The rising costs of higher education has made it difficult for college students and families to afford an education. At LendEDU, we help students find financial aid, scholarships, and student loans. While our primary business is student loans, we try to help all of our students find other sources of funding before using student loan debt. Unlike student loans, scholarship awards do not need to be paid back. Scholarships are free money and can go a long way when used correctly.
We are excited to offer our very own scholarship this upcoming Spring. The LendEDU Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship award. Our scholarship can be used to cover any and all costs related to your education. The LendEDU Scholarship can be used to cover tuition, textbooks, room and board, and even living expenses. The LendEDU Scholarship will be awarded to 2 students this Spring.

The LendEDU Scholarship is available for high school seniors and current college students.
Please see the eligibility criteria below:
Must be a current high school senior or a full-time college student
Must be a U.S. Citizen
Must be earning a minimum 2.5 GPA in high school or college
How to Apply
At LendEDU, we stress the importance of using financial aid and scholarships before student loans. To apply for the LendEDU Scholarship, you must answer this simple question in 750 words or less:
For high school students:
"With college becoming more expensive, securing a good job after graduation is crucial. How will you consider your future earning potential in choosing a major, while still pursuing something that interests you?"
For current college students:
"With college becoming more expensive, securing a good job after graduation is crucial. How have you considered your future earning potential in choosing a major, while still pursuing something that interests you?"
Tell us how you have considered or will consider your future career opportunities in selecting a college major while still choosing something that interests you. As college becomes more expensive, more students and their families are forced to take on student loan debt to fund their education. It is crucial to know how you will pay back any debt you may have to take on and choosing a major is the first step - but it is also important to choose something that will engage you and make you happy in the long run.
