Rover Scholarship (The Rover Sitter Scholarship Contest)

At Rover, we’re passionate about helping people achieve their educational goals. Whether you’re living off of insta-coffee or insta-noodles, we get it—and we’d like to help fund your brain fuel for the coming school year. Just write a 400-500 word essay for your chance to win $500!


Eligible students must be a graduating high school senior or be currently enrolled in an undergraduate/graduate college or university with at least one year remaining before degree completion. Graduating high school seniors must have a GPA of 3.0 or above. Undergraduate students must have a GPA must be 2.5 or above. Graduate students must either have a 2.5 GPA or above or a “Pass” in a Pass/Fail grading system. Eligible students must also be a sitter on Rover and have booked a stay in the last 12 months.
