THE EARNEST SCHOLARSHIP
- 31 December 2019
At Earnest, we believe the fundamental role of lenders is to help people realize their hopes and dreams.
Since our founding in 2013, we’ve combined better data, design, and service to bring people a fast, affordable, and personalized financial experience. We know how confusing and expensive education financing can be, so we’ve created a scholarship to award five undergraduate students who best articulate how their college education will enable their dreams.
All applicants must be enrolled, or due to be enrolled, as a full-time student at an accredited U.S. college or university for the semester that they are applying to receive the scholarship.
Applicants are not required to have a minimum GPA.
Applicants are not required to have a specific Major.
Domestic, international, and undocumented students may apply.
Students attending online universities are welcome to apply.
$5,000 Funds are to be applied to pay for qualified college expenses (tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance, or fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses) for the current academic year.
- An 800 to 1,000-word essay answering one of the following questions:
- How will your college education help you achieve your goals?
- How has your education contributed to who you are today?
- Proof of enrollment or an acceptance letter to an accredited learning institution. We will accept a recent transcript, acceptance letter, or tuition bill. Please note: if you are in the process of applying for colleges and universities, please indicate your current school and submit a document with the schools you have currently applied to. If you are selected for the scholarship, we will ask you to provide proof of enrollment for your college or university at that time.
