2021 Side Hustlin' Student Scholarship Winners
We're proud to offer an annual scholarship of $2,500 to new and current college students. We will also offer a runner-up scholarship of $1,000.
The goal of the scholarship is to recognize and award individuals who are both pursing higher education while working hard to achieve their dreams financially. We want to hear about the creative and passionate ways that individuals are working towards their dreams - both literally and figuratively.
This scholarship is not about how much money someone is earning at their side hustle. In fact, little consideration will be given to that. It doesn't matter if your side hustle is earning $100 or $100,000. What matters is your effort, thought process, and goals. We want to know your story. Learn more about the detailed requirements here.
Remember, this scholarship is about hustle, so entrants are encouraged to show their entrepreneurship and marketing skills.
Note: The scholarship will return in 2022, with entries eligible starting January 1, 2022.
