We Belong in College $2500 Scholarships

A college is a place that can be both fun and stressful and for some, it can be worse. All of us have experienced different versions of college. Some of us have bitter memories of it and some have sweet memories to share. Some experienced the harsh realities of it. So in order to listen to these experiences of students struggling through their college journey and give voice to their stories, Get Schooled is offering a “WeBelongInCollege” for the high school and college students with an award amount up to $2,500.

The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage you to share your #WeBelongInCollege story on social media using the hashtag #WeBelongInCollege. By sharing your story, other students who may be dealing with a similar challenge will know they aren’t alone and come to believe that they do belong in college. This can be a great opportunity for you to help other students with their struggles and inspire them to do better. Before you apply make sure to watch featured stories for inspiration and learn how to create your own story and then submit it. The most touching and motivational story will be awarded the amount of up to $2,500. The deadline for application submission is  October 31, 2021.
