Tell Your Story.

At Scholarship America, our mission is to mobilize America to make postsecondary education possible for all students. We've taken on this mission because we know how scholarships change lives, and now we want to know how they changed yours.

Whatever your story, whatever your scholarship, and wherever you are on your journey, we want to know.

In 500 words or less, describe: how a scholarship made your dream of going to college possible; what inspired you to go to college and how you made it happen; any barriers that you had to overcome while in college; how earning your degree helped – or will help – you achieve your life goals.

Bonus: In 100 words or less, describe how your college education is helping you give back to the community.

Please note: this is not a scholarship application. If you're looking for scholarships, we wish you the best of luck (and encourage you to check out our Open Scholarships and our partners at, but we are seeking stories from people who have received scholarships!

Thank you again!
