As our reader, you know that Elite Personal Finance is dedicated to writing articles, reviews and lists in order to help people improve their finances and avoid identity theft.
However, we don’t want to stop there. We want to go even further and financially help young people from the United States. It is only natural that we want to encourage students to pursue their dreams by making a contribution toward covering their college expenses.
We know how challenging it is for some college students to financially survive. Their situation can often be rather difficult and shift their focus from studies to finances, thus damaging their GPA and future prospects.
With this in mind, Elite Personal Finance is proud to announce our first scholarship open to college and university students from the US.
All undergraduate college students enrolled at an accredited U.S. college or university, with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 are welcome to apply.
This is a one-time scholarship of $1000 that the winner can use to pay a part of their tuition fee or cover any other school expenses.
How to Apply?
To apply, you should submit an essay on the following topic:
“Best Ways to Manage Money as a College Student“
The essay must be at least 800 words long and it should demonstrate a strong working knowledge of the most useful strategies to manage your finances as a college student. Essays using academic language, primary sources and proper quotations will be given advantage.
Essays should be submitted as a Word document to our contact form.
When submitting the essay, make sure you include the following information and documents:

Our team of experts will carefully read all the essays that we receive and decide which one best covers the topic.
