SCHOLARSHIP TIP CONTEST

We’d love to help more students apply for scholarships. Have YOU ever received a scholarship? Do you want an opportunity to share your best tip? If so, we invite you to submit a short video (approximately 20 seconds) answering one of the following questions:

  • Where do you search for scholarships as a college student?
  • What is your best scholarship application tip?
  • Describe the impact that scholarships have had on your education. Why are you thankful for your scholarship(s)?

Submit your video by November 26 for your chance to be featured on our Facebook and Instagram pages. The creator of the video with the MOST LIKES at the end of November will receive a Crunch Week Survival Kit!

Official Rules:

  • Eligible video entries must come from currently enrolled Western Washington University students.
  • Video entries must be emailed to scholarshipcenter@wwu.edu.
    • Your video file size MUST be under 20 MB to be emailed to us, so please keep it short or change your camera settings!
