WiseGeek (wisegeek.com) provides millions of readers with clear answers to common questions. It’s built for curious people of all ages, backgrounds, and areas of interest.
Many WiseGeek readers have student debt, either from funding their own education or that of family members. To support our readers on their financial and educational journey, we’ve created the WiseGeek Lifelong Learners No-Essay Grant.
The grant will be awarded to a WiseGeek reader who is curious about the world, across a diversity of topics and interest areas.
The grant is open to anyone who has student debt or expects to in the future, including those who are no longer in school or who have student debt from funding the education of a family member.
The application deadline is Aug 31, 2020. Winners will be announced on Jun 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
