Easy scholarship that's fun!

This is an easy, no essay, fun scholarship. Sussle collects the most interesting images, videos, and facts. Please help us by contributing your knowledge.

No application, no essay

Just contribute stuff that's worth saving. Here are the qualities we look for:

  • Interesting and funny like beautiful images or viral videos
  • Useful like recipes or how-to's
  • Hard-to-find like facts not in Wikipedia, or links not on the first page of Google results
  • Well-written, informative comments for each post
  • Not already posted
  • Not copied verbatim from another source
  • Credit the source where readers can learn more

Who is eligible

Ongoing contests

Deadline

This is an ongoing, monthly scholarship. The next deadline is April 30, 2014 11:59pm Pacific time.

Winning strategy

  • Try to get the most votes by contributing good content, starting early, and posting often.
  • Post to the most specific topic possible. For example, do not post a video about Siberian Huskies to Dog, Animal, or Video.
  • Rate the content posted by others. That's another way you can contribute.

Top 5 finalists

  • The finalists will consist of the top 5 eligible students listed in the leaderboard as of the deadline.
  • Votes are calculated by adding all likes and subtracting all dislikes for all of a member's contributions made during the scholarship period.
  • If there is a tie in votes, then the highest number of contributions will be used as a tiebreaker. If there is a tie in both votes and contributions, then we will include each of the students with tied scores during the interview stage.
  • Sussle reserves the right to change site functionality periodically to ensure fairness for all participants.

Winner determination

  • One winner will be chosen from the finalists by an interview panel at its sole discretion.
  • Finalists will be judged by the quality of their contributions, how they vote for great content, and how many new members they introduced.
  • The winner will be announced after verification of eligibility.
  • The 2nd runner up will receive $50.

Even more information for the curious or skeptical

Wow, you scrolled down this far? Here's your reward :)

  • When did Sussle start?
    Sussle started when the world ended in 2012, so it's just a baby.
  • Who's behind the scholarship?
    Me, Chuck Kao and a small, awesome team. See me on LinkedIn. When people ask this question, I think they're really asking, "Are you a bunch of identity thieves outside the reach of American justice?" in which case the answer is no.
  • Why are you offering this scholarship?
    I come from a first-generation immigrant family that was hard-working, entrepreneurial, and relatively poor. I went to an Ivy League school thanks to a lot of financial aid. Now that I call the shots, I would rather spend money on Sussle's users than on marketing. It's my way of giving back.
  • All I have to do to enter is post content?
    Yes. Really.
  • This scholarship sounds too easy. What's the catch?
    This is an elaborate scheme to accumulate knowledge for the good of everyone while helping students pay for their education. It would have been easier to build a site to steal your identity ;)
  • Who decides what good content is?
    Everyone. I want to create a system that is powered by the wisdom of crowds rather than a small group of editors. It's amazing how smart many individuals together can be. Read more about the wisdom of crowds.
  • How do you create an account? Is Facebook the only way to register?
    When you post or vote, you'll be asked to sign in with Facebook. Yes, it's the only way to register. We do this to ensure that contributors have a real identity and to prevent abuse.
  • Do you sell our data to other companies?
    No, we don't sell anything. We don't even show ads on the site.
  • How do you make money?
    Wow, you must be a business major. Would you ask a baby how it makes money? Like any baby, Sussle's only job is to grow healthy. Our team and angel investors provide a nurturing environment for it to thrive. And yes, there are blue skies painted on its nursery ceiling.
