Even more information for the curious

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

  • Is the Sussle Scholarship legit?
    Absolutely. We are listed by hundreds of high schools and colleges. We have awarded over $15,000 to students so far.
  • When did Sussle start?
    Sussle started when the world ended in 2012, so it's still a baby.
  • Who's behind the scholarship?
    Me, Chuck Kao, and an awesome team.
  • Why are you offering this scholarship?
    I come from a first-generation immigrant family that was relatively poor. I went to an Ivy League school thanks to a lot of student loans. I wish I had won some college scholarships.
  • Who decides what good content is?
    Everyone. I want to create a system that is powered by the wisdom of crowds. It's amazing how smart many individuals together can be.
  • 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 everyone on Sussle is a real person, 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.
