  • Well-written, informative comments for each post
  • Not already posted
  • Not copied verbatim from another source
  • Credit the source where readers can learn more

Know your chances of winning

The leaderboard on the right shows you how you're doing. With traditional scholarships, who knows what your chances are.

Deadline to enter

July 31, 2014 11:59pm Pacific time. This is a monthly scholarship.

Winning strategy

  • Try to get the most votes by posting good, interesting content.
  • Rate the content posted by others.
  • Fill out your profile so people know who you are. You'll get more votes.

Top 5 finalists

  • The finalists will consist of the top 5 eligible students listed in the leaderboard as of the deadline.
  • Finalists will be judged by the quality of their posts, how they vote for great content, and by a video interview.
  • 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.

Winner determination

  • One winner will be chosen from the finalists at Sussle's sole discretion.
  • The winner will be announced after verification of eligibility.
  • The 2nd runner up will receive $50.

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 financial aid. From my own experience, I believe that people are most successful when they pursue their interests. And I want to help by reducing the cost of pursuing your interests through education.
  • 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.
  • 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.
