No essay scholarship - $500 monthly

Sussle helps you learn interesting things about any topic. We're offering a fun scholarship because it's our social cause to help reduce the cost of education.

Easy scholarship - no application, no essay

Just post and vote for stuff that's:

  • Useful like DIY projects, infographics or recipes
  • Interesting and funny like beautiful images or viral videos
  • Hard-to-find like factoids not in Wikipedia
  • Well-written and informative
  • Not already posted or copied verbatim from another source
  • Credit the source where readers can learn more

Who is eligible

  • High school seniors, or current full-time undergraduate or graduate students at an accredited college or university in the United States
  • US citizens or legal permanent residents
  • Not a Sussle Scholarship or other Sussle contest winner in the previous 12 months, or employees of Sussle or its affiliates

You choose the judges

  • Each scholarship entrant can invite 1 Sussle member as a judge.
  • Judges can invite other judges.
  • Only judges' votes count towards the leaderboard.
  • All judges must have a profile page, and a positive Interest Rating.
  • Sussle Elite and Sussle's founder, Chuck Kao, are permanent judges.
  • To invite a judge, click the Help tab on the right, and send us the judge's profile link.

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.

Winner determination

  • The leaderboard on the right shows your standing. It's an easy to get scholarship, right?
  • The entrant with the highest votes by the deadline wins.
  • Votes are calculated by adding all likes and subtracting all dislikes for all of your posts made during the scholarship period.
  • If there is a tie in votes, then the highest number of posts will be used as a tiebreaker. If there is a tie in both votes and posts, then the scholarship will be split equally among the ties.
  • 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 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.
