Winner determination

  • The leaderboard shows your standing. It's an easy to get scholarship, no?
  • The entrant at the top of the leaderboard by the deadline wins INSTANTLY (as long as eligibility is confirmed).
  • Your ranking depends on how many votes (likes minus dislikes) you get during the scholarship period, PLUS other quality factors. This is why the rankings may not always be ordered by votes.
  • Each month, the winner will be announced after verification of eligibility.

Deadline to enter

Even more information for the curious

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

  • Who's behind the scholarship?
    Me, Chuck Kao, and a small team-literally. They're elves (as in Santa's, not LOTR).
  • Is the Sussle Scholarship legit?
    Absolutely! We are listed by hundreds of high schools and colleges. We have awarded over $20,000 to students so far.
  • When did Sussle start?
    Sussle started when the world ended in 2012, so it's still a baby.
  • Why are you offering this scholarship?
    I come from a first-generation immigrant family that was poorish. I went to an Ivy League school thanks to a lot of student loans. I wish I had won some college scholarships back then.
  • Who decides what good content is?
    Everyone. Sussle 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?
    Really? The world has jaded you. No, we don't sell your data.
  • 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. We show some ads, but we're mostly supported by angel investors. And yes, there are blue skies painted on its nursery ceiling.
