The $250,000 Earnest Scholarship Fund

April 16, 2021

Earnest, a leading financial technology company, is now accepting entries for its $250,000 scholarship fund. We will be awarding $5,000 to 50 undergrad and grad students for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

To give back to the community, Earnest launched a scholarship fund that will help 50 students take on less debt. For every student loan we refinance, we put a percentage of our profits towards the scholarship fund. There are no essays to write and no fees, to ensure every student has the opportunity to enter the scholarship.

The submission deadline is June 30, 2021, winners will be notified via email in July, and schools will receive the scholarship funds in September.
