The $250,000 Earnest Scholarship Fund

March 25, 2020

Earnest, a leading financial technology company, is now accepting applications for its $250,000 scholarship fund. We will be awarding $5,000 to 50 undergrad and grad students for the 2020-2021 academic year. 


To help more students get to school, we created the Earnest Scholarship Fund as a way to award 50 students who best articulate how their education will enable their dreams. To maintain the Earnest Scholarship, we put a percentage of each loan we refinance into our scholarship fund.


The submission deadline is May 31, 2020, winners will be notified via email in July, and schools will receive the scholarship funds in August.
