These 50 students are making moves to reach their goals. To help them on their journey, we awarded each of them a $5,000 scholarship. 

Paying for college can be tough. To make it easier, we built a scholarship with no GPA, residency, or major requirements. If you’re interested in applying next year, visit the Earnest Scholarship page for details.
