15-Minute MindSumo Mini-Scholarships


MindSumo partners with Fortune 500 companies to create business and engineering "challenges" for students to solve. We are now using our challenges to provide scholarships for students who need help paying for college Rather than a sweepstakes with impossible odds of winning, or requiring an essay that takes hours to write, we created our scholarship challenges with your best interest in mind. Challenges can be solved in as little as 15 minutes and award 50% of participants with a mini-scholarship. Each month we offer at least $25,000 in total scholarship funds. Individual challenges have a $1,600 scholarship prize pool and top ideas can earn up to $200 each. Sign up and then select a challenge. We want to change the way you pay for college by moving away from the traditional scholarship model that involves sweepstakes with impossible odds or extensive essay writing. Instead we have created mini-scholarship challenges that encourage the development of problem-solving and creative thinking skills to prepare students for the real-world problems they will face when they enter the professional workforce. Each challenge is an individual scholarship: Solve as many as you like to increase your potential scholarship award amounts. Each challenge has its own deadline. Every submission gets judged and rated: Company hosting the challenge selects winners based on the quality of the idea (creativity and completeness). Your great ideas are rewarded with mini-scholarships: 10% of top submissions share $1,000 scholarship pool 15% of next top submissions share $400 scholarship pool 25% of next top submissions share $200 scholarship pool
