ScholarshipOwl's subscription matching service offers a $1,000 scholarship to qualified schools.

ScholarshipOwl is a scholarship matching service that helps students find and apply for scholarships from around the country. With one survey, ScholarshipOwl uses those answers to find scholarships you may be eligible to receive. They then apply for the scholarships for you, taking the stress off you as you find funds to help with your education.

In addition to their scholarship service, ScholarshipOwl offers its own scholarship. It's awarded through a sweepstakes, which means anyone can apply for it for free.

How Much Money Is Available?

ScholarshipOwl is offering a $1,000 scholarship to the winner of its sweepstakes. In addition, you may receive a one-month paid membership to ScholarshipOwl. This may help you find even more scholarships to make your education even less expensive.

How it Works

The ‘You Deserve it’ scholarship is a sweepstakes drawing that runs each month until the end of the month. ScholarshipOwl draws a winner within the first two weeks of the next month, with a chance of 1 in 140,000 to win it. In addition to the prize, which they transfer to your qualified high school, college or university, you’ll receive a one-month membership to their service which can help you find and apply for even more scholarship money.

You can re-enter the sweepstakes each month, and if you register at the start of the month, you can add another entry every week.

Who is Eligible?

In order to be eligible for the ‘You Deserve it’ scholarship, you must:

  • Live in the United States, except Michigan or Rhode Island (District of Columbia is included)
  • Be at least 16 years or older
  • You must be enrolled in a qualified high school, college, or university. If you aren’t yet enrolled, you must be enrolled within the next 3 months

That’s all you need to qualify. You don’t need specific grades, specific test scores, or to attend a specific school. This ‘at random’ scholarship is literally a sweepstakes entry that everyone has an equal chance of winning.

How to Apply

If you create a Scholarship Owl account, you're automatically entered upon account creation (one entry). Typically, each applicant may then make another entry every 7 days.

Because it is a sweepstakes, if you don’t want to create an account online, you may also submit an entry by mail. You must mail a postcard with your name, age, email address, and state that you live to:

Apply Me, Inc.
427 N. Tatnall St #91572
Wilmington, DE 19801 – 2230

ScholarshipOwl’s ‘You Deserve It’ scholarship worth applying for if you're looking for scholarship money. It takes only a few minutes to create your account and enter the sweepstakes, every 7 days. It’s a great way to get you started on your education funds, helping to make the cost of your high school or college education less expensive.
