Valentine’s Day is a time for love and, at Fastweb, we love scholarships!

To celebrate our love, we thought we’d share some amazing opportunities with our members.

Check out these Valentine’s Day scholarships you’ll absolutely fall in love with!



$10,000 Create Valentines for Older Adults Scholarship

Deadline: 2/15/15
Available to: Age Max 25 Years
Award Amount: $10,000

Create handmade Valentine’s Day cards to show an older adult you care and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship.

Getting older can be pretty lonely. In fact, 17% of all American seniors face isolation due to location, disability, or language barriers.

This winter, DoSomething.org and Meals on Wheels are working together, asking young people to make handmade cards to be delivered in person to older adults by local Meals on Wheels.

Not only will you be making a older adult feel connected this Valentine’s Day, participants can earn a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship for school for the first card they make and additional chances for every three cards made after that.

The more cards you make, the more entries you can earn.

There are no essays or minimum GPA required.
