The $1,000 GoFundMe January Scholarship will award one current or incoming college student $1,000 to help pay for tuition, books, a laptop, study abroad, or any other academic expenses. We’ll be looking for inspiring GoFundMe campaigns, ideally with photos and videos included to help tell your story. Don’t be shy about mentioning any awards, honors, or scholarships you’ve received too - we want to know more about your hard work and why you deserve this scholarship! To qualify for the chance to win, you must start a GoFundMe with the hashtag #januaryscholarship in your campaign description and raise money from at least 10 unique donors. Share your GoFundMe with friends and family on Facebook — helping others is contagious, and you’d be surprised how many people (teachers, aunts and uncles, neighbors, family friends) will be inspired to donate. The contest ends on February 3; the scholarship winner will be announced in February.
