About Our Scholarship

College is expensive. The rising costs of higher education has made it difficult for college students and families to afford an education. At LendEDU, we help students find financial aid, scholarships, and student loans. While our primary business is student loans, we try to help all of our students find other sources of funding before using student loan debt. Unlike student loans, scholarship awards do not need to be paid back. Scholarships are free money and can go a long way when used correctly.

We are excited to offer our very own scholarship this fall. The LendEDU Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship award. Our scholarship can be used to cover any and all costs related to your education. The LendEDU Scholarship can be used to cover tuition, textbooks, room and board, and even living expenses. The LendEDU Scholarship will be awarded to 2 students this spring.

Who is Eligible?

The LendEDU Scholarship is available for high school seniors and current college students.

Please see the eligibility criteria below:

  • Must be a current high school senior or a full-time college student
  • Must be a U.S. Citizen
  • Must be earning a minimum 2.5 GPA in high school or college

The economic downturn of 2007-2008 resulted in a significant increase in the unemployment rate in the United States. According to some statistics, people who are unemployed tend to stay unemployed for longer than they have done in the past. In response to this issue, Congress has passed legislation in the past to extend the amount of time that unemployed people can receive benefits. Critics of unemployment benefits extensions argue that they do not work and actually incentivize people to remain unemployed, while supporters argue that they are necessary to ensure social stability and actually promotes economic recovery. What do you believe about the issue of extending unemployment benefits, and why?
