How to Enter

Eligibility and Requirements

  • Students studying in the U.S. on a F1, J1, or M1 visa during the 2017-2018 academic year.
  • Must be accepted to study or continuing to study at an eligible college or university.
  • Must submit a valid I-20 or DS-2019 form.
  • Must score in the top 15% on a standardized U.S. college entrance exam (SAT, ACT, GRE, or GMAT).
  • Must have a 3.0 GPA, or higher, or the equivalent from your prior studies



How This Works

Scholarship

  • Recipients will be selected randomly from the pool of eligible applicants.
  • All scholarships are awarded on a one-time basis.
  • Six scholarships will be awarded to undergraduate students and six scholarships will be awarded to graduate students.
  • Applicants may designate an international student club or organization as part of their application. Any club or organization selected by a scholarship recipient will receive a one-time grant 
of $1,000.
  • All applicants are enrolled in a Free Financial Literacy program.
  • No purchase or credit application required

NEW: Second Way to Enter

Once you’ve applied for the SelfScore Scholarship, you can nominate one friend (who is also an F1, J1, or M1 student) to apply via Facebook. Then if either of you are selected as a scholarship recipient, you are both awarded a $5,000 scholarship. It’s a second way to enter, and clear Win-Win for you and a friend.

Follow these steps to nominate a friend:

  1. Make sure you have completed your own scholarship application first
  2. Share a Facebook photo that meets these criteria
    • With one hand, hold up all five fingers (think high-five and $5,000)
    • With your other hand, hold up a piece of paper with the first and last name of the person you’re nominating
    • Set your Facebook post privacy to public before you share. If you need help, learn more here
  3. Please copy, paste, and personalize the text below into your Facebook photo description:
    • @(TaggedFriend), I just applied for the SelfScore International Student Scholarship. I nominate you to apply for the scholarship. If either one of us is selected, we’ll both receive the scholarship! Don’t leave me hanging, apply here: selfscore.com/scholarship #SelfScore5K @SelfScore
  4. All nominations must be timestamped on Facebook by September 28th at 11:59 PM PST



How This Works

Second Way to Enter

  • Each scholarship applicant may nominate one friend and can only be the recipient of one $5,000 scholarship. Nominating multiple people will disqualify all of your entries from the Second Way to Enter
  • After the application window closes on September 28th, 2017, SelfScore will randomly select twelve scholarship recipients from the eligible pool of applicants
  • If any of these scholarship recipients have nominated a friend or have been nominated by a friend by complying with the steps and rules above, the friend will also receive a scholarship. If the scholarship recipient received multiple nominations, only the first nomination will be counted
  • Nominators and nominees must also meet the minimum eligibility and requirements, and have a completed application
  • Only nominators and nominees associated with the original twelve recipients selected will be considered for the Second Way to Enter

Thanks to the SelfScore scholarship, I will be able to devote my summer this year exclusively to research for my thesis, without having to worry about juggling work and study.
