Scholarships to USA College Students for Successful Crowdfunding Campaigns on Behalf of Nonprofits

Scholarships of $1,000 for USA college students who successfully assist a nonprofit organization with a crowdfunding campaign. Students will partner with a qualifying nonprofit to build a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising $100,000 for their nonprofit organization.

After identifying a nonprofit, students will create and manage a crowdfunding campaign on Youhelp.com. The nonprofit must agree to the campaign terms and provide materials for publicizing the YouHelp.com campaign. Necessary materials include social media networks of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, etc. and email campaigns.

Scholarship funds will be awarded to students who successfully raise $100,000 through the YouHelp.com campaign. The scholarship will be paid directly to the student’s educational institution.  Additionally, there will be intermediary incentive gifts provided by project corporate partners and a $500 bonus for the most successful project.

Please note: If a team of students work together on a successful crowdfunding campaign the $1,000 scholarship will be equally distributed among team members.

Eligible organizations are federal tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofits, as defined by the United States Internal Revenue Service Code and verified as such through the Wepay payment processor (after campaign creation).

Students must be accepted, registered, or enrolled at a qualifying college or university.
