Frequently Asked Questions
ScholarJet is a web platform that help companies who want to connect with the future generation by creating skills-based competitions with scholarships being the prizes. Instead of writing essays, students will be able to participate in 5 categories; STEM, Art/Media, Health/Wellness, Community/Civic Engagement and Business. For example, students can paint, dance, code or even volunteer for their competitions.
We create skills-based competitions that are made to be beneficial through educating students about topics that companies care about. These competitions cannot be made to outsource work from companies to students. Students must be able to benefit from these competitions by enhancing their current experiences/talents or exposing themselves to new skills and topics that they might be interested in.
Our competitions are open to students with financial need. Each competition is open to undergraduate college students. For now, unless otherwise specified, only students in MA may apply, though we plan to expand nationally in the next few years.
Note that the John's Crazy Socks Autism Can-Do Scholarship is available nationally.
ScholarJet is a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). This means we are a for-profit company that has a social mission. Though we are a PBC, we are fiscally sponsored by a public charity exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). This enables us to accept donations.
Students are able to log on to www.ScholarJet.com and create an account. They will then find a competition that appeals to them and clicks “I’m Interested” to indicate that they are interested in completing the work for that competition. Finally, when they are ready with their work, they will be able to upload their file digitally onto our platform. The committee of the competition will be notified to judge the submissions and the winner will be notified via email and social media.
Students will be able to submit work that meets the competition’s criteria unless specified otherwise. If a student continues to reuse a specific submission, the committee of judges will decide whether or not that submission is valid.
A profile help us to cater the type of competitions that would be interested in the student’s area of expertise. It also helps us understand who the students are as people. Companies will be able to look at the student’s profile as well as past competition accomplishments to potentially connect with the students for future opportunities beyond scholarships. The student’s profile has no effect on judging submissions.
All of students submissions belong to the students. All of the submissions as well as the students will be promoted unless stated otherwise by the students. Students must let the companies or ScholarJet know if they do not want to be publically promoted 1 week after the competition end date. It’s important to note that students and their submissions can potentially go viral.
To ensure that the prize money is being used towards education, we will issue the money to the school that you are attending. When you know which school you are attending, please email email@example.com and we will let you know when the check has been mailed.
