How it Works
What is ScholarJet?
ScholarJet partners with employers to create online, skill-based competitions where applicants can get hired and win funding for their education.
What We Do
We partner with companies who want to hire people with unique backgrounds and skills.
We create a competition that allow applicants to show their skills and capabilities to perform the job that the company is looking to hire for.
All submissions are judged and scored by the company who sponsored the competition.
A winner is selected and awarded the prize money. Multiple participants can be brought in for interviews.
Why Sign Up?
College is expensive. Crazy expensive.
All of our competitions offer thousands of dollars to help you pay for school, or pay off your student loan debt.
Getting hired is hard, and resumes aren't enough anymore.
Every competition is designed to help participants get hired, even if they don't win the prize money.
Build a portfolio that shows your skills.
Actions speak louder than words. Employers want to see what you can do, not what your resume says you can do.
"Skills-based competitions really level the playing field for students applying for scholarships since not all students excel at writing essays like those required in traditional scholarships."-Amy D, Northeastern University Winner of Dream Chaser by Bottom Line ($1,000) Read more about Amy's story here.
"I was almost brought to tears when I was informed that I was the winner of the competition... I felt empowered. I felt motivated. I wanted to do more with my new found talent and passion for making these types of videos. I felt born to sell"-Cullen L, Boston College Winner of Born to Sell by Rapid7 ($2,000)
Frequently Asked Questions
ScholarJet helps companies who want to connect with diverse talent create skills-based competitions that reward applicants with funding for their education and job opportunities. Students can compete by coding, creating sales pitches, marketing campaigns, graphic designs, and more.

Sign up or log in on www.ScholarJet.com. Then, find a competition that appeals to you and click “Get Started”. From there, we'll help you out with some tips and resources specific to the competition you're interested in. When you're ready, you simply upload your work and sit tight while the employer judges your submission! You'll be notified of the results as soon as they're ready.
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 helps us recommend competitions specifically to your background. It also helps employers understand who you are so they can have more information when they reach out to you! Your profile has no weight on whether or not you win a competition, but can help you get hired!
All submissions belong to the applicants who submitted them. Employers and Scholarjet will promote your submission by default, but if you'd like us to keep your submisison private, please let us know within 1 week after the competition end date.
To ensure that the prize money is being used towards education, we will issue the money to the school that you are attending or your student loan debt provider. If you have a special case, please let us know and we can work with you to determine the best steps.
