  • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
  • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.
