    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** 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.

    Tips for making a winning video

    • Practice and perfect your script thoroughly before you even think about shooting. Practice giving your speech to friends and family member so you have a natural repertoire worked up before you even get in front of the camera
    • Memorize your script well enough that you are not relying too heavily on reading when you shoot your video
    • Try to make sure you have good lighting when shooting your video. Even though the scholarship may not be entirely decided based on shooting quality, it can help keep the judges interested and show that you put effort into it
    • Make sure to read the rules thoroughly. They often will state if they prefer a webcam-shot video or one shot by a friend or family member. They often also include length requirements, and potentially a format requirement for submission
    • Put effort into your editing. If the rules allow for it, make a nice title card and show that you’ve created a polished product

    Frequently asked questions about video scholarships

    Can you get a scholarship for videography?

    Yes, you can! While this list is primarily aimed towards scholarships for any subject that involve a video component, there are also film scholarships. These are aimed towards students who intend to study film and videography. Our list of film scholarships is a great place to start when looking into this.

    Do I need to major in film to get a video scholarship?

    You don’t! There are video scholarships out there for any subject. This list contains video scholarships for students majoring in journalism, visual arts, and many that are open to studnets of any major. The only thing that makes a video scholarship is that your application will include a video.

    How should I dress for a scholarship video?

    The answer to this question can vary slightly based on the specific scholarship and the impression you want to give. However, a safe bet is usually dressing business casual. You can always dress more formal than this if you like, but usually, you shouldn’t be less formal. Remember that how you dress can help you stand out to the scholarship reviewers. If you have any formal clothes with an especially noticeable flair, you may consider wearing them to leave a strong impression, as long as they are appropriate.

    Will I be penalized if I don’t have a good camera for video scholarships?

    Most video scholarships will not outwardly penalize you for bad camera quality. They are more interested in the message you are getting across than how polished it is. That being said, the presentation will probably have an unconscious effect on the reviewers, and anything you can do to ensure its clarity can be a good idea. This can be as easy as finding a visually appealing background and good lighting. You might also try to borrow a camera or use one at your high school, if possible.
