This scholarship (available to any US student in high school or college) aims to support individuals from lower-income backgrounds who need financial assistance with their job applications.
WikiJob was founded in 2007 and provides detailed advice on how to excel at job applications, interviews and psychometric tests. Our information is free, but we recognise that the process of applying for roles at major graduate employers has hidden costs – whether that’s transport, accommodation, or paying for courses or practice packages.
Each year, we will aim to support one individual who is finding it difficult to meet those costs, by offering a $1,000 scholarship intended to cover some of the expense. We see this as an investment in future talent.
In any year where we consider two candidates to be equally worthy, we reserve the right to offer two $500 scholarships to each in that year.
We will aim to notify the recipient of the prize by 30 September each year.
We will send the scholarship money direct to the recipient, via a PayPal transfer.
Please check to see that you are eligible. If you are unsure, contact us at [email protected]. Note that there is no cost to apply.
Fill in the fields of form below, and click 'Send' button to submit your application to us. We will then review all applications after the closing date of 31 August, and will notify the winner before 30 September. The decision will be made on a combination of merit and perceived need.
Applicants’ data will be used only to assess eligibility for the scholarship, and to contact those who receive it. No data will be passed on to third parties or used for any marketing purposes.
