WikiJob Student Scholarship

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.

Program Vision

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.

Terms & Conditions


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.

Application deadline:
31 August

We will aim to notify the recipient of the prize by 30 September each year.

Means of payment:

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.
