Ramit from I Will Teach You To Be Rich recently posted this scholarship for social entrepreneurs. It’s a $2500 award to support any company, project or organization that helps others. In addition the winner will receive personal advice and assistance from Ramit. You have to be in your twenties to apply. The deadline is this coming Thursday, January 15th, but the application is totally doable. There are two pages of questions to answer–thoughtfully and carefully–but no recommendations or anything to rustle up on short notice are required. There is likely to be some serious competition for this award, but if nothing else, the application serves as an excellent mini business plan.
Finalists will be announced on February 2nd, and the winner will be chosen on February 23rd. Even if you don’t win, being a finalist will bring serious traffic to your site. I Will Teach You to be Rich has thousands of subscribers and is often featured on other popular blogs. Good luck!
