Writing Scholarship Announcement

WALLET GENIUS SCHOLARSHIP

We're excited to announce the first annual marketing and writing scholarship, sponsored by Wallet Genius. This scholarship aims to inspire students to brainstorm and pitch new ideas, and to help support the next generation of creative leaders.

At Wallet Genius, we strive to inspire students to write effectively and clearly, and to get their message out to a wide audience. Since our founding, our focus has been providing consumers with the highest quality reviews, helping them make informed decisions about their finances and purchases.

To inspire the next generation of financial assistants and consumer advocates, we designed the "Wallet Genius" scholarship. We will be awarding this $1500 scholarship to one student with a strong passion for writing, entirely on the basis of merit.
