Ascent’s scholarship giveaways may help cover the cost of your school-related expenses – including tuition, books, rent, groceries, parking and transportation, and more, as well as other monthly bills and purchases.

Students (14+) from all majors, colleges and technical-skills training programs can enter for a chance to win. The best part? We pay you directly and you choose how to spend it. PLUS, you will always have multiple chances to win each month.

Have questions about student loans?

We have answers.

You can enter by following the steps for each scholarship opportunity and completing an entry form. You will receive one entry in each scholarship during the scholarship giveaway.
Ascent’s scholarship giveaways are open only to: (i) students who are legal residents of one of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia, age 14 or older, and who are enrolled in a high school, degree program, or technical skills training program, at least half-time or (ii) parents who currently have a child enrolled as a student meeting the qualifications of 2(i) (each, an “Entrant”).
One potential winner will be randomly selected after each scholarship giveaway is closed. Winners are subject to eligibility verification by Ascent, whose decisions are final and binding and notified by email. If you cannot be contacted using the information provided in the entry or fail to respond within three business days, you may be disqualified and forfeit your prize. Ascent will select another potential winner at random. For more information, please see the Official Rules under the scholarship application on each of our scholarship pages.

You may contact [email protected] if you run into any issues before or after submitting your scholarship entry.
