Possible Restrictions

Some concern has been expressed as to making sure the money from the scholarship is spent in an efficient manner and that the anons receiving it don't waste any.
Recipients will need to:

  • Apply for FAFSA
  • Look into their school's grant and fee waiver programs
  • Purchase their books for the cheapest price online, ahead of time before classes start, most likely on Half.com
  • Prove that they don't drop classes (the first quarter/semester they have the scholarship only half will be paid initially, any dropped classes will be subtracted from the 2nd payment)

More restrictions will probably come later, but these initial things are things every student should be doing anyway as it is.  As usual keep making your online purchases through upromise to benefit your fellow anon.






Currently funded from upromise: $29.92
Google adsense currently: $39.63
Total: $69.95

  7. I like that you are taking the necessary steps to prevent people from scamming the system. You know how it goes sometimes with money being spent on beer in college.

  9. you had asked me a question a long time ago and I feel bad for not seeing it. How did I learn my basic foreign language that allowed me to start teaching? well actually, when I went to Korea I did not know a single word. and today I still only know a few to get me around but hardly speak the language. With Japanese I used rosetta stone and have become pretty good, due to the tsunami and such my chance to go to Japan was lost, and thus my Japanese studies has gone down. sorry for the late reply
