How to apply

Create a short video that answers the prompt: Why enroll at my school? Be creative! Talk about your favorite campus experiences or tell stories that you feel might convince prospective students to enroll. Must be a US citizen, full-time student and campus tour guide.

Get your supervisor’s permission. Fill out the form and submit your materials.

You will need a letter from your supervisor that confirms your official role as a tour guide. Once you have it, prepare your video for submission and fill-out the form below. Register with your .edu email address from an accredited US school. Applications must be submitted before May 1st, 2021.

Upload your video, attach the letter from your  supervisor, and we’ll approve you!

Our two scholarships are awarded differently. One is awarded based on most likes for a video. So, once we publish your video on YouTube, gather likes and increase your chances to win! The second $5,000 scholarship is awarded by an independent panel of judges.

Students were asked to grab a mobile phone, turn on the video recorder and tell the campus story that they thought would encourage a new student to enroll!

We asked them to consider if they would tell prospective students about the incredible friends they'll make? Or talk about their awesome professors and classes? Or share about their school's social life, clubs, and traditions? Or describe their cafeteria, residence halls, classrooms, etc.?
Participate in the voting process by "liking" your favorite video submissions through 11:59 pm EST on May 31st, 2021.
Winners will be announced here on June 1st.

Step 1

Create the video.
Before you start shooting your video, think back to the campus tours you hosted. What stories made your visitors laugh? What moments connected with them? What did you say, or show them, that made each tour most memorable for them?

Visitors will visit 3-7 schools. But your school is truly unique. Tell us why! No prospect falls in love with a classroom, library, or cafeteria. They fall in love with your campus culture, its people and its traditions.

If your video uses your awesome storytelling skills to tell your campus story, you will have the best shot at winning a scholarship!

Technical requirements for video:
- any video format (i.e. mp4, mov, etc)
- 5 minutes maximum length
- 1GB maximum size

Step 2

Fill-out your personal details.
Register with your .edu email address from any accredited US school.
