PayAnywhere Monthly Essay Contest for $1,500 Grand Prize


What is the Scholarship Contest?

PayAnywhere values education more than anything else as we believe the future of this great country depends on it. Yet we understand that attending universities can cause substantial hardships for students in need of financial aid. In that spirit, we are proud to announce the PayAnywhere $1,500 Quarterly Scholarship Fund.


How to Apply for the Scholarship Contest

Every quarter throughout the 2014-2015 academic year, PayAnywhere will launch an essay contest with new topics. All students who are enrolled part or full-time in an American University for the 2014-2015 academic year may participate.

To apply for the contest, write an original 500-1000 word essay on one of the topics listed for the particular contest your are entering.  Email your submission to before the deadline of the competition. Any submissions emailed after the deadline will not be eligible for consideration.

How is the Essay Contest Judged?

The essays will be posted publicly on and judged by social voting. The essay with the most Facebook Likes and Google Pluses by the time the contest ends for that month will be named the winner of the contest. PayAnywhere will pay $1,500 to the university on behalf of the winning student.
