Why the New Silver Fintech Scholarship Exists

We are a globally located, diverse fintech startup, and want to encourage young entrepreneurs to dream big and start a business of their own one day after they graduate. The best way to get there is by learning the ropes and growing from there! That’s why we decided to launch the New Silver Fintech Scholarship, targeted at technology and entrepreneurship-based majors.

Who the scholarship is for

All applicants must currently be enrolled or in the process of enrolling as a full-time student at an accredited U.S. college or university. There is no minimum GPA, residency, or major requirements to apply, but applicants must be a US citizen or permanent resident (including DACA students). While this program is open to anyone attending an accredited college or  university, preference will be given to women who are enrolled in technology and entrepreneurship related majors.

What We Need From You

We would like to hear from you about what you think the future of financial technologies holds for the world. How will finance be changed with new technologies? What are the most interesting technologies shaping finance today and tomorrow.
