Scholarships

The Slickdeals Student Scholarship Program

To further support our tradition and mission of helping students save, we are offering four scholarships for the winter/spring 2018 quarter/semester (or single equivalent term). Each scholarship award is a value of up to $2,500 for use in connection with tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required by each winner's university. If you're a deal-savvy student currently attending an undergraduate or graduate program at a college or university, or if you will be attending in winter/spring of 2018, you should apply for the Slickdeals Saves U! Scholarship Program.

We want to provide exceptional students with an opportunity to focus more of their energy on academics, and ease the financial stress of achieving their goals. Our site is built to be a money-saving resource, and now we're proud to continue to offer a scholarship program in addition to that.
