GotChosen $5,000 Social Network Scholarship

You want scholarships every month. We want to show you our social network everyday.

Eligible posts will be viewable online for the duration of the contest for the public to view and vote on. The number of votes received for each post will be tracked by GotChosen’s platform. As determined by online voting, the applicant with the most votes among all their posts will be the winner.
