What is Bursity?
Bursity is North America’s fastest tuition funding platform, with the largest online resource of scholarships and financial awards for marginalized students, launching exclusively to students of the African Diaspora!
How much does Bursity cost?
Paying money to receive money? That doesn’t make sense to students, and it doesn’t make sense to us! We know that paying for college is hard enough, and that’s why we’re offering students full use of our platform ABSOLUTELY FREE.
What makes Bursity stand out from other online scholarship platforms?
The B-team is working on creating a system where students can apply to multiple scholarships quickly and easily without ever having to leave our site! This is going to save you time, hassle, and of course… money!
We are also the only tuition funding platform in North America focused exclusively on marginalized students because social mobility and equality are things we’re passionate about. Not to mention, we do it all at no cost to students!
Who can join Bursity?
Our platform is available to any North American student looking for scholarship opportunities to pay for their tuition!
What kind of scholarships are available?
The opportunities available on our platform range from awards for academic or athletic achievement, community service and, unique hobbies or traits, to personal background, financial need, and affiliations. We know every student is special, which is why we bring you scholarships that are personalized just for you!
How do students get matched to scholarships?
When getting started, we’ll ask you to complete a short eligibility quiz. This quiz is intended to collect information that will match you to free scholarships that you qualify for, based on criteria such as age, race, income, activities, and affiliations.
You can say goodbye to wasting time filtering through scholarships and grants that don’t relate to you!
How much money can I get?
We’ve created a database with over a whopping $400 million in scholarship opportunities! Our eligibility quiz will help determine the amount of awards that will apply to your unique situation, so you can lose the student loans and get as much funding as possible!
How long will it take to apply for all the awards I am eligible for?
Studies have shown that without a tuition funding platform, students will take on average 5-7 hours to pool together materials for a scholarship application, and another 1 hour to apply for just one award. Who has the time for that? With Bursity, you can decrease this time by 90-95%, which means you apply to more scholarships in far less time!
