Crowdfund Your Bill

If you have a school bill that you need to pay but cannot afford it, SponsoredScholar can be a great solution for you. Oftentimes, bills of $250 - $1,500 can be the difference between leaving and staying in school. We want to help you stay and graduate.

SponsoredScholar is Neumann University’s crowdfunding solution that empowers students like you to raise money so you can worry less about how you are going to afford your education and spend more time on your classes and studies.

How It Works

SponsoredScholar is like GoFundMe in the sense that you create a crowdfunding page (i.e., online fundraising page) where you share your story and accept gifts. However, unlike GoFundMe, SponsoredScholar provides you with a guided, step-by-step process to raise the money you need:

Campaigns are, by default, 30 days, at which point your campaign turns off and no additional gifts can be made towards your campaign. If you reach your goal before 30 days, this will result in your campaign also ending and turning off.

Requirements

To utilize SponsoredScholar, you are expected to meet the following requirements:

  1. You are an existing Neumann University student
  2. Create and launch your campaign
  3. Share your page with your community

If you do not meet these requirements, you may lose eligibility for using SponsoredScholar.

SponsoredScholar Scholarship Fund

By using SponsoredScholar, you are eligible to earn an additional $250 scholarship to help cover your bills.

SponsoredScholar Scholarship Eligibility Requirements

In order for you to earn the $250 scholarship, you must complete each of the following:

  1. Create and launch your campaign
  2. Raise at least $500 from your community

Important: you must complete all of the items above to earn the $250 scholarship. You must raise a minimum of $500 to earn the scholarship. If you raise more than $500, you will still earn the $250 scholarship, but no additional scholarship funding will be awarded. This scholarship can only go towards paying an existing bill.
