15-Minute MindSumo Mini-Scholarships



The MindSumo 15-Minute Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship where students apply by submitting an idea in as little as 15 minutes to a business or engineering problem created by a Fortune 500 company. We want to change the way you pay for college by moving away from the traditional scholarship model that involves sweepstakes with impossible odds or extensive essay writing. Instead we have created mini-scholarship challenges that encourage the development of problem-solving and creative thinking skills to prepare students for the real-world problems they will face when they enter the professional workforce.
