What value does online scholarships have for students?
Let’s think about it this way. What is your ultimate goal as students? Perhaps you want to work with a sneaker store like Nike or you want to become a data analyst for a pro sports team.
Any profession requires a degree from an accredited college or university. To attend a college or university, you need to have money through aids like scholarships to help pay overpriced tuition.
We’re not talking about those long essay scholarships. We’re talking about mobile scholarships on your smartphones and iPads. Don’t worry about tedious essays when you can make a TikTok video instead.
Now what if we told you that Breakthru had a scholarship sponsored by a National Basketball Association (NBA) player?
Breakthru's first scholarship was sponsored by Santia Deck, a female football player and it caught the attention of two-time NBA All-Star, Andre Drummond. Andre was so convinced by what he saw from the Santia Deck scholarship that he direct messaged Breakthru on Instagram saying that he wanted to participate in a similar activity where he could give back to the community that turned him into a pro athlete.
Andre awarded Sydney-Reese Harris with a $5,000 prize because of her hard work and dedication to sports and her collegiate dream. You don’t have to be a standout player or have a 4.0 GPA. All you need is determination and a smartphone. Which by the way, check out Andre personally rewarding Sydney-Reese Harris the scholarship prize!
According to Forbes, “Student loan debt in 2022 is now more than $1.7 trillion…Student loan is now the second-highest consumer debt category-second only to mortgage debt”. The source of this universal problem comes with the many barriers that students have to go through before they can apply for financial aid including race, gender, and family income. We know what students’ struggles are like on a daily basis and they are already spending so much money. The last thing Gen Z students need is another way to dig deeper in debt for small and limited opportunities.
Breakthru intends on steering away from that hole and bringing students a better light for the future with unlimited scholarship opportunities because we believe that hard workers like you deserve it. We want to open up opportunities for the Gen Z community so scholarships can be accessed with ease and with no doubt.
Breakthru wants to ensure that you all get paid back for your time in school during tough situations with more opportunities like the Andre Drummond opportunity. The Breakthru team is always connecting with organizations who possess the students first ideas.
So my fellow students, download Breakthru and get your financial aid opportunity instantly.
