Only students currently enrolled as High School juniors, seniors, undergraduates, or graduate students may apply for and receive UDC’s “No Essay” $1,000 Scholarship. Scholarships may be used only to pay tuition and mandatory fees for the academic semester in which the scholarship is awarded or the immediately following academic year for high school students, and for the immediately following academic semester for college students.
To apply for the scholarship, students must complete the full scholarship application and provide the scholarship selection committee with all of the information required in the application or by the committee.
A UNIVERSITIES.COM Review Panel (the “Panel”) will select ten (10) potential finalists (the “Finalists”) from all Eligible Applicants. It is in UNIVERSITY.COM’s sole discretion to determine which nominees advance to the voting phase. The final round of judging will be done by an online vote conducted on social media and other digital platforms. The Finalist who collects the most votes will be the potential recipient of the UNIVERSITIES.COM’s UDC “No Essay” $1000 Scholarship (the “Winner”).
Even if a Finalist may appear to be a leader online during the online voting, that Finalist has not yet been declared the Winner. UNIVERSITIES.COM shall declare all official Winners. All Finalists are subject to verification by UNIVERSITIES.COM and must meet all eligibility requirements including the execution and return of all necessary releases, or they may be disqualified. The decisions of the Panel will be final and binding. If more than one application is received for a particular Eligible Nominee, UNIVERSITIES.COM, in its sole discretion, may consider any of the applications for that individual in its judging. Whether an applicant is identified and which applicant is identified, if there are multiple applications for one individual, is in the sole discretion of UNIVERSITIES.COM. UNIVERSITIES.COM is not bound by any voting or judging mechanism set forth herein as it maintains sole discretion to name Finalists and Winners and provide awards.
