Below is a compiled set of answers to questions that commonly arise when working with Unigo. Click on a link below to jump to the respective section.
Yes, UNIGO and our Unigo-sponsored scholarships are legitimate and real. The site first started offering “theme” scholarships back in 2007, and those creative, monthly scholarship opportunities have grown through the years. ScholarshipExperts.com and Unigo were acquired by EDPlus Holdings, LLC in 2013 and 2014, respectively; in 2015, the websites/brands were combined into the website called “Unigo”. The site was later acquired by EducationDynamics LLC. The idea behind the Unigo scholarships is to help parents, students and educators in understanding that there are a lot of different types of scholarships out there — they are not all just for the straight A students or the athletic superstars. Students can actually win free money for college by being creative and original in their short written responses.
The limit is one (1) application per person.
Scholarship winners are contacted about 90 days after the deadline date — we contact winners by phone/text or email. Winners are also published online about 90 days after the deadline. You can find the winners of Unigo’s scholarships in our winners circle.
