TRAVEN WATASE

Founder of Scholars App

“THE HIGHS AND LOWS ARE APART OF THE PROCESS AND ARE GENERALLY NOT INDICATORS OF SUCCESS OR FAILURE; RIDE THEM OUT!

ABOUT SCHOLARS APP

Scholars App is on a mission to send 1 million more students to college by allowing students to find and apply for scholarships on our website.

SCHOLARS APP HISTORY

After I graduated from Farrington High School I wanted to give out a scholarship to a student who may not be represented well on paper, but had the drive to go to college. While living in a warehouse and going to college myself, I decided to eat PB&J sandwiches for one week out of every month to save $50/month so I could afford to give $500 in a scholarship of my own. With $500 in my hand my scholarship was rejected, because the dollar amount was too little. Thats when I decided to try and fix the problem with scholarships.

LESSONS THROUGH PACE

Honestly I cannot think of specific advice; it was more of the resources that had the biggest impact for me – mainly the VPIR and PIR programs.

WORDS OF ADVICE

The highs and lows are apart of the process and are generally not indicators of success or failure, ride them out!
