Shinesty’s Play Hard Scholarship


  • You are an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student who is a force of social change and leadership on and off campus by being actively involved and engaged in countless activities, groups, or clubs.
  • We’re looking for the college-iest college student in the U S of A. No one has ever asked you, “Who do you know here?” You’re actively leaving a legacy of social excellence & have already started picking the font for the bench they’ll probably dedicate to you. On your first day, you asked your RA for YOUR social events calendar. You know you’ll be here for five years, because red-shirting your academics is a D1 strategy. If someone’s talking about it, you planned it. You call your professors by their first name, and they do the opposite. There’s zero chance you peaked in high school.

All applicants for the Play Hard Scholarship must meet all of the following eligibility requirements to apply:

  • Must be enrolled at an accredited 2-year, 4-year, or technical/vocational college or university in the United States.
  • Open to college undergraduates, graduate students, or professional students.
  • Must be a United States citizen or Permanent Resident.
  • Open to students from all states.
  • Maximum cumulative GPA of 3.25. No nerds.
  • If selected, you must provide an unofficial transcript for GPA and enrollment verification.
