Well Kept Wallet believes in helping you better manage your money by saving and spending mindfully, investing wisely, and paying off debt as quickly as you can.

The best way to save faster and pay off debt is to have a side hustle. We regularly write about the best ways to do this. Here are a few of our most popular stories:

Well Kept Education

We feel strongly about financial education and recognize that college is a huge cost burden for many. New grads are faced with a hefty amount of debt. To help ease some of these costs and bring financial education to the forefront, we’re giving away two scholarships!

The first prize takes home $1,000 and the second prize will be awarded $500.

Deadline: November 2, 2018

Available to: Undergraduate college students over the age of 18 and enrolled in an educational institution full-time.

Essay topic: Show us your extraordinary money moves

We love rock stars. For this scholarship topic, we want to hear about your awesome money story. Tell us about that time you did something extraordinary with money. It could be a side hustle you started in high school with your buddies.

It could be about the time you helped raise money for a worthy cause. Or maybe you learned how to invest when you were a kid and you made an investment in a stock that went up.   

We’re looking for a unique story that shows what you accomplished and why. How did that experience shape you as a person? What did you learn? What can you share with others so they can also learn from your story?

Because this is an essay contest, we’re also looking for sharp writing skills, so grammar and spelling count! Write in the first person and wow us with your story. First place winner has the possibility of being published on Well Kept Wallet.
