SHINESTY WORK HARD, PLAY HARD SCHOLARSHIPS

PUT $2500 TOWARD YOUR EDUCATION

Shinesty’s mission is to force the world to take itself less seriously by creating the most outlandish collection of clothing humanity has ever seen. In support of this mission, we want to reward college students embracing Shinesty’s “Work Hard, Play Hard” mentality. Shinesty is proud to offer both the Work Hard Scholarship and the Play Hard Scholarship for students interested in forcing the world to take itself less seriously through academic and social excellence.

WE'VE GOT A SCHOLARSHIP FOR EVERYONE

WORK HARD SCHOLARSHIP

AWARD

$2500

APPLY IF...

  • You are an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student who possesses an impeccable work ethic and constantly strives for excellence in every aspect of your life, especially within academics.
  • You see people leaving the library at 2 am and think to yourself, “Early night.” You put the team on your back for clicker questions. Your idea of fun is checking to see if your test scores have been posted - despite the fact that you already know you aced your exam. You do all the work in group projects, not because your team let you down, but because your work is just better. You actually read all 140 pages of the suggested reading. You got a perfect ACT/SAT score, but that’s the least impressive thing about your academic career. You thought graduating summa cum laude was too easy, so you picked up a second major so you could do it twice.

NEXT DEADLINE

11:59 PM PST on October 30, 2019

All applicants for the Work 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.
  • Must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25. No slackers.
  • If selected, you must provide an unofficial transcript for GPA and enrollment verification.
  • To apply, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements, and then simply complete the online scholarship application and submit a short essay or video by the application deadline. Applicants submitting a video should provide a link to their video within the essay text box. Scholarship winners will be selected based on the overall strength of their submission and application materials compared to the entire applicant pool.
  • Essay (500-750 words) or Video (3-5 minutes) answering one or multiple of the following questions:
    • Shinesty believes in breaking boundaries at every opportunity. How have you set the standard of excellence in your academic career and personal life? What motivates you to be the best version of you? When was a time your tenacity made the difference between success and failure?

PLAY HARD SCHOLARSHIP

AWARD

$2500

APPLY IF...

  • 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.

ABOUT SHINESTY

We created Shinesty for one reason and one reason only:
To bring you the most outlandish collection of clothing the world has ever seen. When worn correctly, the right clothing can make Mike Tyson's albino tiger purr like a kitten, blow the minds of boringly-dressed onlookers, or be a major contributing factor in the creation of a small human that looks strikingly similar to you. Whether you are searching for a rare retro piece, enough neon to blind the 80s, or simply something that would make Chuck Norris weep with pride, Shinesty is here to help.
Stay Weird & Shine On
