The Academy FAQ
Why did we create the Academy?
Working with thousands of students, we found that certain characteristics predict scholarship success 5 - 25x greater than the average student. We created the Academy for students who have the potential be high ticket scholarship winners to realize their potential.
What is the Academy?
The Academy is an invite-only Scholarship & University entrance program. Only 7% of applicants are admitted into the program.
How it works
Students are provided access to a special and exclusive Academy Training Course Area. Students are matched to a special list of scholarships that they are eligible for. Then students are alerted of key application deadlines. Students prepare their essays for submission by working with our essay editing team on a regular basis to polish their essays for the best chance of winning.
Access to our team
Navigating scholarships and schools is hard. We’ve guided, mentored, and supported thousands of students through the process. Since we’ve done it before, we know how to guide you through the process with the most clarity and efficiency.
GrantMe Academy students get 24h email support, access to office hours with the GrantMe team, and monthly Student Success Calls with a student mentor.
GrantMe Academy students are chosen based on proven success criteria. We only award spots to students who will get results. For this reason, GrantMe Academy students get a Scholarship Guarantee to their participation.
Benefits of the program
Students applying to big awards like Loran, Schulich, TD go through an interview process. A successful interview can be worth $70,000. GrantMe Academy students undergoing interviews will get coached by the GrantMe team on how to interview for these large awards.
Transformed earning potential
Students working may make up to $30/hr. If students spend 40 hours applying to scholarships, they should win a minimum of $10,000. This puts their hourly rate at $329/hr. Our top students win $100,000+, putting their hourly rate at $3290/hr.
There is a small opportunity window for top students to take advantage of their transformed earning potential. Students who do see a 10-100x multiplication of their potential hourly rate.
Pre-written applications cost between $2,000-10,000. This is both illegal and unethical. We work with students to create authentic essays. We provide unlimited essay edits, coaching, and feedback so that each student is left knowing that the essay is their voice, their experiences, and shows them in the best possible light.
A top-end essay editing service is $250/hr. Editing 20 essays would be $5,000. And there is no guarantee attached to those edits.
We match you to a minimum of 20 scholarships that you are eligible to win. This could take you well over 20 hours of research and find matches. Then additional time and stress to determine if you’re actually eligible to win them.
Successful students in our program spend between 40 hours per year (approximately 2 hr/wk) applying to scholarships. At $10,000 of scholarship winnings, their hourly rate is $250/hr. Adding 20 hours of scholarship research reduces their hourly rate to $166/hr.
