One Day, One… Scholarship?

I Will Teach You To Be Rich Scholarship

No, we’re not launching a new site. One Day, One Scholarship might be an awesome idea, but we’re going to stay focused on the area of employment for the foreseeable future. The reason that I’m talking about scholarships today is because Ramit Sethi, personal-finance blogger at I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Founder and VP of Community Marketing at PBwiki, and author of Recruit or Die, e-mailed me to let me know about a scholarship that he (yes, him personally) is offering and to ask me to share the information with you.

Why am I going off topic for Ramit?

Two reasons.

1. Although getting your personal finances in order may not be directly tied to you job search, it’s another important part of the transition from college to adulthood. In regards to your job search, being smart with your money will take the pressure off you to accept the first job that you get offered, and it will make your salary go much farther once you start getting paychecks. If money matters to you at all, you need to read I Will Teach You To Be Rich. Whether you get the $2,500 scholarship or not, listening to Ramit will make you a lot wealthier over the course of your life. Since most of you are looking for jobs because you need to pay the bills, you should have a natural interest in personal finance advice as well.

2. This scholarship is all about entrepreneurship, and I rarely talk about entrepreneurship despite the fact that I’m living it. I took the “if you can’t find a job, make one” approach, and I recommend it highly to new college grads. If you’re looking to start an entrepreneurial venture, this scholarship will give you a great start.

I Will Teach You To Get A Scholarship

Here are the details:

The I Will Teach You To Be Rich Scholarship for Social Innovation is an annual $2,500 award for anyone in their twenties who has demonstrated entrepreneurial excellence and is planning a socially innovative project.
