Paying for college should not be stressful. As we know, the cost of tuition in the United States is overwhelmingly increasing every year. But with the right financial aid, students shouldn’t be burdened by it anymore. Tallo presents the “Tallo 15K Scholarship” for one lucky student to win a sweepstake of college tuition waivers.
Tallo (formerly STEM Premier) is an online platform that connects talent with opportunities. The Tallo app assists students in designing a career pathway, educators in recruiting top talent to their schools, and employers in developing a stable, continuous talent pipeline.
How does it work?
Students and professionals showcase their skills and abilities in their online profiles, connect directly with companies and colleges looking for the next generation of talent, and match with over $20 billion in scholarships.
Talent (students and professionals) create free digital profiles to showcase their talents, discover resources and scholarships, receive guidance and coaching, and connect with colleges and companies.
Talent seekers (verified colleges and companies) can view student profiles, micro-target with specific search filters, track top-level analytics, and recruit candidates directly via internal messaging.
Tallo is free to use both for students who want to create their profile for the first time and for companies. These profiles contain various information about them which later can be used as a benchmark by potential universities and colleges or employers in recruiting their candidates.
In line with one of its commitments to provide equal opportunities for all, this year Tallo held a “Tallo 15K Scholarship” for deserving students. Scroll to the end to find out how the program works and when you should apply.
