Old School Value Investor Scholarship

Encouraging and supporting students to success

Old School Value understands how important education, support and encouragement is needed in life. As founder of Old School Value, I began this business with no background in finance or investment experience. Just the desire to learn, being willing to be wrong has helped Old School Value become a destination and resource that thousands of investors come to rely on.

To say thank you, Old School Value offers the Old School Value Investor Scholarship to support students enrolled in investment and finance degrees.

To apply, write a 1,000 word investment thesis on any publicly traded stock.

Old School Value will award ONE applicant with a $500 scholarship. The scholarship can be used for any school related expenses, such as tuition and books.

The top three finalists will be selected and the submission will be posted on the Old School Value blog. The winner will be chosen by a vote from the Old School Value community.

The highest rated stock analysis submission will be selected as the recipient of the Old School Value Investor Scholarship.
