NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN; VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

Scholarship Election System

The Election System will first be made available in January 2007 and will continue thereafter until modified or terminated by CollegeNET, acting in its sole discretion (the "Operating Period").

Beginning with Wednesday, May 30, 2012, each election week (Wednesday to Wednesday) within the Operating Period will serve as an election cycle for Open Award(s) (an "Open Award Cycle"). The duration of each Open Award Cycle will be from 3:01 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the first day of the election week through 3:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the final day of the election week.

A "Tournament Period" consists of a specified number of consecutive Open Award Cycles. The first Tournament Period will commence at 3:01 p.m. (Pacific Time) on Wednesday May 30, 2012, and will continue through 3:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on Wednesday, August 8, 2012. Subsequent Tournament Periods and the duration thereof, if any, will be posted by CollegeNET on the home page of the Site.

Candidate Eligibility

In general, in order to become a Candidate and therefore become eligible to be awarded a scholarship in the Election System, you must be a resident of the United States (excluding Puerto Rico). In addition, you must either be:
(a) currently attending a college or university on the CollegeNET approved list of schools (a "College") and enroll in a two (2) year, undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree program at the College; or
(b) planning to attend a College and be enrolled in such a program within one (1) year after the end of the Tournament Period in which the applicable scholarship is awarded; or
(c) currently obligated to pay an unpaid balance on a Title IV student loan listed in the National Student Loan Data System ("NSLDS"), and such loan does not have a NSLDS Status Description of "defaulted" (an "Eligible Loan").

To be eligible for a scholarship, you must not have been awarded more than an aggregate maximum of $10,000 in scholarships from the Election System, and you must participate as a Candidate in the Election System in accordance with these Official Rules, including by registering for a Candidate account as described below. (Candidates must also have a cell phone with text messaging capability to register for a Candidate account). If you are awarded a scholarship, the amount of such scholarship will be delivered either to the financial aid office of the College you attend (or plan to attend) for disbursement towards your educational expenses or to the holder or servicer of your Eligible Loan. Validation of your eligibility to receive a scholarship is required prior to delivery of any scholarship funds.

Officers, directors, and employees of CollegeNET and any of their respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, agents, professional advisors, advertising and promotional agencies, and the immediate family members of each (collectively, the "Released Parties"), are not eligible to be awarded a scholarship.

All applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. Participation in the Election System is void where prohibited.

Challengers

Challengers are invited guests of CollegeNET who post one or more weekly forums designated on the site as a challenge forum. Challengers have full voter status, and additionally participate in selecting the Tournament Award(s) at the end of each Tournament Period.

Types of Scholarships

The scholarships provided on the Site fall into five categories: Open Awards, Rookie Awards, Tournament Awards, Restricted Awards, and College Awards. The time period during which Candidates may participate in the Election System to try to earn a particular scholarship is called the "Competition Period" for such scholarship. The Eligibility Rules for a particular scholarship determine who may participate in the competition for such scholarship.

Open Awards

Within the Operating Period, CollegeNET offers "Open Award" scholarships through the Site during specified Open Award Cycles. These Official Rules and their terms apply to such Open Awards. Open Awards can be applied by a winning Candidate to whichever College he or she attends or to whichever Eligible Loan(s) he or she designates.

Rookie Awards

Beginning with the Open Award Cycle that commences Wednesday, August 8, 2012, CollegeNET offers "Rookie Award" scholarships through the Site during specified Open Award Cycles. These Official Rules and their terms apply to such Rookie Awards. Rookie Awards can be applied by a winning Candidate to whichever College he or she attends or to whichever Eligible Loan(s) he or she designates.

Tournament Awards

Beginning with the Open Award Cycle that commences on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, CollegeNET offers "Tournament Award" scholarships through the Site during a specified Competition Period. These Official Rules and their terms apply to such Tournament Awards. Tournament Awards can be applied by a winning Candidate to whichever College he or she attends or to whichever Eligible Loan(s) he or she designates.

Sponsored Awards

From time to time during the Operating Period, a third party sponsor may offer a "Sponsored Award" scholarship through the Site during a specified Competition Period. These Official Rules and their terms apply to such Sponsored Awards. The following additional requirements apply:
(1) Candidates must specifically sign up for each Sponsored Award;
(2) Candidates must comply with additional submission and eligibility requirements (if any) specified by the relevant Sponsored Award sponsor(s); and
(3) the Competition Period for any particular Sponsored Award may vary from that of other scholarships on the Site and/or from the Open Award Cycle.

The winner of any given Sponsored Award shall be the Candidate who, as he or she competes for other awards, accumulates the most points during the specified Competition Period among all Candidates eligible for that Sponsored Award.

College Awards

From time to time during the Operating Period, a particular College, either alone or in conjunction with other sponsors or CollegeNET, may offer a "College Award" scholarship through the Site during a specified Competition Period. These Official Rules and their terms apply to any such College Award with the following exceptions:
(1) Each College Award carries the additional eligibility requirement that Candidates must attend the specific College offering the Award;
(2) The Competition Period for any particular College Award may vary from that of other scholarships on the Site and/or from the Open Award Cycle; and
(3) The winner of any given College Award shall be the Candidate who, as he or she competes for other awards, accumulates the most points during the specified Competition Period among all Candidates eligible for that College Award; and
(4) A College Award can be applied by a winning Candidate only to the particular College that sponsored the College Award or to an Eligible Loan that was used by the winning Candidate to pay to attend the particular College that sponsored the College Award.

Candidate Account Signup

You must sign up for a Candidate account in order to become a Candidate. Limit one (1) CollegeNET account per person. (An eligible person may have only one (1) Candidate account OR one (1) Voter account, but not both.)

In order to sign up for a Candidate account, you must have access to a cell phone with text message capability. Text messaging is the way CollegeNET delivers both the account activation codes necessary to complete Candidate account setup and the security codes necessary for you to complete voting. Once you use a cell phone number to set up an account on CollegeNET, it cannot be used again for this purpose. Users are prohibited from setting up multiple accounts and from recruiting others to set up Candidate or Voter accounts that only function to campaign or vote for others. Under no circumstance is it permissible to use an account created by another person.

If you are awarded a scholarship, we will contact you using the information you supplied when you created your Candidate account.

Voter Account Signup

Limit one (1) CollegeNET account per person. (An eligible person may have only one (1) Candidate account OR one (1) Voter account, but not both.)

Voters must have a cell phone with text message capability to register for a Voter account. Text messaging is the way CollegeNET delivers both the account activation codes necessary to complete Voter account setup and the security codes necessary for you to complete voting. Once you use a cell phone number to set up an account on CollegeNET, it cannot be used again for this purpose.

If you are not eligible to, or do not wish to, participate as a Candidate, you may still vote for Candidates by signing up for an Election System Voter ("Voter") account. Voters are not eligible for scholarships but may vote for Candidates in addition to reviewing Candidate profiles and discussions. Candidates receive the same amount of points for votes from Voters as they do for votes from other Candidates. Just as for Candidates, under no circumstance is it permissible for you as a Voter to use multiple accounts or to use an account created by another person.

Voting Rules

Anyone with a Candidate account or a Voter account may vote.

Voters and Candidates may cast no more than two (2) votes per calendar day per Competition Period. For example, Mary may cast two votes on Wednesday during the current Competition Period. If, however, a new Competition Period starts on that same calendar day (Pacific Time), then Mary may cast another two votes on that day, after the start of the new Competition Period, with her third and fourth votes counting in the new Competition Period.

A Voter or Candidate may cast no more than one (1) vote for a specific Candidate in any single Competition Period. However, a Voter or Candidate may vote for that same Candidate once again in any subsequent Competition Period. A Candidate may not vote for himself or herself.

A Candidate may receive a vote only after posting a submission on or through the Site. Examples of such "Submissions" include comments (to a Site forum), a personal profile, and/or a video. Candidates should visit the Help Center for instructions on how to post Submissions.

Voters and Candidates must conscientiously evaluate Candidate Submissions and cast their votes for Candidates based on the following judging criteria:

  • The most thought-provoking Submission;
  • The most interesting Submission; and
  • The most well-written/well-prepared Submission.

The antithesis of such diligence, of course, would be to buy or trade votes or to scheme the voting process in collaboration with others. Candidates and Voters are prohibited from trading (or offering to trade) votes, including, without limitation, by exchanging a vote for a vote, or a vote for money. Under no circumstance is it permissible to participate in a vote trading, vote management, or vote coordination scheme of any kind. While asking or encouraging family members and others to vote on the Site is permitted and encouraged, under no circumstances is anyone permitted to carry out or otherwise assist the voting behavior of another person. If any such voting scheme is detected, CollegeNET may (in its sole discretion) restrict, suspend, or terminate access to the Election System for any Candidate or Voter associated with such scheme.

Candidates earn points for each vote they receive and for each vote they cast. The voting system is weighted, and the point value assigned to each vote varies according to participation, communication skill, and engagement factors. The scoring algorithm assigns higher weights to Voters and Candidates who make greater contributions to the Site as assessed collectively by other Voters.

For example, Tom participates in the Site by casting two (2) votes each day during the Competition Period. He votes for a range of Candidates, posts frequently, and creates forums that generate thoughtful discussion. When he votes for Cassie, his votes thus have more impact both for him and for her because his voting weight has increased by virtue of his participation in the Site.

Cassie also participates in the Site. She uses all of her daily posts to contribute ideas to the Site, and she creates forums that generate a lot of discussion. When she votes, she votes for Candidates who actively participate in the Site, rather than voting for inactive Candidates. When she receives a vote, that vote thus carries more weight for her due to her participation in the Site. Additionally, each vote she casts for another Candidate carries more benefit to that Candidate owing to her active participation in the Site.

See the Help Center for further information about casting votes and other aspects of the Election System. Please be aware, however, that these Official Rules shall govern in the event of any conflict with the Help Center or any other descriptive materials available on the Site.

Scholarship Information and Determination of Awards

Open Awards

The amount of each Open Award scholarship will be $300. The number of Open Award scholarships to be awarded in any particular Open Award Cycle will vary, based on the total aggregate amount of money to be awarded as Open Award scholarships in that particular Open Award Cycle (the "Aggregate Amount"); but the number of Open Award scholarships to be awarded in any one Open Award Cycle will not be less than ten (10). The Aggregate Amount may range from a minimum of $3,000 to a maximum of $10,000, depending on factors such as the number of users and their level of participation in the Site during that Open Award Cycle. The number of Open Award scholarships to be awarded will be determined by dividing the Aggregate Amount by $300 and rounding down to the nearest whole number. For example, if the Aggregate Amount equals $3,000, the number of Open Award scholarships to be awarded in that Open Award Cycle will be 10 (3,000 divided by 300 = 10). If the Aggregate Amount equals $10,000, the number of Open Award scholarships to be awarded in that Open Award Cycle will be 33 (10,000 divided by 300 = 33.33, rounded down to 33). Any amount remaining after dividing the Aggregate Amount by 300 will not be awarded.

Open Award scholarships will be awarded at the end of each Open Award Cycle to the Candidates with the highest point totals earned during that Open Award Cycle (as detailed below). In order to count toward the point tabulation for an Open Award Cycle, a point must be received by a Candidate within that Open Award Cycle. Points earned in earlier Open Award Cycles, if any, are irrelevant to the point tabulation in the then current Open Award Cycle. However, whenever the Competition Period of any Sponsored Award or College Award overlaps two or more Open Award Cycles, then all points earned by eligible Candidates during those Open Award Cycles accumulate and are relevant to the point tabulation for such Sponsored Award or College Award.

Rookie Awards

The number and amount of Rookie Award scholarship(s) to be awarded in any Open Award Cycle will be posted by CollegeNET at the beginning of each Open Award Cycle on the home page of the Site. A Candidate is eligible to be awarded a Rookie Award if: (1) at the beginning of the applicable Open Award Cycle, he or she has made fewer than a total of 50 Postings to the Site; and (2) he or she does not win an Open Award scholarship in that particular Open Award Cycle.

A Rookie Award scholarship will be awarded at the end of each Open Award Cycle to the eligible Candidate with the highest point total earned among eligible Candidates during that Open Award Cycle (as detailed below). If no Candidate satisfies all of the applicable criteria for winning a Rookie Award scholarship, no Rookie Award scholarship will be awarded. In order to count toward the point tabulation for a Rookie Award, a point must be received by a Candidate within that Open Award Cycle. Points earned in earlier Open Award Cycles, if any, are irrelevant to the point tabulation in the then current Open Award Cycle. However, whenever the Competition Period of any Sponsored Award or College Award overlaps two or more Open Award Cycles, then all points earned by eligible Candidates during those Open Award Cycles accumulate and are relevant to the point tabulation for such Sponsored Award or College Award.

Tournament Awards

The number and amount of Tournament Award scholarship(s) to be awarded in any Tournament Period will be posted by CollegeNET at the beginning of each Tournament Period on the home page of the Site. There will be at least one Tournament Award scholarship to be awarded in a "Flash Runoff", which will occur after the end of each Tournament Period.

A Candidate is eligible to compete for a Tournament Award if he or she was awarded at least one (1) Open Award scholarship or Rookie Award scholarship during the most recently concluded Tournament Period ("Finalist"). At the end of the Tournament Period, the Finalists may participate in a "Flash Runoff" in which all challengers participating in the tournament period will vote for the winners of the Tournament Award based on the voting criteria as defined in voting rules above.

If at the end of the Flash Runoff Period, two (2) or more Finalists are tied in vote total for a particular Tournament Award, the tie will be broken as follows:

  • For each of the tied Finalists, the three (3) Open Award Cycles of the most recently concluded Tournament Period in which the Finalist accumulated the most points will be identified. These three (3) point totals will be added together for each Finalist, and the resulting point totals will be compared. The higher ranking will be given to the Finalist with the higher point total.
  • If there is still a tie, the total number of points accumulated by each of the tied Finalists during the most recently concluded Tournament Period will be compared. The higher ranking will be given to the Finalist with the higher point total.
  • If there is still a tie, the amount of the particular Tournament Award for which there is a tie will be combined with the amount(s) of some or all of the next lower place Tournament Award(s), if any, and split equally among the tied Finalists, as described in this paragraph. In the event of a tie, the number of combined Tournament Awards will equal the lesser of: (a) the total number of Finalists in the tie; or (b) the number or remaining Tournament Awards plus one (where the "one" is the Tournament Award for which there is a tie). Stated mathematically, if the number of Finalists in a tie equals "X", then the amount of the given Tournament Award plus the amounts of the next X-1 Tournament Awards (if any) will be combined and divided equally among those Finalists. Any amount remaining after dividing the sum equally among the tied Finalists will not be awarded.

Examples (for illustrative purposes only):

  • If two (2) Finalists are tied for the Second Place Tournament Award, and three (3) Tournament Awards are available in that Flash Runoff, the amounts of the Second and Third Place Tournament Awards (worth $7,000 and $3,000, respectively, for example) would be added together, totaling $10,000. The $10,000 would then be divided evenly among the two (2) Finalists who tied for the Second Place Tournament Award (i.e., each Finalist receiving $5,000).
  • If three (3) Finalists are tied for the Second Place Tournament Award, and three (3) Tournament Awards are available in that Flash Runoff, the amounts of the Second and Third Place Tournament Awards (worth $7,000 and $3,000, respectively, for example) would be added together, totaling $10,000. The $10,000 would then be divided evenly among the three (3) Finalists who tied for the Second Place Tournament Award and each amount rounded down to the nearest whole dollar (i.e., each Finalist receiving $3,333.00).

Sponsored Awards and College Awards

If any Sponsored Award scholarship(s) or College Award scholarship(s) are to be awarded in an Open Award Cycle, the number and amount(s) of any such scholarship(s) will be posted by CollegeNET on the home page of the Site at the beginning of the applicable Competition Period for such scholarship(s). A Sponsored Award scholarship or College Award scholarship may or may not be awarded in a particular Open Award Cycle. If no Candidate satisfies all of the applicable criteria for winning the Sponsored Award scholarship or the College Award scholarship, no Sponsored Award scholarship or College Award scholarship will be awarded.

Other Information

Except for a Tournament Award, if you are eligible for more than one scholarship (i.e., Open Award, Sponsored Award, or College Award), and: (a) the Competition Periods for two (2) or more of these scholarships terminate at the same time; and (b) you have the highest point total for two (2) or more of these scholarships, then you must choose which scholarship you will accept. Whichever scholarship(s) you do not accept will be awarded to the next highest point total recipient for that scholarship.

The aggregate maximum amount of scholarship money that may be awarded to a particular Candidate in the Election System is $10,000. If you receive the maximum amount of $10,000 in scholarships in the Election System, you are no longer eligible to participate as a Candidate, though you may continue to participate as a Voter.

Candidates are encouraged to participate diligently in the Election System by actively posting Submissions to the Site.

The odds of receiving a scholarship depend upon the number of participating Candidates and upon a Candidate's skill in persuading Voters and other Candidates to vote for him or her by posting Submissions.

Except for Flash Runoff voting, the voting system is weighted, and the scoring algorithm used to assign point value to each vote prevents ties from occurring.

CollegeNET will complete tabulation of votes within seven (7) days after the last day of each Competition Period. CollegeNET will attempt to contact each Candidate who earns a scholarship after point tabulation is completed using the email address in that Candidate's account at the time the scholarship is awarded.

In the event of a dispute about the identity of a particular Candidate, such Candidate will be declared to be the authorized account holder of the email address registered under such Candidate's account. An authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Each potential scholarship winner may be required to provide CollegeNET with information to verify his or her identity, including, without limitation, proof that he or she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Candidate's account.

A scholarship earned by a minor (as determined by the laws of state of residence) will be awarded to a parent or legal guardian on the minor's behalf. All scholarships are awarded "AS IS" and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied.

Disbursement Process; Forfeiting of Award

Scholarship funds will only be disbursed after the winning Candidate has completed CollegeNET's disbursement request process (the "Disbursement Process"), including providing all required information and documents. After the end of each calendar quarter, CollegeNET will send email to the Candidates that were awarded scholarships during that calendar quarter, with instructions on how to complete the Disbursement Process. The email will contain a link to the Winner Acknowledgement Form, which a winning Candidate must complete and submit within thirty (30) days after the end of the calendar quarter during which the Candidate earned the scholarship. A winning Candidate who does not complete and submit the Winner Acknowledgement Form within such thirty (30) day period will forfeit his or her scholarship.

In addition, a winning Candidate will have thirty (30) days after the end of the calendar quarter (the "Disbursement Request Period") to complete the Disbursement Process. If a Candidate does not complete the Disbursement Process prior to 5:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on the last day of the Disbursement Request Period, the Candidate does not forfeit the scholarship; but the Candidate will have to wait until a subsequent Disbursement Request Period (following a subsequent calendar quarter) to complete the Disbursement Process.

The calendar quarters and corresponding Disbursement Request Periods are:

January 1 - March 31 (Disbursement Request Period: April 1-30)

April 1 - June 30 (Disbursement Request Period: July 1-30)

July 1 - September 30 (Disbursement Request Period: October 1-30)

October 1 - December 31 (Disbursement Request Period: January 1-30)

All federal, state, and local taxes associated with the receipt or use of any scholarships are the sole responsibility of the scholarship recipient.

Any Candidate who is awarded a scholarship but does not within one (1) year of the conclusion of the calendar quarter during which the Candidate earned the scholarship complete the Disbursement Process and either: (a) use the scholarship to attend a College and be enrolled in a two (2) year, undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree program at the College; or (b) pay an unpaid balance on one or more Eligible Loans automatically forfeits his or her scholarship.
