are scholarships from nitro and niche really legit or are they a scam??

i’m not talking about the ones they have posted from 3rd parties, i mean the ones that are like $1000 one click monthly entry things. i’m a member of a couple discord servers/google classrooms full of people who apply to them and yet i’ve never once come across someone that’s actually won one, which makes me skeptical about their legitimacy. just wondering if any of you have won or if you know someone who has so i can figure out if it’s a waste of time or not lol

I think they are legit, just so so many people are applying to them so it is difficult to learn. It's just random, like for example I won a collegevine scholarship after applying 50x and even then it was just luck. Honestly a lot of this college stuff is luck. I would focus more on scholarships where they do look at merit but even then there are lots of competitive applicants and it is somewhat random luck who they chose to give the scholarship because everyone is equally qualified and deserving. I hope this makes sense! Best of luck

Scholarships like Nitro and Niche are legit but hard to win. The easier the scholarship the harder to earn which is why many don't waste their time on those kinds of scholarships. It takes time, patience, and persistence to win. So if your looking for something quick and easy this is the way to go but if you want to actually win I suggest researching scholarships based on your own personal talents.
