Hyperfavor is a company that focuses on letting people create personalizable items to show the world how unique they are. Thus, we wish to honor college students who also embrace this mission, and those who are eager to spread self-positivity messages.

The outfit you wear can say a lot about who you are. But how do you also explain your one-of-a-kind self in words? By showing what kind of clothing you identify yourself with, you can have a chance of receiving $1,000 to fund for your education.

2 winners will be chosen and awarded with the scholarship.

Scholarship Details

Having been launched since 2020 with amazing students awarded, Hyperfavor’s Shine Your Own Way Scholarship is an initiative to boost students’ confidence and self-love. We believe that all students will achieve more in both their academic journey and their future, if they are proud to show their unique identity.

Write an essay of 250-300 words (not exceeding 300 words), answering the following question: “If you’re a shirt, what kind of shirt would you be?”

Post a picture of the shirt that represents your answer on Instagram, with your essay as the caption. It can be any shirt that makes you feel “Yep, that’s definitely me as a shirt!” You can be creative and design a shirt of your own (physical or digital designs are accepted), but store bought shirts are also welcomed.

Place the #hyperfavorscholarship hashtag under your post (required) so that we can easily find your submission.

Fill in our application form with necessary information. Once you've filled out the form and posted the picture, we will notify you by email to confirm that we’ve successfully received your application.
