Enter to win the Brave $2,500 college scholarship, and get your original art in front of Brave’s 60 million users

Brave is kicking off the 2023 back-to-school season with an opportunity for all US full-time college students who are at least 18 years old to enter to win a scholarship.

From September 18 to October 18, 2023, US college students can submit their best photo art to Brave. The winner will have their photo art seen by Brave’s 60 million worldwide users as a featured background on the Brave browser new tab page. They’ll also win a $2,500 scholarship to use toward tuition, books, or anything else college requires!

To enter the scholarship contest, applicants must:

  • Choose one (1) original piece of abstract landscape, nature, and/or architecture photo art (no people or personally identifiable info can be visible), with a minimum resolution of 2560x1440 pixels

  • Submit the photo as a JPEG file via either 1) a post to one of Brave’s official social media handles on X (formerly Twitter) (@brave) or Instagram (@bravebrowser) with the hashtag #BraveScholarship; or 2) the scholarship Web form

  • Provide us with their name, university name, email address, and home address (provided on either the scholarship Web form, or during the winner confirmation process*)

A panel of judges will review the submissions and select one winning photo using the criteria set forth in the Official Rules. Brave will notify the winner on November 6, 2023, via the email contact information provided in the entry process. We will announce the winner on or around that same date, and the winner’s original photo art will be featured on rotation on the Brave new tab page.

Important note:

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Open to residents of the United States who are at least 18 years old at the time of entry and are enrolled at an accredited college or university in the United States.
