2. Locate local academy HERE.
3. Student applies by submitting their application HERE. Student must indicate “5LINX'” and the Representative’s name in the “Recommender” box on the online application. Submissions are due August 15th.
4. Once students have submitted their application, local YEA! chapters will
review applications and choose 1-2 students from each location to become a ‘5LINX sponsored student’ – Both student & 5LINX Representative will be contacted.
5. A ‘GoFundMe’ account will be created for each student by their local chapter. The 5LINX Representative and sponsored student are encouraged to work as a team to share their story on social media, 5LINX PBRs, in efforts to raise $1,000 to cover their annual tuition fee.
6. 5LINX is proud of donate the first $100 to each ‘GoFundMe’ account per sponsored student.
7. Recipients and their parent/guardian will be required to agree to scholarship acceptance terms including providing updates to the supporting local 5LINX corporate team.

If you are not able to ‘Sponsor a Student’ but want to support the cause, this section is for you! 5LINX is proud to announce a 5LINX Scholarship program designed to help provide qualified students with financial support to cover a 1-year annual enrollment fee. Show your support by donating to the 5LINX Scholarship program. One student will then be chosen to attend a 5LINX International Training Event at no cost. This is their chance to present their business idea and share their experience with YEA!
Let’s work together to give our young entrepreneur a chance to turn their ideas into real, profitable businesses! and who knows, maybe one day they will become successful 5LINX Representatives!
