How do Destiny Project Competitions Work?
It’s actually pretty simple. We've partnered with Rapunzl to allow you to simulate a $10,000 stock portfolio - absolutely free! Just search Rapunzl on the AppStore or Google Play Store and download the free app. Then, create a free Rapunzl account using your school email. Rapunzl will send you an email verifying your account and then you’re all set!

Use the $10,000 to buy and sell stocks using near real-time data. The top performing portfolios for each Destiny Project Competition win prizes and every student has the opportunity to write an essay about their portfolio to win even MORE scholarship prizes!
What's The Catch?
There’s no catch! Rapunzl does not collect personally identifiable information on students or any Rapunzl users for that matter.

The Destiny Project uses these competitions to source talented individuals interested in learning more about financial services & accessing career opportunities; however, we also use industry best practices to only collect data relevant to our non-profit impact assessments.

We strongly believe that people should earn while they learn to invest and that our investment competitions will create a new way for young investors to enter the world of investing.
And I Don't Have To Pay?
Absolutely not! Competing in The Destiny Project's Scholarship Competitions is, and always will be, free.

Furthermore, we have scholarship opportunities that don't involve how well your portfolio performs in the competition, so be sure to enter our Destiny Scholar Essay Contest!
How Can I Win Scholarship Prizes?
Together with Global Learning Labs & Rapunzl, The Destiny Project is hosting 3-5 exciting competitions during the 2020-2021 Academic Year in Chicago, LA and New York City!

These competitions are sponsored by some of the leading financial firms, so the stakes are higher. Not only are there smaller scholarship prizes for the top portfolios, but the students who submit the best Portfolio Defense Essay also win scholarships! What's more? They can then join The Destiny Project's Financial Scholar Program and earn an internship on Wall Street!
