"I've been signed up to yconic for a few years now and it's a really awesome way for students to earn scholarships for school. It's as simple as making a profile with your information and the website actually matches you with contests and scholarships you're eligible to based on the information you provide. yconic provides students with great opportunities all on one platform and they pair with brands that also want to help students and youth, such as Scotiabank. I've done all my banking with Scotiabank my entire life and I have been completely satisfied with the service I've received. They are always coming out with new contests and scholarships, as well as bank accounts specialized for students which is really important. When I received the call saying I was a winner for the bonus prize of this contest I was really happy. Being a student is an amazing experience but it is also very expensive and it's nice to know that there are companies out there who want to support and make your life as a student a little bit easier."
