Calling all students!

Books, tuition fees, $3 coffees to get you through last-minute exam cramming... studenting is an expensive business!  It’s no surprise to us that sightseeing might be the last thing you’re able to spend your money on. 

Here at Go City, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the best of their local city. That’s why we’re giving one lucky winner the chance to explore nearby attractions for free with our passes. You can check out top museums and must-see landmarks, learn from the locals on a walking tour, or discover something you didn’t even know existed - we’ve got everything from bucket list spots to hidden gems, so there’s plenty for you to discover with Go City. 

Not only that, but we’ll also give the winner a one-time $5,000 academic scholarship award to put towards all those college musts. Whether you want to pay for accommodation, finally get a copy of that eye-wateringly expensive textbook, or bulk-buy several months' worth of instant ramen, how it’s spent is up to you!

So, what’s the scholarship?

The winner of the Go City Education Scholarship will receive:

  1. A 10-pass allowance* for you (plus your friends and family) to check out your local city’s best attractions and experiences. Find your nearest city on our website.
  2. A one-time award of $5,000 to put towards books, expenses and any other study necessities. The winner will have the funds transferred directly to their account. 

*Mix and match 10 of the following pass types:

  • The All-Inclusive Pass (with this pass you can visit as many attractions as you wish over two days). 
  • The Explorer Pass (with this pass you can choose four attractions to visit and you’ll have 60 days to visit them!).

What are the eligibility requirements?

To qualify for this scholarship you must be  enrolled at college or university, and either be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or currently studying in the U.S. on a student visa. Only one submission per person will be accepted.

When’s the deadline?

The deadline for this has now passed on August 1, 2022.
