EUGENE, OR, Nov., 14, 2018 – Tutortree is introducing the DuckAid Scholarship program for University of Oregon students on November 14, 2018. The on-demand peer-tutoring app recognizes that not all students have the financial support to afford private tutoring services. Tutortree is establishing the DuckAid scholarship program, which creates the opportunity for eligible students to receive 15 free tutoring sessions.

The DuckAid Scholarship is available to only University of Oregon students. In order to be eligible to receive the scholarship, applicants must either be paying for courses through loans, financial aid or part time work; or be enrolled in a course that may prevent them from graduating. The scholarship application will open when Tutortree receives at least $300 in donations towards the program. Donations can be made at jointutortree.com/duckaidscholarship.

“Many students struggling financially have no choice but to head to the free tutoring centers on campus and wait at least an half-hour just to get one question answered,” says Eli Ackerman, co-founder of Tutortree. “With the DuckAid Scholarship, recipients will gain have the opportunity to be have one-on-one tutoring with their peers, in-person, with various availability throughout the day.
