The time is now
make it yours
Per Academic year
We believe education is paramount in shaping the future of our society. Therefore, Swopsmart has created the Swopsmart Scholarship Initiative to award a $2000 scholarship to the winner. Our hope is to be able to alleviate some of the financial burden students face when paying for college related expenses.
Swopsmart aims to provide one scholarship per academic year. Applicants are encouraged to apply once every year. However, winners are only eligible to receive the Swopsmart Scholarship one time.
Swopsmart is a small company that is looking to transcend the way we, as a society, dispose of old devices. Our goal is to provide an easy and efficient way for our customers to sell their used devices at a fair trade in value without the fear of being deceived or cheated. We pay top dollar for all devices while still providing the fastest turn around time on payments online.
