Has anyone received this message to apply for UberScholar?

I did extensive Google searching and could come up with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about this so-called Uber Scholar Program. The link you provided takes us to a website completely unrelated to Uber, BUT it is asking for personal information.

So you expect forum members to upload personal information to some unknown website and risk having their identities stolen?

MODERATORS, please take note of this potential fraud.
Hey I think you misunderstood. I never asked people to give their personal info. I had a question if anyone else received this offer from Uber or not. Please read the first post.

I've seen other forms that I know to be legitimate from Uber hosted at that uberform.wufoo.com domain, so I don't think there's any serious concern of fraud here. I still wouldn't suggest submitting anything there until further information comes out about the program.

My email screenshot shows the message has been sent by [email protected]. Looks like I am the only person in this forum who got this message.
It is definitely not a fraud.
Anyway I just filled the application because I have a big student loan :p. It asked my name, email, and phone. The same information you gave them to send you uber sign. The only harm would be paying off my loan. :D

Uber helping you financially? Working as a "Partner" doesn't do that why would one think any other way?

I find it interesting that Uber occupies itself by trying to seemingly pinch pennies from and occupy drivers more than expanding its services to customers. Im sure a study would find that upsales to drivers exceeds riders. I don't like it.

This is ridiculous.
==================#
Hey,

Today we are excited to announce the launch of Uber Scholar- a pilot program to help Uber partners pay-down and manager their student debt! Student debt associated with pursuing an education can be overwhelming, but Uber is here to help you drive down debt with Uber Scholar!

HOW TO ENROLL:

YOU MUST SUBMIT A COPY OF YOUR MOST RECENT STUDENT DEBT BILL TO BE ELIGIBLE

SUBMIT PROOF HERE

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?

Loan Management:

Uber has partnered with Tuition.io to help you better understand and manage your student debt. As part of your participation in the UberScholar program, you have FREE access to Tuition.io.

ENROLL IN TUITION.IO

Higher Earnings:

You have invested in your education, so we are investing more in you - during peak-hours Uber will match 1% of your fares. That means if you earn $1,000 we will give you an additional $10 just for enrolling in the UberScholar program. The below schedule outlines when you are eligible for higher earnings.

*Matching will only be available starting 11/28/2014 to partners that have submitted proof of debt

DON'T FORGET TO SUBMIT YOUR PROOF OF DEBT BELOW TO BE ELIGIBLE

SUBMIT PROOF HERE

If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]

Cheers,

Uber DC
