Are you referring to offering a small scholarship and then getting a university to link to the page for it?
If so – yes, edu is still valuable & works. But the process is convoluted and universities are getting smarter.
Just note that if the page has tons of spammy backlinks to sites Google believes is fraudulent or phishing, it will devalue or disavow the page.
