While I love attending a private liberal arts school, the costs associated with my education can be overwhelming

Quincy, MA (PRWEB) September 1, 2009

ScholarshipPoints.com, an Edvisors online education company working to make college education more affordable for students, recently topped the 400,000 member mark and is on pace to hand out more than $100,000 in free scholarships in 2009, highlighted by three separate $10,000 scholarship awards.

Tiffany Beebe became the latest $10,000 scholarship award recipient last month, joining previous winner Jonathan Olson. Beebe, a junior at the College of Idaho, was thrilled to learn of her $10,000 scholarship. "While I love attending a private liberal arts school, the costs associated with my education can be overwhelming," Beebe said. "My family and I are extremely grateful for this scholarship!"

Over the past year the Scholarship Points program has expanded to keep up with the ever-increasing financial aid needs of families. "We were excited to offer $25,000 in scholarship awards in 2008," said Joe Cronin, CEO of Edvisors and the Student Loan Network. "But given the current state of the economy and limited resources available to families today, we knew we could have a truly profound impact by quadrupling the amount of scholarship dollars we were giving and helping even more students in 2009."

The ScholarshipPoints membership program is free. As part of this program, students earn Points each month by participating in surveys and other online activities. Accrued points can be exchanged for entries into any month's scholarship drawing. The program is open to graduating high school students and current college students. Funds are sent to the student's financial aid office. Learn more at ScholarshipPoints.com

Applications are now being accepted through October 31, 2009 for the final $10,000 scholarship of 2009. The winner will be drawn on Tuesday, November 1. To enter, students should visit http://www.ScholarshipPoints.com.
