Quincy, MA (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
ScholarshipPoints.com, an Edvisors online education company working to make college education more affordable for students, today announced that it will award a $10,000 scholarship in October. This will be the third $10,000 scholarship awarded in 2009 and, along with numerous other monthly scholarships, brings the total free scholarships awarded by Edvisors and Scholarship Points to more than $60,000.
The ScholarshipPoints.com program has added over 200,000 members in 2009 alone, and is rapidly approaching the significant milestone of 500,000 members. Participation in the program is free, and members earn points by participating in surveys, reading helpful blogs, and engaging in other online activities. Accrued points can be exchanged for entries into any month's scholarship drawing, including the upcoming $10,000 giveaway. To ensure funds are used for educational purposes, awards are sent directly to the student's financial aid office.

"Students and their parents continue to face significant challenges in funding a college education," said Joe Cronin, President of Edvisors. "We are thrilled that Edvisors has awarded scholarships to 27 students so far this year, and we are committed to supporting students' dreams of higher education. Along with the $10,000 scholarship drawing in October and on-going monthly scholarships, we will continue to help students with their college and scholarship search, financial aid advice, and student loan needs."
The October $10,000 scholarship is supported by MarketTools ZoomPanel, a community of consumers who share their opinions and insights about companies' products and services by participating in market research studies. MarketTools ZoomPanelists receive rewards by qualifying for and completing online surveys. For each completed survey, students receive ZoomPoints that are redeemable for popular movies, music, electronics, and more.
"We are very excited to be sponsoring the October $10,000 scholarship giveaway through ScholarshipPoints.com," said Dan Henig, Director of Panel Acquisition at MarketTools, Inc. "We see a strong fit between ZoomPoints and ScholarshipPoints in benefiting students, and recognize Edvisors as an organization committed to helping students realize their dream of higher education. MarketTools is pleased to support that goal."
