Scholarship Points Membership Tops Half a Million College Students

Share Article, a free college scholarship rewards program, has reached 500,000 members and will award up to $100,000 in scholarships to college students this year.

We enjoy doing this for students and we hope that we will be able to increase our award offerings every year.

This month,, an Edvisors online education company, surpassed a striking 500,000 members. Through the free scholarships program, is working to defray the ever increasing cost of college for students by giving away up to $100,000 in 2009. 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.

After awarding students a total of $40,000 in 2008, increased its commitment to students and is positioned to give away up to $100,000 this year including four $10,000 giveaways. In addition to these quarterly scholarships, the ScholarshipPoints program gives away a number of $500, $1,000 and $2,500 scholarships throughout the year.

With the addition of four $10,000 scholarships, has made a real difference in the education of many lucky students. "For some students $10,000 is the difference between being able to continue school for another semester and having to take a semester off," said Joe Cronin, CEO of Edvisors. "We enjoy doing this for students and we hope that we will be able to increase our award offerings every year."

To keep members coming back, strives to extend new and exciting offers and expand the number of awards available. In addition to giving away scholarships, exposes students to partner scholarship programs, educational blog posts and podcasts, and study abroad travel opportunities.

The next $10,000 scholarship winner will be drawn on October 31. Students have until October 30, 2009 to enter. To enter the October 31, $10,000 giveaway, and for announcements about the next $10,000 giveaway, visit
