The more members we have actively participating in our site the more scholarship money we will be able to give away in the future.
Quincy, MA (PRWEB) February 8, 2010
This month, ScholarshipPoints (http://www.scholarshippoints.com), an Edvisors online education company, reached a membership of 750,000 college students. This milestone comes just three months after surpassing half a million members. Through the free scholarships program, ScholarshipPoints will help students of all ages achieve their dreams of a college education by giving away up to $100,000 in 2010. To ensure funds are used for educational purposes, awards are sent directly to the student’s financial aid office.
Participation in the college scholarship rewards program is free and students can win just by becoming members. Students increase their chances of winning by earning points, called scholarship points, and entering them into monthly drawings for free scholarships. Members earn points by taking surveys, reading blog posts about paying for and saving money while in college, and completing other engaging activities.
By giving away over $75,000 in 2009 and a projected $100,000 in 2010, ScholarshipPoints is making strides towards alleviating some of the financial burden that comes with paying for college. “It is exciting to see the ScholarshipPoints program growing so quickly,” said Joe Cronin, CEO of Edvisors. “The more members we have actively participating in our site the more scholarship money we will be able to give away in the future.”
In addition to giving away scholarship money, ScholarshipPoints.com strives to connect students to partner scholarship programs, financial aid help and advice, and study abroad travel opportunities.
The next $10,000 scholarship winner will be drawn on March 15. Interested students should join at http://www.ScholarshipPoints.com/10K/ by March 14, 2010 to become eligible for this and other monthly scholarship giveaways.
