With this scholarship I will be able to work less and focus more on schooling, an Edvisors online education company, recently awarded its second $10,000 scholarship of 2010. This scholarship award is a testament to ScholarshipPoints’ commitment to defraying the cost of college for students in need of financial assistance. Through their 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.

Kyle Urbanec, a student at Southeast Community College Lincoln, became the latest $10,000 scholarship winner through the March drawing. “With this scholarship I will be able to work less and focus more on schooling,” said Kyle. “I just signed up for ScholarshipPoints in January and I can’t believe I was chosen.”

In addition to a number of annual $10,000 scholarships, ScholarshipPoints gives away a number of $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 awards throughout the year. The ScholarshipPoints team hopes to be able to increase award amounts on a monthly basis going forward.

The ScholarshipPoints program has grown exponentially since 2008. In fact, membership has more than doubled in the past 12 months with 530,000 new members. In 2010 alone the site has already gained over 200,000 new members. “Because of our outstanding membership growth we are able to offer multiple scholarship contests every month. This keeps all of our members engaged,” said Gregg Manning, Director of Internet Strategy for “The more members we have, the more money we will be able to give away in the future.”

The next $10,000 scholarship winner will be drawn on June 15, 2010. Students have until June 14, 2010 to enter. To enter the June 15 $10,000 giveaway, and for announcements about future giveaways, visit
