Scholarship giveaways aid the average academic student

During the first months of senior year, students are especially prone to the stressors of the deadlines and to-do lists that come with the process of applying for college acceptance and scholarships.  While many students are able to apply for various scholarships which require relatively high grade point averages and test scores, others might seem to be at a loss. Thankfully, for some, there is an answer; enter in a tuition giveaway!  Although it’s rare for a full tuition award to be given, there are a few which do just that, as well as some that pay for the first year of college or the first couple thousand dollars to get the ball rolling.

$1,000 CollegeWeekLive Scholarship Giveaway.  This contest requires only a few basic steps for the chance to win up to $1,000 for the college of your choice.  The first step is to register for CollegeWeekLive. Next, the student must “visit” 3 colleges of his or her choice on their websites.  The CollegeWeekLive website is for benefiting students by allowing them to visit all of the schools of their choice with the click of a mouse. Once the student has visited the 3 colleges of his or her choice, he or she will be automatically entered into the competition.  The deadline for this contest is October 31, 2014.

Weekly Giveaway hosted by Zinch.com.  This contest is perhaps the easiest to enter and allows any student to become creative.  The website asks a question every week aimed at all prospective students, and the student with the best and most meaningful 3 sentence reply wins a $1,000 scholarship.  Students must first create an account on Zinch to enter the contest, then click ‘Go Apply’ on the scholarship’s page to see and answer the weekly question.  The deadline for this week’s question is November 3rd, 2014.

Create-a-Greeting-Card Scholarship Contest.  This contest is hosted by the Prudent Publishing Company /The Gallery Competition and aims to help creative students pay for their education as well as jumpstart their careers as they enter into today’s business world.  Students must submit an original photo, artwork, or computer graphic for the front of a greeting card that is appropriate for business and consumer use for the chance to win $10,000 to go towards tuition.  The deadline for this competition is Jan. 15, 2015.

Coca-Cola Scholars Program.   To be eligible for the $20,000 scholarship, students must complete a several paged application regarding their work experience, awards won, and academic performance.  The winner will be determined by discovering the application of the most outstanding student through their work experience and academic performance.  The deadline for submitting an application is October 31, 2014.
