How our Free Online Student Scholarship Contest Works
Entering to win our free scholarship for college is fast and easy. All you have to do is complete a short form to tell us a little about yourself and answer one essay question in 250 words or less. What is the essay question you ask?
We want you to tell us: How has choosing an online college enabled you to finish your education?
In order to qualify for the free scholarship for college, you must be:
- A legal U.S. resident of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia ;
- 18 years of age or older at the time of application
- Enrolled or enrolling in an online college, and/or an online for-credit degree program at an accredited post-secondary institution of higher learning
- See the Official Scholarship Rules for a complete set of eligibility requirements
Our experienced internal panel will serve as a scholarship review committee to assess applications for completeness, timeliness, eligibility criteria, and following the rules. Next, applications will be reviewed for originality and creativity. The remaining applications shall be considered in a semi-final holistic, blind-review process. Contenders will then be identified by the committee and the top-scoring applications shall move into the Semi-Finalist pool. Once Semi-Finalists are contacted and respond with appropriate verification documentation (i.e., any necessary proof of grades, residency/citizenship, etc.), the Finalist(s) will be verified, contacted, and publicized.
In order to qualify for the free scholarship for college, you must complete the application and submit your essay response no later than February 28, 2018. The winner notification will occur on or about May 31, 2018.
