If you’re like me, you probably took one look at most scholarships’ requirement to write an essay and groaned. 500 or 1,000 words are perhaps a small price to pay for free money for college, but not all of us are so gifted with the writing gene.
Thankfully, there are other options. Have you ever checked out ScholarshipPoints?
Their model is pretty different from other sites I’ve seen in that they,
- Don’t charge for their services (it’s free!), and,
- Don’t require you to write a grueling essay just for the chance of winning.
Instead, you complete different activities to build up the site’s currency — scholarship points. These “points” become the raw entries into their monthly and quarterly scholarships (up to $10,000!) and the more points you use, the better chance you have of winning.
As far as the activities go, none of it is particularly intensive. Reading a blog is a common one or filling out a simple opinion survey. All in all, much less frustrating and stressful than having to pump out words you probably don’t care about or want to write.
(If this doesn’t sound like it’s for you, they also have a scholarship search engine called StudentScholarshipSearch.)
