If you’re totally overwhelmed by trying to figure out scholarships and paying for college, look no further than the second annual Scholarship Marathon! It’s free, it’s online and it’s taking place today, Saturday, March 22. College Greenlight, which helps low-income and underrepresented students go to college, and Cappex, which has helped five million students decide on colleges, are the two groups behind this.
Today you’ll have access to chatrooms with scholarship experts (to answer all your Q’s) and webinars that explain financial aid and scholarships. Webinars like “The Science Behind the Ultimate Scholarship Essay” and “Winning Big Money Scholarships.” They’re also there to help you search for more scholarships you don’t even know about.
To top it off, they’re going to have hourly raffles for Amazon gift cards (because everybody loves a good raffle) and they have two $1,000 scholarships ready to be given to participants! This is going on from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CDT, but you can drop in whenever you want.
If you want to take part, you just need to sign up at the site. Remember, it’s free, so you def ought to check it out if college is your jam! And if you want to spread the good word on this, you can tweet the hashtag #scholarshipmarathon. Hopefully the second annual Scholarship Marathon will be even bigger and better than the first one!
