Winning scholarship money is great but doing so without having to meet astronomical word counts and double-digit page requirements is even better. That’s why we’ve launched the Short and Tweet Scholarship, where you could win $1,000 for writing a 140-characters Twitter post!
In addition to the 2.7 million scholarships already in our database, we’ve created the Short and Tweet Twitter Scholarship, which rewards students for doing something they do every day: communicate online. To enter, simply log on to Twitter (create an account if you don’t already have one), follow us, then @reply us and explain what an extra $1,000 for college would mean to you as creatively and meaningfully as possible.
That’s it. No lengthy essay. No paperwork. Just your thoughts, in real time. Good luck!
Step 1: Follow Scholarships.com on Twitter.
Step 2: @reply us with a tweet answering the question “What would an extra $1,000 for college mean to you?” Once you do this, you are automatically entered to win a $1,000 scholarship.
Step 3: You may enter as many times as you want but please limit your tweets to a reasonable amount per day. Each tweet will be a stand-alone entry and tweets that are submitted by non-followers, exceed 140 characters, do not include @Scholarshipscom or are submitted after the May 31st deadline will not be considered. From there, the Scholarships.com Team will determine which comment is most deserving of the award.
