Scholarships.com Relaunches Its Short & Tweet Scholarship

Highland Park, Ill. – Scholarships.com, the leading scholarship search service and financial aid information resource on the Internet, recently relaunched its popular Short & Tweet Scholarship, which rewards students for doing something they do every day: communicating online.

“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 & Tweet Scholarship, where students could win $1,000 or one of two Kindles for writing a 140-character Twitter post,” said Scholarships.com vice president Kevin Ladd. To enter, students must follow Scholarships.com on Twitter and mention @Scholarshipscom in a tweet answering the question “What’s your school-related resolution for 2013 and how will you stick to it?” The Scholarships.com Team will then determine which comments are most deserving of the awards.
