Scholarship Contests & Sweepstakes
Scholarship contests and sweepstakes are some of the easiest and quickest ways to land money for college. They typically do not request your academic achievements, standardized test scores, or an essay. The requirements may be as simple as completing an online form, providing some contact information or answering some quick questions. That could mean a lot of scholarship money for little to no effort!
Be mindful that, due to the random selection process, you may be less likely to win. Your chances of winning a sweepstake or contest vary based on the number of applicants who enter each drawing.
As always, beware of scholarship scams. You should never have to pay a fee to win scholarships. Ultimately, someone has to win the sweepstakes, so if you're feeling lucky, consider applying for a chance to win!
