"Tell A Friend" Winners

You’ve probably played "Telephone" at some point in your life. You know, the game where you tell your friend a secret, they tell another friend, that friend tells yet another friend and by the time it gets back to you, the final message sounds nothing like your original statement? Sure it’s fun to see how the initial dispatch changes but at Scholarships.com, we created a better way to share information with your friends while earning money for college with the Tell A Friend Scholarship. With a $1,000 award on the line, that’s a message that definitely won’t get lost in translation!

Some scholarships require lengthy essays and multiple letters of recommendation but the beauty of the Tell A Friend Scholarship lies in its simplicity: All you have to do is create a profile on Scholarships.com, try our free scholarship search, then tell your friends to do the same. For every friend that takes your advice, you and that friend are entered to win $1,000 to put toward tuition, room and board, books or other college living expenses. Pretty great, right? We think so and so do our past winners, who include high school students applying for their very first scholarship, existing college students looking to defray the cost of higher education and parents returning to school after an extended absence.
