Quincy, MA October 23, 2009 â€“ This month, ScholarshipPoints.com, an Edvisors online education company, surpassed a striking 500,000 members. Through the free scholarships program, ScholarshipPoints.com is working to defray the ever increasing cost of college for students by giving away up to $100,000 in 2009.Â Participation in the program is free, and members earn points by participating in surveys, reading helpful blogs, and engaging in other online activities. Accrued points can be exchanged for entries into any monthâ€™s scholarship drawing, including the upcoming $10,000 giveaway. To ensure funds are used for educational purposes, awards are sent directly to the studentâ€™s financial aid office.
After awarding students a total of $40,000 in 2008, ScholarshipPoints.com increased itâ€™s commitment to students and is positioned to give away up to $100,000 this year including four $10,000 giveaways.Â In addition to these quarterly scholarships, the ScholarshipPoints program gives away a number of $500, $1,000 and $2,500 scholarships throughout the year.
With the addition of four $10,000 scholarships, ScholarshipPoints.com has made a real difference in the education of many lucky students.Â Â â€œFor some students $10,000 is the difference between being able to continue school for another semester and having to take a semester off,â€ said Joe Cronin, CEO of Edvisors. â€œWe enjoy doing this for students and we hope that we will be able to increase our award offerings every year.â€
To keep members coming back, ScholarshipPoints.com strives to extend new and exciting offers and expand the number of awards available.
