Easy Scholarships to Apply For!


Are you a United States citizen and a high school senior or college undergraduate student? Then you can win $500. Nope, no other qualifications. Just be what you already are.

The $500 “Because College is Expensive Scholarship” is open to all students and those planning on enrolling within 12 months. The winner will be determined by random drawing and then contacted directly and announced on the Scholarship Winners page. One entry per person is all that is necessary.

It truly doesn’t get easier than that.


Each year, U.S. Bank gives away 40 $1,000 scholarships for simply being an American citizen who will be or is attending college. All you have to do is fill out some basic information about yourself to enter the random.


The nice thing about the $2,000 “No essay” Scholarship is that it comes once a month and you can apply every single month.

And the application is as easy as can be. In fact, you could have filled it out probably 10 times already since starting to read this blog. You can only apply once a month, but if you’re a current or incoming college student and know basic information about yourself (name, address, etc.), then you can win $2,000. Winners are drawn at random.


Even better than once-a-month scholarship is one that is once a week. Granted, the Zinch.com weekly scholarship is not as simple as merely filling out basic information about yourself, but it’s almost that simple.

All U.S. high schoolers and college students are eligible for this $1,000 scholarship. All it requires is filling out a short form about yourself and answering an unusual question in 280 characters or less and the best part is that the question changes weekly. You can apply every week, once a week. Have fun with your answers.


Simply register on their the website (which requires answering less than 15 basic questions about yourself) and you’re automatically entered for the next scholarship drawing of $10,000. It takes only a couple of minutes and is easy to apply?

Before reaching out for student loans, exhaust all possible resources. We have given you some easy ones to think about and should take advantage of.

If you strike out on scholarships, remember to exhaust your federal student loans first before turning to private students loans. Check out Cedar Ed Private student loans for quick and easy loan comparisons.

New Graduate Program Search Site

Not sure if you recently say the news, but there is a new Graduate Program search site, www.graduateprograms.com.The website will provide a space for current students to share their thoughts about their graduate program through a Rate and Review system. Students will choose the number of stars that accurately correspond with their opinion about aspects of the program’s athletics, campus housing, etc. and then leave a short comment. Graduate Programs will list student comments and starred reviews so students can read them when they’re making their decisions about their graduate program choices. Think of it as a forward-thinking marriage between the Princeton Review and Yelp.
Students who Rate and Review their program will be entered to win a $1,000 Graduate School Scholarshipaward toward their graduate school tuition. These $1,000 scholarships will be awarded once per semester (four times per year). Understanding that recent graduates have much to contribute to the conversation, Graduate Programs also allows those who graduated in the last five years to participate in the Rate and Review system and use the scholarship toward loan repayment.
