Starving Students Speak
Here at Learn.org, we get a lot of our scholarship ideas from surveying our readers, and our latest, the Starving Student Scholarship, is no exception. We asked students to share their 'biggest barrier to getting an education.' An overwhelming majority answered, 'money!'
Students like you know that tuition and books are just the beginning of the expenses associated with college: you've got rent, gas and food to think about, too! We'd like to help you solve that problem in a very simple way: by giving $1000 to one of our student readers.
Entering is simple:
2. Fill out our quick entry form and share your most creative solution to saving money as a student to be entered to win the $1000 scholarship.
3. Copy and paste your creative money-saving idea as a comment on the Learn.org Facebook wall. If your comment receives the most 'likes' you will win our secondary prize of $500!
That's it! Your suggestion can be anything related to cost of living while in school: from carpooling to save on gas to stealing your roommate's laundry detergent to wash your clothes (though you might not want to admit to that on Facebook). You can do this anytime between November 30, 2011 and January 1, 2012. If you submit our favorite tip, you'll win the $1000 scholarship!
