Our wildly popular Scholarship Marathon is taking place on Saturday, March 22nd 2014, and just like last year, it will be an all day event.
And we are proud to announce that this year’s Scholarship Marathon will be co-hosted by our sister website, Cappex.com! That means that this event will be bigger and better than ever. So mark your calendars, and get ready to kick start this year’s scholarship search in style.
For those of you who haven’t heard about the Scholarship Marathon, here’s what you need to know:
The Scholarship Marathon is a free virtual event that runs all day at CollegeGreenlight.com. It starts at 9am, and is a chance for students from all over the country to win raffles, prizes, and money for college just for applying to scholarships!
How it works: on February 19th, registration will open at CollegeGreenlight.com. You’ll fill out some simple info, and if you don’t already have a College Greenlight profile you can complete one with your registration. Then on the 22nd you can join us online anytime from 9 to 9 (am to pm) to upload proof of your completed scholarship applications, enter raffles and giveaways, get one-on-one scholarship help from our team, and even win a $1,000 scholarship from us just for participating!
The Scholarship Marathon is a free way for you to get your students applying for scholarships! Last year dozens of our partners including SEO Scholars, College Possible, College Forward, and Chicago Scholars had students participate in droves. You can encourage your students to register online starting February 19th at CollegeGreenlight.com. And if you want to hold your own Scholarship Marathon event for your students on March 22nd, we’ve created a downloadable guide to help your planning process:
We can’t wait to see all the incredible scholarships you apply for this year! If you have any questions, or if you would like to partner with us for the Scholarship Marathon, send an email with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
