Yellow Scholarship Marathon Countdown

The Second Annual Scholarship Marathon is right around the corner! To get you ready, we’ve got 2 weeks of great tips to help you prep plenty of scholarship applications. Follow our advice and you’ll not only become an expert at tackling tons of scholarships, but you’ll be ahead of the pack on the day of the marathon. Remember, the Marathon is on Saturday, March 22nd, and runs all day from 9am-9pm CST.

If you haven’t registered yet, it’s easy, and you can get started at this link.

Now for today’s tip: get your final preparations completed!

If you have essays to finish, transcripts to print, or test scores to gather, get all those details completed before the big day.

We also want to make sure you’re aware of how much awesomeness (yes that’s a word) is going to be packed into Saturday. If you’ve already registered, you’ll get an email on Saturday morning with a link to the Scholarship Marathon event space. When you log in we’ve produced a short video to introduce you to the space and give you some simple tips on how to find and apply for the best scholarships.

From there it’s all scholarships, all day! You can upload proof of your completed scholarship applications right on our site. Each of your applications will be considered for our hourly raffles of Amazon gift cards worth anywhere from $25 to $100. Plus, your entries will be considered for our $1,000 Scholarship Marathon Scholarship, which will be awarded a few weeks after the marathon.

We will also have a bunch of chatrooms for you to check out, where you can get advice on how to pay for college to how to write a better and more persuasive scholarship essay.

Finally, we are excited about our three awesome webinars. These webinars will be hosted by different experts in the college and scholarship world. Here’s the times and basic info on each of these webinars:

11am CST: The Science Behind the Ultimate Scholarship Essay with Diane Melville of Transfer Bootcamp

1pm CST: Class of 2015 – How to Prepare for Your Future with Erin Howell of Cappex

3pm CST: Winning Big Money Scholarships with Klondy Canales of Scholarship Junkies

We can’t wait to see you Saturday!
