ScholarshipPoints.com Scholarships

Website: http://www.scholarshippoints.com/about.php

Who's Eligible: High school and college students

Award Amount: Up to $20,000

Due Date: Rolling


One of the weirder scholarships programs out there, Scholarshippoints.com requires candidates to earn points by completing online activities including taking short quizzes, testing out online games, reading blogs, and taking opinion surveys. For each point they earn in Scholarship Points currency, they receive a free entry into a monthly $1,000 drawing or a quarterly $10,000 drawing. Your grades, financial need, and test scores will not factor into your chances of winning at all, but how long you stay plugging into the site will. (It feels a little bit like a marketing gimmick but the money seems real.)
