WHAT ARE MONTHLY SCHOLARSHIPS?
Monthly scholarships are contests that allow you to enter every month. Often, they pick winner(s) for each monthly deadline, rather than on an annual basis.
There are two ways to win a scholarship. One is through a random drawing. The other when panel judges vote for your stand-out entry.
HOW TO APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP?
To apply for a monthly scholarship can be as simple as creating a free user profile. All you do is fill out your contact info such as your name, email, age, school info and other necessary information.
These ‘scholarships’ have the look and feel of sweepstakes. Enter to win. And do so often to improve your odds.
