Easy scholarships for everyone!

By Tamara

Are you one of those students whose grade point average hovers between a 2.0 and 3.0? Do you dread the idea of writing long essays? Maybe you’re just an average, white male who thinks scholarship providers have passed you by. In any case, I have some great news. There are plenty of scholarship opportunities for students just like you! I’m not talking about those need-based scholarships where you have to provide proof of financial hardship or those that are awarded based on your ethnicity; these scholarship applications are all fun and simple to fill out. In fact, when it comes to college scholarships, these programs put the ‘ease’ in ‘easy!’

5. ScholarshipPoints Scholarship

Every month, ScholarshipPoints gives away thousands of dollars to students, and one lucky winner receives a $10,000 scholarship each quarter.

Life would be a lot simpler if we all had a magic genie to make our college expenses disappear, but unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. Hopefully, these easy scholarships will get you started and will help motivate you to try some other programs, too. Remember, you don’t have to be a rocket-scientist or a brilliant writer to win scholarships, but you do need to apply. Looking for more easy scholarships?
