CollegeXpress is back with another year of easy scholarship contests for students! That’s right—we’re giving away more free scholarship money every month in 2023. They're super easy to enter—just create a free CollegeXpress account and answer our featured question in one word or sentence (we're talking stuff like “What’s your favorite color?” with no wrong answer!). After each month’s contest ends, one entry will be randomly selected to win—and any registered student from the US can win, even if you're not a college-bound senior yet! If you’re the lucky recipient, we’ll email you and add your name to this blog. Keep up-to-date each month with the list below, and be sure to bookmark this page to see who's won the latest contest.
