CollegeXpress is back with another year of mini scholarship contests for all students! That’s right—we’re giving away more free scholarship money every month in 2022. 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 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 won the latest contest.

I love this website and have been using it for years with my students. I originally bought products through Wintergreen Orchard House and appreciated having key facts at my fingertips when advising students. Your site is easy to access and offers a wide array of topics I need as a busy college counselor.

High School Class of 2022

CollegeXpress helped me narrow my school choices down from 10 schools to four and then two. It also gave me information on a school I had never heard about or thought about attending until now, which is the school I will be attending in the fall. I am thankful for CollegeXpress and its helpful tools.

I just discovered your site and LOVE it—fun, interesting, full of incredible information you can’t find anywhere else, and a godsend for those of us in the college counseling business. I am a fan!

High School Class of 2021

The college application process has been a stressful one, but CollegeXpress has eased some of that stress with its readily available college resources. At the beginning of the process, I frequently used the college search feature, and now that I’m almost done applying, I’ve started using the scholarship search. Both of these resources have made it easier to find relevant information.

CollegeXpress helped me organize the schools I wanted to choose from in one place, which then I could easily compare and find the school that was right for me!
