Cash flying around with the words Scholarship Saturday.

Scholarship Saturday: November 2021

Looking for free money to pay for college? Check out this month's round-up of featured awards for Scholarship Saturday!

Scholarships are an incredibly important part of being able to afford your college journey. Unlike student loans, you don’t need to pay scholarship money back, so you should apply to as many as possible! Each month, CollegeXpress highlights upcoming awards and contests as part of “Scholarship Saturday” to help make your search a little easier. Check out the featured awards below, and be sure to apply if you’re eligible. Good luck!

Upcoming Deadlines

$10,000 | ScholarshipPoints Scholarship

Chances of receiving the awards or odds of qualifying for additional scholarships are increased by taking surveys, reading blogs, and other easy activities.

$5,000 | Easy Scholarship: Be Creative, Build Community

You could win an easy $5,000 scholarship by sharing your art with your community digitally (via text, email, DM, or publicly on social media) or in-person. Bring art, music and joy to our communities *and* be automatically entered to win a $5,000 scholarship. Yep, it’s that easy!

College is a way of life that helps us find out who we are as a person, and CollegeXpress is a great way to stay connected with our future, even for students with little time on their hands due to the challenges of high school we face.

CollegeXpress helped me find Allegheny with the super user-friendly search tool for both schools and scholarships. Using CollegeXpress, I was able to search for programs I was interested in studying and find colleges that offered those programs. Also, once you search for the college, CollegeXpress can get you connected!

CollegeXpress has helped me explore my views on college in that "why do I wanna go to a certain school" way. It’s helped me explore the best fits in all of these outstanding choices. All these college admission counselors can access my accolades showing them how I could help their college. This source of information helps me show these admission directors who I am and what I'm interested in. Thanks to this platform, my experience for education will be better than most, and I'm so grateful for all that it has provided for me.

Throughout my search for colleges I was afraid and timid, but I finally found the college that was fit for me, and luckily, I got accepted. One of the most influential things that’s helped me a lot was the articles and advice on CollegeXpress. It’s helped me a lot and benefited me as a senior to make the right choices in life. Thank you!
