Earlier this year, I posted a link to the Save Me A Spot in College Scholarship Contest, and now I have to share a video from one of the grand prize winners.  I think it is truly awesome!

If you’re still wondering how to foot those college tuition bills for next fall, check out Zinch.com’s Ammunition for Tuition II Scholarship.  It requires creating a profile on Zinch, and once you do that you’ll be able to search additional scholarships on the site, plus use additional resources like college search and networking with other students.  And one of the best things about the Scholarship Matching Page is that Zinch will match dollar-for-dollar any scholarship found and won through their search engine — makes the effort of applying for those $500 scholarships a little more worth it.  Below are the details for the Ammunition for Tuition II Scholarship.  Good luck!

Amount: $20,000
Deadline: June 25, 2009
Eligibility: Current high school student (international students included), graduating in 2009- 2012, with a minimum 2.0 gpa. You must register on Zinch.com and your profile must be as complete as possible.

Last week I attended a reception for College Summit (an awesome non-profit that helps low-income and first generation students prepare for college) and while there I met Michele Siqueiros, the executive director for The Campaign for College Opportunity.  She and her staff are doing all they can to make sure that California continues to invest in quality educational programs, and here’s how you can help.

Now through March 15th, 2009 The Campaign for College Opportunity is accepting submissions for their scholarship contest “Save Me A Spot In College,” and they’re giving away $125,000 in scholarships ranging from $500 to $2500 prizes.  To enter the contest, you must be a 6 – 12th grade student in California and submit either an essay, poster, or TV Ad answering the question “Why should California leaders save you and your peers a spot in college?”

This is a great opportunity to put your creative skills to work for a good cause, let legislators know why college is important to you, and possibly earn yourself a college scholarship.  And who knows?  Your submission just might be the one that convinces our leaders to spend more money on education.  Good luck!

Scholarship essays got you down?  Well, take a break and throw your creative energy into designing a tote bag at Startiste.  You could win a limited edition bag, a shopping spree at Startiste, or the grand prize of college tuition funds.  They don’t specify exactly how much scholarship money is at stake, but every little bit helps, right?  It doesn’t cost anything to apply, and you can submit as many designs as you’d like until the November 1, 2008 deadline.  So visit Startiste to get started, and maybe I’ll see your fabulous design in stores soon!

And…don’t forget to let me know if you submit a tote, so I can visit the site and vote for your design!
