If you are a full or part-time student (at least 18 years old) of an accredited college or university and have a legitimate blog (no spam) then you qualify for the SPENDonLIFE $2000 Credit Blogging Scholarship. SPENDonLIFE is promoting a writing contest in which the students must blog about the importance of credit and how it affects their lives or the dangers of identity theft. The post content has only two requirements: the size (it should be no longer than 400 words) and must provide instructions about how students can participate in this writing contest.
I am not a student, so I do not qualify for this contest. However, I think this is a brilliant idea. Of course, with this blogging scholarship SPENDonLIFE is trying to attract attention to their site. But in a legitimate way. The contest site has no ads or a commercial purpose. SPENDonLIFE states on the site that they have a college scholarship program to those with problems in obtaining a student loan. Their goal is to award up to 10 college scholarships a year, ranging from $500 to $5000 a year. So, this blogging scholarship is only one more.
The bloggers must submit the blog entry URL until December 1st by filling a contact form. The winner will be announced on January 1st.
