Is ScholarshipPoints Legit?
ScholarshipPoints is completely legit. We have awarded more than $1 million in scholarships since 2006. At ScholarshipPoints, we help students pay for college by awarding scholarships on a monthly and quarterly basis.
Our winner’s wall has an up-to-date list of students who have been awarded scholarships. You can view recipients by year by clicking the "Select Year" drop-down.
ScholarshipPoints.com is owned and operated by Edvisors. Founded in 1998, Edvisors is a respected expert in higher-education with great resources to help students and families plan and pay for college.
Attending college can be expensive, and finding and applying for scholarships can be a daunting task. Because of these factors, Edvisors created ScholarshipPoints to give students more ways to find money for their education.
Check out this video of Rachel, one of the recipients of our $10,000 quarterly scholarship, the most prized award we offer. Rachel’s story is a great example of how ScholarshipPoints is making a difference in the lives of students looking for ways to pay for college.
Now that's legit.
What Makes Us Different
ScholarshipPoints is unique compared to many of the other scholarship sites out there. For starters, most of our scholarships do not require an essay and are not merit-based. That means even if you don’t have a strong GPA or tons of extracurricular activities to brag about, you could still win. On top of that, ScholarshipPoints gives out awards throughout the year. There isn’t just one grand prize, and we offer scholarships in lower amounts to help even more students win.
There are other scholarship sites that allow students to enter into sweepstakes to win a scholarship, but students typically only get one entry into a single sweepstakes. With ScholarshipPoints, you can earn as many points as possible and spend them to enter either one or multiple sweepstakes.
And you can even submit for a chance to win one of our partners’ sweepstakes. Yes, we partner with other companies to sweeten the pot.
On top of the sweepstakes, ScholarshipPoints provides helpful insights for students who are looking for ways to find and win scholarships. With ScholarTips, you can find help in your scholarship search and learn how to make yourself stand out. With articles that range from "How to Write a Winning Scholarship Essay" to "Weird, Unusual, and Unique College Scholarships," ScholarTips enables you to get the scoop on applying for scholarships and putting your best foot forward.
It’s a win-win.

ScholarshipPoints allows members to earn points by completing activities from our partners, such as solving puzzles, playing games, completing surveys, and even signing up for other scholarship giveaways.
