"Thank you ScholarshipPoints first and foremost! My initial reaction when seeing my name on the winners page had me at a loss for words. I never thought that when going up against people from all across the country I would actually have a chance to win a scholarship. In this upcoming fall I will be a student at Valdosta State and this money will help assist me towards paying my tuition. I'm going to school to become a clinical psychologist and even though its just the beginning for me I know how imperative it is to earn all the scholarships I can. Once again I want to thank scholarships points for giving me this money, and I encourage those who feels as if they will never have a chance to win not to give up. That one survey and that one little point you put in a drawing can give you a chance to win money."

"I cannot thank ScholarshipPoints enough for giving me such a wonderful gift. It is very beneficial because I didn't receive any other scholarships besides this one. When I realized how much money I needed to pay per month, it was a slap in the face because not all of us are able to afford four- year schools. Although there is a payment plan, most people do not make that much money in an entire month. Fortunately, thanks to ScholarshipPoints, that's $1,000 less that I have to worry about that I would have to pay in the future. This site makes it really easy to receive money without having to type a long essay each month. I would definitely recommend ScholarshipPoints to absolutely anyone and everyone. Thanks again, ScholarshipPoints!"

"I am so grateful to ScholarshipPoints and ZoomPanel for this amazing award! I am a refugee from Russia. I came to the US several years ago and am still struggling to settle in my new home. Before coming here I had finished four and a half out of six years of medical school in Moscow, but now I have to start everything from the beginning, including college education. I am also unable to work because I spend all my time studying primarily due to the language barrier. The only way I am able to take classes in college is by taking huge loans. This scholarship is very important for me because it literally helps me survive a very hard period in my life. With the help of these money I will be able to pay off a part of my loans, as well as to eventually reach my dream of becoming a qualified and devoted to my patients doctor. ScholarshipPoints is by far the best way of applying for scholarships and it is definitely the most realistic way of actually winning them. With no doubt I would recommend ScholarshipPoints to everyone to whom the process of applying for scholarships is familiar from a personal experience. Thank you very much again!"

"Towards the end of my senior year, I wasn't positive if I'd be able to go to UCSC because my parents are in financial trouble; my father has been unemployed for almost two years and my step-mom had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. Financial aid in the form of various scholarships and grants are the reason I am capable of attending UCSC. I live off-campus and UCSC is on the quarter system, so there is about a month's gap between the end of fall quarter and beginning of winter. Since financial aid only covers the time I am in school, it'll be difficult for me to scrounge up money for January's rent, utilities bill, gas and other essential things."

"I honestly wasn't sure how I was going to survive the semester with out-of-state tuition so high. I had dropped three of my planned credit hours to cut costs, but was still struggling with over five thousand dollars of unpaid tuition after scholarships. I was valedictorian of my class in high school, but still couldn't find adequate scholarships to attend the Missouri University of Science and Technology. This money will help me so much! Thank you ScholarshipPoints.com!"

"Hey everyone, I'm Kim and I had the choice between a fully paid tuition at one college or paying over 15 thousand dollars on top of my scholarship at Lawrence Tech. Through really hard work and applying for as many scholarships as I could get my hands on, I would say it has paid off (literally!). I've always been a dedicated student and being involved in school was a blast. I'm majoring in Civil Engineering and signed up for 17 credit hours. I want to Thank ScholarshipPoints.com so much for this, it was the best thing to come home to after a long day of work! My guest speaker, John W. Quinn once said "With a little luck and lots of hard work and determination to succeed despite overwhelming odds, sometimes we can indeed achieve what seems impossible."
