#CampusChat – Using Scholarships360 to Find and Win College Scholarships
Are you or your student looking to win college scholarships?
Are you overwhelmed at the amount of scholarship listing websites out there and are unsure of which sites to trust?
Join me for the #CampusChat Twitter chat on Thursday, November 10th from 9-10pm EST (Note new time and day!) as I welcome Will Geiger, a vital member of the Scholarships360 team.
What sets Scholarships360 apart from other scholarship sites?
“Rather than bury our viewers in a database of billions of scholarships with no place to start, the team behind Scholarships360 has been carefully selecting quality scholarship opportunities since December 2010. By profiling a select number of reputable scholarships, our readers can focus on what applies to and appeals to them, significantly increasing their chances of winning these scholarships! We know that students have enough to worry about, so Scholarships360 will search for the best opportunities for you!”
