If you’re a working adult who has been out of college for a while, or looking for funds to go back and finish a degree, it can be frustrating to dig through dozens or hundreds of scholarship programs that really only want high school seniors and high school college graduates. Everyone I know who has been in that position tells me the same thing: “I wish there was a scholarship search website or program that was just for us.”

Well, now there is!

There’s no catch and no lengthy application process, so you can sign up and get your chance to win up to $10,000 for college expenses. Ok, there is a tiny bit of a catch: You have to be 18 years or older and you have to be a U.S. resident.

Once you click through, just follow the registration instructions. Don’t worry: it is completely free and there is no obligation or purchase required. You’re allowed to register every week the competition period runs, so be sure to check back often in order to increase your odds of selection! Oh yeah, you do have to submit a valid email and mailing address, or else how are they going to get in touch and send the scholarship funds to you?

Now, that $10,000 might not be enough to get an entire degree at some schools these days, but spent wisely it could go a really long way! And honestly, these days, we could all use a little bit of help no matter how much it is.

Then again, more is also better. So if you’re still looking for even more scholarships, make sure you’ve got an up to date Fastweb account to get a big look at lots of various programs that apply specifically to your individualized situation and status.

Remember, your odds of receiving free money for college are only increased by apply for more awards, so if you’re really serious about winning some free cash you’re going to need to get busy with the search process and completing the applications.

Good luck!
