$10K animation scholarship goes to Florida student
ScholarshipPoints.com, a free college scholarship rewards program, has helped one art student get closer to her dream of attaining a bachelor's degree in Media Arts and Animation.
An Edvisors online education company, ScholarshipPoints awarded its second $10,000 scholarship of 2012 to Heather Allen, a student at the Art Institute of Jacksonville. This scholarship comes at a time when many students are getting ready to pay their fall 2012 tuition bills. With a boost from the online scholarship program, that task just became a little bit easier for Allen and her family.
Allen, who just finished her first year of college, is studying media arts and animation.
"My dream is to create concept art and amazing animations for well-known companies in the industry," said Allen. "I've been worried about being able to finance my continuation at school, and thanks to ScholarshipPoints, I will be able to continue my education and finish my degree with this scholarship."
This particular $10,000 scholarship award reinforces ScholarshipPoints' commitment to helping students achieve their education dreams regardless of their age, GPA, major or professional aspirations. Since the beginning of 2012, ScholarshipPoints has awarded over $60,000 to almost 50 students from different schools around the United States. In addition to quarterly $10,000 scholarships, ScholarshipPoints awards a number of $500, $1,000 and $1,500 scholarships to student members on a monthly basis.
The next ScholarshipPoints $10,000 scholarship winner will be drawn on September 15. To enter the September $10,000 scholarship drawing or any of the monthly scholarship drawings, visit www.ScholarshipPoints.com/win/.
I will be a high school senior for the 2012-2013 school years. I am a first generation student and the oldest of four siblings. I hope to pursue a degree in Computer Engineering, or at least something to do with computers or technology. I am now avidly searching for scholarships and other aid that I will definitely need when I attend college. Thanks so much to ScholarshipPoints for the $500 Facebook Scholarship! I am forever grateful for this wonderful and fortunate blessing. Winning this scholarship has given me hope and has invigorated me to continue my search for more scholarships and aid. It is indeed possible to get money for college if you look around and do your best! ScholarshipPoints is a great place to go if you're looking for scholarships. -------------------- Ask For Education http://www.askforeducation.com/financial-aid
