SPENDonLIFE.com is sponsoring a $2,000 blogging scholarship for student bloggers. The importance of credit and protecting yourself from identity theft is something that should be important to all students, but is often forgotten in the midst of studying, partying and working.
To enter the blogging scholarship, you simply have to have a blog (an ongoing one or you can create one) and write a post about credit or identity theft. The requirements are very simple and straightforward. As long as you stick to the topic, you can write anything you want. How it has personally affected you, how to protect yourself, or even how you find it scary that nearly every company you do business with has a database full of information on you. You have to be 18 years old and a full or part-time student at an accredited university. The deadline is December 1st and the winner gets paid on January 1, 2009.
For more information about this $2,000 blogging scholarship sponsored by SPENDonLIFE.com, you can visit their website. SPENDonLIFE is a member of the National Scholarship Providers Association so you know this is a legitimate scholarship. SPENDonLIFE also offers ten scholarships per year for students who have been denied loans because of bad credit.
