Quincy, MA (PRWEB) October 14, 2008 — What can you do in 60 seconds? Send a text message. Leisurely walk half a football field. Reheat a frozen pretzel or pizza, perhaps. The Student Loan Network has added "Apply for a $10,000 scholarship" to the list of things you can do in 60 seconds. The Boston-based financial aid company is holding a drawing for a $10,000 scholarship on Halloween night, open to graduating high school students and current college students.
"We call it the Trick or Treat scholarship because so many scholarships and forms of financial aid require you to jump through all kinds of hoops just to even be considered. Our scholarship has no tricks at all, just a really short online application that takes 60 seconds," said Student Loan Network president and CEO Joe Cronin, "with the treat being a $10,000 scholarship to help pay for college, especially in this economy."
Students, parents, and families are encouraged to take a minute and enter the $10,000 scholarship drawing by visiting: http://www.studentloannetwork.com/10K/
No academic requirements or essays are required to apply for the scholarship, just a completed application online.
