We know the scholarship search is priority #1 for the majority of college-bound students. Whether you’ve been churning through scholarship applications all season, are running behind on your search, or don’t know where to begin, the Cappex + College Greenlight Scholarship Marathon is the resource you need. Last year’s inaugural Scholarship Marathon hosted by College Greenlight was wildly succesful and this time around Cappex is joining in as a co-host for the 2014 event on Saturday, March 22nd from 9:00am to 9:00pm. 

What is The Scholarship Marathon? 

The Scholarship Marathon is a free online event that runs all day at Cappex.com. Anytime from  9am to 9pm CST, students can join us online to apply to scholarships, view presentations from scholaship experts, and win prizes. Last year, a number of College Greenlight Scholarship Marathon participants were rewarded for applying to an incredible amount of scholarships. The students efforts impressed both the Greenlight and Cappex team. 

How is The Scholarship Marathon different from applying for scholarships on your own?

During the Scholarship Marathon, students have access to one-on-one help from the Cappex team as well as free webinars from scholarship experts. The team will be on hand all day to answer scholarship application questions. The insider scholarship tips and advice will help you finalize your scholarship applications to put you on track to win money for college.

If you still aren’t convinced to register now, did we mention the bonuses? Hourly raffles and giveaways. Cappex will also award a $1,000 scholarship to the student who best represents the spirit behind the Scholarship Marathon.
