HOLMDEL, N.J. (December 6, 2010) – Calling all co-eds. Recognizing the ongoing burden of college costs, ScholarGamers.com has expanded its audience and invited college students to participate in its scholarship competitions at the start of the new year. The innovative platform offers online game enthusiasts the chance to compete in various no fee online games to win educational scholarships.
Effective January 1, 2011, anyone enrolled or registered in a college, university, trade school or other institution of post secondary education at the start of the competition session can compete in the monthly ScholarGamers.com tournaments.
“The financial burden of college is long lasting. It begins well before the applications are filled out, continuing through the education process and long after a college degree is conferred,” said Angelo Tartaro, CEO and Founder, ScholarGamers.com.
“We are pleased to offer ScholarGamers.com as a supplement for matriculated students who are looking to finance their education.”
Launched in November, ScholarGamers.com offers a novel solution to escalating educational costs by giving students an opportunity to win scholarships via a free flash game competition.
ScholarGamers.com offers scholarships of up to $5,000, deposited into a 529 plan for each designated winner. While individuals of all ages can play games on the site, up until now only high school students ages 13-19 were eligible to compete for scholarship money. Competitors are only eligible to win once. ScholarGamers.com will award 144 scholarships in 2011.
ScholarGamers.com is an innovative platform offering middle-, high-school and college students a chance to compete for educational scholarships through no-fee online game competitions. Simple in concept and elaborate in reward, ScholarGamers.com doesn’t limit scholarships to those with the usual special skills. Developed as a response to escalating educational costs, ScholarGamers.com’s secure environment fosters a sense of pride, accomplishment and fun.
