Research says those who have a plan for college are better prepared to pay for college. With this in mind, Sallie Mae recently announced its’ $1,000 Plan for College monthly sweepstakes as a motivator to families to start thinking about planning for college and to take advantage of the free resources available to help them do just that. To become eligible, a student or parents simply needs to register for one of Sallie Mae’s free, online plan for college tools.
Sweepstakes winners can use the additional funds towards tuition and fees at their current or future college or university. More importantly, students learn about the reality of higher education costs by using tools like a college planning calculator and a comprehensive scholarship search that provides access to more than 3 million scholarships worth more than $18 billion.
