“There’s one no essay scholarship on our site that’s a marketing scholarship, let’s put it that way. They pay us to drive traffic to their website. There are quite a few smaller businesses now that do this. The big companies like Coca Cola or Dell have these big not for profits that they set up and they offer tons of scholarships, millions of dollars. But then there’s these not as big companies that say, you know what, we offer scholarships, we don’t get as much traffic as, can we list our scholarships on your website and then we’ll pay you on a cost-per-click basis to drive traffic to our website. That’s the niche for the first no essay scholarship I’m going to tell you about, and it’s actually called “The No Essay Scholarship.” It does really well because it has “no essay” right in the name.”

A lot of other no essay scholarships are trying to get social media exposure or go viral in some way, so they’ll create contests where a student does something that’s very easy to do. Then the student shares it on Facebook or Twitter and mentions the sponsor of the no essay scholarship.

“Those again are typically more marketing style scholarships,” says Ladd, but there’s nothing wrong with it. They’re offering the money. It’s legit. Yeah, they’re benefiting from it, it’s a capitalistic endeavor for certain but I don’t have a problem with that. As long as they’re helping to support to offer free scholarships to students.

“The only reason I tell people to use to do a scholarships search to look for no essay scholarships is not to be self-promotional,” says Ladd. “It’s because it’s the only tool I know backward and forward. But there are a lot of free scholarships search sites and I’m not going to promote those but I’m not going to dissuade anyone from using them either. But you can use more than one. When I buy a car, I’m going to buy one car because I have to pay for it, but if they were free I’d just have tons of cars because I would just want to drive a different one every day. The point being, you may not have any money, but it doesn’t matter because you can easily go to five different scholarships search sites for information and they might all be useful. I think ours is the best but I might be a little biased.”
