American Liberty Scholarship

BACKGROUND
Paying for college can be really tough. Not everyone has a nest egg saved up or is eligible for student loans. Scholarships can be a great way to pay for a part of your college tuition. American Liberty Scholarship is one of many scholarships available to aspiring college students.

American Liberty Scholarship is a foundation set up to provide a yearly scholarship to a deserving student. The scholarship is a one time $5,000 award given out to anyone who is aspiring to get their bachelors, masters, PhD or technical certification. Anyone can apply for the award through the online website. The application process is 3 steps which includes personal information as well as information regarding GPA and previous achievements.

Each month the top 10 semifinalists of those that apply in that month are chosen to go on to the next round. The 10 semifinalists chosen will then be sent a second form to fill out and will be required to write an essay. The Scholarship Review Committee will then choose 2 finalists from that month to go on to compete for the scholarship. The semifinalists will receive a $50.00 prize and a certificate.  At the end of the year the 24 finalists will then compete to win the $5,000 scholarship.

The winner of the scholarship can only use the money to fund their education. The winner must also participate in any photos, video shoots or magazine articles at the discretion of the scholarship management.
  
PRO
- Easy to apply
- Monetary prize and certificate at semifinalist level
- Not a large number of applicants

CON
- The company will use your information to send advertising/marketing materials
- The company has access to personal information which they can use anyway they want
- Not much information on the company or scholarship

EXPENSE
- Free to apply
- Your personal information is at risk

CONCLUSION
American Liberty Scholarship is not a bad scholarship to apply for. Not many people probably know about this scholarship. The website lists only about 100 people apply each month so you have a decent chance of winning. However, the primarily goal of this website is to collect your personal information for marketing purposes. If you are okay with this practice go ahead and apply to the scholarship. Make sure you read the privacy policy and eligibility rules before you apply.

i also entered before checking out the reviews, however i did recieve an email that my GPA puts me in the top 10% of applicants for the month and that I'm in the running for finalist. I was sent forms to fill out and mail back to an address in FL. posted Mar 1st, 2011 10:51 am

I no longer think this scholarship is dangerous. I just think it is a fraud. The Better Business Bureau has no complaints about this company as far as identity theft or anything nasty like that. However, after applying for this scholarship I have NOT received any notification concerning the scholarship winners, although this information was supposed to be released 5 days ago. They have not updated their finalists page since 2009. Don't waste your time on this scholarship. posted Feb 3rd, 2011 8:34 pm

I've earned a 4.0 GPA throughout college and THREE TIMES I've received notice that I'm "in the top 10%" to win this particular scholarship. I've sent in the applications but never heard another word from them each time. I DO wonder if anybody actually does win the money. posted Jul 1st, 2010 9:05 am

I was an idiot and applied for this scholarship. I then quickly unsubscribed, but I'm terribly afraid because I put down the company I used to work for. They didn't ask for the company's contact info, but I'm so afraid they'll look it up and start calling/mailing/emailing them. This is my main concern because I don't work there any more. If anyone has applied for this and put down their employer, please leave a feedback and let me know if they contacted your employer or not. This is bothering me very much. Thanks! posted Jun 17th, 2009 1:24 am

i got the email about this scholarship but i am definately not sending them my information. If you search the society itself on the internet there is nothing about it which is sketchy. Also, they don't even have a phone number on their invitation letter. I really doubt they really send money to anyone at the end of their competition. posted Apr 8th, 2009 10:09 pm

Until someone gets an actual check from them, I would be very wary. They have not issued any scholarships yet.

I am actually am one of the finalists and the spam has not been too bad. The chance of a $5000 scholarship is worth it, in my opinion. This will help me pay on my federal loans...which, after almost 4 years amount to quite a bit. posted Jan 6th, 2009 6:17 am

I'd agree with you for a $500 "scholarship," but for this one, it seems well worth it. If you really need the money--many do these days--and you're confident in the value of your achievements, it seems well worth the few hours work involved. Although, it's disgusting how this is used as an advertising gimmick. posted Aug 5th, 2008 3:19 pm

It seems like a lot of work to get a scholarship. How much can five thousand dollars help me out? posted Jul 14th, 2008 12:51 pm
