College Prowler's $1,000 Student Survey Scholarship
College Prowler is the largest source of student written college reviews on the web. To gather these reviews from students, we offer this scholarship as an incentive. It's also important to get the opinions of students every year to adequately capture changes on campus. As an administrator, you know the importance of accurate information about your school on sites like ours. Having enough completed surveys also allows us to rank and grade your school. Our studies have shown traffic to a school's page more than doubles 6 months before compared to 6 months after they are ranked. With over 800,000 unique visitors every month, it's pretty compelling evidence. We have some great content on Huntingdon already (http://collegeprowler.com/huntingdon-college), but I hope you can help us get some more!
