Wells Fargo to Award More Cash Prizes In College Sweepstake

High students who sign up for a college planning and financial management program offered by Wells Fargo could win $1,000 to pay for college or other expenses if they enroll by June 30.

The Wells Fargo’s CollegeSTEPS program offers helpful college planning and money management tips for parents and students, including how to find scholarships, apply for financial aid, make campus visits, save, budget and manage student loans. Eligible high school students between the ages of 14 and 20 who sign up for the program will be automatically entered in the sweepstakes, which has been expanded to award 520 cash prizes of $1,000 each; $520,000 nationally.

“There is no question that tuition costs continue to rise across the country and can be daunting to college students and their families. There’s also no question that a college degree can increase earnings potential and decrease the likelihood of unemployment,” said John Rasmussen, head of Wells Fargo Education Financial Services.

The deadline to enroll in the sweepstakes is June 30, and will be done automatically when you enroll in the CollegeSTEPS program by visiting http://www.wellsfargo.com/expandedcollegesteps.com. High school students already enrolled in the CollegeSTEPS who want to enter the expanded sweepstakes, should visit http://www.wellsfargo.com/expandedcollegesteps.com and re-enroll by June 30.
