Scholarships: I'm half way done with my second to last semester of grad school ever. Scholarships?

I've applied for MANY scholarships hopefully to pay for all my expenses for FALL 2013. But my tuition bill will be about $6k this semester, which I applied scholarships worth about $44k (total). Say I win ALL the scholarships I applied for. Can I use the money to pay off my other student loans? I have about 50k total in student loans now

There is no such a thing as grad school scholarships.

You can enter scholarship drawings for up to $10,000 here: https://bitly.com/LT4Ye4
You just earn points by doing nice, easy activities and enter them in! Each point is a chance to win.
ScholarshipPoints has some great blogs, like monthly scholarship updates, and advice to college students or high school seniors. It's one of the easiest scholarships to enter.

This is another great scholarship site with lots of essay scholarships:

Here are some great scholarship search sites:
http://www.scholarships.com
http://www.fastweb.com
http://www.zinch.com
http://www.cappex.com
http://www.collegeprowler.com
http://www.studentscholarshipsearch.com
You can modify the search criteria to search almost any scholarships.

Here's a compilation of many other scholarship search sites if you've looked through all of the ones above: http://www.college-scholarships.com/free_scholarship_searches.htm

There's also weird scholarships like the duck calling contest, Duck Tape Prom Dress scholarship, etc.
Here's a list of them:

You have many choices. Good luck! I hope you get a great scholarship.

If you get x amount of scholarships, once it is applied to your account and your tuition bill is fully paid, any remaining funds should be disbursed to you. Once it's disbursed to you via check or direct deposit, it's technically available for you to use for whatever. So if you want to use it to pay off some of your loans, you could. Now I don't know if you're "SUPPOSED" to do this, but you can do it.
