As you all know, college is very important and very expensive. And every year, it gets more and more expensive. It can be hard to pay for one child to go to college, and if you have more than one child, it can be nearly impossible. And sometimes it IS impossible. There can be other ways to deal with the cost. One of those ways is by getting scholarships. And I will let you know of ways that you can get a scholarship. This is a sponsored post.
Talking to your high school advisor/counselor
Your high school guidance counselor is a great source of information about college. After all, that is a big part of their job. They can tell you what scholarships might be available to you and how to apply for them. Like a scholarship from the Groza Learning Center and Nationwide Debt Direct.
Use scholarship search services
There are plenty of scholarship search engines to help you search for all of the many scholarships that are out there and available to you. Like these scholarships from Aaron Minc and Jason Kulpa. There are so many, you can search by niche and by the amount of the scholarship and things like that.
Apply for as many scholarships as you can
There are so many companies and individuals that have scholarships available for you. While it is a good idea to go for larger ones, it can also be a good idea to apply for many smaller ones, too. They will all add up after awhile. Like these scholarships from Rocco Brasile and John Jesensky.
Get involved in your community
Colleges and scholarship committees love to see how vital you are to your own community. So being active and helpful in your community is a really great idea. These will be really great additions to your scholarship essays or answers. Here are a few other scholarships you can apply for: Rusty Tweed, Summit Shah, and Karl Jobst.
So now that I have shared many scholarships and ways to find scholarships with you, I hope you find it much easier now. I also hope that you do not have as much school debt as I do because these search engines were not available when I was in college! I am just so thankful that all of this new information is available for my daughter!
Do you have a kid in college, heading to college, or are you yourself in college? Share with me in the comments!!!
