Next school year, nearly 1,900 Washington students will get $5,000 scholarships to pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering, math and health care.
This article proves there are several scholarships out there that could benefit students in need of money that aren’t poor, but aren’t rich; middle class families. Middle class families earn enough money that their child’s education isn’t fully paid for by filling out the FAFSA, but they can’t afford sending them to college and pay all the expenses. The Washington Opportunity Scholarship is increasing to five times more scholarship money for Washington residents attending in-state universities. Also, this scholarship is renewable, so you don’t receive a flat $5,000; instead you receive an additional $5,000 each year of college up to five years. I feel this article is valuable to my project because this scholarship hones in on middle class families, so it would be perfect for me.
I feel this is valuable to my project because it informs you on where to look for scholarships and the process it takes to apply for scholarships. In the article it stated that it is good to talk with your counselor about local scholarships because those won’t be as competitive and you will have a better chance of actually receiving the scholarship. Also, the scholarships with the lower dollar amount like $500 or $1000 are less competitive and if you apply for several you will have a better chance of accumulating more money than going for the big scholarship which will have a lot more competition. It also stated that scholarship websites are helpful because they match scholarships with your personal interests, family, and academics. This article taught me to not waste my time applying for scholarships that charge you a fee because they are no better than the scholarships that are free. This article helped me determine the scholarships I should apply for and spend most of my time on. It also helped me on where to find scholarships and which ones are beneficial to me.

I feel this is valuable to my project because it informs you on the different type of scholarships. I learned about merit-based, need-based, student-specific, career-specific, and college-specific scholarships. All scholarships are not going to cover full tuition; there are smaller scholarships that cover other expenses towards college like books. The merit-based scholarships are mainly based on academic, artistic, or athletic achievements. These scholarships are directly paid to the institution a student attends, not the student themselves. Need-based scholarships are done by filling out an online free application based on your family’s income and financial record. Then the amount of money you receive is based on the expected family contribution against the cost of the college the student attends. There are also the specific scholarships which focus either on the student, career choice, or college. This article is valuable to my project because now I can focus on the scholarships that pertain to me and I know which scholarships are which.
