Finding and Applying for Scholarships | Federal Student Aid

Finding and Applying for Scholarships | Federal Student Aid | November 29th | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

This site helps many students in not only gaining scholarships, but in the whole entire process of earning money to pay for schooling. On this site descriptions of what scholarships are help students new to the idea of trying to earn free money. Information on how to get scholarships helps those who can't seem to find the right scholarship for them, while other information on money allows students to learn that once they receive their scholarship, they need to go through a process of getting the money from the scholarship to pay for college. The Federal Student Aid tool allows students easy access to find scholarships worth signing up for. The best part, all the money you receive from scholarships does not have to be paid back!

Planning and Preparing for College (Scholarships, Internships, Etc ... | November 29th | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

In order to help pay for college, students could lessen the burden by applying for scholarships. Over the summer internships also give students great experience in the field they are interested in while adding to their resume to help them in gaining future jobs. Colleges especially will look for students who participate or have participated in internships over the summer or during school. This shows colleges that you are always ready to learn and want to get a head start on your college education and the major you choose.

Paying for College: Obscure Scholarships Can Add Up - WDTV

Paying for College: Obscure Scholarships Can Add Up - WDTV | November 29th | Scoop.it

My thoughts:

No matter where the scholarship comes from, someone is helping you pay for college. Every scholarship is an opportunity to collect enough money for college. Slow and steady wins the race, therefore sometimes a ton of small scholarships are easier to obtain and my take you farther than one bigger scholarship. In the long run, all the 'free' money you can obtain will help in every part of your education. Scholarships can be found everywhere as well. Every high school usually has their own scholarship for their students or business in the area may have scholarships available to students in need. Even big businesses may have opportunities for scholarships such as the Coca-Cola Company or the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. All you need to do is look up scholarships and you will find some worth the time for the money.
