Don't Wait To Graduate

Whitney Brusseau's insight:

On Wednesday March 14th, Kevin Corbett was a guest speaker in my senior seminar class. He came to give us another perspective on the pros and cons of a college education. He informed us the difficulty of paying off loans after college, and the number of people senior citizens still paying off their college loans. His presentation was informative and interesting, but it also did not change my decision to go to college.

Scholarships are powerful financial tools that students can utilize if they wish to graduate without owing a great deal of money.

Via SchoolandUniversity
Whitney Brusseau's insight:

On this website I learned the difference between many types of scholarships. For example, merit-based scholarships are traditionally based on grades or athletics, need-based scholarships are given based on the students FAFSA evaluation, and student-specific scholarships come from student factors like race, gender, religion, or family circumstance. These are just a few of the many types of scholarships available to students around the world.

I scooped it because it opened my eyes to the multitude of scholarships out there and reassures me that there are many options when it comes to paying for college.

I really liked using this site while looking to win money to finance my college education. I never really understood that there were so many various types of scholarships and opportunities to earn money for college. This really helped in figuring out how to apply to each one and understand what each type of scholarship is looking for and how to make myself stand out,

I applied for the Comcast Leaders and Achievers Scholarship. This is a scholarship I applied for through my school counselor, and I learned that first I had to fill out a simple form stating my basic information, community service hours, and school activities, then I would be notified if I was selected to participate in an essay contest to compete for the scholarship. I was not selected to participate in the essay contest, but the form that I filled out took me about a half an hour.

The Corban Promise | Corban Undergrad | Scholarships and Research | Scoop.it
Whitney Brusseau's insight:

I went to Corban's website and learned more about a new program they are starting up in the fall to assist students in paying off their loans. The student must get a job within a year of graduating the university and be working at least 30 hours a week at that job, but otherwise the program is very simple. This program is almost like an insurance policy, because they promise that they will pay off a percentage of your loans for you until you reach a certain income.
