College Scholarships for Video Game Players?

College Scholarships for Video Game Players? | Scholarships |
A private university elects to make a popular video game into an official varsity sport. Marketing ploy or sign of the future?

Joshua Y.'s insight:

I always thought scholarships were mostly just merit based. If not merit, mostly educationally based. However, reading this made me realize that pretty much anybody can get a scholarship. There will always be a scholarship out there best suited for you and your interests. Although most of us have one common interest; money.

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

Joshua Y.'s insight:

Before reading this article I did not know there were different types of scholarships. I thought that a scholarship was just a scholarship. However, this article taught me there are: merit-based, need-based, student-specific, career-specific, and college-specific scholarships.

This article explains the different kind of scholarships that are provided by schools, businesses, institutions, and charitable organizations.  This article will help my specify the kind of scholarships i qualify for and what scholarships i should apply for.  I can use this article as a guideline as a i find scholarships and organize them into categories before starting the application.  I like to be very organized and having this article will help me keep my scholarships organized by what they offer and what kind of scholarship it is.

This article broke down the different type of scholarships that are out there and how to catagorize them. There are 5 types of scholarships that this article explains. 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,

According to TurboTax's latest Infographic on college aid, we're made aware that the Office of Federal Student Aid processes nearly 14 million financial aid

Joshua Y.'s insight:

I learned from this that FAFSA can be of great help in paying your college tuition. Most scholarships give $500-$1000, but the FAFSA government financial aid can give up to $20,000 a year. I'll be making sure that I fill this out and turn it in by January 1st.

Tenika Wentworth's curator insight, January 12, 2014 4:02 PM

Filing for FAFSA is the main way to pay for college. 81% of college students file for financial aid. In the statistics shown here, 29% ofthe payment for college is from scholarships and grants. The other big chunk (28%) is from parents income and savings. Either way, more than half of how students are getting through college is not going to have to be paid back. Luckily, Washington is one of the few states to now have a deadline for filling out FAFSA. But if I fill it out I would have to get it in ASAP because that will better my chance of getting more money.
