Scholarship opportunities - 32 billions worth - get yours

Education RSS Feed

There are so many scholarship opportunities out there, it is just like taking candy from a baby. There is an estimated $32 billion in scholarship monies available for the taking and all you have to do is apply for them. So, if you want to seriously reduce the amount of money you have to pay for college then follow these suggestions to find the scholarships you qualify for.

1. Contact the financial aid counselor at the school of your choice and ask if they have any information on scholarship you can apply for. You will have to do this well in advance of the semester you wish to start because the selection committee needs time to make their decision. You may learn about other scholarships that are available along the way but for the first ones you find make sure they are specific to people who can demonstrate financial need.
These are probably your best bet until you can get into school and acquire an academic standing and attendance record.

2. Call your old high school. I know this sounds a little weird but the high school you went to has listings of all the scholarships available, especially those that have to do with general education in particular. High school students usually start college with very little idea of what they want to be when they grow up so general ed scholarships are very popular.

3. Probably the most popular and easiest way to search for scholarship opportunities is to search for them on the internet. Just type scholarships into the search bar and voila! Thousands of scholarships pop up. Now all you need to do is wade through them to find ones you qualify for. There are so many categories. Hopefully the scholarship directory you found specifies different categories so your search won't take until you are eighty-five to complete. You may find scholarships available for your specific course of study or if your mother or father were in the military, if you are a woman entering a field that is traditionally a man's field, or if you are a man studying for a nursing degree. Doesn't matter, there is a lot of money out there to get a great education.

4. The United States government also offers scholarships to people who want to get good government positions. These scholarships are intended to increase the strength and skill of the American workforce. A strong workforce is necessary to stimulate the economy and get people spending money again. Some people have no money to spend these days because some of them have lost their jobs and may even have lost their homes. School and re-entry into the workforce may be their only option at this point.

5. It is highly unlikely, but should you not find any scholarship opportunities that fit your specific criteria, then apply for grants and loans to supplement you college financial burden.
The loans will have to be paid back, of course but at least you will be able to get a good education in the long run.
