Finding the Best College Scholarships

 

The first, and probably the most well-known way to pay for college, is to obtain a scholarship. Most students think that scholarships are only for those individuals who obtained a 4.0 in high school or scored a 1 billion on their SAT. While academic scores can get you scholarships so many other scholarships are available to students.


Did you know that a large percentage of scholarships go unclaimed each and every year? Have you ever taken a look at a national scholarship book? 1000’s upon 1000’s of pages of scholarships available to those who simple ask and fill out an application. Most of the criteria is simple. You must attend a school, you need to stay out of academic probation and most want you to declare a degree. An example would be Mr. Brown who owns a jewelry store wants to give back to his community so he goes to his closest college and tells them he wants to give 2 students a $500 scholarship for the upcoming school year. The only thing he asks is the student needs to keep a 2.5GPA and have a major in jewelry design. This is just one example of 1000’s ranging from business school, medical, dental, accounting, mechanics, you name it.
