Want a Scholarship? Just Shout It Out!

Have you ever just wanted to scream out something at the top of your lungs? Maybe you came across a derogatory comment on social media or saw a tweet that made absolutely no sense? Or, perhaps it was a discussion in one of your classes that brought you to the point of eruption? Sometimes, you just want to grab someone and see if you can shake the stupid out of them. Whatever the catalyst, we’ve all been there. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels, it’s easier than ever to express your opinion, share your knowledge, or just vent about what’s driving you insane. In fact, a single tweet can go around the world in mere seconds. That’s a pretty powerful platform when you think about it, and yet we generally use it to tell the world what we’re eating or crack jokes about the latest ‘ice bucket’ fails on YouTube. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we actually started to use these social outlets to spread good ideas or empower people. The possibilities would be endless.

10 Scholarships for Non-Traditional Students

There are many reasons why students may choose not to enroll in college directly after high school. Maybe they did not have the financial means to cover the cost of a college education, or perhaps they just needed an academic break. Some may have had family obligations that prevented them from focusing on a college degree or medical issues that made it impossible to attend classes. Whatever the reasons, those who chose to delay college, or return after an extended break, often find it difficult to get back on track. They may feel left behind and assume that there is insufficient financial aid available to assist them in obtaining their college diplomas, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

9/11 Scholarships

9/11 Scholarships – We Will Never Forget

It’s hard to believe that this year’s crop of college freshmen were only in kindergarten when America was shaken to its core on September 11, 2001. In fact, they are probably the last group of students who may have some memory of the events that unfolded that day. Future college students will only know of 9/11 through pictures, books, and movies. They won’t know how it felt to watch the Twin Towers fall to the ground like sand sculptures and wonder if someone they loved was still trapped inside. They won’t remember the screaming and crying that echoed in our ears for months. And most of all, they won’t know the feeling of pride and unity we all experienced as we came together to declare, “We are Americans, and we will never forget.”

How Do Scholarships Work?

You just received your college tuition bill and realize that you still need about $3,000 to cover all your expenses. Worst of all, the money is due in three weeks. Unfortunately, your parents are tapped out and your bank account is completely empty. In a panic, you turn to the Internet and starting applying for every scholarship you can find. As the days tick by, you patiently wait for a check that never comes. Does this sound familiar?

Here at ScholarshipExperts.com, we often get flooded with calls and emails in late July and early August from students desperately seeking financial assistance. These students may have miscalculated their total cost of attendance, or perhaps they overestimated the total amount of financial aid they might receive from their schools. Whatever the reason, they all have two things in common. One, they neglected to have a back-up plan in place, just in case their financial aid packages fell through. And two, they started the scholarship search process about six months too late.

Unigo Group Awards over $100,000 in Scholarships

Are you familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? Of course you are. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve no doubt seen the thousands of videos (and failures) making the rounds on YouTube, Facebook, and other social media channels. The success of this campaign (to date it has raised over $107 million) has spawned yet another charity plea across Twitter — #PayMyTuitionChallenge. Students are asking celebrities, millionaires, and large corporations to step up and help them make their college dreams a reality. One company, though, has already accepted that challenge, but well before a single tweet ever hit the stream.
