Money Matters: Scholarships for Specific Career Paths

Nursing Scholarships It’s never easy trying to decide what major to choose when getting ready to go to college. Our decisions are often influenced by our families, society and, more often than not, money. Considering the educational investment we must make for career preparation before we even earn our first paycheck, it may help to know what financial assistance may be available within your given career choice. Knowing what scholarship resources are available can also help you decide on what level of degree you will ultimately pursue (undergraduate, graduate or higher). Here are a few examples of career paths that have scholarship opportunities for students at different levels of education… Continue Reading…


Show Me the Money: Scholarships for Adult Students

Scholarships for Adult Students If you look around college campuses these days, you may be surprised to see an increasing number of adult students (30+) attending classes. The tough economy has made the job market very competitive and many are hoping to gain an advantage by adding a new degree or learning new skills. As this older generation heads back to college, some are finding it difficult to cover tuition costs without relying on the help of student loans, grants and scholarships. While there are a plethora of awards targeted to the traditional college student (18-24), the older non-traditional students may find locating scholarships a bit more complex. Continue Reading…


Celebrate Good Nutrition Month with Healthy Scholarships

November is Good Nutrition Month It may surprise you to learn that November, a month in which we celebrate by over-eating (Thanksgiving), is also Good Nutrition Month. Did you know that no state in the United States has an obesity rate lower than 21%, and approximately one-third (33.8%) of all U.S. adults are obese? The rates for childhood obesity have tripled over the last 30 years; there are now over 12.5 million children and adolescents who are over-weight. People who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems such as stigmatization and poor self-esteem, as well as a host of other health risk factors. It’s definitely time to take a closer look at what we eat and start making healthier choices. To help get you excited about making the change to a healthy lifestyle, I’ve listed some financial incentives (scholarships) that may provide you with free money for college. All you have to do is choose to make a difference in yourself or in your community. Continue Reading…


Believe in Yourself to Get Scholarships!

Believe In Yourself to Get Scholarships Recently, I’ve heard students talking about how scholarships are “only for valedictorians” or a “waste of time.” Let me set the story straight: scholarships are definitely not a waste of time and they are for EVERYONE! I can say this with full confidence — I have been there.

In 2004, I made the decision to go to college in pursuit of an English degree. I had been out of high school for a while, already had children plus a part-time job. My husband had a decent (but not great) job, so we made too much money for me to qualify for a Pell grant but not enough for me to cover the cost of my college tuition and fees. This left me with two options; I could find ways to cover my expenses or resign myself to having a lot of student loan debt at graduation. Continue Reading…


Getting Lost in a Book May Help You Win a Scholarship

Steacie LibraryThe introduction of the Internet has changed many things in our lives, such as how and where we access information. Not too long ago, students wandered through aisles of books in a building called a library and used a manual card catalog system to locate items on the shelves. They sat in beanbag chairs hunched over their favorite novels or snuggled into comfy couches to read. Now, everything is digital and a great majority of us get our information from the world-wide web. Visits to the library have become rare, especially after the invention of the Kindle and the Nook. We can now access our favorite stories anywhere at any time.

Although how we access books has changed, many of us still pursue our love of reading. Did you know that getting lost in a book might actually help you win a scholarship? It’s true. There are scholarship programs out there for avid readers, as well as those who love to write novels and stories too. Continue Reading…
