Scholarships for Hispanic Students

Did you know…that Hispanic students are now the largest minority group on college campuses? From 2009 to 2010, the number of Hispanic students enrolled in college increased by 24% , with over 12.2 million Hispanic students now attending college in the United States.

The average family income for Hispanic families fell 66% between 2005 and 2009. It’s more important than ever for Hispanic students to explore their financial aid options for paying for college. To get Hispanic students started in the financial aid search process, we’ve put together a small list of Hispanic scholarships with application deadlines approaching in the next few months.

Music to My Ears: Scholarships for Music Majors

Scholarships for Music Majors ‘Music is love in search of a word.’ – Sidonie Gabrielle

Nothing could be more thrilling than to wake up each day doing what you love. For musicians, it’s more than a career: it’s like breathing oxygen, and the need to create flows through our veins and gives us life.

Birthday Cash: Get Rewarded for Being Born!

Birthday Cash Have you ever gone online to see what cool things happened when you were born, or what celebrities share their birthdays with you? I share mine with actors Seth Green, Nick Nolte and Jack Lemmon, as well as author John Grisham; pretty cool, I think. I have even used my birthday and year to pick lottery numbers, hoping against all odds that I will hit it big. Unfortunately, I’m still waiting.

But, if you are like me and need money for college, take my advice and avoid spending money on the lottery ticket method. Instead, take a chance on yourself and check out the ‘I Was Born In’ Scholarships, sponsored by offers some pretty unique scholarship programs that are only open to those born in specific years. This year, there are awards for those born between 1994 and 1996. The scholarship prize amount matches your birth year, too (1994 = $1,994)! The programs are very simple. You just need to be a legal resident of the United States or the District of Columbia, plan to enroll in college no later than 2014 (or 2015 or 2016, depending on the program) and be born in 1994 (or 1995 or 1996).

For Those Who Serve: Military Scholarships

Military Scholarships As we head into the holiday season, I often think of those who serve our country. While we are enjoying our feasts among family and friends, many military personnel are overseas risking their lives for our freedom. Some are working in the Middle East under hostile conditions, while others may be stationed at sea. No matter where they are, one thing remains the same: they put their lives on the line for us every day. The sacrifices they make are many. They face long absences from their families, losing the comforts of home and, for some, the ultimate sacrifice – losing their lives. We salute those who have served in the military by highlighting some of the military scholarships that are available for service members and their families. Continue Reading…
