4 New Year’s Scholarship Resolutions

There’s something about celebrating the New Year that is liberating. Not only is it the perfect time to say goodbye to anything bad that may have happened in the last 12 months, but it’s also a great opportunity for you to identify some things you may want to improve upon moving forward. It’s a chance to take personal inventory and really focus on making things better for you and those around you. Sure, you could put together a list of tired, old resolutions like getting more exercise or eating healthier, but that’s not going to help you pay for college, is it? No. Instead, we encourage you to take a look at these scholarship resolutions (many of which can help you in other areas of your life, too) that could potentially improve your financial forecast for 2015.

holiday cash

Quick Ways to Earn Christmas Cash

It’s that time of the year when college students look forward to heading home and relaxing for a few weeks. Months of eating at the campus dining hall will be replaced with home-cooked meals, and long nights of studying will be swapped for Netflix marathons. But, it won’t be long before the spring semester arrives along with those college tuition bills. Thankfully, this is a perfect time for students to earn a little extra cash to help buy holiday gifts or save up for those impending college expenses. Sure, students could get a job at a local restaurant or even a retail store, but holiday shoppers aren’t always in the best of moods. For those looking to earn some cash over winter break, and still find time to have some fun, we suggest heading over to Unigo.com.

Creative Ways to Fund a Study Abroad Experience

Can you image completing your homework assignments under the shade of the Eiffel Tower or in a remote village in a South American country? If so, a study abroad experience may be in your future. College is one of the few moments in your life where you can take some risks and try new things, such as studying in a foreign land. With so many programs to choose from, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination and your wallet. Although most colleges and universities offer a wide variety of study abroad experiences, very few programs are covered completely by your financial aid. In most cases, you’ll need additional funding to help cover all the expenses you’ll incur during your time away. Not only will you need to pay for tuition during the semester (or longer), but you’ll also need funding to cover travel expenses, insurance, and living expenses — just to name a few. Unless you have a wealthy relative or some cash stashed away, you’ll need to plan ahead if you want to travel abroad. In fact, it’s best to start saving for a study abroad experience at least 12 to 18 months in advance, if not longer. Not sure where to start? Consider these creative ways to fund your study abroad experience.
