Funny Scholarships That Are No Joke

Tomorrow is April Fools’ Day, which kicks off National Humor Month. We have no idea why April is so comical, but hey…who are we to complain? We all could use a little more laughter in our lives. One thing that is no laughing matter, however, is the cost of a college degree. It can get downright expensive to pay for tuition, books, housing, and all those college fees.

Computer Science Scholarships

Computer Science Scholarships — Just a Keystroke Away!

It’s been nearly 40 years since a Harvard University dropout named Bill Gates founded Microsoft with the help of his partner, Paul Allen. Their vision — a computer in every home — was soon realized thanks to a revolutionary operating system they invented called MS-DOS (Microsoft Disk Operating System), and more importantly, Windows.

In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics expects computer science careers to grow about 15 percent over the next five years, which is faster than many other occupations.

Scholarships are not a waste of time

5 Reasons Scholarships Are Not a Waste of Time

The other day, we came across a blog post where the author actually encouraged students not to apply for scholarships. Why? She claimed scholarships are a waste of time based on the low percentage of students who actually receive scholarships for college. One thing she neglected to consider was that maybe more students would actually receive scholarships if they would just take the time to apply. Far too many students overlook private scholarships, believing they are either unqualified, the competition is too high, or it takes too much work to win one. It’s a shame that so many students are missing out on the scholarship application experience. Even if they don’t win the scholarships, there are certainly skills and lessons to be learned along the way. Don’t believe me? Here are five reasons why we think scholarships are not a waste of time.
