Get to Know the Women in Aviation Scholarship Program

Women in Aviation, International (WAI) began in 1990 to encourage women to seek careers in aviation. According to the organization’s website, roughly six percent of all active pilots in the U.S. are women, and less than five percent of all non-pilot aviation jobs are held by women.

10 Fall Scholarships for High School Freshmen

You’ve probably heard the saying, “the early bird gets the worm,” but did you know that it’s also true for scholarships? You don’t have to wait until your senior year of high school to start searching for free money for college. In fact, if you wait too long, you may actually restrict your college choices. How? Think about it. If you don’t start searching for scholarships until you receive your college acceptance letters, you’re not going to have enough time to gather any additional funding that you may need. That’s why it’s so important to start applying as early as possible. The more time you have to complete scholarships, the more time you’ll have to win them, too! You also have a lot less on your plate your freshman year than you do your final year of high school. If you want to give yourself more options when it comes to picking a college, do yourself a favor and start applying for scholarships right now. In fact, you can start with these 10 fall scholarships that are perfect for high school freshmen.

November scholarships

Be Thankful for These November Scholarships

Can you believe Thanksgiving will be here in just a few short weeks? It’s a time not only to enjoy the company of your family and friends (and tons of great food!), but also to reflect upon what you may be grateful for this past year. For new college students, it may be something as simple as surviving your first mid-terms. High school seniors, on the other hand, may simply be thankful for the short break from college applications (breathe, it’s almost over!). We, of course, are thankful for each and every student, parent, and educator who trusts us to help him or her find free money for college. In keeping with the giving spirit of the holiday, we’ve assembled a bountiful list of November scholarships.

Do you remember your high school or college chemistry class? You probably had your share of fun trying weird experiments or mixing chemicals, but there may have been one thing you really hated to learn…the periodic table of elements. memorizing elementsSure, a few elements were pretty easy to memorize with some creative tactics (AU, I want some gold!), but a lot of it made absolutely no sense.
