Grab Your Camera and Earn Some College Cash!

Do you dream of becoming a National Geographic photographer? Maybe you envision yourself running along the sidelines of an NFL game or sitting courtside during the NBA finals? If so, I have some good news for you. Your constant need to take photographs could earn you some college cash. Heck, even if your current portfolio only includes some random selfies and shots of your most recent meals, you could still earn money to help cover your college expenses. There are hundreds of photo contests and various photography scholarships that could earn you free money in a snap, literally!

Yes, graduate scholarships are not as readily available as scholarships for incoming college freshmen and undergraduate students, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Graduate students just have to do a little more research and think outside the box when it comes to finding free money for college. Continue Reading…
