Why Skeptics Don’t Win Scholarships

Ever notice how some people have a knack for finding the negative in every situation? It could be the most beautiful day ever, but those Debbie Downers will complain about the sun shining too brightly or some other idiotic problem. These very same people will also be the first to point out that no matter how much time and effort they expend, nothing ever goes their way. They question everything, but rarely ever offer any solutions. Unfortunately, we meet a lot of these naysayers at college fairs, financial aid nights, and online. So, in the spirit of International Skeptics Day (yes, it really does exist), we thought today might be a good opportunity to explain why skeptics typically don’t win scholarships.

physician assistant scholarships

Scholarship Resources for Future Physician Assistants

Have you ever scheduled a visit with a physician assistant when you were sick or injured? If you’ve never used one before, you could be missing out. These nationally certified and state-licensed medical professionals can handle many of the same tasks your regular doctor would perform, including: diagnosing your illness, ordering tests, and prescribing medications. In many cases, it’s also easier to get an appointment with one, and it’s typically cheaper, too. For students, the choice to become a physician assistant means less time in school (approximately 26 months), but it can still be a costly degree path. Most programs require several years of training and experience, as well as clinical rotations (2,000 hours or more). Thankfully, there are several financial aid resources for those who are considering this career choice.

merit-based scholarships

5 Prestigious Merit-Based College Scholarships

In the world of scholarships, students can earn money for a variety of reasons. They may be skilled at sports or have a special talent, or even secure funding based on the color of their hair. There are even scholarships that are awarded to students based on the luck of the draw. But, out of all the scholarships students may be eligible to receive, none may be as rewarding as those based on academic achievement. To some, winning merit-based college scholarships is affirmation that all those long nights of studying and giving up their free time to hit the books was really worth it. It’s definitely something to brag about on college applications and résumés, not to mention the occasional family get together. For those who aren’t afraid of a little competition, there are several scholarships available this fall to those who have excelled in school. Students should be warned, the application process is not easy; but, if they come out on top, the rewards are great. Here are just a few programs that are currently seeking eligible candidates.

Confucius Says, “Try Your Luck With Scholarships!”

September 29 is Confucius Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Confucius, he was one of the first great philosophers. Born in China during 551 B.C., Confucius was a teacher, a politician, and a scholar. Throughout his life, he gave us nearly 500 famous sayings. Many of these can now be found in fortune cookies, but there was one lost nugget of advice that we stumbled upon while researching this wise man — Confucius says, “Try your luck with scholarships!” Who knew that he would have the foresight to encourage high school and college students to search for free money for college? We can only guess that getting an education back then literally cost an arm and a leg. Thank goodness students today don’t have to give a pound of flesh to earn their diploma, but it’s still a fairly expensive endeavor. With this in mind, we pay homage to Confucius by providing this short list of easy scholarships that require nothing more than just a bit of luck to win.
