Graduate Scholarships

Graduate Scholarships & Other Ways to Pay for College

Earlier this year, I posted a blog giving students advice on where to find graduate scholarships and it seemed to resonate with many students. Several have contacted me seeking additional information on how to fund their graduate degree programs, so I thought it might be time to delve deeper into the subject. One student, Christian, asked:

“It doesn’t seem like there are many scholarships for graduate students available. Is that true? Is it worth looking for scholarships? Are there other sources of funding I should be thinking about?”

These are all very good questions, Christian. 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…

LGBT Scholarships

Scholarship Resources for LGBT Students

Did you know that President Obama has officially declared June as LGBT Pride Month? For many, this is seen as a positive step toward eliminating prejudice against lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered people across America. According to a 2011 report from The Williams Institute, approximately 9 million Americans identify as LGBT. Unfortunately, many of them still do not have the same rights and freedoms as their heterosexual neighbors. An alarming number of students still face constant verbal bullying and physical threats at schools and within their communities. Even college campuses can prove to be breeding grounds for intolerance. Thankfully, there are many organizations that seek to help LGBT students not only embrace who they are, but also help them obtain the necessary funding to complete their college educations. If you identify as LGBT, or fight to protect the rights of the LGBT community, check out the following resources for scholarships that can be used for an undergraduate degree or other educational programs.

Scholarships for Men

This Sunday is Father’s Day, so I thought it might be nice to highlight some of the available scholarships for men. Over the years, I have seen the frustration that many men feel when they are searching for free money for college. Many find it difficult to locate scholarships that don’t require them to be a high school student or part of a minority group. Although there are more scholarship programs that target these demographics, there are several scholarships set aside specifically for men who are 18 years or older. In some cases, they will need to be members of a certain fraternity or be pursuing a specific career path, but others are open to just about any guy who could use a little help paying for college. Take a look at some of the scholarships for men that are currently accepting applications.

Duck Scholarships

Don’t ‘Duck’ These Unusual Scholarships

Eighty year ago, Walt Disney created a stubborn, but lovable, character named Donald Duck. He has become so popular that June 9 has been declared Donald Duck Day. Personally, I never was a big fan. I always thought it was weird that he wore a shirt but refused to put on pants. What’s up with that? And don’t even get me started on his temper. The slightest little thing could set him off. But, that doesn’t mean I dislike all our feathered friends, real or animated. On the contrary, there are many things I love about those cute, waddling birds. One of which is scholarships. No, I’m not loony — there are several waterfowl and duck-themed programs just waiting to be plucked. Here are just a few unusual scholarships that are floating around the pond.
