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.

financial game plan

What’s Your Financial Aid Game Plan?

It’s really never too early to start thinking about how you will pay for your child’s college education. If your child is still very young, now is a great time to consider opening a 529 Plan or a pre-paid college plan. You can increase the earnings in these funds quickly by getting family members involved. Encourage grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends to make a contribution to your child’s college fund in lieu of birthday or other holiday gifts. It’s also a good idea to encourage your child to save a percentage of his or her allowance, as this will teach your child the importance of planning ahead. But, what if your child is a high school senior or already in college? Is there any hope of getting enough financial aid to help cover his or her expenses? Yes, if you put together a solid financial game plan.

Scare Up Some Money With These October Scholarships

Ghosts, goblins, and zombies — oh, my! There’s nothing quite like the month of October to bring out your inner ghoul. If you’re a Walking Dead fan, we know you are eagerly counting down the days until the season premiere on October 12, but there’s also an abundance of horror movies on television to entertain and torture you throughout the month. And, even if you secretly cower under your blankets, you know it’s futile to resist; this month will be filled with screams of terror. Of course, if you really want a good scare, you could simply look at your college tuition bill. No amount of wooden stakes or silver bullets will make that disappear. But, there is one thing you can arm yourself with that might help vanquish it — scholarships! So, grab your computer and start applying soon because these October scholarships have a shorter shelf life than a vampire waiting to meet the sun.

Want a Scholarship? Just Shout It Out!

Have you ever just wanted to scream out something at the top of your lungs? Maybe you came across a derogatory comment on social media or saw a tweet that made absolutely no sense? Or, perhaps it was a discussion in one of your classes that brought you to the point of eruption? Sometimes, you just want to grab someone and see if you can shake the stupid out of them. Whatever the catalyst, we’ve all been there. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels, it’s easier than ever to express your opinion, share your knowledge, or just vent about what’s driving you insane. In fact, a single tweet can go around the world in mere seconds. That’s a pretty powerful platform when you think about it, and yet we generally use it to tell the world what we’re eating or crack jokes about the latest ‘ice bucket’ fails on YouTube. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we actually started to use these social outlets to spread good ideas or empower people. The possibilities would be endless.

10 Scholarships for Non-Traditional Students

There are many reasons why students may choose not to enroll in college directly after high school. Maybe they did not have the financial means to cover the cost of a college education, or perhaps they just needed an academic break. Some may have had family obligations that prevented them from focusing on a college degree or medical issues that made it impossible to attend classes. Whatever the reasons, those who chose to delay college, or return after an extended break, often find it difficult to get back on track. They may feel left behind and assume that there is insufficient financial aid available to assist them in obtaining their college diplomas, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
