How Do Students Find Scholarships?

Many parents and students really want to know…how do students find scholarships? There are several great resources to help students find scholarships.  Students should consider contacting their high school guidance counselors, local clubs and organizations, employers, and even college financial aid departments to learn about potential scholarship opportunities. But they shouldn’t stop there. The Internet is teeming with additional resources to help students locate scholarships, too; there are scholarships listed on Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, and pretty much every other social media forum on the Web. Students can also conduct a Google or Bing search by using specific terms, such as ‘scholarships for high school seniors’ or ‘weird scholarships.’ These approaches may generate lists of scholarships, but students just might end up with lists that take hours to comb through. An easier way to locate potential awards is for students to use a free scholarship search service, such as It may take 10 to 15 minutes to complete the online profile, but students will receive a list of awards that are specific to their individual needs, skills, and talents. This cuts down on the time spent searching for awards and allows students to get to the important part… applying for scholarships.

Random Acts of Kindness

Let’s All Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day

When is the last time you did something nice for someone for no particular reason at all? It seems as though most of us have forgotten how to give without expecting something in return. As a mom, I am always suspicious whenever one of my children volunteers takes out the trash or offers to wash my car. Ninety-nine percent of the time it’s a ploy to butter me up for the ‘ask,’ which usually involves money leaving my purse. If you don’t typically go out of your way to do something special, or rarely Bake Cookieshelp strangers, today is the day to step out of your comfort zone; Random Acts of Kindness Day is a great way to have some fun and put a smile on a few faces. Consider purchasing some flowers and passing out one to each girl you meet on the way to class. Maybe you could bake muffins or cookies for your teachers? If you still live at home, surprise your parents with dinner at their favorite restaurant. The possibilities are endless.

Scholarships for Kids

You’re Never Too Young for Scholarships!

If you have been following my blog posts, you know that scholarships aren’t simply for high school seniors and current college students. There are many programs available to high school underclassmen, graduate schools, and even adults who are heading back to college or attending for the first time. But did you know that there are also ample opportunities for elementary and middle school students? It’s true! Unfortunately, due to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), online scholarship search services are not available to students under the age of 13, which can make finding these opportunities a little more difficult. That’s why I felt it was important to share with you some of the programs that are currently open (and others that will be opening soon) for younger students.

Scouting Scholarships

It Pays to Be a Boy Scout…Literally!

Who knew that getting lost in the fog would result in an organization that today includes over 2.6 million members between the ages of seven and seventeen? For those of you unfamiliar with the story, the Boy Scouts of America actually began after William D. Boyce lost his way in the fog during a trip to London. A young Boy Scout helped him find his way home, and Boyce was so impressed by his character that he worked to bring the Scouting organization to the United States. On February 8, the organization will celebrate its 104th anniversary, and to mark the occasion I have gathered a list of scholarship opportunities for those who have taken the pledge to keep themselves physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
