November scholarships

Be Thankful for These November Scholarships

Can you believe Thanksgiving will be here in just a few short weeks? It’s a time not only to enjoy the company of your family and friends (and tons of great food!), but also to reflect upon what you may be grateful for this past year. For new college students, it may be something as simple as surviving your first mid-terms. High school seniors, on the other hand, may simply be thankful for the short break from college applications (breathe, it’s almost over!). We, of course, are thankful for each and every student, parent, and educator who trusts us to help him or her find free money for college. In keeping with the giving spirit of the holiday, we’ve assembled a bountiful list of November scholarships. But, you have to hurry because just like pumpkin pie at grandma’s house, these will disappear soon!

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.
