Scholarships for the Working Joe (or Jane!)

In recognition of Labor Day, we wanted to take a moment to pay homage to those who contribute to the health and well-being of our nation on a daily basis. You know who were are talking about; the average working Joe or Jane who does what’s needed to ensure his or her family is provided for and our communities continue to run efficiently.  These hardworking citizens include postal and sanitation workers, law enforcement personnel, teachers, construction workers, nurses, and even those smiling people behind the deli counter who make your sandwich every afternoon. Without them, our lives wouldn’t be the same. That’s why this Labor Day holiday we’ve decided to highlight a few scholarship programs that are specifically for those who currently work in or are planning a career in these fields.

Five Scholarships for Bookworms

Did you know that August 9 is National Book Lover’s Day? It’s the perfect excuse to find a soft spot and read your favorite novel. Personally, my favorite place to get lost in a book is a warm bath, but it doesn’t come without some dangers. I have been known to doze off and drop my book in the water, or get so wrapped up in the story that I forget how long I have been in the tub. I usually snap back to reality when I start to shiver from the cold water and my toes have turned to prunes. Books are a wonderful way to escape, especially when you need a break from school or work. They can transport you to an alien world or bring back memories long forgotten. There’s something soothing about feeling the worn edges of a favorite book slip between your fingers. Of course, most people now consume their literature electronically, but that doesn’t lessen the power of the written word. And now, there’s an additional benefit to being a bonafide bookworm…scholarships! If you have a true thirst for reading, you can turn the pages of these books into another kind of paper — free money for college.

Say Goodbye to Summer With These August Scholarships

One more month. That’s it. It’s really hard to believe that the summer will soon be coming to an end. Where did the time go? It’s seems like only yesterday that students were taking final exams, enjoying proms, and looking forward to summer break. In just a few short weeks, many of those same students will be starting new lives on college campuses, and a new flock of high school seniors will launch head-first into the college admissions game. Incoming high school freshmen will eagerly begin their journeys, as well. No matter which stage students find themselves at this fall, one thing is for certain — now is the time to apply for scholarships! If they commit to completing one scholarship per day, students could realistically apply for 30 or more scholarships before classes begin. To help them meet this challenge, I have compiled a list of 10 August scholarships that don’t require too much work, and are open to a variety of students.

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.
