Why Should You Win a $1,500 Scholarship?

Ever wonder why some students win scholarships and others don’t? Do they have some special talent or gift, or are they somehow blessed with incredible luck? In all honesty, it really depends on the type of scholarship. For merit-based scholarships, having a stellar grade point average (GPA) and high college exam scores is a definite must, but not a guarantee that you’ll win. Why? Simply put, your grades are probably not as unique as you perceive them to be. The same can be true for need-based aid, as well. Tons of students are in similar financial situations, and they all need help. Choosing a winner can be difficult in these cases, and it’s often a personal statement, letter of recommendation, or an essay that gives the winner the edge over all the other candidates. But, what if you don’t have perfect grades or you come from a middle-class family — are you out of luck? Nope. We know you possess something that sets you apart from other students, and that’s why we created the Top Ten List Scholarship.

Is College Still Worth It?

Are you worried that the cost of college has become too much or that a college education isn’t worth it anymore? It’s understandable when you see stories about this year’s college graduates leaving with an average of $33,000 in student loan debt. Ouch! That’s enough to make anyone think twice about enrolling. But, what you may neglect to consider is the benefits package you will receive by earning a degree. Yes, we know that there are people who have been successful without a college diploma (Bill Gates for one), but in general, your earning potential drops considerably without that little piece of paper. There are other benefits, too. For example, college is a place where you can be exposed (in more ways than one!) to other cultures and new ways of thinking. It will challenge your view of the world and even yourself. You’ll also have the opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, and you may find a new career or life path. Some would even argue that what you gain in knowledge and life experiences at college is priceless.

Check Out Our New Periodic Table of Scholarships!

Do you remember your high school or college chemistry class? You probably had your share of fun trying weird experiments or mixing chemicals, but there may have been one thing you really hated to learn…the periodic table of elements. memorizing elementsSure, a few elements were pretty easy to memorize with some creative tactics (AU, I want some gold!), but a lot of it made absolutely no sense. For example, why is potassium represented by the letter K, and why is FE used for iron? There’s proably a perfectly logical explanation (look them up on Google) why those letters are used, but that doesn’t make it any easier to remember them. Thankfully, ScholarshipExperts.com has found a way to use the periodic table in a manner that makes perfect sense…with scholarships!
