June Scholarships

June Scholarship Countdown

June is officially the first month of summer break; no more teachers, no more books and no more homework! Of course, it also tends to be the time of year that many students stop looking for scholarships because they believe that all the free money was handed out in the spring. This can be a costly mistake, especially for those who are still a bit short on college funding. What most students don’t realize is that June is actually an excellent time to start knocking out some serious scholarship applications. Students have more free time, so they can apply to more programs and increase their chances of winning. Here are just a few of the many scholarships available with upcoming June deadlines.

Easy Scholarships for Everyone!

Easy ScholarshipsAre you one of those students whose grade point average hovers between a 2.0 and 3.0? Do you dread the idea of writing long essays? Maybe you’re just an average, white male who thinks scholarship providers have passed you by. In any case, I have some great news. There are plenty of scholarship opportunities for students just like you!

Introducing ‘Shark Tank’ for Scholarships!

Shark TankI am a huge fan of the ABC television show Shark Tank. Each week, I tune in to see what new invention will send Mark Cuban, Mr. Wonderful, and the rest of the millionaires into a feeding frenzy. It’s quite entertaining to see the presenters squirm and stammer, as they try to convince everyone to invest. Although many walk away empty-handed, the exposure alone can help save their product from being shelved, so the stress is definitely worth it. In the past, I have actually tinkered with a few ideas myself.  Two of my ideas include stackable cribs for daycare centers (my husband said they looked like mini-prison cells) and a game that uses professional athlete’s jersey numbers to help teach children simple math problems (What do you get if you add Joe Flacco and Peyton Manning?), but I never did anything with them. Still, I hold out hope that something will give me inspiration and earn me enough money to retire. Continue Reading…


Scholarships for High School Seniors

Scholarships for SeniorsAre you one of those students who waited until your last semester of high school to start looking for college scholarships? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Every year, I encounter students (and parents) who mistakenly believe that scholarships are only available to graduating high school seniors or older students; most are unaware that they could have been applying for and winning scholarships since they were high school freshman. The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities still available, and many programs are specifically for high school seniors, just like you! If you are trying to figure out how you are going to pay for your college tuition this fall, here are some scholarships that may be able to help you reduce the amount of your final bill.

Does a College Education Matter?

Education Matters With the cost of a college education increasing each year, some people might say that a degree is no longer worth the time or the money it takes to earn one. It’s not uncommon to hear the horror stories about students who are drowning in student loan debt. Some students are leaving college with as much as $20,000, $40,000, or more in debt. Our economy has definitely not helped the situation, either. It’s no wonder many high school students are re-considering the value of a college education.

But for those who think an education doesn’t matter, consider this – Continue Reading…
