March scholarships

Spring Into Action With These March Scholarships!

Who knew that when Punxsutawney Phil declared there would be another six weeks of winter that most of the East Coast would be buried under mountains of snow? Enough already! Luckily, college financial aid doesn’t keep the same time table as our famous groundhog friend. Regardless of the temperature outside, there are always some scholarships available to help warm up your student bank account — like these fun March scholarships just waiting to spring into action.

10 Groundhog Day Scholarships

In case you didn’t know, today is Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil will be making his annual appearance and letting the world know whether we will be in for more cold weather or an early spring. Let’s hope it’s the latter. But, “Groundhog Day” is also one of my favorite Bill Murray movies. Its premise is fairly simple; Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) is sent to cover the Groundhog Day festivities at Gobbler’s Knob (PA), but he gets stuck in a never-ending replay of the day. Of course, hilarity ensues as he tries various ways to change the outcome until he finally gets it right. I know a few scholarships that are just like the movie. They’ll give you tons of chances to try, try again, and you can keep applying until you win. Where can you find these Groundhog’s Day scholarships? There’s no need to dig around the Internet. I’ve listed several of them right here.

is college worth it

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.

Confucius Says, “Try Your Luck With Scholarships!”

September 29 is Confucius Day. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Confucius, he was one of the first great philosophers. Born in China during 551 B.C., Confucius was a teacher, a politician, and a scholar. Throughout his life, he gave us nearly 500 famous sayings. Many of these can now be found in fortune cookies, but there was one lost nugget of advice that we stumbled upon while researching this wise man — Confucius says, “Try your luck with scholarships!” Who knew that he would have the foresight to encourage high school and college students to search for free money for college? We can only guess that getting an education back then literally cost an arm and a leg. Thank goodness students today don’t have to give a pound of flesh to earn their diploma, but it’s still a fairly expensive endeavor. With this in mind, we pay homage to Confucius by providing this short list of easy scholarships that require nothing more than just a bit of luck to win.

shout it out scholarship

Want a Scholarship? Just Shout It Out!

Have you ever just wanted to scream out something at the top of your lungs? Maybe you came across a derogatory comment on social media or saw a tweet that made absolutely no sense? Or, perhaps it was a discussion in one of your classes that brought you to the point of eruption? Sometimes, you just want to grab someone and see if you can shake the stupid out of them. Whatever the catalyst, we’ve all been there. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels, it’s easier than ever to express your opinion, share your knowledge, or just vent about what’s driving you insane. In fact, a single tweet can go around the world in mere seconds. That’s a pretty powerful platform when you think about it, and yet we generally use it to tell the world what we’re eating or crack jokes about the latest ‘ice bucket’ fails on YouTube. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we actually started to use these social outlets to spread good ideas or empower people. The possibilities would be endless.
