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.

November Scholarship Countdown

November ScholarshipsHave you noticed all the Christmas decorations going up in stores lately? Heck, even Santa Claus has already set up shop in my local mall. It seems as though November is quickly becoming the new December. Before we get ‘wrapped’ up in the Christmas spirit, let’s not forget that November is a time to thank military veterans for their service to our country and a time to gather for the Thanksgiving meal. For my family, Thanksgiving has always been a cherished tradition of stuffing our faces, watching football and taking a long afternoon nap. But before we devour mom’s glorious turkey, we also take a few moments to express what we are thankful for this past year. As a college graduate, that list has often included scholarships (I am definitely grateful for having less student loan debt!). So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m providing you with some tasty scholarships that are available right now. Just be sure to set aside some time to complete their applications before the month ends, or you’ll feel like a turkey for letting this money slip through your hands! Continue Reading…

October Scholarship Countdown

October Scholarships October has always been one of my favorite months; the temperature starts to cool, the leaves begin to change color, and my favorite pumpkin treats starting popping up everywhere! It’s also one of the busiest months of the year for charity fundraisers and awareness events. October hosts Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lupus Awareness Month, National Diabetes Month, and Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Phew! That’s a lot of walks and runs. Of course, most children (and some of us adults too!) are also interested in another celebration this month…Halloween! Everywhere I turn, a Reese’s peanut butter cup or Sugar Daddy is staring me in the face. Good thing I have all those charity events to help burn off the calories. With everything that is going on this month, it’s pretty easy to get sidetracked and neglect some of the other important tasks in our lives…like finding scholarships. So, consider the following list of October scholarships my treat to you! Continue Reading…

Choose Your Words Wisely!

Shout it Out Rarely does a person get an opportunity to address a nation or the world; it’s usually during times of great hardship or war. Even then, few are able to capture our attention for any length of time. It takes a certain skill, but given the right circumstances and speaker, words can start a movement or create change. Words can rally a nation to stand together or they can insight others to take action against injustice. Words can also provide comfort in a time of chaos, such as those spoken by President Bush addressing our nation after 9/11: Continue Reading…
