Eco-Friendly Students May Earn Some ‘Green’ for College

Engergy Awareness Month: Royd Moor Wind FarmJust about everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Everywhere you look, you see pink: grocery stores, clothing retailers and even the National Football League.  But, did you realize that October is also a ‘green’ month? It’s true! October is Energy Awareness Month, a time to look at alternative methods to creating and using energy resources on our planet and in our daily lives.

Most students have probably had the opportunity to participate in some form of recycling or ‘green’ campaign at school. You may have even started to ‘go green’ at home: reducing energy consumption, wasting less water and recycling your trash. If you are concerned about the effects of global warming and the depletion of our natural resources, you may be excited to learn that many companies and organizations are ready to reward you for your commitment to the environment and your community. Take a look at some programs that reward students for ‘going green’ by putting a little extra green in your pockets for college. Continue Reading…


Don’t Rely on a Full-Ride Scholarship: Apply to Multiple Scholarships

Each year, as students begin the process of applying to college, many come face-to-face with the harsh reality of what it actually costs to earn a degree. Some may have an inkling of how the expenses add up (tuition, room & board, lab fees, books and more), but most don’t really grasp the total cost until they receive their college financial aid letters. Hopefully, you have some college savings stashed away, and maybe you began your search for scholarships as soon as you entered high school with the help of a free scholarship matching service like ScholarshipExperts.com.

If there are 20.4 million students attending college in the United States, that means only about .1% of all college students receive institutional full-ride scholarships each year (National Center for Education Statistics, 2009).

Become a Woman of Achievement

September is Women of Achievement month. It’s time to pause and think about all the amazing women that have helped to change and shape the world: Marie Curry, Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Earhart and more. Because these women were educated and passionate about life, they were able to make important contributions during their lifetimes.

It’s also time to stop and think about how we can encourage those around us to become Women of Achievement in today’s society…and it typically begins with education. Despite the pressures and demands that women regularly juggle with work and families, women are finding time to attend college and expand their knowledge. Pursuing a post-secondary degree in addition to meeting the demands of a career while raising a family might seem impossible, but trust us, the rewards of a college education far outweigh the sacrifices one will make for a few short years.
