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.

Scholarships for Average Students

Average Student ScholarshipsAre you frustrated by the lack of scholarships that seem to be available to ‘average’ students? You’re not alone. The term ‘average’ indicates that you are the ‘norm’ when it comes to students, which means there are plenty of students just like you, but it often feels as though scholarship providers are only interested in those who score insane numbers on their SAT, have perfect grade point averages, or come from a low-income family. In other words, if there’s nothing ‘special’ about you, you’re out of luck. Thankfully, this is not the case. Although there are many scholarship programs that are merit-based or need-based, there are a slew of other scholarships that are targeted to any student, including those of you who consider yourself average. Here is a sampling of awards that any student, regardless of grades or income, can apply to and possibly win. Continue Reading…
