Graduate Scholarships

Graduate Scholarships & Other Ways to Pay for College

Earlier this year, I posted a blog giving students advice on where to find graduate scholarships and it seemed to resonate with many students. Several have contacted me seeking additional information on how to fund their graduate degree programs, so I thought it might be time to delve deeper into the subject. One student, Christian, asked:

“It doesn’t seem like there are many scholarships for graduate students available. Is that true? Is it worth looking for scholarships? Are there other sources of funding I should be thinking about?”

These are all very good questions, Christian.

Think Outside the Box

Think Outside the Box When Searching for Scholarships

A few months ago, I wrote a post called ‘Where Have All the Scholarships Gone?’ It was in response to the numerous postings I came across on Facebook and Twitter where students professed that they were unable to find scholarships anywhere. It included some of the widely known resources for locating college money, such as free scholarship search tools and guidance counselors, as well as a few new ways to locate free money.

I hate to sound harsh and call these students lazy, but I am dumbfounded by the lack of motivation or creativity some of them exude. When I was actively searching for scholarships, I literally left no stone unturned. Heck, I even turned over a few couch cushions in my quest to find money; every dollar found was one less I would have to repay in student loans. If you are having difficulty locating college scholarships, just remember to think outside the box, and try these lesser-known avenues for finding free money for college.

Where to Find Scholarships

Where Have All the Scholarships Gone?

If you believe half of the students on Twitter and Facebook, there seems to be a shortage of scholarships these days. Routinely, I get tweets from discouraged kids and adults who swear they’ve looked everywhere for them, but can’t seem to find any. I’m not sure if they are waiting for the ‘Scholarship Genie’ to magically drop free money into their laps or they think people will simply call them up and offer them an award, but there are definitely scholarships waiting to be won. It doesn’t take a genius to locate them either; just a general understanding of where to start and a little effort is all that is needed. So, where have all the scholarships gone? Follow me and I’ll tell you where to find them.
