Scholarships and Grants



College tuition and expenses can be very expensive, so when our daughter was a first semester senior in high school my husband and I started to research grants, scholarships, student loans and financial aid information. We helped her apply for scholarships reserved for students with high grade point averages. We solicited college basketball scholarship money since she was the most valuable player on her high school varsity basketball team two years in a row.  There were many avenues to search including outstanding students from low income family scholarships. School scholarship.org provides helpful information about a variety of scholarships and prepares you on how to put your best foot forward in the application process before engaging in the competitive reviews. They provide information for athletic scholarships, family scholarships, minority scholarships, low income grants, subject scholarships and many more. One of the scholarships that most people will never guess that exists is the left handed students scholarship. There is only one school that offers this scholarship and one of the qualifications to apply is the student must be left-handed.  Along with being left-handed the student must have good academic performance and excellent leadership skills. This scholarship fund was inspired by very popular and successful people who are left-handed including: Albert Enstein, Picasso, President's Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton to name a few. Our family was blown away with the plethora of information we gleaned from this website.

A college degree is one of our families top priorities.  Since birth our children have learned from us that someone who has a college degree has a better chance of success in life than someone without a college degree.   Going to college for our children was something our children expected to do since entering elementary school.  One of our family sayings is, "Education is the only thing in life no one can ever steal from you and it is the only thing that lasts forever."  Finding the right resources to pay for education is found at school scholarship.org

If you have family or friends going to college, please share this helpful financial aid information web site. What you will share can be a life changing event for everyone.

  6. Government scholarships and private funding for education is a welcome trend these times without having to worry about paying it off by getting stuck in a job that is required after graduating. It's a welcome development that hopefully will overthrow the need for student loans which has tend to become more as a vicious cycle that continues to burden every graduate year in and year out.
