Think that you have to be a genius, or at the top of your class to win a scholarship? Or maybe you think you’re too old to get a scholarship?
Want me to tell you a secret?
It’s not true.
Every day, millions of students wonder about their financial future. Parents of those students wring their hands wondering if they’ll be able to pay for their children’s college. Adults who are going back to college are making a big choice, but with confidence. They know that going back to school will help…they just may not be sure how they’ll pay for it.
Studies show that a college degree is becoming more and more valuable because having a HS diploma is becoming less and less valuable. What does that mean? It means that doing well in High School and getting into college is more important than ever.
But how am I going to pay for it?
Wouldn’t we all like to go to College for free? Right? We can!
For example, think about buying a cell phone. If you’re buying a phone, wouldn’t you want to see if there were any ways to make it cheaper? If someone asked, “Send me a text: why will this phone help you?” and I’ll give you $100, wouldn’t you try it? Scholarship essays work exactly the same way.
