Economy – Woe is Me

Is the economy scaring you just as much as it is scaring me? Well, have no fear. Outside of the horrors of the Financial Aid world there are still many scholarships that are available to you.

The great thing about scholarships? You don’t have to pay them back!

When you need money the most, now is the time to become creative and start looking into the hundreds of thousands of scholarships that are out there.

Some Web sites – Scholarship Monkey, FastWeb, CollegeBoard, etc. – are great for general scholarships where you can match your criteria against any listed scholarship.

Look into where your partners, guardians, family, and friends work. Many companies and businesses give away scholarships that are not as well advertised as others. Look into Honor Societies like The National Society of Collegiate Scholars – NSCS provides more than $250,000 in scholarships!

Don’t let the financial climate scare you away from succeeding in college. Be creative – look into any area where a scholarship could be available.  You never know, you could end up going to college to for free!
