Does anyone have any scholarship opportunities that they've been gatekeeping?

I want to go to an Ivy and then law school, and my parents have to pay for my 2 sisters´ college too; they can't afford both. Someone help me out, please. I'm a two-sport varsity athlete (tennis and field hockey), I play trumpet, piano, and flute, and I'm a really good public speaker who's not afraid to be embarrassed or uncomfortable.

Navigating the financial challenges of pursuing higher education can be daunting, especially when aiming for prestigious institutions like the Ivy League and law school. As a two-sport varsity athlete in tennis and field hockey, a talented musician proficient in trumpet, piano, and flute, and a confident public speaker unafraid of discomfort, your diverse skill set is undoubtedly impressive. While I don't have specific gatekept scholarship opportunities, I recommend exploring athletic scholarships, music scholarships, and scholarships for leadership or public speaking achievements. Additionally, look into scholarship programs offered by specific universities, private organizations, or foundations that align with your academic and extracurricular achievements. Utilize online scholarship search engines and connect with your high school guidance counselor to discover potential opportunities that may help alleviate the financial burden on your family. Your dedication and multifaceted talents make you a strong candidate for various scholarships, and with perseverance, you can pave the way toward achieving your academic and career goals.

Hi (again), Shannon. This article from U.S. News & World Report lists colleges that will help you attend without loans - https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/paying-for-college/articles/schools-that-meet-full-financial-need-with-no-loans. Instead, they help you meet financial need with scholarships, work-study, and summer employment. Several Ivies are on that list.

Also, you may want to look into honors colleges at other institutions. It varies from college to college, but some honors colleges include full tuition, special programs and advising, and dedicated housing.

Good luck!

Terrell’s Answer

So many students need to pay more attention to their best resource- their high school counselor. Start there. Ask your counselor for a list of scholarships available for local students. Once you start researching, Pandora's box will open. Research leads you to other options. As mentioned, fraternities and sororities have plenty of money to give away. They sometimes can't find enough students because so many students don't take the time out to search for scholarships (don't let this be you). Best of luck!

Apply for financial aid, university scholarships, scholarships from your town, and bargain with the school. Student loans are also an option.

Grant’s Answer

Explore various fraternal organizations. It's a known fact that the Independent Order of Odd Fellows offers several scholarships. Some of these scholarships don't even require you to have a family member who is an Odd Fellow or a Rebekah. I am confident that other groups like the Masons, the Knights of Pythias, the Knights of Columbus, Elks, Moose, Eagles, Foresters, and so on, also offer scholarships. If you're into public speaking, Toastmaster funds might be available for you.
